Mark Arnold reviews Dirty Works, an artbook featuring Lorenzo Sperlonga, one of Heavy Metal’s most prolific talents.


Dirty Works


A Heavy Metal book that focuses on the art of Lorenzo Sperlonga, one of HM’s most prolific and talented painters. Also featured are brief bios of some of the models Sperlonga used like Veronika Kotlajic, Julie Strain and many other women who have been immortalized in his paintings. Rounding out the collection is a feature on the method Sperlonga goes through from conception to completion of each of his works. Perfect for fans of “good girl” art and of fantasy art in general.
