Tom Armati

In the best record's stores
 

Tom Armati is not just a singer, a songwriter or a music band: is an ironic philosophical songs smithy. Pop-rock reflections on contemporary life, from the Italian music underground.

The Tom Armati CD’s cover illustration and graphic design is based on the concept of the album title: “in the best record’s stores”. It is a little vintage-nonsense joke, that blink the eye on the 90ies American punk covers and transposes a banal everyday situation into an estranging unreal state, as in Tom’s songs. If you pay attention you can also detect a little quote of  “spaceball” the movie.

Scuola d'Arme Fiore dei Liberi

 

The well known school of ancient sword techniques "Scuola d'Arme Fiore dei Liberi" asked me for technical illustration that shows the basic positions of an ancient german sword technique... Something that was very accurate but far away the typical medieval monk's illustrations, in order to use it in the design of 4 Roll up Banners for exhibitions.
