Welcome to the first edition of the N.W.A's "A Nerd's Guide to Art". A look at all things nerdy in the world of art, running the gambit from fan's who show their love through visual arts to professionals who give us the images we fall in love with. So come with me each week as we explore artworks throughout all of the Nerd Empire.
To start things off, I thought we would start with a personal hero of mine, Donato Giancola. Giancola is a well established oil paint, with over twenty years experience working in the industry. He has worked for many companies, including big names like DC Comics and Wizards of the Coast. Working in the style of Imaginative Realism, Giancola has created paintings from properties like the Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Magic the Gathering, as well as works dealing with a fantasy take on modern space exploration and even empathetic robots (a must see). Please be sure to check out his website at donatoarts.com and at artstation.com/donatoarts, as well as the examples of his work in this blog.
