Edward Reed is a unique artist who delights in the old-school masters of pin-up like Vargas, Elvgren and Petty, yet he has a fascination for photo-realism that borders on the surreal. He has the practised ease of an expert when it comes to real-world airbrushing, yet has no difficulty bringing that talent to a computer screen. Whether analogue or digital, the finished illustration is what's important, and Reed brings outstanding style and beauty to all his creations. His women are classic in form yet modern in sensibility - just the right mix for a 21st Century pin-up artist! This first collection of this works - "Portraits & Pin-Ups", is well named, as it showcases both his serious and fun sides to an appreciative audience. Also an in-demand instructor, Edward has assembled a fascinating step-by-step to show how he creates such intricate and amazing masterworks.
