I’ve attended “Scuola del Fumetto” (“Comics School”) and CFP Bauer Graphic Course in Milan, during this period I’had discovered and fell in love with the illustration field, that’s why I joined an Editorial Illustration Course at CFP Bauer and Mimaster Illustration course. My first job in this field was as a colourist and inker for Geronimo Stilton Series for Mondadori, and my first important illustration work was for La Repubblica - Italian daily newspaper.
I wake up, do my yoga and eat breakfast before checking emails, I work at home and I organize my day according to the projects I have to follow, always trying to take time out to keep my hand drawing practice.
Best parts are that you organize the work yourself and that It’s a satisfying job as you produce visible artworks that didn’t exist before. The worst part is that if you work alone at home as I do you miss people and the possibility to have a confrontation on creative issues.
Never search for ideas on the internet but look for inspiration in the real world.
It took me time, at the beginning, the comic style influenced me a lot, discovering then a more minimalistic approach through graphic design I followed the right path, developing a style It’s a journey of tuning and perfecting and I’m still on the way.
My tip would have fun, be curious, draw a lot and wherever.
Confidence, improvement and cup of tea, please.
