Gerry Embleton, Veteran Illustrator for Osprey Publishing, Retires

Gerry Embleton, responsible for igniting a fire in many of our imaginations, has announced his retirement from illustration after 43 years in the business. From the Osprey Blog:

At the age of 77, and having illustrated nearly 60 Men-at-Arms, Elite and Warrior titles (see list below) and contributed to about a dozen more in other series, nobody can say that he owes us anything. On the contrary: we owe him an enormous debt, not only for his own books, but for playing a central part in the improvement of illustration standards back in the 1970s. It was Gerry, alongside the late Richard Hook and Angus McBride. who raised the bar for everybody when the series was still feeling its way.

Thanks for all your hard work, Mr. Embleton.
