    small 2008 art collection

    hi people

    it's been a while.
    i'm starting to post a bit more like in the past.
    here's a bunch of things i've been doing lately, in my spare time.
    that second one was strongly inspired by moket's and mister blackfrog's pieces with dualtone textures. i did that first one soon afterwards.
    third piece was for irene gallo at tor (thanks for the nice interview btw ! ).
    the tank image was just a brush test done with mister's cicinimo's brush pack.

    oh, and by the way, my book STRUCTURA is out. on the DSP site for now, and on amazon in the next days according to what i know.

    your ship designs are always beautiful.

    Have you ever tried to redesign a ship by John Berkey? I think your style would fit great with a redesign of his.

    OH JOY!!!

    I'll be on the lookout for your book on amazon. Your art is a tall pint of liquid inspiration.

    EDIT: The book is up for pre-order, 128 pages for $16, that's a steal.

    Fantastic work as always, the tank image is great,

    I love the atmosphere you manage to get into your work. Do you find it hard to put the time aside for personal work? Personally I think that When you draw for a living it can sometimes be hard to sit down at the end of the day and get your own work done, it does help if you have a crummy brief at work.

    keep up the great work, your an inspiration.

    You have some very cool pieces there. I like the atmosphere and the color. But, in the first two, you seemed to have used a strange texture or brush, it works well in some places, but it seems out of place in others, like the outlines. Other than that, fantastic.

    Amazing! The first two are very bold and powerful, it's great to see you experiment with different techniques such as the dualtone textures.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Hey Sparth,
    I am happy to see that you are still producing some pieces.

    Nice work once again. I do not know why but finally, the painting I really enjoy the most is the last sketch, maybe because it looks like an extract from a movie.
