THE BERNIE WRIGHTSON ARTBOOK: A TRIBUTE
I was ecstatic yesterday to finally receive my comp copy to the Bernie Wrightson Artwork: A Tribute HC Book by Steve Niles & Shannon Eric Denton at Printed in Blood and Monster Forge Productions. At 244 pages it’s a beast of a love letter with written and rendered tributes from over 200 creators to everyone’s favorite Master of the Macabre and gem of a human being! It was produced via a Kickstarter at Wrightsontribute.com or printedinblood.com and can be bought for $45. I was fortunate that my remembrances and an Inking commission I did in blueline over Bernie’s loose sketch for client Sean Marsh back in 2017 (I was working on an assignment at the time and couldn’t do a new piece) made the cut from the several files I sent on for consideration.
There’s also a lot of unpublished and rarely, if ever, seen Bernie art, especially from the private art collection of Allen Milgrom. I poured through the tome but I haven’t had a chance to read it cover to cover yet due to my current work schedule and obligations but can’t wait to do so. In the meantime I’ll proudly display it on my bookshelf. Buy it! You won’t be sorry!
