itaMaurizio Di Bona, noto sul web come The Hand è nato a Napoli il 1 dicembre del 1971. Quello che fa lo ha imparato da autodidatta, rubando con gli occhi dai tanti cartoni visti in tv e dalle tavole dei grandi del fumetto. Ha vissuto e si è arricchito di esperienze nelle web agency di mezza Italia e come freelance in Germania, Irlanda e Polonia.
Quando non disegna va a correre.
Maurizio Di Bona was born on december 1, 1971 in Napoli. What he does is what he learnt by himself in years: "stealing" with eyes from toons and anime of masters of comics and animated cartoon. He lived in Italy, Germany, Ireland and Poland, joining different experiences in web agencies as web designer/cartoonist.
When he is not drawing he is running.
