Early years, primary, secondary, history, stories & fairytales, nature, cartoon & comic, black & white
My name is Mirko, the registrar Franco Filippi and I live in Tuscany (Italy).
I studied at the State Art Institute in Trieste. I work in my studio as a graphic designer and illustrator for different companies. I have made illustrations for the school books, advertising, tourism. I worked with Superintendence for the Archaeological Heritage of Tuscany creating comics, illustrations for games and promotional materials. I am also a painter, cartoonist and I teach visual and cartoon education for children.
In the last few months I've been working on my first children's illustrated album: "Masina".
