Hi! I'm Roberto Blefari, I’m an illustrator and I know how to make you smile.



I create lively and straightforward illustrations that make people feel good. I do that, mixing graphics and emotions in a playful visual balance that it works for every project: from children's books to web and apps.

Based in the beautiful city of Turin, Italy, I work with passionate people and clients from all around the World.

Over the past two years, I'm also teaching third-year Illustration students at IED Turin.
