Gorgeous art. It looks like something you'd find in Heavy Metal magazine, am I correct?
@mortellanSure that last one's from Heavy Metal or Metal Hurlant, don't know about the rest.
He did a bunch of Conan, but I think most of his US stuff was for stuff like House of Mystery. Like Alcala (who did, like, 90% of the inking on Buscema's Conan pages) he was from the Philippines too. They're both really awesome inking

**both awesome inkers.
I hate finding out about artists currently active...who don't have blogs. Come on, I want to add you to my feed reader so it reminds me that you exist every so often, & I can get inspired by your images!
Don't know much about him beyond his Heavy Metal strips. I used to use that eyeball painting as my blog banner.
Alex Nino's work is amazing. I met his nephew on several occaisions as he too is an artist and works with a friend of mine.That first piece is flippin' fantastic.
I've got a comic of Wells' The Time Machine that he illustrated around here that I've had since I was kid. His Morlocks are what I think of when I think of The Time Machine.
