“Photography is an immediate reaction, drawing is a meditation.”
Henri Cartier-Bresson 

 


The first part of my career has seen paper as the main media of my work. In 1996 I started using the computer and I needed some time before being able to use it effectively in my work. For those who entered the world of comics and illustration just five years after me it may probably seem strange, but at the time there were no computers to work faster, You Tube to see how the big ones worked, let alone Google to look up for inspiration or reference material. Once Internet did not even exist. Work was done by looking up reference material and inspiration in magazines and libraries. One had to dirty his own hands with paint and brushes and if a work was not satisfactory, you could not click Ctrl Z and go back, you had to redo the design or find a way to correct it with razor blades and/or overlays.
Among the many works I will show you some that have been made on computer and a few others that I’ve had time to scan. Probably but not certainly, I’ll be adding other material soon, if and when I find the time to scan it.

Between July and August 2010 I did, as a joke, a car caricature. The result amused me and the process was simple enough that in no time I ended up doing hundreds. Although a little off-topic, I find them funny and decided to share them. Below I show you some of them. Should you be interested, I am available to do a caricature of your car or of the one you prefer.
