Today i have recieved a terrible bad news, Stefano, a very close friend of me has passed away.
He has worked as a conceptual artist and special effects techinician of various italian cinema, music and television production. He ever loved my work and has ever encourage me to keep drawing.
He was like a family member so i'm extremely sad.
The character shown in my homage to him is Marius, a monster he created as a mascot for an italian metal compilation called Metallo Italia.
