- Full Description
With a cover painting by Annie Stegg Gerard, Infected by Art contains one of the most diverse groups of artists ever selected by their jury. 274 artists are represented with works ranging from traditionally painted to digital, illustrations in pencil, pen and ink or gold leaf, to sculpted works. This is a more character-driven selection than Spectrum, with a strong emphasis on the figure, nudes, fantasy characters and horror. Bookplate laid in with ten signatures by the jury and editors.
The jury was comprised of artists Vanessa Lemen, Colin and Kristine Poole, Rob Rey, and Beautiful Bizarre EIC Danijela Krha Purssey.
Yoann Lossel's image The Rise won IBA 6's grand prize, and artists Forest Rogers, Olivier Villoingt, Candice Broersma, and Patrick Jones received other grand prize awards. Yoann Lossel also received the Body of Work award which is an honor bestowed by his peers and we're treated to four more pages of his work.
Foreword by Bill Cox, profiles of all jury members with their own artwork, Grand Prize Winners, then sections on Traditional Painting, Digital Painting, Drawing, and Sculpture. Index with contact information for all artists featured.
Back cover by Candice Broersma.
As you've come to expect, this edition features most of the 330 artworks on a full page to present the artwork in its best light. This edition also features the four commissioned works from IX Arts that will be on display at IX 11 this Fall.
From traditional artists like Sanjulien to top flight modern creators like Patrick Jones, this covers the full range of superb fantasy illustration. This has been really catching on in the past two or three years, with strong sales matched only by the grandaddy of annuals, Spectrum.
