This stunning book has over 60 art works of fantastic famous people--unlike you have ever seen them!

 

A few comments from Pross’ admirers:  

 

“Victor's stuff has goddamn edge to it. It has lots and lots of elements. It has wonderful color. It pushes the boundaries.”—Richard Engle, musician.   

 

“Here you have a pencil and paintbrush virtuoso player!”---Pablo Morales de los, artist and caricaturist.

 

“The work of Victor Pross goes beyond the realm of caricature and explores German expressionism at its finest. A true Fine Artist!”—Don David, artist. 

 

 “Victor is an iconic artist and will be worldly renowned and historically respected for his works.” ---John Elliott, artist. 

 

 “The mind behind this man's work leaves me even more breathless than his flawless, boundary-pushing artistic endeavors.”---Crista Bones, photographer and artist.  

 

“Victor’s caricatures, aside from being clever in their own right, also convey an intelligence and knowledge of his subjects that is sometimes absent in similar sketches.” –George H. Smith, author of Athesim: The case against God.
