    We were recently contacted by Italian freelance graphic designer and illustrator, Diamante Beghetto, who has embarked on a project titled, Beautiful Jungle. In which Diamante draws on top of vintage photographs using Uni-posca paint markers. Adding creatures and distorting figures, to otherwise mundane imagery, to create humorous yet unsettling visuals.

  6. Sergio Toppi (1932-2012)

    Milanese illustrator Sergio Toppi began his career in advertising but by 1966 had moved into comics. Toppi accumulated a tremendous body of work during his career include titles such as Collezionista (“Collector”), Linus, Corto Maltese and many one-shot comics during his long-term collaboration with writer Il Giornalino. His style is unmistakeable, geometrically dominated with loose sketchy pencil work. A fantastic amalgamation of tone, pattern and texture. His recent passing has definitely been felt throughout the whole illustration community, and his unique mind will be missed. One of his most notable works, Sharaz-de: Tales from the Arabian Nights, is soon to be released (9th October) in a hardcover English edition, and is definitely one to have in your collection.

  7. Massimo Carnevale aka Sketchesnatched

    The lack of information on Massimo Carnevale is actually quite amusing. I can tell you two things about him, although you have probably already figured them out for yourself. One, he is Italian and two, his work is amazing. Whether he is doing digital painting, or ink work his style and control is fantastic. Mr. Carnevale does have a lot of fan art in his portfolio and seems to have a particular affinity to cult movies, and chooses some golden moments to illustrate. See more of his over on his blog.
