In this month’s earlier blog post, Painting Into Books: The Creation of Readable Art, there are dynamic visual samples of Iason Ragnar Bellerophon’s method of painting directly onto the pages of books. That technique did not begin with the painted books of the Talos Saga. Years before undertaking that epic project, Iason was drawing onto the pages of his personal copies of Philip José Farmer’s adult pulp classic A Feast Unknown. Character sketches, scene depictions…they are hints of the visionary magnum opus that was to come, and are mesmerizing in their own right. Farmer’s pastiches of Doc Savage and Tarzan, Caliban and Grandrith, literally burst off the pages.
Enjoy this unique look into the intense, visceral world of A Feast unknown.
