Mar 1, 2015I found Jolly Jack's work on Deviant while browsing one day. I am now a huge fan. His artwork is fantastic. I am a 'behind-the-scenes' type of guy and love to see works in progress. This book is a fine example of this. Filled with sketches as the title suggests, you get a glimpse of how the process works. It's a huge book, and the quality is great. I am really picky over paper/printing quality, but no issues with this one. really well done. Buy it. Just buy it. You'll love it. It's worth all those pennies.
Aug 21, 2010I have just recently become a fan of this great artist through his "Sequential Art" strip & having all but devoured all 600+ strips in two days, decided to purchase this MASSIVE tome. Not long after my 2nd or 3rd flip-through, I decided to tag all my favorate pics with little Post-it page markers. when done I realized that practically EVERY OTHER PAGE was tagged, said "Screw it." & removed them. Long story short: I was VERY happy with this book. Artwork ranges from sexy to silly to REALLY sexy (with a few badass thrown in for good measure) all with Jolly Jack's distinct style. And yes, I too was mildly disappointed that some of the hand-written text wasn't legible - but not enough to affect my rating. All in all, if you enjoy good artwork & don't mind if some of said artwork is NSRW, you can't go wrong with this impressive tome.
Jun 5, 2010Following SA for a while and while some of the art is recognizable when it was posted on the collectedcurios.com site, most of the art was new to me. After picking up two Little Victory issues and then seeing the sketch tome, it fun to see how much Philip's art style has progressed since he began. Unfortunately (yeh, broken record time) more than a few punch lines on some of the pictures are hand written and while the detail in the inked pages are solid and sharp, the penciled dialogue is lost almost completely. It's quick fix if Tome #2 comes out: Illustrator or Photoshop those dialogue stuff in! Overall, the book is great, aside from those dialogue problems. And, if anyone is expecting a clean family book a word of warning, some of it is cute and some of it is very not. ;)
Mar 18, 2010Does contain some problems with text quality, but "the problem places" can be count with one hand. Great tome of great works from the Master himself. Great and inspirational buy.
Mar 7, 2010Firstly, excellent service from Lulu.com - within 5 days of me placing the order, it was on my desk, which was certainly a welcome surprise. The book itself is monolithic, with a forward from PMJ himself, and from there on out it is solid art. It easily provides hours of viewing, with Jackson's sardonic, satirical approach to his own art and to his surroundings emanating from each piece. Ngall001 summed up the contents, there is a vast range of work, in both traditional and digital media, with a variety of anonymous characters, as well as the ever present cast of Sequential Art, and of course the eye-poppingly proportioned Ms. Sinclair. All of the images are printed at the finest quality, with the reproduction of the traditional scans clean and defined. So, conclusively, if you are after a means by which to judge the artists approach, skill and implementation, this book is the place to start, and for what you get, £20.00 is certainly brilliant value.
