Tad Ermitano. The artist was forced into the hell of art making as consequence of his enemies' envy of his enormous pencil and mastery of the black arts of nuclear canelloni. In revenge, he conquered the three continents of Fairyland by masquerading as five of their seven dead kings and obtained the Dread Dagger of Demosthenes by which he obtained dominion over the twin race of Electrons and Positrons that mortal scientists have confused with inanimate matter and probability waves. In his next work, the artist plans to have the two races meet in battle, guaranteeing an antimatter conflagration that should end the known Universe.
