After having the privilege to illustrate Larry's article about Dieselpunk culture on Wikipedia, I have been lucky enough to be asked by Hayen to design a cover illustration for his Dieselpunk novel "Drunk on Diesel" he is working about. Wow...
Hope the picture will make you feel the way I do : tingling with excitement to read Hayen's great novel…Continue
I guess I may have been a little too ambitious about this very conceptual picture. Anyway, uneasy as it is to express visually, at least in just one frame, this concept of "reality that doesn't exist" is an all time very dear one to my own schizophrenic self. Non-existing reality... fabricated reality... not quite like in The Matrix which, in spite of his commercial…Continue

Stormy weather... pollution... impending conflict... heavy atmosphere... Just another ordinary day in Diesel City, the city where you never can tell if it's day or night and where heavy machines criss-cross a threatening sky. Diesel powered machines, of course.
More about the dark Diesel Ciy in the album of the…Continue
A couple of vintage style exhibition poster projects...
Answering your question, Larry - and you and AthenaPrime are just too kind, I want to say again - yes, of course, I would like very much to have my graphic work, some of it, published. Who wouldn't ? Sadly, it is even more difficult to have graphic work published than novels or books, I think, mainly for…Continue
