I'm a freelancer professional illustrator and comic artist , European of Italian nationality ( as Samantha Cristoforetti). I work on illustration, portraits, sketches, storyboards, but my best skill is on comic art. I've been working in comics since 2002, for various Italian and US indie publishers. By 2011 I work for the most important italian comic book publisher , Sergio Bonelli Editore. By 2014 I work as main artist on Puppet Master (Action Lab Entertainment). As illustrator, I collaborate with Valor Infinity Studios and with italian publishers as Coyote Press and NarratTiva. Apart from comic art and illustration, my passions are cinema and indie role playing games.
