One Man Army opens this Friday (26th march)!

Hey folks, a little sneak peek at a couple of the paintings I've been working on for my show.

These are in- progress shots, so they weren't quite finished when these snaps were taken, but I hope you like 'em anyway! They're just under A1 in size, and are acrylic, gouache, ink and marker on wood. They'll all be framed and under glass.

Right, I hope to see any of you folks who are in the area on Friday, the night runs from 6pm - 10pm at the Weapon of Choice Gallery here in Bristol.

See you there!


Show blurb:

"One Man Army unceremoniously opens up the bizarre mind of comic book artist Lorenzo! and spills it all across the walls of the Weapon of Choice Gallery. Featuring a series of graphic portraits of individuals who fall comfortably into the category of "best left alone" this cast of miscreants are a visual snapshot of Dark Pop for the post-Gorillaz generation. Alongside the seven big new paintings are a series of exclusive ONE OF ONE prints, restored from the archives and splashed with all the colours in the paint box that the other kids were too scared to use. Expect robots, monkeys, robot monkeys, the undead and the soon-to-be-dead. This is Uranium at Lead prices."

Twilight Comic News!

Okay, that title may be SLIGHTLY misleading. The Twilight in question is actually Anakin Skywalker's Starship, but that doesn't make it any less exciting!

Yes, it's Clone Wars time again, with a tale written by me and illustrated by the ever excellent Tanya Roberts!

It's a new month and a new adventure for the intrepid Jedi as Anakin and Ahsoka (ably assisted by Rex) respond to a distress call from a stranded Trade vessel. Unfortunately for our heroes, nothing in deep space is ever quite what is seems...

Issue 6.5 is in the shops (and supermarkets!) now so grab yourself a copy before stocks run out.

GO HERE - to subscribe to the comic and never miss an issue again!
