Articles by Alessia Zuccarello

Concept and visual artist, editor. Always chasing the future. Graphic designer, illustrator and comic artist. Founder of the Valdichiana Media company, I also collaborate with Avatar Web Communication in the role of the art director. As a freelancer, by the name 'Owlet Studio' I work as a comic artist, illustrator, opinionist, know-it-all, aesthetics authority and graphic designer. In my spare time I work, I write, I draw, I love my husband, I care about the dramas of my cats, I gaze at the stars and I study to become a better piano player, composer and singer. I don't do sports.


Lilh Evelies (She Bears the Word)

Lilh is one of the main characters of Vocis Imago/Act of Faith. Originally, she was supposed to be the main character, but at one point I thought the story wasn’t going anywhere and she needed to become someone else entirely. That’s how I turned her into one of the kinds of humans I like the…


A Wide Belt of Space

It’s a bit of a song I’m writing, this clip was recorded with my phone. I’m still learning how to play and sing decently simultaneously. I never felt like I fully belonged to any of the art worlds, because I am not an illustrator, not a comic artist, not a writer, not a photographer, not…


Rebekah Ohksa Veharyla

Rebekah is a very important character of Vocis Imago/Act of Faith. She’s a diplomat and the spokeperson of the Valkayan Light. She’s the Valkayan Voice. She inherited her title from her father, who was killed by a rebel when she was just 13. Despite her young age, she had to take over his role and…


The Valkayan Light

Lineart are something that take me some time to finish. They’re relaxing, but I can’t rush them. I’m also really bad at coloring them, that’s why I seldom do it. I have a complicated relationship with color, it’s just not my best pal. Anyway, The Valkayan Light is a character from my novel Vocis Imago…


Kaiern Avlakaj

Kaiern is not actually a character from Vocis Imago, but from a short side-story (Dreams of Swords, working title) that happens at the same time of Vocis Imago, but somewhere else. He’s a high official of the army, the Captain of Tactics and Swordmaster, and (you can’t see it in this picture) ha has only…


Silent Kings of Void

A loveletter to the Cassini Mission to Saturn Everything began in January 1986, when the first picture of Uranus was released. At that time she was just a child, but seeing that cerulean ball left a deep mark on her.. Since then she had unconsciously started to look at the sky differently, staring at the…


At Dusk

I wrote this song a few years ago, but never recorded it. I’m still not quite satisfied by my vocals because I always record on my worst days, in the morning, maybe on my period… but we have to start somewhere. My enunciation of english words is not the best, I reckon, but I’m bad…


La mia condizione tra arte e fibromialgia

Scrivo questo articolo un po’ per sfogo, un po’ perché spero che possa essere utile a qualcuno. Il mio intento è quello di cercare di spiegare quello che sento e di riflettere sulla condizione di una disegnatrice affetta da sindrome fibromialgica: come si può conciliare il lavoro con il disturbo? Come trovare serenità ed equilibrio?…


Pici all’Aglione

This illustration belongs to a Valdichiana-related project. We need to do merchandise for our magazine and what better start than an appiciatrice? Pici is the typical pasta of Valdichiana, long thick fresh spaghetti usually served with cheese and pepper, aglione sauce (a kind of huuge garlic typical of Valdichiana), duck sauce, chianina beef sauce or…
