Has there ever been a better synthesis of artist and subject than the great Bill Sienkiewicz and H.G. Wells' classic THE ISLAND OF DOCTOR MOREAU?
Check out these exclusive paintings from the book, which will be released later this year by Beehive Books!
About the Project
Beehive Books funded the project through an ambitious, successful Kickstarter Campaign. Their concept was simple:
We're partnering with three of the very finest artists working today: Paul Pope, Yuko Shimizu, and Bill Sienkiewicz. We've asked each of the three what book they would most love to illustrate, and they've each come up with a fascinating choice.
The story of the whole project is available on their Kickstarter page.
About the Island of Dr. Moreau
Here what Beehive Books had to say about working with Sienkiewicz:
Before Bill even began work on his jaw-dropping illustrations, we knew this one would be a masterpiece. Wells' gleefully blasphemous tale of human chimeras and deranged scientific curiosity comes to nightmarish life through Billy the Sink's supreme brushwork and unmatched vision.
Bill, for the few who aren't aware, is a living legend -- the man who almost single-handedly brought fine art techniques into mainstream comics, drew many of the most acclaimed comics and graphic novels of the last 40 years, who collaborated with Alan Moore, Neil Gaiman and Frank Miller on some of their most ambitious works.
Bill is simply one of the best visual storytellers of all time, and it's an honor to have this opportunity to work with him.
Pre-orders are now available for THE ISLAND OF DR. MOREAU illustrated by Bill Sienkiewicz.
