Welcome to my Gallery. These are some of the illustrations I drew for
covers or presentations for my comics. You may view them full-lenght
by clicking any image. Write me what you think!
Hikari (Seizei is the 2nd name) is my very very favorite and
dearest character. She is like my daughter. She was born back
in 1983 by an inspiration given to me by the anime Magical
Angel Creamy Mami. I wanted to make a comic about what
really happens in the showbiz and that was "LIVE! Seizei Hikari
Rockstar", a 20 chapts x 20 pgs project that ended up incomplete but
has the whole script written down and 12 chapts finished.
Hikari is the sweetest but modern Japanese girl and since she has
natural blond hair and green eyes I decided to set the story in a
(very) hypothetical year 2250. It's the story of her career with the S.H.B.
(Seizei Hikari Band) from their first small regional tours to the worldwide
ones, with all the sex & drugs issues and problems people really have
to deal with in the showbiz, since we usually tend to forget or maybe are not
aware that that world is not all-gold-and-diamonds or cherry pie. (?)
Psycho For Your Love
"Psycho For Your Love" is a glorious rock track by the Meteors,
mentors of Psychobilly, a "punky" degeneration of our good old Rockabilly
born (I guess) in England in the early '80s. Guess what - yes indeed I had this hairstyle too!
It was 4-5 years ago by now (ah, good old days!). The girl drawn in the picture
is a living mythos of what used to be the most loved and most hated
(especially by neighbors and police) rock club in the Padana Valley back in Italy
(now -sob - shut down) She was called "The Cyclist" (because of the Adidas shirts she
wore) or simplier "The Psycho(billy woman)" and she is the one that initiated me
to the art of Stompin' (some kind of non-jumpin' pogo), dancing to the beat of slaps,
pows, whacks and smacks, given and taken...ah, the good old times! Do you still remember,
"There you go, Ataru Moroboshi from Uruseiyatsura!". Yes, you are
it does look like him, but the problem is that...this is a GIRL! Tatsuya
Ozora has also a man's name and she's always been fooled by her classmates
because of it to the extent that after the elementary school she started dressing like
a boy and also talking like one, even though she was a totally normal girl.
(Well if you were a girl but you had Ataru's face you wouldn't feel very
comfortable, would you?) she was very insecure about herself and her looks,
she thought she was ugly and she didn't like to talk or have people around.
Until high school, when she met the happy-go-lucky super-cutie of the class
Akemi Akita. Aki-chan is so nice, beautiful and full of life that Tacchan
Ozora-kun by anybody else) can't help admiring and envying her and ends
becoming her best friend. Then things get really going when Aki-chan's
introduces his friend Hikaru Okita, promising star of motorcycle-racing and
to the boy-hater Tatsuya: "Hm...he's not as stupid as all the others after all.".
Genei Jo - (The Shadow/Phantom Woman)
International spy, killer, thief and swindler multi-experienced crime
She came to life because I felt the need to find Osamu Tezuka's Black
Jack a girlfriend (?!)
then she bounced to and from any corner of my teenage magic comic world
to many stories mostly as cameo. She appears in LIVE! also and inspires
Hikari to write
a song. Of course I wrote all the song words in the comic (Hikari's and
(excluding real artist's ones of course!). But almost none of my comics have
ever been finished
therefore none ever got published either!
This was a very very experimental attempt to make a "cool" SF comic like
Omnipotent Master of All the Comic Gods, the French Moebius. I've always
forever will be deeply in love with Jerry Cornelius' Hermetic Garage renown also as
The Fatal Major, marvelous and totally incomprehensible hyperspace tale
decided to try to create something science-surrealistic myself, but I just
a totally different Universe with totally different standards and relative
concepts for time
and space and I got totally lost in it! Dumb is as dumb does.
