Allan Linder 20th Century and Beyond Art Book is Back in Print

 


What makes an artist great? Struggle, determination, failure, or is it just raw talent? This question has been asked for centuries, and every art critic has a different answer. Follow the journey of notable American artist Allan Linder through three decades of artwork, as he honed his skill while overcoming life's obstacles.



Linder is a fourth-generation artist that works with paint on canvas, sculpture in many mediums, and drawing on paper and digital artwork. His work is exhibited and collected worldwide. Linder's work ranges from abstract concepts to his most recent paintings that depict realistic scenes of New York City in various seasons.



The subject matter ranges from moments of peaceful silence in a burgeoning and populated locale to busy street scenes in the heart of Time Square. With more than 150 full-color photographs of his most important work, this book complements any art history collection and is the topic of many conversations.


Allan Linder 20th Century and Beyond is currently available on Amazon.


From the Publisher:


For more than 25 years this important American artist has been quietly painting in his studio. He doesn’t employ 30 people to do his work for him. Instead, he creates his vision with his own hands. This poignant story of one artist’s journey from coast to coast in pursuit of his goal is refreshing and sets an example for other artists to follow. This book follows his creativity through various styles and influences. With more than 150 photographs of the artist and his work, this book will be a welcome addition to any art collection. If you are fortunate enough to own a Linder original, then you must have this to go with it.

Pencil Drawing to Digital NFT


If it's one thing I enjoy it's seeing the process shots of blue pencil conceptual art. There is something about the basic nature of it that appeals to me. Many times I take a step back just to get a good look at something I'm working on to make sure I'm on the right track.

From this point I scan the original artwork at 8k resolution and begin work in either Photoshop or Procreate on the iPad. I convert the main image to black and white and start clean up. Then I begin blocking in colors and eventually move on to details.


This is Mordrake, king of the Razor moths. He wields his tyrannical power over the inhabitants of the Gora forest. There is much to say about this notorious king, but that must wait for another time.

I really enjoyed working on this character. He's kind of a dark wizard of sort's. We'll have to wait and see what he is capable of and who can stop him. 

If you want more of my art process, you can check me out on TikTok here.



Here's the final image of his Mordrake's magical ways.

RITUALS, 


"The lips of wisdom are closed, except to the ears of Understanding." ~ The Kybalion, 

The secret doctrines of old world teachings come to life in this fantastical series of digital art and animation. For thousands of years the mental nature of the universe has been a mystery. Now we may peer behind the curtain to see what is there.

With light comes dark, always equal and opposite but on the same sliding scale. If the pendulum swings right, it must also swing left. Only very few find balance in the middle.

Each piece features an original music score for every unique, thirty second animation.

All works are for sale digitally as collectible NFTS. Links to the sale of each artwork are under the image.
