My Bio

Hello. I'm a person with an unbound love for art, who got out of a scientific career to pursue making stories and drawing.

I've been working as a character designer, comic book artist and comic book writer for a few years now and I'm always looking for new opportunities to bring my weirdness to new projects.

For me art is about pouring one's mind where people can see it, but also about making other people's vision come to life.

Want to talk about hiring me? Want to just get in touch?

Had to take a big long break for mental health reasons and having-a-baby reasons. But I really want to get back to this! I want to start doing wonky sh*t and fanart again! Why am I nervous?

I noticed a lot of people hate adding dialogue to their stories (comics, videogames, etc.) So, since I love dialogue and I have gotten pretty good at it, I decided to do this:

Thanks for giving the professional NRG page a follow Matteo! Hope you are doing well, and hopefully we can work together on something in the future again!

Hi Matteo!

I'm trying to make an anime inspired superhero OC, and I was wondering if you could lend me some advice on how to go about it?

Love your work, btw!
Hi! Sure, we can give it a shot (no guarantees ;) ).

First of all, let's ask ourselves what's the big idea? What's this superhero's deal? What's the first and most awesome thing you'd tell people about them?

Then, let's move on to the "why" and "how" game. Or the logic game... I don't have an actual game for it, lol. Like, why is he like this? How does he dress to give his powers the most effect? Does he like what he does? Does he enjoy having his powers? From the answers to this, we can know a little about how he dresses and behaves.
Well first, I imagine him as a parody of the usual Shounen hero! However, I'm still trying to figure out the powerset!

As far as further details, I thought it could be interesting for him to have a "celebrity status" so to speak!

Other than that, I'm try to figure it out as I go!
Interesting. I'd love to see how it comes along and give you some feedback.
Loved it. Left you a quick comment there.
