Artists You Should Love: Alberto Breccia


[update]  Click here for info on Alberto Breccia

Ok, so a few years ago I pick up the "Art of Brian Boland" and crack it open.  Right there on one of the first pages, Brian is highlight some of his inspirations and art heroes.  He showed one drawing of this man and I instantly closed the book and started hunting for him online.  Mr. Boland actually got me to NOT look at his own book.

Alberto Breccia is this weeks artist.  I don't think there is one site for him, so you'll have to go on the same hunt that I did.  One of his most famous works was the tales of MORT CINDER.  An imortal that sits around with a buddy telling tales.  These are the images posted here.  I was lucky enough to find a Mort Cinder Collection a few years back.  About 300 pages of the most incredible black and white work I've ever seen.  Alberto was illustrating in the late 50's and 60's, so be careful, you're going to see where some of your heroes got their ideas from!  If anyone can spot what I'm talking about, i'll give you some kind of prize.

Breccia's black and white line art is amazing.  I couldn't image even trying to put color on this.  Something that he's able to do is "act" with drawings.  In a world of constant furrowed brows and gritted teeth, it's not often you come across a sequential artist that has the chops to take a character thru the full spectrum of emotion.  Breccia doesn't hide behind style.  Every face has lifetime of thoughts behind it.  

Ok, go on the hunt and have fun.  You will not be disappointed.

What a brilliant artist. His stuff is very good. I checked out his sons work (Enrique Breccia), he branched out into color work. It is worth checking out, there is some amazing stuff to see.

Been lovin his stuff since the late 80's. Have you seen Alvar Mayer? Four Winds, Tim Truman's publishing company brought it up here... beautiful book!

Frank Miller? Frank Miller can't touch this guy. I would say Jae Lee got his inspiration from him.

to put it in perspective, Breccia is as big as Eisner in the world of comics, unfortunately there's no material available in english.

Jim Steranko and Neal Adams were the first two that came to my mind.

Wow... I really see Frank Miller in the Mort Cinder stuff.

It reminds me of Gene Colon's work on "Tomb of Dracula" from the 70's.
