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.


Silenziosi re del vuoto

[Photo credits: NASA] Tutto era cominciato nel gennaio del 1986, quando la prima foto del pianeta Urano fu resa pubblica. Allora lei era solo una bambina, ma l’aspetto alieno di quella palla azzurra l’aveva segnata nel profondo. Inconsciamente, da allora aveva cominciato a guardare il cielo in modo diverso, a fissare la Luna e a…


Gaeda (She Tames the Light)

Lineart done for my project “Vocis Imago”. Gaeda Haelein Emiclar is an Artificer with a gift for crafting lenses with divine properties. She’s one of the main characters of the story; her Warrantor is Altair Kostar.   A short clip of the colouring process:


Altair (He Shields the Frail)

Altair is my character from Vocis Imago, my… let’s say novel, that I first started to put together back in 1998. Of course the story took a totally different direction since then, when it was a fantasy comic called “Spirit’s Shadows”. Altair didn’t even existed, and in his place there was this guy Rhou, who…


Il ruolo dell’autore

For we need stories to survive, to communicate. No impulse, no story, no expression. Pen, be my sword, the sword of the screenplayer, the compass of the director that leads the actors to the top of the mountain. Sono il tipo di persona che si pone tante, tantissime domande. Quando trovo una risposta alle mie…


Announcing HEX: a new comic

Sooo, I need to make an announcement! For the first time in years I’m about to start working on a comic! HEX, this is the working title, will tell the gothic story of a family and its house haunted by two demons. The story was inspired by a dream I had a few days ago; when I…


Asherah – Daemon Inside

My husband is a writer, and he’s got a brand new website ( and he really needs a few custom illustrations of his characters. Asherah is a demon, and she belongs to the universe of Daemon Inside. She’s a sexy lethal warrior, always seen around with her companion Morkhai. Currently, she isn’t present in any…


Tristan & Martin – lineart

Third lineart, third couple. We’re still in the Nova Angeli office of Damascus, and now we’re about to meet the last two characters of our team: Tristan Damgaard, the youngest and newest element who doesn’t really want to be there that much, and Martin McCoy, senior agent with little patience, little tact and a tendence to…


Aglaja & Nikola – lineart

It’s LINEART TIME again!! Yay! Just as the previous portrait of Lars & Gretchen, this illustration is inspired by my novel The World Below (which I’m still writing and I’m fairly behind). I’m planning a set of portraits of the main characters (they’ll be 7 in total, I think) which will hopefully be followed by more…
