Dinosaurs in Sci-fi and fantasy art – part III

Dinosaurs, prehistoric beasts, cavemen and cavewomen are the subjects for my new series of art posts. There will also be an occasional giant monster.
This post includes work from Joe Jusko, Jamie Chase, and Bernie Wrightson
————————————————–
Joe Jusko
Joe sold his first cover art piece to Heavy Metal Magazine at age 18. He went on to illustrate covers and inside work for most major comic book companies, including Marvel and DC. He’s also known for his Edgar Rice Burroughs, Conan the Barbarian, and Vampirella trading cards. you can check out his work at:  http://www.joejusko.com

Jamie Chase
Jamie is an American Artist living in New Mexico known for his abstract work that has been featured in many galleries and exhibitions. He recently turned his creative talents to dinosaurs, illustrating graphic adaptations of The Land That Time Forgot and At The Earth’s Core by Dark Horse Books. The adaptations feature Jamie’s art and story adaptation by Bobby Nash. The books are unique in the aspect that the illustrations are presented in fine art style rather than comic book art style.

Bernie Wrightson
Bernie (or early work seen as Berni) co-created The Swamp Thing, worked for DC, Marvel, National Lampoon and Warren. His work for Heavy Metal Magazine led to his character, Captain Sternn being animated for the Heavy Metal Movie. He illustrated the Comic Book adaptation for Stephen King’s Creepshow and illustrated King’s book, Cycle of the Werewolf. More of his work can be seen at: http://www.berniewrightson.com
 Naturally all of these artists do more than dinosaur and giant monster art. I hope you will seek out their work and check out their websites, books, publications, and prints.

  1. Great Post!
    A huge admirer of Berni Wrightson’s work.
    Was working on a Post to celebrate his birthday last October but it never came out
    Honestly, w an artist of his calibre, how much of his work can u include?
    What – perish th thot – cld u leave out?
    Dinosaurs have always been a hit w me in any format!
    Cheers!

    • It didn’t seem like he did a lot of dinosaur work, I only knew of the Creepy Magazine cover. But when I researched I found all of these goodies. There are a whole bunch of sketches he did for The Mist which is really cool, I didn’t know he worked on that film.
