Comic Oasis in Las Vegas is owned by Derrick Taylor. The store is currently nominated for the Will Eisner Comic Industry Award, the industry's highest honor. He was a super nice guy who had a really great attitude toward his business. One of the things the store is known for is bringing in people like Spiderman creator Stan Lee and Lee Bermejo, who has designed many of the Steven King book covers. He also has them do limited edition printings just for the store. I took some photos inside the store, but liked the superhero mural that was painted on the outside of the building's windows. I tried to light the photo so the he would look similar a comic book character.
Les Grossman is a longtime concert promoter and entertainment executive who has worked with acts like The Who and Led Zepplin. He is such an interesting guy that he is portrayed by Tom Cruise in the movie Tropic Thunder. He lives on the edge of Vegas, so I decided to meet him at his home for the photo. I took a bunch of photos, but liked these the best because of a the great light you get at night in Las Vegas when the city's lights bounce off the clouds.
