Product Number: 9781684055197


Writer: Andrewsteven Damsits

Artist: Roy G. Krenkel

Publisher: IDW Entertainment

Roy G. Krenkel illustrated numerous works by Edgar Rice Burroughs, Robert E. Howard, Lin Carter, and more. But many of Krenkles workswhat he calls his Doodles, in a characteristically self-effacing mannerwere rarely seen by even his biggest fans. And while many of Roys doodles were simple drawings, many were finished illustrations done for the pure pleasure of creating art. Most of the images in this book are published here for the very first time (courtesy of and with the full cooperation of the Krenkel Estate), and nearly all have been painstakingly scanned from the original art (in a manner akin to IDWs Eisner Award-winning Artists Edition series) with the goal being to showcase Krenkels gorgeous original art in a way it has never been seen before. While the realms of science fiction, heroic fantasy, paleontology, and historical reconstruction were particular specialties of Roys, his pen, brush, and palette knew no boundaries.
