I'm Jessica Riccardi, an illustrator, animator and graphic designer. I'm from San Marino, the oldest republic in the world. My artistic training began at the Scuola del Libro an Art Institute in Urbino, where I chose a specialization in Animation Cinema. In 2013, I graduated with my bachelors from the Academy of Fine Arts in Bologna. On my third year of studies I attended one semester at the German university HAVE, in Hamburg. After experiencing various approaches to design, I decided to obtain my master’s degree in graphic design and illustration at the ISIA in Urbino. Over the years, I have acquired solid technical skills in the field of graphic design, illustration and animation.

Points of view

Points of view is born from a very special friendship that I had for a few years with an autistic boy, Simone. I used to spend time with him, drawing together, because that was a favourite hobby for both of us. When Simone was drawing, he completely isolated himself from the outside world. It seemed as if he was sealed in a glass jar and nothing could distract him. He lives in a place that only he knows and could sometimes become fearful and hostile. Simone has guided me in the understanding of his drawings and I realized that for him, the rabbit has four ears, the six-legged cow and is spotted and the octopus is a fish with the tentacles.
The drawings show what he sees in his world. In the project, I decided to recreated his animals with a clean sign, making them readable for everybody.
