30 Years of Dragonball tribute for Kanzenshuu.com

db30years_website_cover_splash

A short while ago I had the opportunity of being part of a 30th Anniversary of Dragon Ball Art Show at Q POP in Los Angeles, CA. My piece, ‘The Journey Begins’ was noticed by the fan-run website, Kanzenshuu.com. I had the wonderful opportunity of having my illustration featured as the cover splash page for their fanzine, with the issue celebrating 30 years of Akira Toriyama’s legacy, Dragon Ball.

The Dog Bites, by Kit Palmer – Book Cover Design by Peter Fasolino

dannyyy

A commissioned book cover I designed and illustrated for a Police Detective in Sydney, Australia who wrote his memoirs using a pseudonym – Kit Palmer. The author imagines Kit as Dick Tracy with a Charles Bukowski outlook with rude wit, a lively sense of the grotesque, a disgust for sham, and a contempt for pettiness. One of his interrogation techniques noted in his memoirs was using a wet mop he found in a urinal as a persuasive informative tool for confessions as well as giving the perpetrator a free shampoo rinse and facial.

Promoting PICASSOS – Violet Lemay

Violet Lemay has finished illustrating a wonderful 32-page unreleased children’s picture book called 100 Pablo Picassos for duopress – and is now doing the rounds by sharing the promotional experience to drum up a bit of hype. You can check out the former lecturer of self-promotion’s blog about it by following the external link. It’s part one, so there’s more to come. :)

We have a preview copy! Yay! Exciting.

Varoom – The Fashion Issue

Varoom_28_cover_outlined_450

When is that perfect moment of Fashion, when you could be perfectly, ‘in Fashion’?

This is the kind of offbeat musing that Fashion projects often provoke. And Varoom 28 features many extravagantly offbeat visual ideas, from Prada’s use of illustration, via the feature on Fashion and Film which includes images created from a games engine by Reed + Rader, to the story of the uncommonly fabulous Flair magazine which ran for a single year, to our exclusive extract from a new book that identifies and illustrates the differing dress worn by over 40 Catholic nuns, illustrated by Ryan Todd.

Bridget Strevens-Marzo gives us a window on the different Children’s book fashions in the UK and France, and reflects on some timeless visual traits and more recent fashions. Regular contributor Marian Bantjes delivers an enigmatic uniquely crafted double-page image, and columnist Paul Davis takes his cutting scissors through fashion trends, rip-offs and the need for new clichés. Quentin Jones created Varoom 28’s striking cover image.
