INSPIRATION, CREATIVITY, ARTWORK and STORYTELLING
Welcome to Equinox Art Studios. My name is Delfino Falciani and this is my portfolio. I'm an illustrator, cartoonist, and sculptor, but I see myself mostly as a storyteller.
A picture says a thousand words and this is the approach I take when drawing. I want to engage you, spark your imagination, and transport you into the new and fantastic worlds I love to create.
I want to present a scene, then have you wonder "What happened before this moment?", "What will happen next?". I'd like you to be drawn in by my characters and ask yourselves who they are and what their life has been like.
I hope you enjoy my art. While exploring these pages, i hope you feel free to lose yourself in a story or two.

Dances in Exile graphic novel
“Dances” is a real passion project. I’ve been working on the stories and characters for at least twenty years off and on. T’Orianna started off as a Dungeons & Dragons character. I wanted to do something different than your elf, human or half orc. So I created a female warrior from another plane/world and set her down in a harsh world where her people come to train and sharpen their survival skills. As we played week after week her backstory started to fill out and I quickly noticed that I had a whole galaxy of material to work with. The more I thought about her and the eL’nathians the more stories started to come until I had a dozen or so spiral notebooks full of stories. For years I did page layouts, rewrote dialogue and added characters to the worlds and races and… well, you get the idea…
Peregrin the Aeronaut
(a Magically Illustrated, Musical Storybook)
In whimsically rhymed verse interspersed with a dozen songs and scores of illustrations, Peregrin the Aeronaut is the first full-length musical novel for children and their parents. Experience the magic of The Wanderlands through the eyes of our newest and youngest Aeronaut, Peregrin!
Klaatahulin, of the House of Obsidian (known to his friends as Klaat’hu) is the last surviving member of the race of Teraans.
Born during the final battle of the Great Teraan Civil War, Klaat’hu’s father, Tepeyollotl, wove an obsidian cocoon and set it adrift among the Skylands of the Mobius Strip. He was found and raised by Tyberius and Melina Proudwater on the skyland of Biblioterra, a place of scholars and librarians.
Now, as an adult, Klaat’hu travels throughout the Mobius Strip in pursuit of knowledge, while rediscovering the stories of his people, and learning to control the abilities he holds sway over rock and stone.
