This book documents artist Mark Chickinelli's first large scale commissioned painting. "De Semilla A Cigarro" was commissioned exclusively for an up-scale cigar bar in Omaha, Nebraska in the years 1997-1999. Along the way the artist leads you through the creative process step-by-step with everything from artist influences, design concepts, what music he listened to while painting and the kind of cigars he smoke while painting this magnificent picture. Patrons of Cigarro's will tell you that they can look at this picture for hours and you will always find something new.
