When I started my collaboration with the Centro Editoriale Imperiese in 2001 I was an artist painter who was fond of art and drawing but did not have any experience in editorial illustration. . Since then I have been studying and attending various courses on illustration, publishing and graphics.
Starting to become more professional, I have been meeting new trends, styles and currents and it has got ever more difficult for me to remain faithful to myself, to say what I want in my own style. The more I have progressed the more I have become thoughtful and demanding .
All my covers since the beginning are now on tumblr , and looking at all of them while doing the posting, I felt a bit of nostalgia of those first works: I did not know anything about editing, photoshop and web resources, but I just did the job! I still love some of them, and I wish I could be as simple and direct as then!
