The Art and Illustration of Joe DeVito
We had a terrifically informative and entertaining evening on March 28, 2011, with award-winning painter, sculptor, illustrator Joe DeVito. Illustrators from Nazareth to Delaware County came to see the original paintings, sculptures and sketches Joe brought and hear him explain his career’s journey from neophyte Parsons grad to Spectrum award-winner and creator of King Kong’s most recent and lush incarnation, in art and in story. Joe shared tales of his family, his time as a romance novel cover artist (painting Fabio & Corbin Bernsen), led a pictorial tour through his unique studio and walked us through his entire sketch-to-painting process. A genuinely nice guy, inspirational teacher & wonderful storyteller, in pictures and in words.
