Luca discovered comics and fell in love with the art of the Kubert Family (among others) when he was 9 years old and decided he wanted to do comic books for a living straight away. He never looked back once and has been drawing ever since!
Now, much to his mother’s dismay (!), he is a full-time comic book artist based between London, Rome and Rio de Janeiro.
After a pretty useless – according to Luca – Master’s Degree in Illustration from the Camberwell College of Arts (part of the University of the Arts, London), and A LOT of time alone locked in his room drawing, he got his first few comic jobs in the Irish scene, of all places, with the 3-issues mini ‘Glimmer Man‘ for Atomic Diner and the O’Brien OGN Queen of Storms.
Soon after, a life changing encounter with Marvel artist Ed McGuinness and editor Nick Lowe brought him his first Marvel assignment, the ‘Spider-Man Special 2015‘, followed by a year-and-half-long stint on ‘Secret Wars Journal #1‘, the ‘Secret Wars: Red Skull‘ mini series, and the ‘Black Knight‘ series which closed with issue #5.
Luca is currently drawing the ‘Sons Of Anarchy: Redwood Original‘ prequel comic series for BOOM! Studios.
