Dear Readers,When I was about eight years old I had the great luck of stumbling upon my father's collection of Classics Illustrated comic books. Many years later, when I became enthusiastic about illustration, I found the beautiful hardbound editions of these stories featuring the arresting artwork of incredible artists like N. C. Wyeth, Howard Pyle, and Maxfield Parrish. When I was asked to produce images for the Deluxe Edition of Rick Riordan's The Lightning Thief it was a dream come true. The Lightning Thief has so several wonderful moments it was challenging to choose what to paint, but I knew I wanted to produce a balance of dramatic scenes and quiet moments and to capture the spirit of Rick's unforgettable characters. That promise is what I tried to accomplish when creating the pictures for this incredible series. It was my chance to illustrate what I contemplate to create to grow to be a new classic. My approach has never been just to describe a scene from the book, but to make an illustration that offers tension and mystery--an image that provides just adequate information to leave the viewer wanting to know more. I hope you enjoy this Deluxe Edition of The Lightning Thief. It has been my own great adventure to assist bring this book to life in a new way, in color, on the page. I instantly fell in love utilizing the stories of Robert Louis Stevenson, Mark Twain, H. G. Wells, and James Fenimore Cooper. That promise let me know that if I study the words surrounding that picture, I could unlock the adventure. What I love about their paintings is not just the beautiful draftsmanship, color and composition, but their ability to capture a moment that held the promise of swashbuckling adventure. Yours, John
