Opus 2 by Barry Windsor Smith

Barry Windsor Smith
Opus 2, 1999 - Like the previous volume, Opus 2 contains some of Barry Windsor Smith's finest paintings, drawings and sketches over the course of a long career. The artist shares more about his history and philosophy, leaving a tad less room for artwork than before. Regardless, the body of work shown is magnificent in its scope and execution. Smith shares a few insights with his early comic book work, notably his "Red Nails" saga in the magazine-formatted Savage Tales. For me, some of the most fascinating parts of the book are the rough sketches, revealing the artist's thought processes and approach.
