Marco Bucci recognized two things at a young age. The first was that he wanted to become a professional artist. The second was that he couldn’t draw. This delayed him for quite some time. He filled that time pursuing other artistic interests such as music and writing. But the urge to draw never left him. At age nineteen he began to study classical drawing, which led him to kindle a love for painting and illustration. He hasn’t looked back since. You can usually find Marco painting outdoors, or illustrating books from his home in Toronto, Canada, where he lives with his fiancée and three cats.
