Hi Everybody! I want to take this opportunity to tell something about my journey on :devart: and I want to thank everybody of the DA crew for their work and for this wonderful idea on the 14th birthday of the site.

I joined :devart: in September 2006 after a year of lingering at the door, as a logged out guest, peeping through the amazing art displayed in the homepage. I was introduced to this site by a dear friend of mine, who sadly passed away in 2009 and for that reason, somehow, DA has now a bigger importance to me. However, away from the sad things, in 2005/06 I wasn't drawing anymore, I lost all the passion and confidence in myself and my dream to be able to draw comics was totally faded. Until I got in touch with DA and my artistic flame, after a spark, started to burn again with desire. When I joined the community
that's what I was--------->Math lessons... by tZuB
A stupid doodle made during a boring lesson, a total letdown.
But here I discovered and got in touch with amazing comic books artists, I then discovered professional photographers (read:beautiful things and references ;P ), and other kinds of artists who gave me the fuel to go on.
Life isn't always as you expect and I'm a little bit ashamed of myself to say that I'm still not a comics pro right now and I don't know if I'll ever be, anyway I can see my growth: from here math B lessons... by tZuB I started to train, I attended a comic books professional school, I helped organize the 24H Comics Day since 2009 in Rovigo(the only officially registered event for Italy these past years), 3 comic books fairs (or comicons if you like, even though they were quite small) and got involved, as a colorist, in the production of a special issue of DIABOLIK-a famous Italian comic book- related to one of the comicons I mentioned above.
PI Sketch Basilico colore2014 by tZuB
(here's a sketch I did on a paper towel to promote RovigoComics, one of the comicons I organized in Rovigo, IT. I then colored digitally)
Right Now I don't have much time to draw and I spend very little time on DA, but I'm not giving up!! Until my Moleskines will be with me I'll always find an excuse to keep creating, one way or another! And thanks again to :devart: for getting me in touch with artists I love, for the opportunity to reach people who eventually asked me for commissions, and in general for fueling my world! Happy birthday Have your cake and eat it too :devart: Have your cake and eat it too !!!

Spidey Post It by tZuB "A post-it? really?" - As you maybe see, coloring is one of my weakest points since ever
:( . I have to thank my teachers @ Scuola Comics for the huge amount of things I learned about digital coloring. And then I have to thank DA because I had the opportunity to "steal" something from the pros I love and learn a lot more.
