Alex Varanese :
"Tortured artist, rogue scientist and international playboy"
"Spends nights and weekends trying to repair his time machine"
"Likes red more than you do"
Apart from being sarcastic and generally messing about, Alex Varanese is a very talented artist, and recently released a "spiritual sequel" to his earlier series, Urban Cartography, entitled Urban Cartography II: The Metro.
From Alex's blog:
"I spent a good portion of 2009 working on Urban Cartography, my second major series and to this day one of the most ambitious projects of my career ("career"? really?)."
