- Full Description
Bernie Wrightson’s extensive design work for the Gang of Seven Animation Studio has never before been documented and if you are like we are, this is going to be entirely new material to you. And what fine, fine work it is. This in-depth monograph utilizes the archives of the studio and features concept drawings, model sheets, and hundreds of designs for projects including Biker Mice From Mars, The Juice, and Freak Show. All of the artwork in this book has been scanned directly from the original artwork so fans can savor Wrightson’s genius up close and personal.
It offers highly detailed pencil drawings of everything from monsters and werewolves to demented doctors and character sheets...plus many are accompanied by the full color, finished pieces that would have appeared in the films. Holy smoke, this is pure Wrightson and he's at his best here. I have never before seen any of this amazing work.
Includes a Retrospective on Bernie's career by publisher Daniel Herman, with 12 pages of works reproduced from original artwork from his early fan pieces to his Frankenstein. It is followed by an interview between Herman and Tom Tataranowicz, Producer/Director of Gang of Seven Animation, another ten pages with photos, that was conducted solely for this book.
Bernie Wrightson, comic book artist and illustrator extraordinaire has worked creating comic books, illustration, and conceptual design for film. His impressive list of work includes the co-creation of Swamp Thing, illustrating Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, and, of course, working on dozens of comic book titles.
Also included in this monograph are an introductory essay, an in-depth interview, and photographs taken during his tenure as an associate partner of the studio.
This is already out of print from the publisher. We tried to order up on it to keep it in stock for a little while, but we're currently not sure if we will get all the copies we asked for. Act accordingly. I dearly hope they will see fit to either do a new printing or do this in softcover...its a book every Wrightson fan should have.
