Illustrator of the Week: Simone Bianchi

July 15, 2010

This week’s artist is another talented illustrator working out of Italy. He works primarily within the superhero genre and is another example of the quality artistry that can be produced within this genre.

This week’s artist/illustrator is Simone Bianchi

Bianchi has been working exclusively with Marvel Italia since 2006. Before that he had produced various covers for DC comics. He has produced covers for a number of Marvel series ranging from Spiderman to X-men. Some significant works include variant covers for the popular X-men: Messiah Complex story arc.

Bianchi’s painted style is distinctive. He uses watercolours and acrylics to render his work. He also uses extensive photo referencing and light boxing to produce a realistic feel. This is arguable a lazy technique but it is one that is often used within the industry. What makes him worth checking out is the end product which is certainly visually appealing.
