everyone and his (or her) brother came out with an art portfolio.
There was a lot of cool stuff, from Neal Adams' "Tarzan" Portfolios to Wrightson's "Frankenstein"....and from Jeff Jones' "As a Child" to Frazetta's "Fire and Ice"
Anyone else have any favorites?
I also liked Marshall Rogers "Strange" portfolio,
Corben's "Scenes From a Magic Planet"
and Nestor Redondo's "Men Maiden and Myths" was kind of neat too.
But the one I'd have to say is a favorite, is actually more recent -the Micheal Golden portfolio of his Jurassic Park covers that he did for the Tops books. That's just eye popping stuff. I love that portfolio.
BTW, never saw the Corben Magic Planet portfolio -have those plates appeared in his Art Books -or elsewhere?
Wrightson's Frankenstein (all three original, plus the one that came out in the mid-80's with the large print)
Frazetta's Middle Earth/Hobbit/LOTR
Cycle of the werewolf porfolio (1983) The months illos are amazing!
Edgar Allan Poe (1976)
The Stand Black cover (1991)
The Wrightson "Apparations" portfolio is a favorite of mine too...I love the Hanover Fiste plate.
It's funny, Redondo's portfolio and Alcala's "Voltar" both had a similar, Booth inspired style, to Wrightson's Frankenstein...and while they weren't as successful as Wrightson, they did come through with some cool stuff here and there, though I think Redondo was the better of the two.
I was just going through my portfolios after starting this thread and found the loose plates for the "Abyss" portfolio. The Wrightson plate in that was very nice...and printed at a huge, almost poster, size.
I was thinking about putting my portfolios on Librarything...but they're not books, so I'm not sure.
I guess there aren't any real rules,...though I haven't put up any magazines or comic books. I've been trying to stick to bound things or things with isbn numbers.
Does anyone have an opinion about including portfolios?
If I can find it I'll post the issue number. It was cool, there were a lot of full page images of plates from different portfolios and while it was just on good quality newsprint, it was still nice because the magazine was so large a lot of the plates were almost printed at full size.
Why not? Both of us put in our Bill Stout convention sketch collections, and they're just bound xeroxes...are they really books?
Real libraries including such listings in their catalogs.
There's no stigma : )
Now it'll just be laziness that gets in my way of manually adding them (or the eight million other things I should be doing instead)
repeat as needed!!!!! It is super fast and super easy to enter a large number of consecutive or same issue runs of comic books.....
