 The Art of Simon Bisley Redux Book Review

About the Book: Back by popular demand and expanded!!

Forty more pages than the previous edition. The book is now a gorgeous over sized softcover edition.

"This is art to drool over. Art to keep forever. Savour it on bleak, sunless days and watch the colour explode. Admire it in mid-summer, and send a chill shiver through the rest of the year"

From the forward by Alan Grant

Our Take: Simon Bisley is one of my favorite artists, hands down.  Thats not just in the fantasy/comic book realm, but he's one of my favorites period.  His artwork is dark, gritty and sensual.  He really manages to manipulate not only lights and darks, but color and texture to create such dynamic characters that his work is instantly recognizable.

This collection of the Biz's artwork gives us some great full-color paintings, along with sequential comic art and even rarely seen pencil sketches!    The work here covers everything from the infamous Bodycount graphic novel through video game concepts and his work on secular comics like Judge Dredd and Lobo.  Its full of imagery and a little bit of fun fact.

I don't mean to drool over this title like a fanboy, but lets face it....I am.   You've gotta own the Biz, otherwise you're art collection is just lacking!  I recommend this book to anyone that is interested in fantasy or comic book art!
