Smoothly morphing his skill and experience, artist Gil Formosa shape-shifts from animation to comics, cartoon to realistic, illustration to art direction.

Gil entered the world of comics in 1974 at the Dargaud studios as the assistant of Morris. In 1977, he created four short stories for Pilote. He also began the heroic fantasy series Légendes du Chevalier Cargal with scripts by Daniel Pecqueur, in 1982. The series ran until 1989, and afterwards he went to work in the advertising and animation fields. He did several commissions for Glénat (two albums of Tex Avery), Marvel (a Conan cover) and Semic (several covers and illustrations). With writer Jean-Marc Lofficier, he began the Robur series (featuring a character created by Jules Verne) at Albin Michel in 2003. He produced painted covers for a variety of French and American science fiction, comic book, and game publishers. Gil has also created several film posters (including one for Richard Donner's Ladyhawke) and was involved in major advertising campaigns.

His new graphic novel series is scheduled for June 2006 release by French publisher Dargaud.

Piece of my essence, accept my sorry.
Some people, right? We’ll fold you into sparrows, help you disappear—I’m so glad we found you alive

In this episode of the Strange Horizons podcast, editor Ciro Faienza presents the poetry of the 24 January issue.
Hope without action behind it is only a recipe for deeper heartache.
I love flash fiction for a lot of reasons. There’s the instant gratification of reading a complete work of fiction in just a few minutes. And there’s the way flash lends itself to playful, inventive experimentation with form, prose, style, voice, and subject. I also love the way a flash story can be honed and sharpened as everything extraneous is eliminated, and the way it can capture and convey the essence of something—an emotion, a world, a situation, a possibility, an idea, even a joke!—in brilliant brevity.
