SEVENTH CIRCLE

Lionel Marty's Wild Artbook : Sketches, illustrations, paintings

About the project

SEVENTH CIRCLE

Why this title?

 

In the first part of Dante's Divine Comedy, the seventh circle of Inferno is the place of the violent men and women.

Violent the characters and situations you'll see in this artbook ? Surely !

Why ?

Because an artist is a human being with his obsessions. He cuts the same furrow his all life. If he goes out the rut for a moment -only to proove he can - he'll fall back soon.

Probably because he needs it, searching something essential.

 

 


The reading of the novel "Fire's war" written by Rosny Aîné was decisive. My father offered me the book in an illustrated version, conducive to stimulate the imagination of the young boy I was.

 



 

This first encounter with a story of men braving the hostile nature, the wilderness, was decisive.

Then, I searched this themes in the adventure stories of Jack London, R.E Howard, E. R . Burroughs, and the horrific novels of H. P Lovecraft. In Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad, or in sacience-fiction stories like the Frank Herbert's Dune...

 

It's the first thing appearing when I draw. Barbarians, Deep jungles, isolated mountains, raged elements. Men into the wild.

 

This book includes many of private studies, showing a new aspect of my art only glimpsed in my published books.

No genre classification. You'll find barbarians beside robots.

No restrictions. Just like Joseph Conrad said : "We are used to looking at it like a chained-up monster, but there it was monstrous and free. "

 


 

I wanted the wind of adventure blows in this pages, as in Pulp novel's, Weird Tales, old Tarzan comic books, R.E. Howard and Lovecraft's novels, Science Fiction stories of my youthness... even in the choice of paper and layout.

 

 

This book will be 90 pages long, in four colour process, cover with matt surface, and 6,7 x 9,8 inches size.

my best artworks, in my prefered style.

Welcome in my furrow ! I hope you'll let yourself go through my Universe and the wild walk will please you.
