Collecting over sixty of the most recent artworks by Mark Schultz, acclaimed creator of Xenozoic.
In this entirely new collection of the Mark Schultz’s works, most of which have not been previously published, the Xenozoic world takes center stage. Schultz presents preliminary drawings and concept designs from his upcoming Xenozoic graphic novel, placed in context with an introductory text.
Plenty of poster-style images featuring his famed characters Jack and Hannah are included as well. Carbon 3 also features images from Schultz’s Storms at Sea and his depictions of myth and pulp adventure.
The inclusion of preliminary drawings along with the finished results provides insight into the decisions the artist makes in the process of moving toward the realization of his initial idea. Beyond his stunning use of brush, ink and graphite, there are examples of Schultz’s continuing development as a painter working in water colour and gouache.
Carbon 3 represents two years of challenges and development in Schultz’s work, as he continues to strive to better realise and communicate his vision of human engagement with a largely unknown and always exciting universe. The works found inside this volume are all important markers along his road toward that goal.
