- Full Description
This is the culmination of Infected by Art's first-ever competition held at the beginning of 2013. $10,000 in prize money was awarded to many well deserving artists. Creators from around the globe submitted their best sci-fi/fantasy/horror/illustrated artworks and fans voted online for their favorites. At the end of the competition, the jury panel consisting of Basil Gogos, Ken Kelly, Sanjulian, and Arthur Suydam, selected the best pieces to be included in this massive collection.
This volume contains over 300 pages of art, with over 80% of the images filling the full page to best display the artwork! It's a who's who of today's top artists. To begin, each of the jury members is featured in three pages of art and biography.
This is broken down into five art categories. Just more than half the book is the general category which I would call Fantastic Art, with Grand Prize winners including Igor Kieryluk (Poland), Filip Burburan (Croatia), Ciruelo (Spain), Philippe Fernandez (U.S.), and Steven Stahlberg (U.S) one of our favorite Spectrum artists.
Next is Horror, with awards going to Jyri Straechav (Finland), Peter Morhbacher, Stahlberg again.
The Sci-Fi section winners are Ken Barthelmey (Luxembourg), Gary Freeman (U.S.), Oliver Wetter (Germany).
The Illustration category winners are Daren Horley (U.K), Darek Zabrocki (Poland), Huy Thien Nguyen (Vietnam), who we've frequently seen before in international collections.
And finally, Unpublished Art, with winners Peter Mohrbacher again, Trevor Smith (U.S), Milivoj Ceran (Croatia).
