Artwork by Francesco Mercuri


FRANCESCO MERCURI is a visual artist from a small city in Florence. He attended the Technical Technological Institute and TheSign Comics & Arts Academy, where he was able to refine both analog and digital artistic techniques. His academic career lasted six years total.

He is increasingly passionate about creating environments and characters in the horror and fantasy styles, and mainly works on commission. Whether it's the cover of books, the concept of characters or creatures, illustrations for video games or for board games, podcasts or social media, he considers himself very lucky to work in this field, which offers him beautiful opportunities every day. He hopes that his illustrations convey the feelings that they convey to him as they come out of his pencil. His work can be found at and on Instagram @cicciomerk_
