"A book "MH HEINTZ: Black & White" by NeoPopRealism PRESS invites you to explore the world of artist MH HEINTZ. It presents a collection of the drawings that communicates at a powerful emotional level. Often, Michael H. HEINTZ’s thought-provoking work (traditional art) does not conceal darker strains of humor, interpreting the gross and depressing things in life. This book offers the drawings created in 2005-2012. Some of the artist’s work promotes the animal rights awareness; other explores the world of politics and the modern society in general. In the artist MH Heintz drawings, you will recognize such people and personalities as Kissinger and George W. Bush, Nancy Reagan, Dalai Lama and Pop Benedict XVI, George Carlin and Samuel L. Jackson, Rosie O'Donnell and Donald Trump, others. The topics covered in his pieces are serious; the artist illuminates truth and challenges the viewer to feel and connect to a common humanity". ~NeoPopRealism Journal

"Michael Heintz wields quite the pencil. His Soapbox Gallery collection of single panel cartoons wobbles nicely between political commentary and some kind of twisted National Geographic special. Both are worth a look." ~Bob Stevenson, The HB Comic-Blog

About the Author:

MH HEINTZ: Black & White - NeoPopRealism JournalMichael H. Heintz was born in Libby, Montana and raised in southern Idaho. Son to an English teacher and freelance painter, he began at a young age to experiment with pencil art. An avid movie and music buff, Heintz set about storyboarding his own 3D "Rock & Roll Fantasy" at age 21 and has since made it his life's work, later making it the subject of a documentary in film school ("Grand Folly: The Road to SJD") where he picked up an AAS in Digital Film Arts from Tucson's Pima College in 2007.
It was in college that he came up with "Shoebox Gallery" as a respite from storyboarding. The antithesis of cute puppy art, the one-panel comic was named for the box children bury their pets in. His aim was to promote animal rights in a more subversive way and without all the Hallmark sentimentality. "Soapbox Gallery" followed with an emphasis on politics and society, but featured animals whenever possible. The twin graphic-art 'comics' have been featured extensively online (WebComicsNation, Coroflot, Imagekind, AbsoluteArts, Artstudio54, Clovenhand, and more) and have been published in two Anthologies from Cyberwit.net (Taj Mahal Review, Vol 6 #1, June 2007 and Harvests of New Millennium, Vol. 5 #1, Jan 2012).
As a freelancer, Michael has done work as a storyboard artist ("Sex, Drugs & Money" by Richard Rose, 2006), a comic-book penciller ("Night Warrior" online comic), portrait artist, and more.
A collection presented in this book offers 81 drawings, produced by Michael H. Heintz in 2005-2012.
