    Hannes Bok - "The Black Powers" Preliminary Drawing Original Art (1944). Hannes Bok planned out the design for his "The Black Powers" lithograph in this finely detailed, same-sized graphite pencil drawing. Seething with the raw power and unfettered skill of a master artist in the throes of creation, this is a unique look inside the artistic process of this legendary fantasist. The image area of the drawing measures 10" x 14". Aside from a few very small spots in the lower right corner, the art is in Excellent condition. From the collection of Richard and Wendy Pini. Richard says: "I remember my first exposure to the work of Hannes Bok -- a strange mix of gnomish creatures and tall elegant large-eyed ladies. I knew very little about the artist but the style stuck with me; it reminded me of some of the early drawings that Wendy had done for a story called "The Rock Garden" and thus it was appealing. Over time I came to realize that Bok was to fantasy art what Chesley Bonestell was to astronomical art -- a giant in the field. These pieces came to me in an art trade, and I was very happy to have them."
