Henry Patrick Raleigh


Henry Patrick Raleigh was one of the most prolific artists of the early nineteenth century. His work defined the jazz age and the roaring twenties. The new book is chock full of full color illustrations mostly taken from the original paintings and rarely seen photographs.

"Henry Raleigh, possibly one of America’s most stylish storytellers in pen and watercolor, was a master of scene, design, and making women and their men look elegant and lithe. He defined the ideal smart set life, and gritty social settings with the equal ease, and lived his life at full throttle and martini shaker when illustrators defined the visual culture within the slick magazines. What an inspiring draftsman and storyteller, a real illustration treasure he was."
CHARLES S. PYLE, director, School of Illustration, Academy of Art University

The Art of Nestor Redondo


Nestor Redondo was Philippine's foremost comic book illustrator since the early nineteen fifties. His love to draw started early on from his childhood and never wavered for as long as he could use his cheap Chinese brush.
He believed very strongly that there isn't a bad pen or brush for a good artist.
And he proved this time and time again.
He drew only what the story required and left space for the reader's imagination to take flight. He was really more of an illustrator than a cartoonist. His lines seemed to flow easily and were always pleasant to look at.
The hero was always handsome, the heroine was always beautiful and there was no doubt how the dastardly looked. It was noted one time that he had more fans than any other artist in the country.

As talented as he was with drawing for the comic books he was just as adept with other media, like watercolor and oil paintings, He was the most emulated artist and the most admired and respected by his peers. There won't be the likes of him again.
