Tiziana Longo

Illustrator, Catania, IT


Mi chiamo Tiziana, sono nata a Catania nel 1980 e già da bambina il mio gioco preferito era disegnare.
Dopo la laurea accademica ho lavorato come restauratrice. Nel 2010 ho frequentato il primo corso di illustrazione. Ho seguito workshop con importanti illustratori e ho pubblicato i miei primi libri con case editrici siciliane.
Sono affascinata dalle tecniche pittoriche ma prediligo il digitale: io e la mia tavoletta grafica siamo inseparabili.
Quando illustro sono fondamentali per me: cioccolata fondente e la mia musica, soprattutto quella un po’ malinconica ma di grande ispirazione. Quando non illustro, lavoro come colorista digitale e, di tanto in tanto, tengo corsi di disegno e pittura per bambini e adulti.


My name is Tiziana, I was born in Catania in 1980 and since I was a child I loved to draw.
After graduation at the Academy of Fine Arts, I worked as a restorer. In 2010 I attended the first illustration course and then some workshops with well-known illustrators. I published my first books with Sicilian publishers.
I'm fascinated by the illustrative techniques but I prefer digital technique: me and my tablet are inseparable.
When I illustrate, what is necessary for me is: dark chocolate and my music, especially the melancholic one is very inspiring.  
When I don't illustrate, I work as a digital colorist and, sometimes, I hold drawing and painting classes for children and adults.
