The California Art League proudly presents the legendary Josef Rubinstein (best known as “Joe Rubenstein”) for an exciting live portraiture demonstration.
Born in Germany in 1958, Joe’s love for the art of drawing comics started very early, as a kid. He eventually met one of his childhood idols Neal Adams and was given the task to be his assistant. He also assisted Dick Giordano and worked alongside other comic greats like Wally Wood, and Jim Starlin before becoming a freelance artist, working for all of the major publishers. Joe became a U.S. Citizen and began working as a comic-book inker.Because of his work as an inker in The Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe, Joe has a Guinness world record of inking more pencilers than any other inker in the business. His stunning work in this book spans a remarkable 20 years.
As an award-winning artist and painter, Joe brings a dramatic use of light and color to his work, along with careful attention to the languages of line and structure.
