Description

Every age has its artistic inspiration. Medieval artists exalted spiritual subjects. Modernists shifted their attention to humanity and the senses. For a generation of artists and fans today, our heroic subjects are Mario, Pikachu, Spider-Man, Darth Vader, Frodo and a legion of other iconic figures from the "geek" culture realms of movies, cartoons, video games and comics. For the first time, Geek-Art collects the work of nearly 100 international illustrators, graphic designers, photographers and artists whose inspired interpretations of these beloved characters celebrate them with creative brilliance and a true fan's passion. Featuring more than 750 images, this lavish illustrated anthology showcases the inspired energy that drives pop culture and makes geeky fans of us all.
