Wally Wood Sketchbook compiled by J. David Spurlock & Bill Pearson (book review).

Having reviewed Vanguard’s ‘Sketchbooks’ for Neal Adams and John Buscema in recent years, the chance to get the ‘Wally Wood Sketchbook’, released in 2000 at a lot price was too much of a temptation to resist.

If you want to be inspired by various aspects of nature and the natural world […]

Don Lawrence: Illustrators And Comic Strip Art: An Illustrators Special #3 (book review).

I’m beginning to feel old when I say you have to be a certain age to remember British comicbook Don Lawrence (1928-2003). If I say ‘The Trigan Empire’, you should suddenly say, ‘Oh, that’s the artist’, then you should make the connection. Looking at his career in this third special from The Book Palace, ‘Don […]

In the introduction to this latest edition of ‘Illustrators’, comicbook artist Dave Gibbons points out that being an artist’s agent was a good living in the 1950s and he joined their agency much later.

The Art Of Incredibles 2 by Karen Paik (book review).

I only saw the first ‘Incredibles’ a couple years ago, a little worried about super-hero parodies which it oddly wasn’t and happily enjoyed it. More so, as that film was made 15 years ago and, even under CGI, hasn’t dated that much. Then again, I accept the rules of any film I watch unless they […]

With the dust having settled on ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ and the franchise’s own fandom becoming entangled in a Sarlacc pit of self-loathing that has reportedly caused Disney and Lucasfilm to review the next planned movies, how refreshing it is to lose oneself in one another of Abrams’ excellent examinations of the movies’ production […]

Draw #26 Fall 2013 (magazine review).

As you can tell, as I dip back 5 years, from the 26th cover of ‘Draw!’, the opening interview is with Joe Jusko, cover artist for many a comicbook cover and poster. He reveals, early in his career, he experimented with various mediums before settling on LiquidTex acrylics because it dries fast. I tend to […]

Last Ship Home by Rodney Matthews (book review).

After seeing some samples of Rodney Matthews’ artwork in Illustrators # 21 a few months back, I looked around to see if I could pull any of his books. From the looks of things, despite all his posters, book and album covers, there aren’t that many. ‘Last Ship Home’ was the second book he did […]
