Back in Italy

Just went back in Italy from my trip in U.S.A. I had a wonderful time during the New York Comic Con with David Lloyd, Adi Tantimedh, Jim Alexander and the other guys from the Aces Weekly and not. The small trip we had after that has been amazing specially for the unparalled friendship that my bro John Escobales and wife always demonstrates me and thanks again to Ryan Matta for being my main Newyorker into the big city. All the promo stuff we had for Gabriel - Warrior Exorcist went away and I really thank all of you who walked by our table to talk, have a sketch, a sign or just shake hands. Now I've barely the time to unpack my stuff 'cause I've a lot of work to do, specially on the Gabriel book so stay tuned!

Bits from the last moments of The Complex volume 1

Aces Weekly, what's that about...

"ACES WEEKLY is an exclusively digital comic art magazine tailored for computer and tablet, featuring top talents in sequential art from around the globe. Published by David Lloyd - the man who brought you V For Vendetta - and managed by ex- Marvel editor, Bambos Georgiou, Aces Weekly offers an exciting new opportunity for creators in the medium of comic art : the ability to connect directly with their readers, unchained by the limitations of retail and distribution which, for decades, have restricted the reach of many great comics stories published for print. Creators in Aces Weekly are given the freedom to tell almost any story they want to tell, with complete ownership of their creation assured, and an equal share of all income generated.

Join us for a bold new venture in digital entertainment, brought to you by some of the best and brightest storytellers in the world!

Aces Weekly can be acquired only via our website - And appears every 7 days with continuing stories from great creators, including...
David Lloyd, Kyle Baker, David Hitchcock, John McCrea, Lew Stringer, Mark Wheatley, Yishan Li, Herb Trimpe, David Leach, Alain Mauricet, Paul Maybury, Billy Tucci, Bill Sienkiewicz, Marc Hempel, James Hudnall, Carl Critchlow, Kev Hopgood, Steve Bissette, Val Mayerick, Henry Flint, Dan Christensen, Shaky Kane, Dave Hine, Colleen Doran, Dylan Teague... and many more."

This last July I was talking about the comic industry with the great David Lloyd during a break at the ComicsxAfrica and he hit me with this idea/ project he was working on by some time already and offered me to join this carnet composed by top-quality authors, I, feeling very honored, talked about some pitches I was working on with novel writer Giuseppe Rungetti and immediately felt that really was a good idea following this new, exciting path insted of the convenctional route. Giuseppe and I cutted down to 2 only pitches to choose from: "Memoria Mortale", an adaptation of one of his sci-fi novels and "Gabriel,  Warrior Exorcist", a post-apocalyptic/ new-medieval/ semi-stempunk idea for a comic book. We choose the second one and immediately started to write/ sketch/ design etc... I'm working on the pages right now (beside the other gigs) and I'm very excited about the whole thing, about David's project itself, about Giuseppe's and mine project, about Bambos Georgiu's (UK Marvel Editor) help in making things work properly, about all the amazing talents involved and about the media itself; I'm a strong supporter of the digital media and really think you should do too.

At this year New York Comic Con I'll be at Aces Weekly's table in the Artist Alley (with David Lloyd and many other guys from the project) sketching, signing and giving away cards, prints and stuff, just stop to talk with us about the project or the stories and authors involved.

Once Gabriel's time to go out aproaches I'll be posting wallpapers, sketches and behind-the-scenes of the pages (beside what I'll be already showing/ giving away at the nycc).

Here's some pdf's containing infos to download so you can better read about details:

Aces Weekly pdf -1
Aces Weekly pdf -2

We really hope you're as excited as we are about this thing :)

Yes, that's a naked chick under a robe... deal with it! :D

Detail from a page I just finished and, before you ask, drawing something with naked chicks make me feel really better!

Here we go!

The title says it all: brand new (long awaited) project, written by Giuseppe Rungetti ( Right now I'm working on the roughs and this's just a small panel from page 1, sadly I can't say more 'case, so far, it's all still under the 'top secret' label but I'll be plenty of details and previews once the the projects become more 'public'. I really can't wait to share this book that has been sitting on Giuseppe's and mine desk for too much time (about 3 years) with you!

Wedding illustrations

Did something different lately. That's some illustrations I did for a wedding packaging (invitations, tickets, posters and stuff). In this case there're the (funny) portrait of him and her as seen in the 'ceremony' invitations. Had a lot of fun doing something different and those guys are very cool and kind. Wish them the best!

More from The Complex

Bottom panels of one of the last pages I did: Things getting worse down there if you've to kick a door down and rush into the room in a semi-swat mode.

This (very) small detail panel has been removed from the page right before the inking so it's a kind of outtake, right?

2 words about Al Rio

Today, while having a chat with David Campiti, Al's agent and very close friend, about Rio's art he said what, for me, sounded like the ultimate way to describe the place he took into the art kingdoom:

"Well, Al was Scott Campbell and Adam Hughes with a little bit of Jim Lee and Neal Adams, depending on what the client wanted. And at the heart of it, it had the joy of a Disney animator."

The Gutters #249

Hi guys

Here's a very fast assignment I did last night for The-Gutters. On the website you can see the "published" version and here you can see the lay-out, pencil and ink progress. Had a lot of fun doing it, primarily, for the satyric/parody side of the thing and second for the lot of playing I had to do with body language and facial expressions. 

So, here's the published page 

The lay-out:

The pencil:

Anf the inks:

Good bye Al.

Today Al rio passed away. Al was one of the artists who most af others influenced my grown as an artist, in the years (specially when I was at the early stages) I used to spend countless hours studying, analyzing or just looking at his images. I think it's pretty useless to stay here and say how I was (am) a big fan, how I've always refered to him as one of my main influences, how I was honored to have him covering books I drew, etc... but I think the only sensate thing I can say here is: I loved your art Al, I loved your effort in giving the world so many beautiful pieces of art and I thank you for being that unachievable ability in creating such beautiful pieces of art that I've chased by the first time I've seen your art. Please, for who of you who don't know who Al Rio was go: and, for who of you who already knew who he was I'm sure you already did.

Good bye Al, good bye my friend.
