Hi Giulia, welcome to Dare Clan community! As first question, I would like to ask you to introduce yourself.

Hello! I am an illustrator, but this definition is quite vague because there are many different fields in which you can work in the world of illustration: I create products with my illustrations that I sell in an online store. I create customized drawings and from this year I started illustrating children's books.

The passion for drawing has always been there, since I was very young, but only when I started working after university (I graduated in speech therapy), I begin to believe I could do a job with it. And while I was working as a speech therapist, I enrolled in the Roman School of Comics in Rome. But it was then 4 years before it really became my job.

Your Instagram page is called The_Imaginist. Why did you choose this name?

The name “the imaginist” was really simple to choose: I wanted a name that made you "dream", that made you think of fantasy, creation, imagination. I knew that the imaginers were the "engineers of the imagination", who worked for Walt Disney. And since Uncle Walt, or rather his feature films, are the reason why I started drawing as a child, it seemed like a good choice: I took the part of the engineers and created The_imaginist.

What do you prefer to draw and why?

Absolutely I prefer to draw female figures of all kinds: I love to draw them with sinuous lines, or very round, or fine and linear. With short hair or long and fluttering hair. I think the female body is beautiful, so I never get tired of drawing it.

How did you let people know about your business in the beginning?
