I'm an italian guy with the passion of drawing manga and anime, and a freelance illustrator who loves to share the beauty of imagination.
My childhood was enterely made of gaming, art and problems: I infact grew up with Dragon Ball, Pokémon, Playstation and lots of sketches.
I started making "comics" when I was around age 7 because a friend got me into it, reproducing things from anime aired on TV. From a simple way to waste time it developed into a hobby and then it became a priority, until I decided that would be what I want to do in my life. School was a complete failure, all the subjects I was good at were english (and music), and guess why?
Because I like it.
Never needed to study and on a scale of 1 to 10, my grades were around 8. Things like history, math, geography, science... not a chance. Studying didn't work because I have some memory problems and not being interested in the topic surely doesn't help. Due to family problems I was forced to leave at 15, but it doesn't matter: they couldn't help me anyway focusing on my target. I've been through a lot of frustration; Many people tried to stop me, many told me my goal would be "nearly impossible" to achieve, that I would've ended up homeless and a lot more attempted to redirect me to follow their boring, pathetic and submissive ideals. However, I never gave up and kept going aganist all of them. I'm way too stubborn to follow the crowds. Even when friends neglected me, I kept crawling without turning back, and today I'm here, getting closer step by step to my life's dreams. Internet is a fantastic world that provides lots of opportunities and everyone should believe in their dreams.
I know it sounds like something they say in movies, but believe it or not, it's true. If people on YouTube can become popular and rich making stupid videos of shitty content, then you can do way better than that.
