The site provides only a small glimpse of his diverse body of work produced over the last nearly 30 years, covering everything from professional illustration work to sculptures to fine art paintings and sketches.

Ario has a new blog set up here to provide news updates.

New York ComicCon Feb 6-8, 2009

We're signed up to be at the upcoming New York ComicCon, being held at the Javitz Center from February 6-8, at booth #2382.

We'll be sharing the booth with the good folks from Red Sector Art, led by my friend Enrico Salvini.

With me will be an artist that I represent, Ted McKeever, who will be at the booth to sign copies of the newly released Definitive Ted McKeever Library hardcover editions published by Image Comics, including Book 1: Transit and Book 2: Eddy Current. Ted will also be drawing a limited number of commissions, and some original art of past work will be available for sale.

Red Sector Art will have artist Eduardo Risso available, too.

More news when it comes...
