I know Maroto mostly for his work as a painter, with a lush, full-color palette at his disposal. It's nice to see these works where he flexed his black-and-white, brush-and-pen muscles. His technical mastery of traditional drawing methods is on full display. And I can't disagree with the sword-and-sorcery content either. Maroto shows a great deal of restraint when it comes to letting his drawings breathe. No composition is overcrowded. He gives us enough information we need in certain areas, then drills down with detail in other, focused parts. It makes looking at these pieces a pleasure.
