285 glorious illustrations celebrate the scratchboard art of Scott McKowen. "McKowen is a scratchboard master, creating theatre posters and book covers of fantastic clarity, shrewd wit and subtle mystery. McKowen's mastery of line and texture, gift for arresting juxtapositions and perspectives, and fluency in drawing the human figure make for complex and breathtaking images that are at once old-fashioned and cutting edge. And he writes as crisply as he draws... In McKowen's work, art meets literature, and both thrive." -Booklist on "A Fine Line" "It's hard to decide what's cooler about Scott McKowen's poster art: the astonishing, elegant design and linework, or the way he tips your preconceptions on their head and does something unexpected with every assignment. Luckily, we do not have to make a choice. It's all here." -Neil Gaiman. Today's scratchboard artists use sharp instruments to etch lines into a board support layered with white chalk, silver foil and black ink to expose the white and grey surfaces underneath. Colour, if used, is then added to make a spectacular work reminiscent of traditional woodcutting but as rich and dynamic as any full colour painting. Because it is a reductive process - you cannot fix mistakes - it is considered one of the most difficult artistic techniques. In Light Revealed, scratchboard master artist McKowen builds on his 2009 retrospective, A Fine Line, with a personal selection of 285 new works. He gives a detailed analysis of each piece and describes what influenced his design. He includes images of the reference works he consulted during the conceptual process and talks about the struggles he had arriving at a design solution. He also discusses the influence and advantages of technological developments, such as Photoshop, which have carried the medium into the 21st century.
