The first thing you can count on in any collection from Mark Schultz is a kind of subject matter, featuring outré situations involving daring men and women, and, often, fearsome beasts. The second thing you can count on is his allegiance to certain graphic mediumgenerally brush and ink, and graphite and charcoal, but sometimes watercolor too. The third thing you can count on is that, although the subject matter and media stay consistent, his design, draftsmanship and control of his presentation are always evolving and growing, Here, in Carbon 2, his work has become noticeably boldermore viscerally engaging.
Carbon 2 follows its predecessor by three years, and in those years Mark’s work has become something more solid, and at times almost sculptural, as he continues to refine his attempts to put to paper the visions he sees in his head. Featuring conceptual studies as well as finishes, Carbon 2 gives us a look into that process.
Of course there are plenty of lovely warrior women, including more in the Pulpette series, as well as portraits of his Xenozoic characters, Hannah Dundee and Jack Tenrec, negotiating dire straits. There is also sword and sorcery, ancient mythic tableaus, and otherworldly science fiction to satisfy the most diverse tastes. And there are preliminaries and rejected pieces from Storms at Sea, and, (spoiler alert) design work and character studies from Mark’s new in-progress Xenozoic graphic novel. Qua hoon!
The large-format Carbon 2 will feature over 50 of Mark’s newest works across its pages.
