Lorenzo Mattotti

Published by under Uncategorized

For some comic geeks, this man needs no introduction. For the rest of you, let me introduce you to an artist who, for the last 15 years, I have kind of worshiped for his unique and powerful work. I mean, you know I love painterly, fine-arty comics, right? This guy really sets the standard for painterly fine-arty comics!

He was in town from Italy for Book Expo last week. He did an event at the Society of Illustrators which I wasn’t able to attend, but he was also doing free sketches at the show, at an Italian publishing booth on Thursday morning, so I eagerly lined up for it. He was drawing mostly angels and an occasional odd creature for people, inside a sort of brochure for Oltremai. I wish I could tell you more specifics about this brochure, but I didn’t actually get one, because when I handed him my copy of Dr. Jeckyll & Mister Hyde (probably my favorite of his books in English), he drew in that instead. So I didn’t get a hangable piece, but I did get a very unique and awesome Mr. Hyde in my book.
