Azure Cover by ToolKitten
Azure Cover
My new project is off to the printers! There is but 100 copies of this preview issue and whatever I dont sell in seattle I will put online! Soon I will also be putting the digital copy up here for sale with points.

stay tuned!

"Azure is about the crushing physicality of depression, and the way that, when freed from its weight, we can fly." - Pat Shand

This cover was digipainted on livestream in about 3 hours.

Alright friends, fans, art loves, beautiful people,= and students of the art world, I have something awesome to tell you!

I have started a brand new venture on the side of my everyday work , that is hopefully going to allow me to provide you all with some amazing art and How-To-Video's of my work processes!

Patreon.com is an great site that allows creators to make a page that offers various levels of patronage for people to support cet' creator and receive various levels of rewards!

The reason I feel like this could work great is because with your support I would be able to do 2 things (at first):

1.) I would be able to create my new comic called 'Howl' - with your support I would be able to designate more time to a comic that I am dying to create Howl- unlettered by ToolKitten

2.) I would be able to create constant How-To Videos/Tutorials - On Patreon.com I am able to upload all of my livestream videos, high res files and the .tiff files with my actual 'layers' in Photoshop!

We could even combine these 2 things and with your support I could draw and color my own comic, whilst uploading every sketch, file, and vidoe of my process...complete it together and then you would all receive the finished product either digitally or hard copy depending on your level of patronage. Some rewards also include monthly original sketches from me signed to you personally!!

So for any of you who buy my art, want to learn how I do it, or simply just want to see it all happening with daily updates please feel free to check out www.patreon.com/neiruffino and who knows where we could go together! :)

Do you still do tattoo work? I'd do just about anything for even the smallest sitting with you at the Denver Comic Con this year. It would be the best souvenir ever.
