Oto and the music
“Oto and the music” is an animated series born from the collaboration between Rai Fiction (the italian’s TV channel) and the Japanese Artist Yusaki Fusako, calls also the “poet of sculpty”.
Oto is a red octopus with a passion for music. He lives in a sea made up of musical notes and has special encounters with great musicians introducing different musical genres to his audience.

For this series I designed the character of the musicians and I paint the scenery. Here some samples:
