I did these twin pieces to illustrate a short tale by Tullio Avoledo in Wired Italy. It is a special number with a number of science-fiction stories, a sort of hommage to the Amazing Stories magazine.

The story is about a portrait of Saint Thomas Becket from the Renaissance which is found to hide and older, mysterious picture below. This second picture is only visible when looking at the canvas under a special light. It is confirmed that it dates from the XVI century, and it is the portrait of a WWII german soldier.

Thank god for time travel.

So it’s… World Cup time. And here’s an illustration I did a couple of months ago for the nice guys at Popular Mechanics, for an article describing the geeky aspects of the games.
As you may guess, all that empty space above and below was reserved for title and text boxes.

Actually I was testing some acrylics on a sheet of coloured paper which was intended for pastels. Not really recommended.

Dear kids, this is Batman. He used to be a comic-book character before he was a movie star.

Just discovered your works and my mind was blown: clean, minimalistic, retro-ish, geek-friendly art - as though you have been creating art especially for me ;) Sending over my admiration, no actual question enclosed. Awaiting eagerly to see future works.

Thank you. The geek-friendly part made me very happy.
