Hey! I’m Alessio!

I’M AN ITALIAN ARTIST WHO MOVED TO LONDON 5 YEARS AGO.

I’M FLUENT IN THREE LANGUAGES AND HAVE A GREAT PASSION FOR TRAVELLING AND LEARNING ABOUT NEW CULTURES.

I HAVE A VERY OPEN MIND AND I SEEK CREATIVITY IN EVERYTHING I DO.

I like to look at beautiful things.

My journey in the world of drawing began with a video from the digital artist and YouTuber Gal Shir. His style enchanted me and made me want to pursue illustration as a hobby. To this day, everything I know about drawing is completely self-taught, through a combination of YouTube videos, tutorials, and my own trial and error.

James and Jesse, my iPad Pro and my Apple Pencil, have been my best friends along the way. Something about the feeling of my pencil gliding on the surface of the screen and creating mesmerizing shapes and lines is extremely therapeutic and so much fun!

At first, I found free-hand drawing very daunting, so I started sketching over photographs to ease this process off. Slowly, every photo was turning into something different, and before I knew it, I had a whole catalogue of drawings to share with the world. And that’s what Sktchify is all about.

I like to draw things that I love: my favourite movie characters, artists, TV shows and my friends. Speaking of which, I owe a special thanks to Mattia, Ago and Federico. Without these three fellas, Sktchify wouldn’t have been possible.

I’m still in the process of discovering my own style, so join me on this journey.
