Mario Zucca's Profile Photo

Portraits, caricatures, editorial, maps, patterns, animation – because of his versatile talents Mario Zucca works on all manner of projects. However, if there’s one thing this Philadelphia artist excels at it’s creating massively detailed environments where hundreds of different characters are all doing different things. You’ll stare and stare at one of his images, marvelling at the sheer amount of activity.
Vastly experienced, Mario works for major publishers, broadcasters, agencies, corporations and even sports leagues around the world. He’s inspired by diversity, and characters of different ages, ethnicities, socio-economic groups, fashions and hairstyles all live together in his work, and that variety carries on into the architecture, machinery and environments he draws. He has a BFA in Graphic Design from the Tyler School of Art, and an MFA in Illustration from the University of Hartford.

Approach

Digital, traditional – Mario takes the best from both worlds in his creative process. Sketching starts off digitally, where he can edit, scale and quickly combine elements to form his composition. Transferring to Bristol board, he fills out the image using brushes and pens. Finally, the inked artwork is scanned in for colour retouching.

Styles

Mario works in a diverse range of mainly comic-inspired styles – some graphic, and some more nuanced. His motto is ‘more is more’ and there’s a lot in every image.

Client list

Mario’s clients include Crayola, Ebony, ESPN Magazine, Hemispheres, The Hollywood Reporter, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Klutz, Maxim, The NFL, PNC Bank, The Wall Street Journal and more.
