In a word: an ESSENTIAL book!
Be warned: diving into this book (and therefore, into Karl’s mind) is a dangerous journey! It is full of warriors, goblins, dragons, vikings, pirates, swashbucklers, soldiers, Indians, cowboys, samurais, thugs, bikers, super-heroes, astronauts, plus a few zombies. 🙂
As publishers and as illustrations enthusiasts, we LOVE Karl’s work. And his raw sketches are among some of the most interesting works we have seen. They radiate power and energy. Most of them have been made for the sheer pleasure of drawing, straight from their creator’s mind onto paper, and in that respect, they are the consummate collection of an artist delighting in his own unfettered creativity.
