Los Tigres Del Ring

It is now out ," Los Tigres Del Ring ", by Jimmy Pantera ... A wonderful book about the whole Lucha Libre culture; Jimmy has a huuuge collection of vintage comics, exclusive vintage photo-stories, radioactive toys, photos, and anecdotes and knows how to share his passion for the Mexican wrestling. Lucha libre is quite a trendy thing these days, but "Los Tigres Del Ring" has soul !

( I had the chance to paint the cover, in a photorealistic/painterly way this time, I really enjoyed doing it ! )



A few inner pages ...

Amazing paintings you have here, I didn't know you had a blog until now.
You are one of my favorite artists and I feel very inspired when looking at any of your works.
I'll definitely keep my eyes on this place.

you're not the first one who told me about the nose, i think the color of the nose gets lost in the eye socket, good call :)
