About this title

Synopsis:

Fans will warmly welcome this very first book devoted to the art of seven-time Chesley Award nominee Richard Hescox. These 100 pieces are Hescox’s favorites, and they showcase the inventive and imaginative worlds he has created on paper for more than 30 years. His vividly realistic images, produced with gifted draftsmanship and augmented by a brilliant use of color and composition, have made him one of the most widely sought-after genre illustrators. The versatile pieces shown here include book covers for such authors as Marion Zimmer Bradley and Roger Zelazny, as well as work for the motion picture and computer game industries. Every painting reveals anew why Hescox has become one of the most beloved and respected artists in the field.
