Echos From The Darkside by: Tom Masse Poster - 32" x 22"
Growing up in the small, Appalachian town of Dublin, Virginia, Tom remembers always having some drawing utensil and paper in hand, trying to duplicate on paper everything he saw. His parents, who have always encouraged his talents and interests, paid for art lessons at the age of ten, where he recalls sketching with pencil and pastel the surrounding lakes and mountain-scapes. He continued with art classes through high school, where as a teenager he won a national competition and scholarship in Anaheim, California for painting and sculpture. His interest in fictional and historical literature soon turned into an obsession with fantasy art and films. He started collecting everything he could find on visionary themes, from science fiction magazines to graphic books on mythology and ancient history. After high school, deciding that his true passion lied in art, he passed up all other opportunities and pursued his goal, enrolling into the art program at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond.
