my name is Antonio, I was born in Siracusa in 1978.
When I was a child, I spent nearly every weekend at the cinemas with my father (thank you daddy for it) and, in that magic place, I began dreaming and I started to develop my imagination and my passion for movies, for animation movies and, of course, for drawing:
the very first inspiring tool to make my dreams come true!
Today I can say that I’m a lucky man because drawing is my job: comics, video and advertising storyboards, illustrations and animation. I have been working for many years and I still work with several Italian and international publishing houses such as Image, IDW, Dreamworks, Hasbro, DeAgostini, Mondadori, Piemme, Battello a vapore, Clementoni and many others…
Moreover, as a teacher, I have been doing my best for more than twenty years to transfer my experience to all those students that have their heart full of dreams, like me.
I’m passionate about 2d drawing as much as 3d one; I just want them to bring me back in time, to those years when I was going, hand in hand with my father, in that dark and magic place where a screen was caressing my thoughts. 😊
