More Molino!

The recent unearthing by Paddy Lamb of storyboard frames painted(!) by an Italian illustrator, Roberto Molino (deceased) caused quite a stir here at Storyboard Central.

Recently another illustrator from Austria, Bernd Ertl, very generously sent me a second batch of Molino's fabulous art. Many thanks, Bernd!

This time, not only do we have some great quickie storyboard frames to admire, but a handful of gorgeous painted comps...

... AND a whole pile of finished art print ads by the mighty Molino - wow!

I've now put everything by Roberto Molino in a set on Flickr - if any more comes my way, I'll be sure to present it here and add it to the archive.


  1. Great stuff Leif
    I've always wondered why more comics weren't produced in storyboard style. As is obvious from Molino's style there's a lot more dynamism going on than in many tightly rendered comic illustrations. As to the dull generic computer rendered colouring on most releases these days, good board artists are miles ahead.

  2. This is the kind of work that makes me feel inspired to draw - particularly the beautiful storyboard and comp work. Thanks for sharing!

  3. This stuff is just phenomenal! Thanks again Leif...
