I am pleased Franco Saudelli agreed to be introduced on this page. For the BDSM magazine that I edited during 12 years, he was so kind to allow me an interview. Here is an extract :
How did you start making comics?
I started as an assistant to an older artist. I've learned a lot from him after which I could start my first professional work.
Which drawing techniques you usually use, and why?
I draw with pencil and add the shadows in pencil. The coloring I do with Photoshop. That is the technique I use preferably for the art work on my website. It's the quickest way to add color and you know ... people do love color.
Are you full-time professionally creating art?
Yes. Drawing is my hobby and it is also my professional activity. It is my passion ... I'm a lucky guy. I draw comics for the Italian publisher Bonelli : a comic series called "Dylan Dog", a fantasy-thriller-horror comic that is very successful in Italy. And I create bondage illustrations because bondage is my great love. I am working on bondage art ... since I'm eighteen ...
