Tonight I’ll be speaking at an event co-sponsored by the San Diego Natural History Museum and Comic Con International (Comic Con is in the midst of designing a comic art museum in Balboa Park. I am one of a small handful of people who have attended every single Comic Con). My illustrated lecture will take place at the Natural History Museum at 7:00 PM. There will be signed posters for the attendees.
This is all in celebration of today’s official release of Fantastic Worlds – The Art of William Stout. This huge book has over 300 pages and over 500 images. Author Ed Leimbacher is flying down from Seattle and will be on hand to sign the books with me, which will be for sale at the museum’s shop. This will probably be our only joint signing.
The book (published by Insight Editions) covers my fifty-year career as a professional artist. Each chapter covers a different aspect of my kaleidoscopic career; i.e., Dinosaurs, Antarctica, Comics, Film Design, Theme Park Design, Music-related art, Fantasy Illustrations, etc.
Here is the where and when:
