Beginning with his masterful pen and ink cartooning at EC Comics, he quickly forged a reputation as one of the most versatile artists in comics, drawing humour, horror and war stories. Jack Davis: Drawing American Pop Culture is a gigantic, career-spanning retrospective, between whose hard covers resides the greatest collection - in terms of both quantity and quality - of Jack Davis' work ever assembled.

Description du livre Fantagraphics, United States, 2011. Hardback. État : New. 332 x 258 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Beginning with his masterful pen and ink cartooning at EC Comics, he quickly forged a reputation as one of the most versatile artists in comics, drawing humor, horror, and war stories. In Harvey kurtzman sMAD, especially, Davis made a mark as a master of caricature, composition, and wild, anarchic crowd scenes, practically vibrating with energy. After stints atMAD, Trump, and Humbug -- three humor magazines that defined the satirical zeitgeist of the 50s -- Davis went on to become the most successful commercial illustrator of his generation, illustrating movie posters, magazine articles, magazine fiction, LP jackets, and more. Jack Davis: Drawing American Pop Culture is a gigantic, unparalleled career-spanning retrospective, between whose hard covers resides the greatest collection -- in terms of both quantity and quality -- of Jack Davis work ever assembled! It includes work from every stage of his long and varied career, such as: excerpts of satirical drawings from his college humor zine, The Bull Sheet; examples of his comics work from EC, MAD, Humbug, Trump, and obscure work he did for other companies in the 1950s such as Dell; movie posters including It s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World, The Bad News Bears, Woody Allen s Bananas, The Party, and others; LP jacket art for such musicians and bands as Hans Conreid and the Creature Orchestra s Monster Rally, Spike Jones and Ben Cooler; cartoons and illustrations from Playboy, Sports Illustrated, Time, TV Guide, Esquire, and many others; unpublished illustrations and drawings Davis did as self-promotional pieces, proposed comic strips that never sold (such as his Civil War epic Beaureagard ), finished drawings for unrealized magazine projects -- and even illustrations unearthed in the Davis archives that the artist himself can t identify! Much of the material will be scanned directly from original art, showing the painterly brush strokes and black and white pen work with far greater fidelity than any previous reproduction ever has. Many paintings and illustrations are accompanied by preliminary drawings that demonstrate the evolution of Davis drawing process. N° de réf. du libraire BZV9781606994474
