Claudio Sciarrone

Claudio Sciarrone began working for Mickey Mouse not even twenty years old in the early nineties.

Outside of Disney he has collaborated as an illustrator on several television programs, such as Il mercante in fiera di Italia 1 and Delitti Rock by Rai Due, as well as some Disney Channel formats.

Since 2012 he has created the characters of the Ugly Duckling, pin up ducks protagonists of prints, illustrations and calendars. He is also the character creator and co-creator of the animated television series Le straordinarie avventure di Jules Verne for Lux-Vide and Rai Due.

In recent years he has designed for Mickey Mouse stories such as Topolino e le vacanze in fuga, on texts by Marco Bosco, the parody Don Pipotte with Fausto Vitaliano and the stories Gli argini del tempo, Cronaca di un ritorno and Droidi belonging to the relaunch of PK.

As a complete author he has published in the weekly the appreciated Red Leaves, of which a second season is coming, and Fast Track Mickey.
