Figure Fantasy: The Pop Culture Photography Of Daniel Picard (book review).

If you search engine ‘Daniel Picard’ and ‘images’ you were undoubtedly see samples of his delightful photos on-line. As we don’t have official permission from the publisher, that’s the way you’ll have to look, see the link at the bottom of the review, but you’ll see more than the four we might have shown here. […]

Jose del Nido’s Slayers: Women Of War (book review).

As you should know from time to time, I pick out an odd publisher that I haven’t encountered before and look at one of their book. Case in point is SQP Art Books. Their website currently reveals a small range of books, even though they’ve been 40 years in the business, based off the selection […]

Michael Whelan’s Works Of Wonder (book review).

Several months back, I reviewed an old Michael Whelan book, ‘Wonderworks: Science Fiction & Fantasy Art’, and said I would cover his other book from the same period at a later date. Meet the later date and ‘Michael Whelan’s Works Of Wonder’ and much of his work from the mid-1970s-1980s, mostly for Del Rey, got […]

Comic Book Artist No. 3 Winter 1999    (magazine review)

One of the odd side effects of reading some of TwoMorrows books and website is seeing the adverts for earlier editions of their books and magazines and then finding, especially with the latter, that they are out of print and only available digitally. If I’m especially interested in a particular title, then I would do […]

The Art Of Mad Max: Fury Road by Abbie Bernstein (book review).

Oddly, I never saw the original ‘Max Max’ trilogy, not helped by its infrequent showing on TV, although I suspect with ‘Max Max: Fury Road’ now out, some of the UK TV channels will do something about that. Director/creator George Miller depended heavily on storyboards to make his fourth film in his series and considering […]

Out Of Line: The Art Of Jules Feiffer by Martha Fay (book review).

Back in the early 70s, I only learnt the name of Jules Feiffer from the 1964 book he compiled ‘The Great Comic Book Heroes’ and not so much about his own work. With Martha Fay’s ‘Out Of Line: The Art Of Jules Feiffer’ (1965), I can now rectify this and see what he does as […]

Planet Story by Harry Harrison and illustrated by Jim Burns (book review).

Planet Story by Harry Harrison and illustrated by Jim Burns (book review).

Having read Harry Harrison’s autobiography recently, I said I would look at ‘Planet Story’ that he wrote to provide a medium to allow upcoming artist, at the time, Jim Burns to hang some art from. The amount of art out-distances the amount of text but in this size book, that was always likely to happen. […]

The Art Of Neal Adams (art book review).

In many respects, ‘The Art Of Neal Adams’ is a whistle-stop tour of at least fifty years in the famous comicbook artist’s career and showing how extensively he’s been able to find work in everything from there to advertising to storyboarding and is still in continuous demand in his seventies. Back when I was growing […]

Journeyman: The Art Of Chris Moore by Stephen Gallagher (book review).

In many respects you can blame astro-artist David A. Hardy for this review. We were discussing artists and one he raised that I’d forgotten about was Chris Moore. I looked around on the Net and found there was a book of his art released in 2000 and got it at a nice price. As publisher […]

Chappie: The Art Of The Movie by Neill Blomkamp and Peter E. Aperlo (book review).

As I’m still getting acquainted with Chappie, the robot star of this self-named film, I thought what better way than reading the book and seeing the art that is used to compose it. ‘Although called ‘Chappie: The Art Of The Movie’, it also gives insight into the characters as well as the high tech and […]
