ho appreso la notizia proprio ora su un sito italiano...mi ha messo un po' di tristezza. È in assoluto uno degli artisti che preferisco. La storia l'ha voluto con se trasformandolo ufficialmente in un icona del fumetto mondiale.

Gran bell'omaggio!

Gabriele--I am a fan of Alex Toth's work too, and you certainly captured his imagination and style in this one!!

Nice drawing and very evocative of Toth. He really was exceptional-- one of the greatest.

HI Gabreile,
I love your work and the bold approach!! I was at DW for 10 years, from the beginning and am sorry we never met. If you get a chance please stop by my Blog as I would love to get you comments.

E' mancato uno degli ultimi Maestri della 9a arte. Consola il fatto che gente come te ne ha raccolto l'insegnamento.

Hey Gabriele,
That comes from drawing too many Daffy Duck eyes in a life time.
I did not know Alex Toth. Is that lion drawing one he did or you? If he did it, I can see the influence he had on you.
If it is a drawing you did describing the man, it's a great one, either way.

Thanks guys.

donald- Condivido i tuoi pensieri.

martin- My intention was to pay a tribute to a great artist. I believe that we all absorb something from the artists that we love.

samuel- Thanks. Your blog is full of beautiful pieces.

nomad- Grazie, il tuo complimento mi lusinga.

um- Thanks. Actually this is my drawing.
