Joe Jusko (b. sep. 1, 1959 (60 years ago) in New York) is an American artist known for his realistic, highly detailed painted fantasy, pin-up, and cover illustrations, mainly in the comic book industry. Jusko painted the 1992 (27 years ago) Marvel (19 pics) Masterpieces trading cards, the popularity of which has been credited with initiating the painted trading card boom of the 1990 (29 years ago).

Education and early career

Growing up in New York, Jusko attended the High School of Art and Design, where his instructors included Bernard Krigstein. He graduated in 1977 (42 years ago) with the DC Comics Award of Excellence in Cartooning. Upon graduation, Jusko worked as an assistant for five months for Howard Chaykin, which led to Jusko selling his first cover for Heavy Metal magazine at the age of 18. Forgoing college, Jusko went straight into the commercial illustration world.

Comics

Over his career, Jusko has worked for almost every major comic book publisher, producing hundreds of images (wallpaper) for both covers and interiors. In addition to his long stint as one of the main cover artists for The Savage Sword of Conan, Jusko has painted every major character that Marvel (19 pics) Comics has created, most notably the Hulk and the Punisher.

Jusko has also produced covers and interior art for many other comics companies and characters, including DC Comics, Crusade Comics, Innovation Comics, Harris Comics, Wildstorm Comics, Top Cow Productions, and Byron Preiss Visual Publications.

Trading cards

Besides the 1992 (27 years ago) Marvel (19 pics) Masterpieces trading card set, Jusko painted the 1995 (24 years ago) Art of Edgar Rice Burroughs trading cards. His work is featured in the 1996 (23 years ago) card set Fleer's Ultra X-Men Wolverine Cards, as well as Conan the Barbarian and Vampirella (3 pics) trading card sets.

Jusko has also produced storyboards for ad agencies, for such notable clients as the World Wrestling Federation.

Jusko is currently working on The Art of Joe Jusko (Desperado Publishing), as well as a graphic novel adaptation of Steve Niles's supernatural detective Cal MacDonald.

New York City police officer

At one point in his career, Jusko became "disillusioned with the lack of work... and became a [New York City] police officer. After several years I realized art was my main passion and went back to it full time. Luckily, the second time was a charm and my career took off." After the sep. 11, 2001 (18 years ago), terrorist attacks, Jusko created the Police and Firefighter Heroes of sep. 11 lithograph, all proceeds of which went to the New York City Police and Fire Department Widows' and Orphans' Fund.
