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 […]

They Drew As They Pleased Volume 6: The Hidden Art Of Disney’s Early Renaissance: The 1990s To 2020 by Didier Ghez (book review).

In many respects, Didier Ghez’ final book in the series, ‘They Drew As They Pleased Volume 6: The Hidden Art Of Disney’s Early Renaissance: The 1990s To 2020’ is more like a combination of loose ends and other recent ideas artists at Disney, although these are selected mostly because they are still mostly alive. Even […]

Fantasy Art: The Best In Fantasy And SF Art Worldwide by Dick Jude (book review).

I pulled ‘Fantasy Art: The Best In Fantasy And SF Art Worldwide’ by Dick Jude 5 years back and only now working through my bought books decided it was time to give it a proper read. I’m always amazed when I can get a near-mint copy of a book at such a low price. Bargains […]

Maxwell Parrish by Coy Ludiwick   (book review)

The name ‘Maxwell Parrish’ kept popping up in The Book Palace’s ‘Illustrators’ magazine and even in one of TwoMorrows magazines recently and stuck in my head to investigate. One point that is always raised is that when Parrish approached Howard Pyle for art education, he told him there was nothing he could teach him. With […]

The Life And Art Of Alfred Kubin (book review).

I have to confess I bought my copy of ‘The Life And Art Of Alfred Kubin’ and can’t really remember where I pulled my copy from. As it is also a Dover Publication, I suspect when the lockdown eases, they’ll no doubt get a reprint back into circulation as they like artbooks. Alfred Kubin (1877-1959) […]

Draw! #8 Spring 2004 (magazine review).

I decided it was cheaper to buy Draw! # 8 Spring 2004 as part of a multi-bundle from TwoMorrows than individuals issues. Even reviewers have to buy back issues and in the current isolation, hopefully find some time to draw and paint. I find these mags inspiring and fun to read. Although this issue is […]

Jeffrey Jones: A Life In Art (book review).

Getting hold of ‘Jeffrey Jones: A Life In Art’ as a sample of his/her work was tough enough and this was a second edition. With this book, Jeffrey Catherine Jones (1944-2011) explained in his own words his history and transgender issues. I’m going to stick to the feminine pronoun from here in. It gets confusing […]

Corpus Delicti by Serge Birault (book review).

I can’t really recall how I came across Serge Birault but googled his art, jaw dropped, saw he had a book out there and ordered one up. It’s also a bilingual book with text in French and English. Birault looks like he turned all of his sketches into paintings on PhotoShop or at least enhanced […]
