Mythology – The DC Comics Art of Alex Ross is a huge ( 11.8 x 8.8 x 0.9 inches, 320 pages ) and lavish volume housing an impressive collection of the artist’s best illustration work. The book documents the evolution of his changing style, right from his childhood sketches to the super realistic renderings we’ve come to love, and offers a rare glimpse of Alex Ross’s creative process.
(above) Alex Ross shares with the reader some of his influences, including Norman Rockwell and Andrew Loomis. ( below left )
(above) Ross pays tribute to Mad Magazine for one of their covers, and also painted a tie-in comic for the Justice League animated series. (below) Uncle Sam is one of his first foray outside the Superhero genre/realm.
(above and below) The many pencil sketches spread throughout the book is a great chance to study the artist’s amazing draftsmanship.
Highly recommended. Fans of Alex Ross’s comics/artwork should definitely consider picking this up.
