Mario Capaldi Artist

Comic Art

This comic art gallery shows a selection of characters and stories which Mario illustrated throughout his career for many different publications.  Some of the stories were long-standing and could run for weeks, months or even years (like the Care Bears) others may have been short runs or one-offs (like Harry Potter, Aladdin or The Wombles).  In most cases Mario also provided the colour for the artwork, but some companies preferred the artist to create the cover in pencils or pencil and ink and have their own colourist to ink in.  Please note that the copyright for these comic characters belongs to a variety of other companies and copyright holders, although Mario was most definitely the artist for all the artwork shown here.  Even with his comic art, he demonstrates an extremely wide variety of mediums and styles as well as a wide spectrum of emotion, including pathos and humour.
