They have written, designed, and edited a series of titles devoted to the works of Frank Frazetta, Jeffrey Jones, Jon Foster, Robert E. McGinnis, John Jude Palencar, Dave Stevens, and many others that have been published by Underwood Books. In addition, Arnie serves as a Senior Art Director for Andrews McMeel Publishing.

Spectrum is a an art annual that sends out invitations to artists for their work to be featured in the book. Only a selected few, the best, have their work chosen.

In Volume 15, the judges are Justin Sweet, Daren Bader, Frank Cho, Tim Bodendistel and Kelly Seda.

The list of winners are on[..]and the full list of artists here.

As for the art, they are gorgeous. The variety is incredible and are created with different mediums. They are grouped into different categories, namely Advertising, Book, Comics, Concept Art, Dimensional (sculptures and models), Editorial, Institional and Unpublished.

Since these are published yearly, the illustrations featured are all recent. I'm an art book collector and I find myself going,"Oh, oh, I hope he/she's going to release an art book!" while going through the pages.

There are actually 264 pages instead of the 248 pages listed on Amazon. Nice.

This is perhaps the best valued art annual around.

This series gets better every year. My favorite artists always appear in each issue, and new artists make the cut, too. As an artist myself interested in fantasy art I find this annual absolutely essential. The color quality of the entries is top notch. SPECTRUM is always inspiring! It makes me work harder!

A very important tool to get to know what the artists produce and what are the demands of the actual art directors. I guess some artists can get a general impact through that annual publication. For me is a very nice way to have a complete overview of this sort of art that really enriches this special corner of my life. I have them all (all fifteen) and they are worth the price. I reread (re-view) them all from time to time. You always find something new!
