As two of the biggest names in fantasy art for 30 years, the popularity of Boris Vallejo and Julie Bell remains undimmed. In 2005, Collins Design published Boris Vallejo and Julie Bell: The Ultimate Collection, a retrospective of their glittering career, gathering together their finest art from three decades in one acclaimed volume.

This mesmerizing new book, named after Boris and Julie's website, features a brand new and unseen collection of ravishing maidens, heroic mean, and fearsome monsters—their first collection of new work since 1994's Sketchbook.

A mix of commissions for magazine publishers, advertising agencies, film production companies, and more, this enhancing compendium is yet another must-have for all Boris and Julie fans.

5.0 von 5 Sternen BORIS & JULIE...STILL THE KING AND QUEEN OF FANTASY ART 10. November 2007
Von Tim Janson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Imaginistix is the name that Boris Vallejo and his wife, Julie Bell, have given to their website, designed to deliver the best of their combined abilities to their fans. Boris has been one of the top stars of fantasy art for nearly forty years, frequently collaborating with his wife who also served as his model for many paintings. Imaginistix is also the name of their brand new collection of fantasy art, just released by Harper Collins. With the team both being former bodybuilders, it comes as no surprise that they have truly mastered the human form an anatomy, perhaps better than any other artist. What strikes me about Boris' work is that he's never been one to exaggerate the physical definition of his subjects. Comic artists have long given us forms that were impossibly built...biceps which go far beyond what can be humanly achieved, women with breasts which ought to cause them to tip over should they lean too far one way or another...Boris has never had to exaggerate his subjects because he's mastered the natural look. His men are muscled and defined...but not impossibly muscled...his women are curved appropriately with both muscles, and yet a natural feminine softness to their physiques.

The work in Imaginistix is a mix of commissions done for magazine publishers, advertising agencies, film productions companies, calendar work, and more. Each page features a full-page piece of art with a few two-page spreads thrown in for good measure. Solo work by both artists is featured along with numerous collaborative efforts. Amazingly, in this high-tech era where so many artists are using Photoshop or Corel Painter, Boris and Julie still work the old fashioned way...in pencil and ink and in oils on canvas. Digital art has come along way in the past twenty years but nothing beats a well-done oil painting.

I think the biggest difference that you see between Boris and Julie's work is that Boris goes for a bit of a more dynamic approach with lighting and tonal effects. His work tends to shimmer somewhat more than Julie who takes a softer, often romantic, more earthy approach to her pieces, although, may I point out, they are not any less beautiful. In fact one of my favorite pieces in the entire book is one of Julie's called "The Gift". Thus painting shows two creatures of myth and whimsy as a centaur presents a bright red rose to a mermaid who is blissfully sunning herself on a seaside rock. Boris has his own masterful painting featuring a hero of myth as Hercules stands poised to hurl a fearsome creature (perhaps the Erymanthian Boar) off a mountainside. And again, we have a powerful, yet naturally muscled figure.

Many may not be aware of their work in advertising but this is a chance to see them working outside of their usual fantasy and sci-fi themes, and working more in the real world. Examples including paintings of sports figures like LeBron James uses for different campaigns. A highlight of the advertising section is a painting they did together for Carlsberg beer depicting a game of soccer between teams of rabbits and magpies.

Vallejo first came to prominence in part due to his many outstanding book and magazine covers from publications such as The Savage Sword of Conan and the Edgar Rice Burroughs Barsoom adventures. Today, Julie is continuing this tradition with covers to many modern gothic horror novels and her painting "Shades of Vampire" is another of my favorites. Not to be outdone in the vampire theme, Boris provides "Angel Man" a painting featuring the vampire, Spike, from Buffy the Vampire Slayer and the photo realism of the piece is incredible considering it wasn't done digitally.
This latest collection proves that Boris Vallejo and Julie Bell are still at the top of their game.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Best Collection of Boris Vallejo and Julie Bell Artworks 13. November 2007
Von HARRISON CHUA - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I believe the Imaginistix book is one of Boris Vallejo and Julie Bell's best collection of artworks. If you are considering buying the art books of Boris Vallejo and Julie Bell -- whom I consider to be the best fantasy artists in the world -- I recommend buying this one and the "Boris Vallejo and Julie Bell: The Ultimate Guide". This book features uncluttered full-page images of their artwork. It contains personal accounts of their early career which I believe is a must-read for every person who admires their work and those who have yet to discover their greatness. Boris Vallejo's accounts of his early career as a commercial illustrator and his migration to America is a fantastic read, as it delves into his journey into how he became one of the best artists in the world. Julie Bell's love for painting all creatures great and small is evident in the paintings, and her talent for painting portraits is second to none. I definitely recommend buying this book.

I bought the book as inspiration for my nephew who is going into designing characters for video games. It's exactly what I wanted him to check out. Lots of scantily clad vixens with great muscle tone and fantastic creatures to stir the imagination.

I had purchased the 2007 calendar and loved the artwork. This got my curiosity going as to how they started doing this type of artwork - which is fabulous. So I ordered their book to find out their story. Facinating read and just awesome artwork!
5.0 von 5 Sternen King and Queen of fantasy art 10. Januar 2008
Von wiredweird - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This collection proves, as if it needed proving, that Vallejo and Bell consistently provide the finest fantasy art around, both individually and as a team. Samples in this collection include book covers, where many readers will first have seen their work ("Oh, that's who did that cool cover!"). It also includes samples of their calendar art, advertising commissions, and other works that accumulated as they chased their muse.

I know there are negative attitudes about "mere" commercial art, and even reticence to call it art. If you define art (or Art) as whatever doesn't get wide recognition, then we'll disagree. I have no qualms about the morality of keeping beans on the table, and I'd like to think that at least some advertisers have realized the value of appealing to our visual intelligence. Although the purpose of each commission is clear, B&J bring their full range of skills to bear on every piece they deliver. Their wit, composition, and craftmanship meet the same standard in every work, whether for sneakers or pure inspiration.

I could go on at length about how great their work is, and almost did. Instead, I invite you to see these wonderful works for yourself. The majority of the book presents their oil paintings, with a few pages of commentary at the start of each section. In among those, you'll find preliminary sketches, book covers as the publisher finally showed them, and comic book pages. There are also a few atypical works, SF themes with no living being in sight - even though B&J are best known for their mastery of the human animal (among others), they do a great job with the hardware and landscape, too. Suspending disbelief isn't the problem in viewing these works. Instead, the problem might lie in getting past the belief in each painting's inner logic. It's not normally in my orbit, but I'll be looking for the tarot deck hinted at in this work - it might even motivate me to figure out what all those arcana are about.
