Enchanted Realm, Art of Ed Beard Jr.
$17.95 $12.95
by Mark Aronowitz Date Added: Friday 13 October, 2006
Wow!!! This book is long over due. You have got to hand it to Ed. He is persistent. After being given the run around for several years, Ed and his wife said enough is enough, "let's do it ourselves". What they came up with is nothing short or one of the biggest bargains in the art book world. $17.95 for almost 100 pages!! What are they kidding, and over half in color!! This book is easily a $24.99 to $29.99 price point and all done in the good old U. S. of A. No imports from the far east. This ain't just a pretty picture book. It has a how too aspect as well as giving a sense of who Ed is and what forges the talent as well as the man. I have been collecting and selling fantasy art for several years at my store Mark's Comics & Collectibles in New York. I have dealt with Ken Kelly, Larry Elmore, Clyde Caldwell, Brom, R.K. Post, Luis Royo, and too many others to name. I own originals from all of them. Out of all the artists I know and have dealt with, I have only asked one to do a commission for me. You guessed it, Ed Beard Jr. I gaze at both the original painting as well as the original pencil as I type this review, and I am still awed by the them. I am biased, but I feel the painting he did for me, "Valkyries Raid", is the best he has ever done, and that is what you want in a commission. I loved it so much, I recommended to a friend to commission Ed to do one for him as well. His is called "Sword of Solaris", and I know he was overjoyed with it as well. Make sure you contact Ed if you are even thinking of asking about a commission. You will not be disappointed. I have never met anyone else, except for Larry Elmore, who can pick up a pencil or marker and just draw like Ed can. I sat with Ed for hours at a convention once, as well as at my dinning room table, and watched him draw, with no reference material, dragon after dragon, wizard after wizard, and goblin after goblin and no 2 are the same and all were fantastic. Ed is not just an artist, he is a personality. Make sure you find time to go to a convention or a Ren fair he will be at. You will not be disappointed. He is one of the most giving artist's with his time. He will talk to you about anything and everything, not just art. Artist, teacher, husband, father, and friend, "Ed Beard Jr." the true renaissance man.
