ITALIAN COMIC ARTIST - www.pastrovicchio.it

Nationality: Italian

Education and training
1989 Diploma as Art Teacher at the Art Institute “Nordio” in Trieste, architecture and design section.
1993 First training at the Disney Accademy in Milan, course in drawing certificated by Giovan Battista Carpi, famous italian artist (laurea at honorem in comic art) and the famous american artist Carl Barks.
1995 I’ve been invitated in Paris to partecipate in a full immersion course of animation, organized by Walt Disney Co.

Professional experience

1994 I began the cooperation with Walt Disney Co. Italia, starting to draw merchandising / advertising projects, followed from 1995 by drawing for the following publications:

- Topolino (Mickey Mouse stories)
- Grandi Classici (Covers)
- Paperinik (drawings, ink and covers)
- Giovani Marmotte (drawings, ink and covers)
- Minni & Co. (drawings, ink and covers)

From 1997 to 2005 I consider the “PK, The new adventures” one of my best cooperation for Walt Disney Co. since I have drawed almost 1/5 of the total stories published. This experience gave me the opportunity to use my favorite style of drawings, superheroe carachters but in a disney context.

2006 I am still cooperating with Disney Co. Italia, drawings for new projects.
