In 2005 Farel Dalrymple contributed - with some other Italian and International artists - to the gallery of homage illustrations contained in Sergio Toppi: Nero su bianco con eccezioni, a book written and edited by Fabrizio Lo Bianco, published in Italy by Black Velvet. The volume explored in depth the career and works of SERGIO TOPPI, the worldwide acclaimed Master of Comics Art and Illustration.
In that occasion Dalrymple drew a great portrait of Toppi's character Il Collezionista (The Collector).
Many thanks to Mr. Dalrymple for his generous support to the book and... for his permission to show here his gorgeous illustration. Enjoy! :)
