Franco Bruna died yesterday I think. Here's the link to see samples of his drawings.

If You go on scrolling with the right arrow after several vintage and national celebrities, You would find also quite a few well know ones, such as Ayron Senna, Charlie Chaplin, Sharon Stone etc. ... Enjoy.

Yeah, really great and I bet he's really popular especially among the people he's doing because he's fairly straight and makes them look good though in fact they're probably fairly accurate head likenesses. Not into distortion so much. Very nice style.

Thank You, dear D Akey and Robyn.
One of the most interesting consideration is that he was a multiform artist, not a super-specialized one, since he was also among the many important artists we had on Topolino (Mickey Mouse) magazine. Differently from other contries, Disney company let our Mondadori (and the follow on successor partner) create and draw on their own stories with traditional disney characters and even add new characters on that most popular magazine, due to the exceptional capabilities and style of artists and the many great ideas of authors working on it.
