Lorena Assisi is a freelance illustrator and storyboarder currently based in Rome. She started of with comic-influenced illustrations and now creates stunning fine-art illustrations influenced by her love for folklore and fantasy.

I love work with various techniques,but in particular what i like more is the combination of traditional and digital art.
I always loved the imaginary folklore and all the symbolic way of the past that inspire me.
I specialize in editorial illustration at the international school of comic in Rome.
I usually work for the realization of covers, tattoos and private commissions.
