About the Author
LRNZ is the penname of artist and designer Lorenzo Ceccotti, who has made waves throughout the different fields of visual art around the world. Hailing from Rome, Italy, he is a founding member of the collective SuperAmici studio and BRUTUS/CHIMP Co. He was animation director for the documentary “The Dark Side of the Sun,” concept artist on the live action sci-fi short film "The Nostalgist," and production designer for both the graphic novel and upcoming live action feature film “Monolith” due for release this year.
With a passion for music, video games, animation, and film, he has blended all of these inspirations into a unique visual style that mixes line art, painted brushwork, and graphic design. His work sets him apart within a peer group of masters such as Terada, Moebius, Otomo, Bilal, Darrow, Madureira, Steranko, Sienkiewicz, and Stout.
He has also applied this talent to storytelling, with a handful of short comic book stories leading up to his first full-length graphic novel, GOLEM, which has been translated into numerous languages to date. It is a 280-page tale filled with sci-fi adventure, futuristic intrigue, political commentary, and spiritual metaphor using the universal archetype of visual storytelling: sequential art.
GOLEM was published in English by Magnetic Press, who proudly introduced this spectacular visionary work to North American audiences.
