The Art of Fish

Welcome back to an amazing ally of SFS and a wicked artist!

It’s a guy we all love, it’s FISH!!!

A familiar and friendly face on the convention circuit, Sheikh Islam (Fish) is a self-taught free hand artist who doesn’t let his colour blindness stop him from creating breath-taking pieces in the science fiction, horror and fantasy genres that he loves. Utilising a number of different mediums whilst painting, he creates live freehand pieces at events. He has worked on various licensed card sets for TOPPS, including Lucasfilm approved Star Wars artwork and even TMNT cards for Nickolodeon. He has also provided prizes for competitions for Topps Europe in the run up to SOLO releasing. Here are some of the official sets he has worked on…….
