My name is Nazario Graziano, i’m an italian freelance illustrator, art-director, graphic-designer. My world is romantic, ironic, no-conformist. I like to think of it as ’A dive in the past with Gore-Tex lifesaver’.
I take my inspiration from old books, illustrations for kids, sky, snow, rain and rainbows, my little princess Bianca, my wife, my cats, music, old scholl skateboards, old school tattoos, 80′s memories, 50′s sci-fi movies, typography and so much more that happens day by day…
