Q1: When did you start making art?
Well, I can say with certainty is that since I was a child I was sure of my way. I remember that as I watched the cartoons of Captain Harlock or Mazinger Z, I knew I wanted to draw, and in fact it can be said that since I was in elementary school that I started.
Q2: What does inspire you?
Everything inspires me, even the most stupid or insignificant.
However, mostly I draw inspiration from mythology, especially that of Greek and Norse.
Q3: What are your techniques?
Q4: What is the main idea or feeling behind your works?
It always depends on what I’m drawing, I often use music to help “change” my mood.
If I have a disturbing scene I put on some music that puts me in awe and a state of anxiety.
If I have to draw a scene of heroes or dragons put on something epic that I instill courage and adrenaline.
Q5: What is the main color of your art and why?
More than a main color, I decided I am a lover of the shadows, strong contrasts, always aiming (sometimes too much) to the atmosphere gloomy and heavy.
Q6: What would you Improve about your work and why?
The technique obviously: the technique is everything and you never stop learning and, above all, one should never stop learning.

My hope is to move to Canada to work for Ubisoft and / or Bioware
