Hanging out with Gino
Historicus Forma Artist Q&AThe Historicus Forma (HFModeling.com) Artist Q&A is a monthly feature. It’s an interview with artists of the historical figure modelling world. These artists may include sculptors and painters; commercial and private modellers; well-known and lesser-known artists. Whoever they may be, the artists featured in Historicus Forma’s Artist Q&A are highly respected members of our global community; people who have greatly influenced our world in their own way. As we honour these artists with this humble Q&A and photo feature, they honour us by sharing a piece of their world.
This month we head over to Europe, as we hang out with Gino Poppe, from Oost-Vlaaderen, Belgium.
I was born the 6th of May 1971, which makes me 35 years old (although people say I have the looks of a 20 year!). I’ve been happily married since 1993 and without kids. We do have two dogs which we cherish as if it were our children. Because of my illness (CVS) I'm unable to have a job. I do paint figures on commission, write an article for a magazine from time to time and when I have the strength I help a bit in our little figure model shop. I would take this opportunity to thank Rita, my wife, not only for being so patient with me and taking good care, but also for supporting me in the hobby all these years since we've met. When I'm not painting I like to play games on my PS2 or PSP, read comics, listen to horror rap. I'm also addicted to getting tattooed.
