- Full Description
Mark Schultz once again shows growth in his exploration of technique, subject matter and story elements. Schultz says he’s still working to refine his craft, and each new work is the result of an intense dedication to capturing his visions in new ways. In this new collection of the artist’s works; the Xenozoic world takes center stage with preliminary drawings and concept designs from his upcoming Xenozoic graphic novel, placed in context with an introductory text that addresses his decisions behind the new art. Plus other works, as well as two spectacular panoramic fold-outs, one with color on both sides. Several nudes.
Plenty of poster-style images featuring Jack and Hannah are included as well. Carbon 3 also features images from Schultz’s Storms at Sea and his depictions of myth and pulp adventure. The inclusion of preliminary drawings along with the finished results gives insight into the choices the artist makes in realizing of his initial idea. Beyond his stunning use of brush, ink and graphite, there are examples of Schultz’s continuing development as a painter working in watercolor and gouache.
Mark has been working with John Fleskes at Flesk Publications since 2005 to bring you the finest collections of his art. Their combined efforts have resulted in 12 books, including Mark's art book collections Various Drawings (volumes 1-5) and Carbon (volumes 1-2). More recently Mark completed Storms at Sea, an illustrated novella, also published by Flesk. Perhaps most significantly, he created the speculative comics series Xenozoic Tales, to which he has now returned. He has illustrated a collection of Robert E. Howard’s Conan of Cimmeria and provides the scripts for the comics strip Prince Valiant.
Carbon 3 represents two years of challenges and development in Mark Schultz’s work, as he continues to strive toward a goal of better realizing and communicating his vision of human engagement with a largely unknown and always exciting universe.
In 2003, Mark worked with us to create a fine illustrated bookplate to accompany is The Coming of Conan and he signed each one with a special flourish. Since we still have some of these, we are including them free with each copy of Carbon. The bookplate is printed on heavy parchment-color index stock, measuring 5" x 8 1/2".
