About

Dublin 2018

I was born in Naples 1986, I’m freelancer illustrator and graphic novelist based in Bologna. I studied illustration and comics at the Fine Art Academy and at EnsAD in Paris. I love travel a lot for comics festival and also only for fun (I visited New York, Dublin, Toronto, Berlin). In the morning I want for first thing a big coffee espresso and make a gym to gave me wake up. I like to communicate what I do and what I love. In the end of 2018 I started a youtube channel where I talk about everythings about my work and how I make it. Sometimes I also invite guests with dialogue on the craft and the life of the cartoonist. Sometimes I make classes in comics and lectures.
