    Alex Nino - Original Illustration (1992). Alex Nino was born in the Philippines, and dreamed of being a comic artist since he was a small boy. In 1974, Nino moved to the United States, where his career really took off. He has probably worked for every American comic publishing house, on prestigious titles such as House of Mystery, Bold Adventures, Star Reach Classics and many others. Known for his luxurious textures and wood-cut looking linework, Nino has established his own very unique style, which is seldom imitated. This 13.5" x 22" image was drawn in pain-staking detail on a sheet of 14" x 22.5" bristol board, and features skeletons and fairies, side by side with monsters, half hidden in the darkness. The work is clean and has an almost printed look. Beautiful, exquisite and haunting... a masterful image by a true original.
