This comprehensive 352-page retrospective covers almost every aspect of Mike's career, from his earliest days of working with Leatherneck" magazine, while he was still in the Marines, right up through his latest work on Goliath. The Art of Ploog contains, quite literally, hundreds of pieces of art from throughout his career, as well as commentary by the master himself.
You'll find all his best known works in this book. Included is the work he did for Marvel comics (on titles such as Frankenstein, Ghost Rider, Planet of the Apes, and Werewolf By Night), as well as a wide range of his film work on animated features (such as Lord of the Rings, Shrek, and Wizards) and live-action features (including Little Shop of Horrors, The Thing, and X-Men).
The book also contains many of his most popular paintings including those created for his own fantasy art trading card series, as well as paintings he worked on for the collectible card games Guardians and Magic the Gathering, most of which have never been reproduced larger than trading card size. It's the ultimate collection spanning his entire career.
This is the book for all our fellow Ploogies out there. We hope you'll join us for the most comprehensive work ever produced on the magical worlds of Mike Ploog as well as commentary by the master himself.Authors:
