Where were you born? Where did you grow up?
I was born and raised near Catania, in Italy.
How about your schooling?
Had you gone under any art training? I graduated in medicine and specialized in radiology. I attended many courses and workshops in visual art and comics but never did a REAL art school... I learned so much with people who work with art and comics, and trading informations with’em.
How long have you been working professionally in comics?
I work professionally in comics since 2015.
What things — both in art and otherwise — have you worked on, besides comics? Are comics a full-time gig for you or part-time?
I worked as a radiologist for 6 years. Initially comics were only a part time but in the last two years they became a more serious work.
Talk about how you broke into the business –was it easy? Hard? Ups? Downs ? Any interesting anecdotes? When you held your first published work in your hands, how did you feel?
Break into the business is really hard. I think I really did not have it yet. But I think also that it is an achievement that rewards hard work and seriousness. And read your name on a published comic is and indescribable emotion.
How did you settle on the style(s) you’re currently using? If you have multiple styles how did you develop them?
I believe I’ve reached the style that I got today, thanks to every influences that I got along my life, beginning from the great artists of the past s Jack Kirby or Alex Raymond to actual giants like John Romita jr or Mike Deodato jr.
How would you describe your work space? Is it part of your home, or do you go “to the studio”?
For most of the time I work in a small study created inside my house with the television on the background. Sometimes I take my cintiq companion and go to draw in a bar or on the lawn in the spring, just to feel how life outside is.
What job are you the proudest of?
The next one.
What are you currently drawing? Comments on that project?
Cinderella serial killer princess. A totally crazy mini for Zenescope.
What projects do you hope to work on in the future?
I hope to work for major publishers and writers sometimes in my life.
What is the interest in comics where you live? Do friends and neighbors know you draw comics for a living? How do they react?
Many of my friends are comic readers and they are very curious about this work.
What’s one thing you’ll always find in your refrigerator?
What’s your favorite food?
Pasta alla norma.
I like movies and TV series in general.
