Biography

Illustrator-Concept Artist with more than 16 years of experience in advertising, publishing and, above all, videogames.
During this time I have worked on projects of very different nature and style: from "hardcore" realistic style(Castlevania: Mirror of Fate) to other casual cartoon style (World Chef, Dragon City, etc...). An artist of great flexibility and adaptability.
I have great technical and artistic skills that allow me to successfully perform all the tasks of an experienced senior artist: very good knowledge of colour and lighting, sense of composition, experience in photography, in-depth knowledge of Photoshop and a good level of Blender.
