Lets just get it out there: the American artist Joe Jusko is undoubtedly one of the best known Fantasy, Pin-Up and Comic Artists in the world today.
His career has spanned almost 30 years, starting with the sale of his very first cover for Heavy Metal Magazine in 1977 at the age of 17. Since graduating that year from NYC’s High School of Art & Design, Joe has worked for almost every major comic book publisher, producing hundreds of images for both covers and interiors. His work has appeared on paperback book covers, calendars, posters, T-shirts, toy packaging and innumerable trading cards, and most memorably the multi award winning 1992 Marvel Masterpieces Trading Cards.
The popularity of that ‘Joe Jusko set’ initiated the painted trading card boom of the 1990’s, and led to his groundbreaking 1995 Art of Edgar Rice Burroughs trading cards. Those 125 paintings have made him the most prolific Burroughs artist ever, producing art based on almost every major book by the famed author.
Needless to say: you won’t want to miss his visit to FACTS Spring Edition 2017! Joe Jusko will be available on Saturday and Sunday, on the 1st and the 2nd of April, in Flanders Expo, Ghent.
