I make your ideas unforgettable

I love to inspire people and make pixels shine

I explored many fields in graphic and design.
I graduated at Istituto Statale d'Arte of Urbino and specialized in 3D Animation.

I worked for RAI and Mediaset in the field of 3D special effects and I was member of the Adobe Guru for the digital video area. I gave courses on comics and digital painting, I worked on graphic design, web applications and multimedia.

I started to freelance in 2011, published the comic series "Niki Batsprite" (10 full color books, ongoing) and specialized in comics and illustrations. I teach comics and manga and cooperates in various projects: from movies ("Der Urbino Krimi" by Studio Hamburg) to 3D prototyping and printing.

Since 2013, I perform live painting in the Area Performance during the Lucca Comics & Games event.

I was selected among international artists by ArtOrder LLC of Jon Schindehette, former Art Director of Dungeons & Dragons, for the artbooks "Tiny Dragons".

Through my blog "Touched By Art" I offer free advices and resources for indie authors and artists.
