Joe DeVito


Biography Over the past thirty years Joe DeVito has illustrated, sculpted and designed hundreds of book and magazine covers, posters, trading cards, collectibles, toys and just about everything else in a variety of genres. He is especially known for classic depictions in both painting and sculpture of many of Pop Culture's most recognizable icons. These include King Kong, Tarzan, and super heroes such as Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Spiderman, and MAD magazine's Alfred E. Newman (a super hero to some). He sculpted the award trophy for the highly influential art annual SPECTRUM and his poster painting has become their logo. An avid writer, Joe has written many essays and articles. He has also coauthored (with Brad Strickland) and illustrated two novels. The first is KONG: King of Skull Island (DH Press, 2004). The second book, Merian C. Cooper's KING KONG, was published by St. Martin's Griffin, in 2005. His present endeavors include participating in the full development of KONG: King of Skull Island, the sculpting of the official centennial anniversary statue of Tarzan for the Edgar Rice Burroughs Estate, covers for the all new Wild Adventures of Doc Savage written by Will Murray. He is also finishing the screenplay and developing imagery for his newest creation, a faction world of truly epic proportions tentatively titled The Primordials.
