"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." 

-Christian DiBari

 

"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."

-Christian DiBari

 

"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." 

-Christian DiBari

 

"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."

-Christian DiBari

 

"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." 

-Christian DiBari

 

"I met Kiyarn through Simon Gough, a few years back, we had started working on the Lovecraftian book -- Provenance Of Madness. He’s got some great ideas and I enjoy his writing a lot so we’re creating a good amount of horror comics." 

 

"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.
