After a one-year hiatus, I am very excited to announce that Mark Schultz’s Various Drawings series will return this summer 2009. Randy Dahlk has just finished designing the cover to Mark Schultz: Various Drawings Volume Four. I absolutely love what Mark and Randy produced and wanted to share it right away.
Highlighting this compilation is Schultz’s new Pulpette personal works. These four plates combine Mark’s love for pulp magazine imagery combined with classic pin-up style art. Development sketches showcase his stages of production.
Also included are preliminary pieces and a self-rejected sample for his upcoming illustrated novella, Storms at Sea as well as new Xenozoic Tales specialty drawings. Additional illustrations include recent commissions, spotlighted by an evocative Helen of Troy nude. Completing this volume is a Martian fantasy gatefold, sketchbook experimentations, and Schultz’s contribution to Prince Valiant.
We plan on releasing the book at Comic-Con International in San Diego at the end of July.
