Spectrum Fantastic Art Live 1--Event Book


This Spectrum Fantastic Art Live 1 commemorative hardcover art book explores the work of the five special guests at the inaugural 2012 event. Each is a master in contemporary fantastic art. This lavish edition illuminates the art of:

Android Jones, cutting-edge creator, live-stage digital painter at music and art festivals around the world and co-founder of Massive Black. He has created concept art for industry powerhouses such as Nintendo and Industrial Light & Magic.
Brom, an artist whose distinctive vision has been applied to novels, games, comics and film. He's created a series of award-winning horror novels that he both writes and illustrates, titled The Child Thief, The Plucker and The Devil's Rose.
Iain McCaig, world-renowned illustrator, director, storyboard artist, concept artist and character designer. His best-known designs are of the iconic Star Wars characters Darth Maul and Padme Amidala.
Phil Hale, prolific in both the commercial and fine-arts fields, he boasts clients ranging from Microsoft to Playboy. His fine art has been exhibited in galleries across Europe as well as on the walls of Westminster Abbey.
Mike Mignola--writer, artist, designer and concept artist--is the creator of Hellboy, B.P.R.D. and the Amazing Screw-On Head. He is perhaps one of the most respected figures in contemporary comics.

Individually, these artists are peerless in vision and style. Collectively, they represent a rich cross-section of the best in contemporary art. The breathtaking imagery included here was personally chosen by the artists. Introductions to each gallery are by industry greats Christopher Golden, Lorne Lanning, Christopher Paolini and William Stout, plus a short interview with Phil Hale by Tray Batey. This fine-art companion to the inaugural "Spectrum Fantastic Art Live" convergence is a lush, unique study of an incomparable collection of artists. Limited to 2000 copies.

Spectrum Fantastic Art Live

Like its published inspiration, "Spectrum Fantastic Art Live" is a melting pot of artistic talent. The show is a natural extension of the eighteen-year success of the award-winning Spectrum art annual. As an international melting pot of talent, Spectrum: The Best In Contemporary Fantastic Art has come to symbolize the vibrancy, diversity, and overall excellence of the creative community. The popularity of the books has steadily increased over the years, and Spectrum exhibits at the Museum of American Illustration located within the Society of Illustrators in New York City in 2005 and 2009 shattered attendance records, leaving artists and the public clamoring for more. Spectrum Fantastic Art Live! is an answer to that call.

"Spectrum is about embracing diversity," explain Cathy and Arnie Fenner, directors of Spectrum Fantastic Art. " 'Spectrum Fantastic Art Live!' will open the doors to everyone, with the distinctly positive goal of increasing the awareness, appreciation and opportunities of and for artists of all sensibilities."

Spectrum: The Best in Contemporary Fantastic Art

Eclectic and masterfully compiled, the award-winning Spectrum series has become an industry standard for showcasing the work of established and emergent talents alike. The anthology serves not only the artists represented within its pages but also creators at large, as an ever-current reference to the constantly evolving landscape of contemporary fantastic art.

Spectrum: The Best in Contemporary Fantastic Art, "Spectrum Fantastic Art Live!," and this fine-art commemorative edition hardcover are the latest result of Spectrum's ongoing mission to illuminate and celebrate the genre.
