Advocate Art would like to introduce you to Christian Cornia, he is one or our newest artists here at Advocate. We think his characters are fun and energetic and perfect for young fiction books. Have a look at more of Christian’s work in his portfolio on the Advocate website or read on to learn more about the artist.
I was born in Modena [Italy] in late 1975. Now I live in Vignola, the city of cherries, with Otto, my eight kg cat (Otto in Italian means eight).
When I was 4 years old, looking at a comic book, I decided that I would be a comic illustrator, and not an astronaut or a fireman like other children. I have drawn for as long as I can remember and have always created my own comics for my friends.
I’m fascinated by the cartoon style that has exploded in recent years and looking on internet for new inspiration sources is part of my daily routine. I think it’s important to continue to study every day to improve my style.
I work digitally but I’ll remain a secret lover of the pencil and I don’t move without a sketchbook in my bag for drawing everything that I see and think.
I don’t like to call myself as an artist, I prefer labelling myself as a craftsman, a producer of stories and images.
