The Art of Joe DeVito

From Joe DeVito's Bio:
Joe DeVito was born on March 16, 1957 in New York City. His family later moved to New Jersey where he grew up in the town of Berkeley Heights. It was while in the city, though, that his life-long love of dinosaurs and fantastic creatures began, with his first viewing of King Kong.


(DeVito, Joe. War of the Worlds.)

A frequent visitor to the Museum of Natural History as a boy, his infatuation with all animals has never left him. He graduated with honors from Parsons School of Design in 1981, studied at the Art Students League in New York City and has taken several workshops in human and animal anatomy with John Zahourek.

(DeVito, Joe. Software Too Large.)

He has also contributed widely to the fields of advertising, magazines and comics in the form of covers, posters and trading cards, painting such characters as Batman, Spiderman, Superman, and Wonder Woman for DC Comics and Fleer; several covers for MAD Magazine.

Over the last twenty four years Joe has illustrated hundreds of book covers specializing in science fiction, fantasy, adventure, horror and dinosaurs. His love of learning and his strong artistic inclinations have led to a long career as an illustrator and sculptor. (http://www.jdevito.com/)


(DeVito, Joe. Wonder Woman c. 1995.)

I used to read Wonder Woman comics when I was little and I still love the Wonder Woman comic book character.

I've collected a lot of comic book art in the past and I always love the attention to detail that's added.

I love the energy that this puts out, it really catches the essence of a woman, who could, in fact conquer the world. It also inspires me and makes me want to go out and conquer the world!
