The Big Kopinski, Artbook by Karl Kopinski

The Dude is back… with a vengeance!

…and he doesn’t smoke anymore, drinks very moderately and doesn’t bowl much. But he draws… and HOW !

As comfortable with pencils and brushes as with a graphic tablet, he paints with a mastery that leaves one speechless. Counting among his customers such prestigious names as Wizards of the Coast, Ubisoft, Games Workshop, CMON and Hasbro, he never satisfies himself with mercenary work and at the slightest opportunity, he draws obsessively. Diving headfirst into his sketchbook without so much as a safety net, he brightens its pages with incredible sketches… to our greatest delight!



Bigger, Heavier, Better

Today, we are very pleased to announce that after several months of editing, the first BIG KOPINSKI sketchbook is ready to hit the shelves.  What we’re talking about now is 296 pages full of sketches; black and white (mostly) and colors.  Some were published several years ago by Karl himself  in the first two volumes of his soft-cover, self-edited “Sketchbooks” (see pictures on the left) but these unfortunately have been sold out for a long time, which really is a pity.

So, to our greatest pleasure, Karl entrusted us with the project of reprinting the content of his two first books, all cleaned up, along with many brand new illustrations, and wonderfully wrapped up as a beautiful hard-cover coffee-table book.

For those of you who are familiar with our production, it is the same size and make as the Kim Jung Gi or Jesper Esjing books.



In a word: an ESSENTIAL book!

Be warned: diving into this book (and therefore, into Karl’s mind) is a dangerous journey! It is full of warriors, goblins, dragons, vikings, pirates, swashbucklers, soldiers, Indians, cowboys, samurais, thugs, bikers, super-heroes, astronauts, plus a few zombies. 🙂

As publishers and as illustrations enthusiasts, we LOVE Karl’s work. And his raw sketches are among some of the most interesting works we have seen.  They radiate power and energy. Most of them have been made for the sheer pleasure of drawing, straight from their creator’s mind onto paper, and in that respect, they are the consummate collection of an artist delighting in his own unfettered creativity.
