Vampirella like Rio by Nagel2008Oct30

Terrific Vampirella drawing by Cliff Chiang, who has a fun blog. It’s an homage to Rio, of course — by Patrick Nagel. Nagel was among my inspirations when I was a teenager. The technical craftsmanship, the acute graphic design sense inspired me.

I was a fan of Nagel back in the day. His style was so crisp and clean, and his women so beautiful. I happened upon your piece by mistake and was really intrigued.

Your rendering of his Rio cover is Mad real, very much like Nagel would have done it himself.

Great work

It’s pretty great right Alyn? See it on Cliff’s website at Cliff Chiang!
