I must create a system or be enslaved by another mans;

I will not reason and compare: my business is to create.


(William Blake)

I am a freelance artist, always open for interesting new clients. I work in the field of illustration, graphic design/layout, comics/graphic novels, cross media art and video editing, directing and 2D animations. For some time I have been interested in paranormal phenomena, alternative interpretations of reality and in developing  utopian ways for the challenges we'll have to face in this millennium.

Join the UTOPÆON future project!
