    Sergio Toppi R.I.P.

    Found out that the great illustrator, Sergio Toppi died. Fuck, too many of my illustration inspirations have died off this year, first Moebius, then McQuarrie, then Kubert, now him.

    RIP

    I am not familiar with Toppi, and now I could kick myself. What spectacular work! Reminds me a bit of Philippe Druillet's (B&W) work as far as the amount of detail goes. Just beautiful stuff.

    Toppi's artwork was a huge influence on artists like Walt Simonson and Sean Gordon Murphy.

    If you mean the Walter Simonson who did Michael Moorcock's Multiverse, oh yes...I can see it! Perhaps he had an influence on Bryan Talbot, as well? He has a similar style, it seems. I think of it as lavish art, with lots of detail and imagination and dramatic shadowing. Beautiful stuff to look at.

    I've never heard of him but man was he talented. What a terrible lost and I'm still pretty upset about Kubert. R.I.P.

    Its possible. Toppi was doing books all the way back into the 60s. I just wish there was more of his work available. The only thing available in the states in a small collection of his work put out through Ashley Wood's Sparrow line.

    Yeah, he was an amazing artist. I'm only familiar with his work from art sites but good god, what a talent.

    Yeah, and I think Mike Grell, too.

    yeah, you have to get European editions of his stuff. I've spent a pretty penny at Stuart Ng for some of his books:
