FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BALLISTIC PUBLISHING ANNOUNCES —EXPOSÉ 10 has been unleashed
The greatest collection of original digital art ever assembled
Adelaide, South Australia – 24th July 2012
Ballistic Publishing is proud to announce that EXPOSÉ 10 is now available to pre-order from ballisticpublishing.com. For the last decade, Ballistic has released this must-have, Digital Art Annual. The latest instalment of the Finest Digital Art in the Known Universe brings together a record number of inspiring works from not only the giants of the entertainment industry, but also many rising stars.
The tenth EXPOSÉ continues an annual tradition of showcasing the finest, and most inspirational 2D and 3D art in the World. It all started with a small handful of passionate digital art enthusiasts slaving away in a hot shed to produce the first EXPOSÉ title. It was their goal to celebrate the world of computer graphics like never before. Each piece of art was hand picked and reproduced so that it would maintain its vibrancy from the screen to the page. A decade and 42 books later, the shed is now bigger, and thankfully air conditioned, but the passion keeps getting stronger.
EXPOSÉ 10 is the largest EXPOSÉ to date with 288 pages, and features a record-smashing 548 images by 380 artists. EXPOSÉ 10 draws artists from every continent on Earth (except Antarctica), making it the most diverse collection of styles and cultural influences, and a true reflection of the worldwide digital art community. Ballistic has also, for the first time, included a commemorative Honor Roll that lists all of the artists that have been featured in all EXPOSÉ books from one through to ten. EXPOSÉ 10 - there is nothing else quite like it.
EXPOSÉ 10 showcases the world’s best digital art in 20 categories, including: Comic/Manga; Portrait (Painted & Rendered); Fantasy; Fantasy Femmes; Architecture (Exterior & Interior); Concept Art; Environment; Matte Painting; Science Fiction; Robotic/Cyborg; Warriors & Conflict; Whimsical; Surreal; and Transport. Across all these categories, Ballistic Publishing is uncompromising in its pursuit of quality, and each image that appears in EXPOSÉ 10 is individually color-corrected to maintain a standard of output that no other art publisher can match.
EXPOSÉ 10 entries were judged into Master and Excellence classes by a judging panel of renowned artists including: Syd Mead (‘Blade Runner’, ‘Tron’, ‘Aliens’, and ‘2010’), Chris Perna (Epic Games Art Director), Stephan Martiniere (concept artist from id Software), Chris Sloan (award-winning Art Director from National Geographic), and Alex Morris (architectural visualization guru).
