Overview

Flesk Prime serves as a fresh look into the imagery of five exceptional artists: Craig Elliott, Gary Gianni, Petar Meseldzija, Mark Schultz and William Stout. The essence of each craftsman is captured here to satisfy their fans as well as individuals who are enjoying their first glimpse. The section on each artist begins with an introduction and a biography written by Flesk publisher John Fleskes. The five were invited to handpick their pieces for inclusion, to showcase the best representation of their works. Furthermore, new quotes have been obtained to capture the artists' own thoughts. Each chapter shows the dynamic range of styles and illustrations and the unique diversity of these five creators. Almost all of the artwork has been reproduced direct from the originals.

Elliott's section contains an assortment of fine art, much of it centered on the female form. Also featured are editorial assignments and an enlightening look into the process behind one of his most recent paintings.

Gianni is represented by oil paintings, a pencil sketch, finished pen-and-ink drawings, comic book pages, a Sunday newspaper strip and book illustrations that span the last twenty years.

Meseldzija has provided a stunning array of graphite drawings and oil paintings completed within the last year, including private commissions and book illustrations. Giants, dragons, warriors and maidens are features of this fantastic voyage into his storytelling mind. Oil details show the brush strokes up close, for a view of his deftness.

Schultz offers previously unseen drawings from his personal blue-line sketchbook, plus pencil drawings and a pair of finished brush-and-ink comic book covers from his award-winning Xenozoic series. Heroic adventures, barbarians and fantasy-themed experimentations round out his section.

Stout shares many new and rare pieces. Oil paintings of a monster, zombie, prehistoric and dinosaur subjects are included. In addition, colored pen-and-ink drawings of record album and comic book covers are here.

Within the pages of Flesk Prime you will enjoy a dynamic range of colors, an exceptional quality of line, a bravura application of paint strokes on canvas, and a subtle balance of ink on paper--all represented through the masterful approach of these five highly trained and creative artists.
