My new book, "Tex: The Art of Mark Texeira--The Artist's Great Escape" is hitting stores even as we speak. Although the book is published by Vanguard Productions, I am the author and also the designer of the book. Here's a little more about it:


Think of “Ghost Rider,” "Wolverine," "Punisher," "Pscythe," “Moonknight,” “Black Panther,” “Conan,” “Vampirella,” and you think of Mark Texeira and his body of amazing work!

A massive 128 pages, the color art book from Vanguard Productions showcases all this and more, with a study of Texeira's classical painting techniques applied to his old world portraiture work, as well as showing how his talent is coupled with modern sequential art to great effect.

In fact, "Tex: The Art of Mark Texeira--The Artist's Great Escape," is a lush retrospective of the Mark's whole career--from his beginnings in the hard streets of NYC to his rise in the competitive world of commercial illustration. Written by Renee Witterstaetter, with additional research by Patricia Snodgrass, the new book is available in softcover, hardcover and deluxe slipcased hardcover--the later with an additional 16 page portfolio section.

This is the third in a series for writer Renee Witterstaetter when it comes to art books. Her "Excess: The Art of Michael Golden," sold out in hardcover last year and is now only available in softcover, preceded by "The Fantastic Art," all published by David Spurlock of Vanguard Producitons.
