About the Artist
I am an artist who lives in Boston. I like drawing and painting things on paper, I like history, and I like comics. Machiavelli is a historically accurate graphic novel; hand drawn, hand painted and set in Renaissance Florence.
Niccolò Machiavelli, a mid-level diplomat in the fifteenth-century city of Florence, was, ironically, not adept at the office politics of city government. On the contrary, he served his city with distinction and it was only after a regime change forced him out of office, that he retired to his farm and wrote the political treatises for which he is widely known, The Prince and The Discourses. Machiavelli, a graphic novel based on the life of Niccolò Machiavelli, focuses on the disparity between the widely held perception of Machiavelli as an evil opportunist and the actual story of his life. The book first ran as a webcomic from 2010-2014, then was published following a successful Kickstarter campaign. It is now available as an e-book and a limited edition print volume.
Buying the Book
Machiavelli is available as an ebook on Comixology. I have a limited number of copies from the original printing. You can order one on the Buy the Book page. For a sample, you can read the prologue here.
