EXTREMELY RARE, original sketch: Tribute to Corto Maltese.
1st draft of an illustration as a tribute to Corto Maltese.
This sketch is unique because this version was not chosen by the artist for the final artwork.
(On the back of the sheet, found a sketch start in pencil, closer to the final version).
A4 Format - 21 x 29 cm.

1st draft by the Spanish designer Alfonso AZPIRI who died in August 2017, for a tribute to Hugo Pratt & Corto Maltese.
The sketch was made in pencil and pen. This sketch is unique because this version was not chosen by the artist for the final artwork. On the back, there are also an early sketch of the artist with a version closer to the final one.
The final illustration of the tribute to Corto by Azpiri is visible on this site:
