"The Artist Within" by Greg Preston

From Print.

Pat Oliphant

Photographer Greg Preston is a good-natured, low-key guy. There’s an ease about him that enhances his subjects’ comfort amidst their already-familiar surroundings.

It’s visible enough in The Artist Within, a handsome, generously-sized hardcover from 2007 with roughly a hundred “portraits of cartoonists, comic book artists, animators, and others,” as the book’s subtitle has it. 

Steve Brodner

He’s captured a broad spectrum of extraordinary talents, from Al Hirschfeld, Will Eisner, and Jules Feiffer to Jack Davis, Mort Walker, Gahan Wilson, and from Jack Kirby, Neal Adams, and Frank Miller to Crumb, Moscoso and Spiegelman.

The lush details and rich tones and textures of his full-bleed monochromes reward repeat visits.
