Phil Foglio has been active in science fiction fandom since the mid-1970s, winning the Hugo for "Best Fan Artist" in 1977 and 1978. He illustrated many Star Trek: TOS zines, filk collections, and was active at science fiction conventions, moving into professional illustration with Robert Asprin's "Myth Adventures" series.
In the 1980s, he created the "XXXenophile" adult (sexual comic series), comics about Dungeons and Dragons and other Role-Paying Games. In the 1990s, with his wife Kaja Foglio, he illustrated many "Magic: The Gathering" game collectible cards.
Inspired by KlingonsThe Klingon Empire Appointment Calendar was the inspiration for Phil Foglio:
The first convention I went to was TorCon 2 in 1973, where I saw an ad for a thing called the ‘Klingon Empire Appointment Calendar’ – which I thought sounded really cool. So I wrote and said, ‘Gosh, I’d sure like one of those,’ and did a little drawing next to my name. The editor, Paula Smith, wrote back saying, ‘Here’s your calendar. Thank you very much, and by the way, love the little thing next to your name. Would you like to do some art for us?’ That’s how I got started doing fan art.
