Hello, my name is David Bezzina,
Mythology, adventure, fantastic tales of horror and magic, science fiction and pulp fantasy are the subjects which most inspire me. I love a myriad of art styles and artists, from the legendary Jack Kirby to 19th century illustrators like Edmund Dulac, N.C Wyeth, Arthur Rackham, William Russell Flint and Henry Justice Ford. I grew up obsessed by British weekly comics (Whizzer & Chips and Knockout from the 70's were my first regular buys) and American monthly mags from Marvel, Charlton and DC.
Paperback cover Illustrators like Chris Foss, Sanjulian, Rodney Matthews, Bruce Pennington, Peter Andrew Jones, Melvyn, Alan Lee, Jeffrey Jones & Frank Frazetta are big influences. I like the work of Alphonse Mucha, Corot, Sargent, Repin, Klimt and JMW Turner to name a few.
thank you. and if you would like to discuss a commission don't be shy.
