Dunno, but I certainly wish she'd get to do something in the Prog.  Pin-ups might be nice, for starters...

Deserves better?

Snark aside, Judge Dredd: 2099 might be a good fit.

Fay Dalton on anything would be cool. That Anderson pin-up last year was stunning. Her Reaper stuff was packed full of character & style. I hope she's busy elsewhere - I see the odd variant cover.

From Project Sketchbook (one of two things she kindly did for me)...

This just in from the awesome talent that is Fay Dalton.  Jaw - meet floor.

Because illustration and advertising work pays better than Tharg? She may fall foul of the new puritanism afflicting the culture* - everything she draws is sexy.

Anyway, I heartily endorse the call for more Dalton.


* Her women aren't conspicuously strong or independent enough to pass social media scrutiny. I remember one male feminist criticising one of her retro pulp paperback covers because the female was in her underwear while the male figure was reclining on the bed, wearing a shirt and tie.

She drew a fun cover for me if they ever collect Pat's run on Dan Dare.

But imagine her on Dan Dare!
