Dark Shepherd: The Art of Fred Gambino
One of the things we love about animation artists is the way their creativity can bend between genres, subjects and styles while maintaining their own particular twist. That’s why it’s such a treat to pore over a collection from a veteran’s career. A 30-year illustration and concept art creator, Fred Gambino’s designs can be seen in animated films like The Ant Bully and Jimmy Neutron, Boy Genius, in video games and on the covers of sci-fi books.
Titan’s up-to-date assemblage collects exclusive concept art and excerpts from Gambino’s multimedia sci-fi project Dark Shepherd, as well as an inspiring selection of some of his most brilliant work. Otherworldly landscapes, engaging character portraits and atmospheric compositions make up the inspiring world of Gambino’s imagination spilled out on the page for the first time in over 10 years.
