Lee Moyer is an American painter, illustrator, graphic designer, Web designer, poster artist and painter of comic books, games and pin-ups.

Biography[edit]

Moyer's early work was in watercolor and oils. In 1989, he expanded into digital art, which has since become his focus. While building his freelance career and expanding his skill set, he worked for ten years as a Docent and Naturalist Illustrator at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History.[1]

Moyer considers his primary influences to be Art Nouveau, Art Deco, Arts & Crafts, Classic American Illustrators, propaganda art and the Pre-Raphaelites.[2]

Illustration[edit]

He has done commissioned illustrations for corporate clients, including Paramount Pictures, Sony Pictures, 20th Century Fox, Discovery Channel, Electronic Arts, Hasbro, DDB Worldwide, Upper Deck, CareerBuilder, BET, McGraw Hill, Alliance Theatre, Dark Horse, IDW Publishing, Broadway Play Publishing Inc. and the National Zoo in Washington, D.C.[3]

Moyer created commissioned posters that evoke the style of Alphonse Mucha for musicians such as Tori Amos and Melissa Auf der Maur (Hole, The Smashing Pumpkins). Moyer did a signing of the poster with Melissa Auf der Maur on July 22, 2010, at the San Diego Comic-Con International.[4]

20th Century Fox commissioned him to create eight Laurel and Hardy paintings for the covers of their DVD box set collections.[5]

His digital work was featured with 13 leading graphic designers in the exhibition, "PIXEL: Artists Who Use the Computer."[6]

Moyer painted the cover for the documentary Lovecraft: Fear of the Unknown, a profile of author H.P. Lovecraft and the impact of his Cthulhu books on culture by director Frank H. Woodward.[7]

The New York Times nominated his work for a Webby Award in 1999.[8]

His painting "Theora" won the 2012 Chesley Award for Best Cover Illustration: Magazine. He was nominated for 3 awards in 2012.[9]

Pin-up calendars[edit]

In 2011, Moyer partnered with the literary charity Worldbuilders to publish his first Literary Pin-up Calendar "Check These Out!"™ for the 2012 calendar year featuring classic authors such as Mark Twain, Lewis Carroll, and Alexander Dumas.[14] The proceeds from the calendar went to the charity Heifer International.[15]

The 2013 Calendar was also published by Worldbuilders, this time with a line-up of modern fantasy authors including Neil Gaiman, George R. R. Martin, Charlaine Harris, Ray Bradbury, Terry Pratchett, Jacqueline Carey, and N. K. Jemisin. Moyer said that he was "inspired by the idea of strength and competence with beauty, brains, and a whole lot of muscle" for his illustration of Mercy Thompson, from Patricia Briggs' bestselling paranormal series. "This is a girl who can take care of herself, and you'd be lucky to have her working on your car. It was a delight to paint her. And moreover to create an old-school garage calendar—not only matching the format of those classic pieces as best I could, but riffing on the style of pin-up great George Petty."[16]

Comics[edit]

Starstruck

Main article: Starstruck (comics)

Moyer did writing, painting and design for the critically acclaimed science fiction series, Starstruck, with author Elaine Lee and illustrator Michael Wm. Kaluta.

In 2009, he was instrumental in reviving the series for IDW Publishing, after showing Kaluta samples of how the series could be redone with Moyer's painterly color. IDW released a remastered series of 13 issues from August 2009 to September, 2010 that featured expanded art by Kaluta, a complete repainting of the series, and unpublished back-up stories of the Galactic Girl Guides. He also reformatted word balloons and archival art and designed new ancillary art.[17]

The IDW remastered series was collected as a large-format hardcover omnibus called the Starstruck Deluxe Edition and released by IDW on March 29, 2011.[18]

Elaine Lee collaborated with Lee Moyer on the book design and layouts for the Starstruck Deluxe Edition. For three decades, Elaine Lee and Michael Wm. Kaluta have been the sole copyright owners and creators of the series, but they felt that Moyer's contribution merited listing him as a co-creator for the collected book.

Moyer did the color for the wraparound cover of the Starstruck Audioplay CD, a cast recording of the original Starstruck play, that was produced and sold by The AudioComics Company as a CD and MP3 download in October, 2010.[19]

Roleplaying games[edit]

Moyer contributed to designing video games, board games and game packaging[citation needed]. He collaborated with game designer Keith Baker on the board game, "The Doom That Came To Atlantic City", a spoof that transplants the mythos of H.P. Lovecraft to New Jersey.[21] The game was picked up by Cryptozoic in July 2013.[22]

Moyer's Dungeons & Dragons work includes interior art for Eberron Campaign Setting (2004), Stormwrack (2005), and the fourth edition Player's Handbook (2008), Dungeon Master's Guide (2008), Draconomicon (2008), and Martial Power (2008).

He was the creative director and co-founder of Digital Addiction.

He was the lead illustrator for "13th Age" and its expansion "13 True Ways" and shared title credits with the designers Rob Heinsoo and Jonathan Tweet and fellow illustrator Aaron McConnell.[23]
