Frank Stockton Gives Us the Last Unicorn in Comic Covers and the Star Wars Cast at the Movies [Art]
There’s a reason that Frank Stockton receives illustration commissions from folks like Entertainment Weekly, the New Yorker, Esquire, Mondo, IDW and Fantagraphics. He has a reverent sense of other people’s properties, a luminous sense of color and an ability to construct scenes that are crowded but never overly busy.
Stockton drew the covers for IDW’s comic adaptation of Peter S. Beagle’s The Last Unicorn, as well as covers for Angel and a Serenity one-shot. His gorgeous Star Wars pieces have graced Mondo posters and the Star Wars Galaxy 5 card set. But it’s his editorial artwork that shows off his range, both in style and composition, from the narrative graphite sketches of Stone Age people created for Scientific American to the uncomfortable A Clockwork Orange closeup for EW.
