Fantastic Science-Fiction Art: 1926-1954 by Lester Del Rey (book review).

For those of you wanting to complete your SF cover art collection, Lester Del Rey’s 1975 book, ‘Fantastic Science-Fiction Art: 1926-1954’, is still out there and I was surprised how reasonably easy it was to get a mint copy. I say ‘reasonably’ simply because reviewing a copy here might reduce the number of copies available. […]

Steampunk: Fantasy Art, Fashion, Fiction & The Movies by Henry Winchester (book review).

I broke my own rule and bought this book, ‘Steampunk’ by Henry Winchester, solely impressed by the cover and the realisation that it might appeal to the steampunk fans who visit SFC. The sub-title is ‘Fantasy, Art, Fiction, Fashion And The Movies’ so covers a lot of ground in what is considered ‘Victorian Science Fiction’ […]

Steve Rude Sketchbook (artbook review).

I managed to locate a copy of the 1989 artbook, ‘Steve Rude Sketchbook’, mostly to follow up what he’d been saying in recent reading of interviews he did over at TwoMorrows publications and wanted to see something of his early work. I never read his and Mike Barron’s ‘Nexus’ when young but I am interested […]

Maxfield Parrish by Laurence S. Cutler, Judy Goffman And The American Illustrators Gallery (book review).

Who would have thought that I could pull a very large book such as ‘Maxfield Parrish’ by Laurence S. Cutler, Judy Goffman And The American Illustrators Gallery in such good condition and 20 years after the ‘Maxwell Parrish’ by Coy Ludiwick book I reviewed last month. Even so, this book was released in 1993. If […]

Draw! #14 Summer 2007 (magazine review).

I’m rarely surprised when I come across comicbook artists that I’ve never heard of in ‘Draw!’ as there are a lot of them out there and Doug Mahnke is amongst those. Even so, as interviewed by Michael Manley back in 2007, he does present some interesting insights. With the older artists like Steve Ditko, their […]

Draw! #11 Summer 2005 (magazine review).

The first interview in Draw! # 11 is with Steve Rude. I rather enjoyed his more recent interview in ‘Comic Book Creator # 18 from 2018, so seeing what he was like 13 years earlier making ends meet in an even longer interview was interesting. I can agree with him how artist equipment that work […]
