Item description for Mark Schultz: Various Drawings Volume Three by Mark Schultz...
This third volume of the ongoing Various Drawings series focuses on Mark Schultz's most recent works and unpublished art. Showcasing only his best in this annual collection, he demonstrates a continued ability to refine his craft through a variety of formats: private commissions, illustrations, comics material, and rare sketchbook art.
New this year is a sixteen-page color section, featuring color roughs for his paintings and tinted experiments. The drawings include new pieces featuring Xenozoic Tales favorites Jack Tenrec and Hannah Dundee, plus a selection of recent comic book covers. Also included are preliminaries for his upcoming Storms at Sea storybook, unpublished brush and ink roughs for book illustration assignments, and more--65 pieces of art rendered variously in pencil, Wolff pencil, and brush and ink.
The Various Drawings series continues to present Schultz's otherwise unseen privately commissioned works, and, as usual, includes a spectacular gatefold centerpiece.

Reviews - What do customers think about Mark Schultz: Various Drawings Volume Three?
In a word: Lush Jun 16, 2008
I've been a devoted fan of Mark Schultz since I first discovered his work years ago. The "Various Drawing" series is a breathtaking collection of unpublished work that reveals the process behind the magic that Mr. Schultz creates with the tools of his trade. From the strong, smart, beautiful women and dashing men to the enticing marriage of cadillacs and dinosaurs, Mr. Schultz' work exudes the kind of passion you long to see in contemporary illustration. I unequivocally recommend any book illustrated by Mark Schultz to comic book fans looking for something off the beaten path and the "Various Drawings" series to illustrators looking for inspiration from a true master. This is the way comics and adventure art should be done. Period.
Truly Amazing Work Nov 11, 2007
I've been aware of the Xenozoic Tales comic for some years, but have never read it; however, I knew its reputation and decided to pick up this volume of artwork by its writer-artist, Mark Schultz. I was, quite literally, blown away - within the pages of this all-too-slim volume, you will find a number of fantastic and fascinating illutrations to delight the eye and imagination.
Schultz employs a style in his illustrations that is reminiscent of Frazetta's pen-and-ink work, and never fails to create a beautiful piece, regardless of his subject matter or the piece's state of progress. Here you will find Conan illustrations, pictures of Xenozoic Tales characters (most notably the character of Hannah, in various situations), and a fantastic fold-out depicting a scene from one of Edgar Rice Burrough's "Mars" novels, among others. You will, quite literally, be amazed by Schultz' virtuoso work. If you enjoy this volume, I highly reocmment both Mark Schultz: Various Drawings: A Collection Of Studies And Finished Works as well as Frank Cho Women: Selected Drawings & Illustrations, which offer illustrations in a similar vein. I hope you'll pick it up - you won't be sorry!
