In the following spotlight, Tales of Technihorror artist Christian DiBari takes us inside the house of horrors that is his art studio. Giving us (and you) a glimpse into the creative madness that dwells there. Keep reading...
"I am Christian DiBari, Illustrator of comics and storyboards, and concept art. I’m from Hyde Park, MA but have been based out of NYC since the late ’90s."
"Tales Told in Techni-Horror is a side project that Kiyarn Taghan, Simon Gough, and myself had started in late 2019, but was more full-time last year due to COVID-19 delaying and canceling a bunch of work I had slated. It’s short horror stories, mostly experimental and trying different themes and all kinds of twisted ways to tell a story in a few pages."
"Tales Told in Techni-Horror collects the first full year of stories and some Illustrations both Simon and I had done for Patreon. We’ll keep going as a Quarterly, more short stories and at some point, we’ll do one-shots or maybe mini-series on a few of the stories we felt had more to offer."
"Like most kids, I discovered comics at a young age. I think I was around 8-years-old when I got my very first comic, a Batman/Superman comic in the early ’80s. From there I bought lots of different stuff."
"I started drawing very early on, but once I was in High School I really wanted to draw in comics. So I kept at it, learning what I could and building a portfolio. I think once I had started going to comic conventions and meeting professionals, getting feedback on my work. That’s when I really started to try to make something of it. But, like anything it takes time and I’m still learning as I go."
"I draw very loose with pencils and do the bulk of the work with inks, so I’m not too sure but I love to spill as much ink on the paper as I can."
I'm currently reading Jazz Maynard by Raule and Roger, the first collection of that series, it’s amazing stuff.
Tales of Technihorror (APR211900) is available to pre-order now from your local comic shop. Issue #1 arrives June 2, 2021.
