Red Sonja by Joe Jusko

Joe Jusko...the guy has talent boy...out of all the current Fantasy artists out there...he is the guy carrying the torch. He calls these finished drawings con-sketches. He goes around the world from NY to Paris and points in between visiting with fans and doing drawings for the fans.
There is an enormous body of work behind the man as he started as an assistant to the Legendary Howard Chaykin then moved on to doing covers for Heavy Metal and on to CONAN and beyond....just visit JoeJuskoart.com and you'll see what I mean. From Vampirella to Tomb Raider to Paperback book covers to "The Hawks of outreemer" to an upcoming surprise revolving around a certain Jungle Lord. Joe's work has shined and spread across the industry like wildfire. He's not only carrying the torch andf following in the footsteps of greats like Frazetta and John Buscema but...he's created his own legacy for people to follow after him.
His technique is brilliant and he works at the speed of light. How can one artist produce so much work and deliver such beautiful paintings in the time he does? Ans: It's all talent baby...straight up talent. He put in the time and energy to be the Master he is...Rock on Joe...keep us thrilled and in suspense. Thank you for allowing me share your Sonja convention piece from your visit to Paris
