Description
Only two things have kept Sandy Plunkett from becoming a household name in the realm of art and illustration: he is very selective (he only draws what he wants to draw) and he works at his own pace (slow). But everything he draws is superb—precisely detailed, vitally expressive, flawlessly composed—so that anyone who has seen his work clamors for more. Fortunately, we have this collection: nearly 400 ink, pencil, and colored pencil drawings from the sketchbooks that Plunkett has kept since 1992, sampling everything from his anthropomorphic Jungleland adventures to meticulous sketches of real-life Athens, Ohio, and Plunkett's own visions for works like Something Wicked This Way Comes and The Fourth Tower of Inverness.

"At long last, the drought is over. All of us, and we are legion, who have for decades impatiently awaited that which we knew must exist—a vast trove of unseen Plunkett brilliance—have finally been amply rewarded."—Mark Schultz

"There's a timeless quality to Sandy Plunkett's work that never fails to give me a little jolt of envy and inspiration. I love his compositions, his rendering and all the emotion that he communicates with vivid facial expressions and carefully considered body language. I even envy his graceful signature. I'm thrilled to finally have a large collection of his drawings together under one cover."—Kevin Nowlan
