Con un po' di emozione, è arrivato il momento di separarci.
Dopo diversi anni di onorato servizio, questo blog non è più il mio supporto prediletto stupendissimo.
Ho un sito nuovo di zecca.
E' un bel sito, si.
Su questo blog non pubblicherò altro che non siano link al mio nuovo sito.
Presto sarà possibile registrarsi al feed RSS anche lì, esattamente come su blogger. Userò ogni social network esistente per spammare gli aggiornamenti.
Quindi se mi aggiungete su Facebook, Twitter o G+ il gioco è fatto: LRNZ a domicilio in abbonamento perpetuo.
PS: se siete dei blog dipendenti POTETE USARE LA VISTA BLOG ANCHE SUL NUOVO SITO. Basta usare gli switch sotto l'interfaccia!
Ci vediamo su!

After a long and intense use of this blog, it's time to move on.
At last, I have a brand new website.
It too has a blog structure, but it's completely custom, with many many more features, starting with a much bigger space for images and a VERY cool homepage/dashboard.
Moreover if you love blogs nav style you can activate a nifty blog view.
RSS feeds will be active very soon and of course I will spread every single post on all the social networking platforms out there.
So add me on twitter, facebook or G+ and you're done.
See you there!

Cover illustration for the forthcoming LP "Vol.2" by Miriam in Siberia.


SNOB, through suggestion of Marcello Crescenzi commissioned me a cover illustration for a promotional printed set of the "ABC" project, by Regione Lazio.

We started with this blend of nature and art.
So you get this Roman head from Villa Adriana that reflects in the famous emperor's pool. Under the water and the reflection of trees and of the signature coumns of villa Adriana you can see fishes roaming free, and again the head symbolically reflected as Venus and knowledge are in the hermetic tradition that is so strong in roman classic art.
Leaves define the plane separating the underwater world.
Here is the final result:

Unfortunately, we have to agree that the solution lacked people in it, and it's to (young) people that the ABC project needs to arrive.

I started considering these two drafts as a starting point for a new take on the theme.
First one is a rush of people floating around ad sort of ISD made of art related items. Client loved the Festa del CInema di Roma poster I did a while ago and asked a take on the same vibe. While we lost nature we definitely gained people and action.
The second one is all about youth, arts, and nature living together in a beatiful landscape.
Freshest of the set, probably a bit on the edge to become off topic as a result.

So, the first one won in the end and here it is!

Will post the printed set as soon as I manage to get one!

KABOOM! | Fallout 3

Christian G. Marra of Passenger Press asked me to do this 24x17 piece about apocalypse in videogames, more specifically in Fallout 3. Destination: Bizzarro Magazine, Kaboom issue.
And now some extra contents! In between of the work:

My usually dirty draft. I generally lay down the final idea in the first 10 seconds of work.
As you can guess (not see, as it's VERY draft), there's a second guy on the back getting the nuka cola cap. This was my first concept of the work. Showed it to my friend Rrobe and he gave me the brilliant idea to eliminate the second character and let the bad guy interact with the spectator, throwing the cap towards the camera. That was a really smart solution and so I did (it even eliminates the need of a second character to draw, yessss!).

A first separation of the foreground drawing from the backdrop.
Lights are defined, some minor changes on the anatomy still have to occur.

Annnnnd: here is the final piece!
Can't wait to see the printed one.
