My Bio
Born in dicemder the 21st 1982 in Milan, Italy.
I’ve always been interested in drawing and writing stories since I was a child. My fantasy grew a lot thanks to the Italian "Anime Boom" in the late '80s / early '90s, when hundreds of Japanese cartoons were broadcasted on TV. At the end of the Intermediate School (6th to 8th grade in US), I attended the Liceo Artistico A. Frattini (Art High School), in Varese.
In the summer of 1999 – between the 3rd and the 4th High School year – I saw the light: Comics. A friend of mine suggested me to see some Anime movies, such as Ghost in the Shell and Akira, and the TV series Neon Genesis Evangelion. In those years I started developing my drawing style and writing stories (which are only waiting to be published) I still continue.
In 2001 I got a diploma with good marks, but even before the end of High School I worked on some drawings for school text books, for Italian publishers like Bruno Mondadori and Principato.
In 2002 I met Greta, my kindred spirit, and my life has been pushed forward by a great positive force.
During 2004, I was bogged down in hundreds of ideas and projects, but then I saw the light again: my old passion for dinosaurs came back into me powerfully. During the summer of the same year I met the paleontologist Marco Signore, and we soon became friends and a fantastic work team in my first project, which begun in 2006: the "Dinosaurs" series, which tells the Mesozoic in six graphic novels published in Italy, USA, Japan, France, South Korea and Germany. This big project is finished after more than 4 years of work, and now I'm preparing to go on this difficult road.

Alita

Alita

For an english translation, check out below the dotted line! :) Ok, un journal veloce dal doppio scopo. Primo: far sapere a quelli che ancora bazzicano qua attorno che sì, sono vivo. Non ho abbandonato DA, non ho abbandonato il disegno, non ho abbandonato niente. È il tempo di fare le cose – tipo postare i disegni – che ha abbandonato me! :D Secondo, vorrei spendere due parole due sul film in uscita Alita: Battle Angel, tratto dal manga omonimo (in occidente) di Yukito Kishiro. Il discorso che vorrei fare è più o meno lo stesso che feci due anni fa (mammamia) su Ghost In The Shell, quindi nel caso qualcuno si

Ghost in the Shell

Ghost in the Shell

For an english translation, check out below the dotted line! Il ventunesimo secolo non era ancora iniziato quando vidi la luce, stile Jake Blues. Il mio piccolo mondo cambiò, e decisi che avrei dedicato la mia vita all’invenzione di mondi ed alla narrazione di questi mondi. La luce che vidi era fatta di due cose: la serie TV Neon Genesis Evangelion (che iniziava allora la sua pubblicazione in italiano) ed il film Ghost in the Shell. L’opera di Mamoru Oshii del 1995 è straordinariamente potente. Dal punto di vista visivo si tratta di una pietra miliare del cyberpunk: figlia di Blade Runner, ne evolse l’ambientazi

THE SHALLOWS - A REVIEW

THE SHALLOWS - A REVIEW

For an english translation, check out below the dotted line! The Shallows – distribuito in Italia come “Paradise Beach” – ovvero: la mia classica recensione fuori tempo massimo. In realtà avrei voluto intitolare questo pezzo “Dite che riuscirò, prima o poi, a vedere su schermo uno squalo che si comporta da squalo?”, ma non ci stava, mannaggia. Comunque. La storia del film è proprio semplice: una studentessa di medicina (interpretata da Blake Lively, della quale ignoravo l’esistenza, e un po’ mi spiace) perde la madre per colpa del cancro e, per ricordarla/omaggiarla/far inizi

Kronosaurus82 so, how's life been for you here on Deviantart?
19simonsHobbyist Artist
No problem 😁

I just didn't think you'd still be active here on deviant art

So, how are you today?

I rarely post devs because I rarely have time to do so, but I never quit DeviantART, and never will. :)
I'm waiting for publication of the last book I worked on to post here a few works. I don't know when it's going to be, because covid-19 pandemic slowed everything down a lot.
