Art of Joseph Michael Linsner SC (2003) comic books 2002-2004
1st printing. By Joseph Michael Linsner. Few names in the art world today stir the passions of fans like that of Joseph Michael Linsner. A maverick phenomenon, Linsner has been painting visions of fantastic worlds and beautiful women since 1989. He stormed the world with his personal tribute to the Goddess, Dawn. Collected here for the first time is the body of work that Joseph himself is proudest of. This much-anticipated volume boasts 176 pages of Linsner's very best work, including covers and over a dozen previously unseen and unpublished paintings. Scores of rare production sketches and color roughs will be highlighted, as well as a special "how to" section in which Linsner gives a sneak peek at the production of one of his dazzling Dawn paintings from start to finish. More than simply pinup art, Linsner's work illuminates a complex mythology, rife with its own symbolism and language. Ever wanted to go to Heaven, Hell and beyond? Linsner's art will take you there. Softcover, 9-in. x 11 1/2-in., 176 pages, full color. Cover price $24.95.
