Best of EC Rolled Into One

That last post reminded me how much I really like the work of William Stout. He's like the EC artist that was born too late, or something like that. He's like Frazetta and Williamson and Krenkel and the best of EC rolled into one, yet he's master of his own style.

Of course his museum art stuff is really great and all, but if only he would work in the land of comix more often. The more I study his work, the more astounded I am at the flawlessness of it.

Love the arrested motion and other-worldly color in these two

always a treat to see any work by Stout! i recently picked up his book "The Dinosaurs" with all those wonderful Nouveau styled illustrations, what i call his Mucha-saurus'!
