Flesk Publications is pleased to announce Naughty and Nice: The Good Girl Art of Bruce Timm with an introduction by Jim Steranko.
In a radical departure from his previous work on animated films and comics featuring superheroes, the award-winning artist Bruce Timm presents an extensive survey of the many forms that his muse has assumed in his mind’s eye. Naughty and Nice: The Good Girl Art of Bruce Timm showcases over 325 full-color, line and pencil images of partially clothed and nude women of almost every conceivable description and temperament.
This substantial collection provides shapely forms and earthly delights throughout its pages. Be it a sophisticated city gal or a savage jungle queen, a hard-boiled dame or an elegant lady from the land of fantasy, a quietly smoldering sorceress or a wild-hearted adventuress, Timm's ladies are sure to please the eye.
Over 125 new images have been prepared especially for this handsome book. Timm explores the female form with absolute creative freedom, and pure personal expression is the result. The artist has granted Flesk Publications unprecedented access to his archives to provide the best representation of his private works. These rarely seen images span the last 15 years and are showcased in a single collection for the first time.
This 9 x 12 inch 304 page book will be available in two formats: A paperback edition with a cover price of $50.00 (978-1-933865-40-9) and a hardback deluxe signed edition in slipcase limited to 1000 copies with a cover price of $100.00 (ISBN: 978-1-933865-41-6).
“I am thrilled to be able to work directly with Bruce Timm to collect his personal unpublished art into a singular collection,” shares the publisher, John Fleskes. “These works emanate an air of beauty masterfully shaped by line and color by the artist, writer, director and producer who has redefined animation over the last 20 years.”
Flesk Publications has made an exclusive arrangement with Diamond Comic Distributors for the hardbound deluxe edition. The only way this special signed edition can be purchased is direct through Diamond’s Previews or from the Flesk Publications online store.
