About me

Give me pencil and paper, or a digital pen and a Wacom tablet, and I’m a happy man. So whatever job involves drawing, I will throw myself into it with a lot of passion. I was born and raised in Italy. After an MA in Architecture, I moved to London where I worked for years on 3D stuff, like furniture and products. But my childhood love for comic books led me to a new career as illustrator when I started my first series of Gus & Waldo books. The natural step after that was animation. So here is a few things I do nowadays: - comic books and cartoons - creation of graphic art for books, editorials, advertising, album covers etc - production of animation and graphic packages for TV and web, from title sequences to adverts and short films
