Interests
Personally I am a completely non-religious humanist, but I wish a hearty Happy Easter to those who celebrate it.

I know you think I'm a bit late, since for a lot of the world Easter was this past weekend, but I live in a country where Easter is celebrated based on the Julian rather than Gregorian Calendar, which means this year Easter comes on the 12th.

Oh, and while I'm at it, Happy Passover for those of Jewish faith.

But moving on to the primary reason for this post, I bet you are wondering why I haven't posted anything since October of last year.
Well, let me tell you it's been a gruelling six months. Nothing bad per se happened to me directly, but a lot of bad stuff happened to my loved ones, culminating in my mother being seriously injured in a car accident in February.
As a consequence, I spent the last few months in a support/ primary caregiver position, which meant all my free time evaporated.

However, I did manage to work a number of projects of which I am very pleased, including two books already published and a Comic book which is to leave the press in a couple of days.

First off, I know this might come as a surprise, but I've illustrated a children's book for a friend of mine, Mari Arsenie, named "The Adventures of Laslo the Dawrf".
Let me tell you, it was a surprise for me as well, since I'm more adept at drawing artillery pieces than dwarves, but there you have it. The artwork, by the way, can be found here:
 The Adventures of Laslo the Dwarf by wingsofwrath

Secondly, it is exactly artillery pieces I drew, since I illustrated a non-fiction book about the Focsani-Namoloasa-Galati Fortified Region (Also known as the Sereth Line).
This is the second book I illustrated for the Romanian Military museum, the first one being about Austro Hungarian artillery, waaay back in 2011.

 Here are the actual drawings, all nine of them:

Finally, the one I am most proud of, I have been asked by the good folks over at Mythopoeia to make a few drawings to accompany the second issue of their dieselpunk comic book, Skies of Fire.

Edit, 21.04.15: The Kickstarter of the second issue is currently active! Help us bring this comic to print and earn rewards in the process. If the Kickstarter makes it to 12k you will also get postcards drawn by me of some of the ships in the comic.

Speaking of which, Here is a poster I drew which so hows some of the ship types from this world and will make an appearance in the codex of the second issue as well as make a nifty wall decoration:

Ilustratiile  cu artileria Skoda iti apartin? Oricum am trimis si pentru ele.

Din cate imi amintesc ai parasit grupul pentru ca nu vroiam sa accept Cartoons. Raman pe positie dar pot sa accept illustratiile astea mai realiste/tehnice.

Te rog sa te intorci in grupul meu.

De fapt nu am parasit grupul - pur si simplu a fost o perioada de cateva luni in care nu am dat deloc pe DA din motive personale si invitatia a expirat pana sa apuc e sa o vad.

Ilustratiile Skoda sunt ale mele intr-adevar, au fost facute pentru o carte publicata de Muzeul Militar National si aflata in vanzare la acesta. La fel si ilustratiile FNG.

Imi pare rau, dar nu schimb denumirile desenelor pentru nimeni. Take it or leave it.

A fascinating gallery, your work reminds me of Miyazaki, and I have no higher praise.

Thank you! That is high praise indeed!

I am a fan of Miyazaki, but I've tried to not let myself be influenced too much by his work and instead do something else whenever possible.

Still, that is not always possible and, in fact, there are a lot of similarities in those cases where we ended up using the same primary sources for our inspiration - for example the wondrous machines of 19th century illustrator Albert Robida which served as base for the machines in Howl's Moving Castle and which I've also used for some of my drawings.

This is also why I've ended up grounding my work a lot more in reality rather than the realm of imagination in order to better create a world which is "my own" and, why not, show off a bit of my research...
