Evan DeCiren was born and raised in the Italian-speaking region of Switzerland in the humble family of a superbike mechanic. Naturally, he spent a lot of time in the camper of his father team Honda HRC during various competitions across Europe. Evan has developed a great affinity for comic art and since he was a kid, he wanted to be a designer. And succeeded in a spectacular manner.
“I was always into comics – starting with the classic “Mickey Mouse” to the “Japanese Manga”. In ’96 when we went with the whole family to spend a month of our summer vacation being guests to a friend of my father who was Honda FCC engineer. The Japanese culture from here on will become an inspiration in my personal growth”, remembers Evan.
His story is also interesting because he has both mechanical and illustrator degrees. Think of him as the guy capable for both fixing and drawing vehicles. Initially, his comics` studies were influenced by the Japan manga comic style but latter he found inspiration in the design works of Mignola, Miller and Risso. They had helped Evan to form his unique and distinctive style.
