Overview

I am passionate about children books and character design.
I know how important is a good working flow between author/illustrator to create a great product.

Some of the projects I enjoyed the most :

- As an Illustrator for "Who's my Neighbor?" (Flyaway Books ). I loved the whole process of creating and designing the characters, sketching the storyline and illustrating the whole book.

- As a graphic designer and illustrator for King Games ( Candy Crush, Bubble Witch and Pet Rescue). I worked with a team and I learned how important is to sync with colleagues to deliver the assets on time.

-As an illustrator and writer for a new upcoming book "Babbbit and Joan". This was my favorite project, not only because it is my first book as an author and Illustrator but also because the work flow with the art director and editor was super easy. I enjoyed designing the characters, illustrating the scenery, creating the content and finally making a great book cover.
