Summary

"That man can draw magic and make you believe," author Patricia Briggs says of Jean Pierre Targete.Illuminaexplores the work of this talented Miami-based artist, who has established himself as one of the most versatile new stars in the fantasy/sf firmament. Building on his skill at rendering a subject in almost microscopic detail, Targete grounds images of the impossible in the mundane details of the real world: the texture of a granite boulder, the liquid sheen of a serpent's eye, the weight of a drawn sword. At the same time, he uses his understanding of the emotive value of light and abstraction to create covers that do more than represent a novel; they tell the story.Illuminafollows Targete's early development as an artist and presents more than 100 of his most important paintings, including the Chesley Award-winning The Circle at Center and his paintings for the newThieves WorldandPlanet of the Apesseries. In addition, he discusses the techniques he uses to capture the essence of a story in paint.
