Teacher Plus
Comic Book Artist

Giacomo Keison Bevilacqua is an Italian comic book artist. The influence of his grandfather, an artist, and his father, an avid reader and collector of comics, greatly contributed to his love for both. As a young adult, he frequently attended comic fairs and always carried his personal portfolio with him, taking any opportunity he could to showcase his work as an editor, screenwriter, and author.

At the age of 22, he enrolled in the Scuola di fumetto and, while studying there, started working as an illustrator for two famous Italian comic magazines: Lanciostory and Skorpio. In 2008, he launched A Panda Piace, his first fully self-authored and illustrated comic. Looking to branch out, he went back to the basics of drawing, studying everything from anatomy to perspective and color, and has since published graphic novels such as Il suono del mondo a memoria, Attica, and Troppo facile amarti in vacanza. Throughout his career, he's had the opportunity to collaborate with publishing houses like Bao Publishing, Feltrinelli, and Panini.
