Trenton Doyle Hancock: Skin and Bones

20 Years of Drawing

Edited by Betsy Stepina Zinn. Introduction by Valerie Cassel Oliver. Foreword by Bill Arning. Text by Valerie Cassel Oliver, Brooke Davis Anderson. Conversations with Gary Panter, Stanley Whitney.

Trenton Doyle Hancock: Skin and BonesBest known for his exuberant paintings centered around semitragic fictional characters called the Mounds, Trenton Boyle Hancock (born 1974) is also a prolific draftsman. The first in-depth examination of his drawings, collages and works on paper, this comprehensive survey brings together works made between 1984 and 2014. Tracing the evolution of Hancock's vision by showing the genesis of his mythology, including that of the epic Mound saga, and his wide range of high and low influences (comics, graphic novels, cartoons, music and film, as well as visual art), this catalogue demonstrates the fundamental, continuing importance of drawing in Hancock's work up to the present day. Also included in this volume is a 32-page comic book.

Trenton Doyle Hancock, "The Doorstop", 2010, is reproduced from Trenton Doyle Hancock: Skin and Bones.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

The New Yorker

The Editors

Ab Ex meets Zap Comics in the wild imagination of Trenton Doyle Hancock. In his boisterous mythologies, villanious vegans do battle with good-guy, meat-eating mutants, and Torpedo Boy–a superhero that Hancock, now forty, first drew in the fourth grade–swoops in to save the day.
