Hi there! I'm Simone Massoni an italian visual artist and that awesome haircut was just for a bet.

After starting my career as a children's book illustrator, I moved my interests to be aligned more with visual design and arts. You can find my latest visual explorations in books, magazine, advertising commercials and shows, mainly in US and Europe.

In 2005 I founded my own brand, SketchThisOut®, which I mostly use to spread passion for everything which I find visual stimulating. I'm currently living and working in Florence, Italy.
