My name is Rael Pastorino, and I am currently based in London.
My entire education and training have always been related to creativity and Arts: from my high school, where I have learnt the bases of drawing, painting, sculpture, china drawing, and technical drawing, to my years at Accademia Delle Belle Arti (Florence ,Italy) where I focused and specialised on painting.
While studying I have cultivated and developed a deep passion and a taste for comic books and cartoons.
For years I have analysed and collected comics of all genres : Superheroes, 70/80' European comics, manga and anime internalizing, copying, developing a personal style.
I am currently writing the script, layouts and designs for a comic/cartoon related to a group of electronic music and bringing on a collaboration with Ted Wilkes, an English screenplay writer. The on-going project "Sundown: first light"is a steampunk\fantasy-western comic book and attached you will find the first 7 panels+cover .
Also I am carry on a collaboration with the production of the promotional prequel comic of the soon to come english movie The Fitzroy, a steampunk style comedy.
In addition to this I have created several stories, designed several characters and I have many ideas and projects, but I have total respect for original layout, and speed and creativity in the production are my keywords.
