My name is Claudia, or Atomica.
I'm a freelance illustrator and cartoonist based in Italy.
I graduated in production design at Academy of Fine Arts in Perugia.
In 2009 I employed as stop-motion animator and production designer at Studio Yusaki in Milan and started working as freelance illustrator too.
I mainly work on middle grade/young adult books and comics for Italian, French and English publishers.
For Il Castoro I illustrated the book series Nazar Malik by Olivia Corio, translated in five languages, and the graphic novel Clara e le Ombre by Andrea Fontana, which won the Prix Des Lecteurs Du Var in France and the Living Book Award in Catalonia.
I've always written my own stories and recently started my journey as an author. My first project for adults is Atomi, a self-produced webcomic, which has been nominated for Premio Bartoli 2023 at Arf! Festival in Rome.
I'm represented in UK and USA by NB Illustration Agency.
