This time though there's an interesting look behind the scene at Pratt's great visual thinking (and that, to me, is the true greatness of a visual artist, not her or his tech mastery).
That said, let's go...
Hugo Pratt, Hugo Pratt 50, Visualprint, 1980.
The above drawing was published in a book by Gianni Berti showing Hugo Pratt's work from the 1950s. As a comment Berti wrote (undoubtedly misinformed by Pratt; my translation):
The drawing below was an idea for the cover of a war book (Ernie Pike). It was refused because it was considered to be too violent at the time.If that's the case may I ask what's that below?
Hugo Pratt, Hora Cero Extra! # 10, June 1959.
