Simone Bianchi is an Italian illustrator, painter and graphic designer, best known in Italy for his work on TV commercials, music videos and CD covers. His work is distinguished by a dramatic use of ink wash, a non-traditional technique by mainstream American standards. In Astonishing X-Men #25, Simone Bianchi and debuting writer Warren Ellis presented a fresh take on the iconic characters. The new series established the X-Men as investigators and protectors of the city of San Francisco. Bianchiâ€™s moody and stylish artwork adds a grandeur and elegance to the story. Astonishing X-Men #25 was published in July 2008. This cover painting by Simone Bianchi features the entire team of Cyclops, Emma Frost, Beast, Wolverine, Armor and Storm. This artwork was created in a limited edition as a gicleÃ© print with archival inks on premium canvas and paper. Each piece of the edition has been numbered and is signed by Simone Bianchi. This image is also available on paper.

Sometimes described as "digital lithographs", giclees are created using extremely sophisticated computer equipment to create a reproduction virtually indistinguishable from the original.
Most giclees start with an original painting or illustration in oil, watercolour, or charcoal. The original work is scanned and colour corrected under the supervision of the artist before being printed with a extremely high resolution giclee printer. From the French term for "spray of ink", giclee printers lay down millions of microscopic ink droplets with such precision that the images, colours, and subtle nuances of the original piece are reproduced with breathtaking accuracy and beauty.
Giclees are created on high quality acid-free rag paper or on canvas, and are generally done in limited editions of no more than 750 pieces. They are often signed by the artist.
Limited edition giclees are a beautiful addition to any home and any art collection.
