Dante's "Divine Comedy"

A five year project which involved adapting the text of the entire "Divine Comedy" into contemporary slang and setting the action in contemporary urban America. The project resulted in three, limited edition books, Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso. Each book contained more than 60 original lithographs and was published by Trillium Press in San Francisco.

The three books were eventually published in softcover by Chronicle Books:
"Dante's Inferno"
"Dante's Purgatorio"
"Dante's Paradiso"

A series of paintings was completed for each canticle as well.

A feature film adaptation of "Dante's Inferno" was completed in 2007 and was featured at film festivals across the country and in Europe to acclaim.
