Über den Autor:
Illustrator, comics creator, film designer, pin-up artist, and painter, Dave Stevens had both the respect and admiration of fans and his fellow professionals alike. The list of people and projects on his resume reads like any creative's wish-list come true: he worked with Steven Spielberg on Raiders of the Lost Ark, George Lucas on Star Wars, John Landis and Michael Jackson on the Thriller video, Doug Wildey on a variety of animation projects; with Chuck Norris, Mel Gibson, and, of course, 1950s icon Bettie Page. In 1991 Stevens' wildly popular comicbook, The Rocketeer, was turned into a Disney film starring Billy Campbell, Jennifer Connelley, and Alan Arkin: though it garnared lukewarm boxoffice receipts at the time, the movie has become a beloved and influential cult classic (see the blockbuster Iron Man for an example). Credited as the person primarily responsible for revitalizing the public's interest in 1950s icon Bettie Page, he not only befriended the reclusive model, but saw to it that she profited from the publishers using her likeness.
Before his untimely death in 2008 from leukemia, Stevens had been working closely with Spectrum's Arnie and Cathy Fenner on his definitive career retrospective. Featuring art, comics covers, photos, and Stevens' own commentary spanning 35 years--including many previously unpublished drawings and paintings-- Brush With Passion also boasts essays by William Stout, Jim Steranko, Michael Kaluta, Richard Hescox, Todd Schorr, and a host of others. More than an art book, more than a biography, Underwood Books is proud to be the publisher of this landmark collection, both a celebration of and a tribute to a remarkable talent.
