Tim Bradstreet’s new art book Archetype
I remember picking up Tim Bradstreet’s Maximum Black 10 years ago back when I lived in Montreal. It was at a cool little book store called Nebula. I poured through that monograph so many times it wasn’t funny. I was just starting to experiment with realism and photo-realism with my own artwork. There was some powerful imagery in there.
A few years later I screwed up the courage to email Tim and ask him a couple of specific questions regarding his burnishing technique. Two days later I received a very detailed and helpful answer in my inbox. I wasn’t accustomed to artists being so helpful and forthcoming. He had me as a life-long fan then and there.
And earlier this year he provided us with a back cover blurb for our first release, Rex by Danijel Zezelj. We are both great admirers of Danijel’s work.
Finally a second monster volume, Archetype, chronicling his artwork is being released by Joe Pruett over at “Desperado Publishing”. It’s coming out in a standard hardcover edition as well as a special signed volume.
Tim says, “Archetype is a retrospective and covers my entire 22 year career working in RPGs, VGs, comics, trading cards, album covers, and movie posters. Almost everything is represented. Plus – Unpublished and personal art, sketches, thumbnails, and photos.
With quotes and insights from Guillermo del Toro, Mark Schultz, Mike Carey, Bernie Wrightson, Steve Niles, Thomas Jane, Gary Gianni, Paul Gulacy, Bruce Jones, Tim Truman, Lee Bermejo, Phil Hale, and Danijel Zezelj.”
Consider it pre-ordered.
