Anything painted directly, on the spot, always has a strength, a power, a lively touch that is lost in the studio. Your first impression is the right one. Stick to it and refuse to budge.
- Eugene Boudin
Nothing makes me so happy as to observe nature and to paint what I see.
- Henri Rousseau

Flesk Publications

Posted by Charley Parker at 12:24 am

Franklin Booth
Flesk is a small publishing house that has issued wonderful collections of work from two of the best pen and ink illustrators in history: Joseph Clement Coll and Franklin Booth. Both are extraordinary in their own way.

The site contains small galleries of both artists’ work. The work is reproduced at a smaller size than you might like, but consider it a taste. If you like pen and ink drawing but are not familiar with these two artists, you owe it to yourself to check them out.

Flesk is also publishing collections from contemporary comics artists Mark Schultz and Steve Rude.

Check both the Galleries and the Publications sections for reproductions of the art.

    Yeah. I picked up the first JC Coll book. Saw some of his drawings in a pen and ink show. The guy is amazing.
