From the publisher:
This fifth volume of Various Drawings showcases a generous selection of private art and commissions, along with a smattering of previously published pieces, all created by Mark Schultz over the past two years. A wealth of sketches, preliminaries, studies and finished art, this new installment will appeal to longtime fans of Mark's work, as well as those discerning souls who seek only the best examples of modern imaginative illustration to add to their personal collections.
Despite being an acknowledged modern master of pencil and brush and ink, Schultz has never stopped expanding his visual vocabulary, never shied away from experimenting, never slowed in his relentless pursuit of graphic Nirvana. Nor has he forgotten his first loves and obsessions: pulp and noir-fueled dames, otherworldly SF and fantasy pinups, slavering dinosaurs and fearsome women, gleaming spaceships and alluring cosmic femmes.
Schultz brings all of them--even entire worlds--to pulsing life with his pencil or brush, the slightest nimbus of tint, a revelatory breath of dry brushstroke upon the page. Herein reside Hannah Dundee of the Xenozoic age, the bravos featured in the forthcoming Storms at Sea, a glorious 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea centerfold, and stranger vistas still.
Over fifty illustrations are featured in this volume--the majority not publicly shown until now.
The hardbound edition is limited to 800 copies. Exclusive to this edition is a bound in plate reproducing an unpublished illustration. Each copy is numbered and signed.
