Where Does Ariel Olivetti Get Those Wonderful Toys?

Posted by August 3, 2018 Comment

Two years ago, we ran a piece on Ariel Olivetti swiping designs from Warhammer 40K vehicle designs for Venom: Spaceknight.


Comparing this artwork…

Venom - Space Knight (2015-) 006-004

To these designs…


With this Tau symbol…

Venom - Space Knight (2015-) 006-005

Popping up in both.


Well, in this week’s Death Of The Inhuman #2, he appears to have gone back to the well. With the invading Kree fleet…

Again, looking rather familiar.

And again laying it on thick with that Tau symbol.

The answer to the question then, where does Ariel Olivetti get those wonderful toys? Games Workshop.

Attilan died screaming without its king. Now Black Bolt sets out for vengeance against the Kree – and leads the last of his people to their deaths. For the Kree have a weapon of their own…one that will teach the Silent King what it truly means to be voiceless. The massacre continues as Donny Cates and Ariel Olivetti bring the Inhumans to their lowest point in history.

In Swipe File we present two or more images that resemble each other to some degree. They may be homages, parodies, ironic appropriations, coincidences or works of the lightbox. We trust you, the reader, to make that judgment yourself? If you are unable to do so, please return your eyes to their maker before any further damage is done. The Swipe File doesn’t judge, it’s interested more in the process of creation, how work influences other work, how new work comes from old, and sometimes how the same ideas emerge simultaneously as if their time has just come. The Swipe File was named after the advertising industry habit where writers and artist collect images and lines they admire to inspire them in their work. It was swiped from the Comic Journal who originally ran this column, as well as the now defunct Swipe Of The Week website.
