Beppe Giacobbe illustrator

Beppe Giacobbe graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Milan and then continued his studies in New York at the School of Visual Arts. Although eventually returning to Milan, Beppe’s palette reflects the lights of his beloved homeland of Sicily.

Beppe’s work is regularly winning awards in all the major U.S. and Italian annuals. Beppe is especially pleased that his work has been included in United Airlines’ illustrated campaigns; his imagery has regularly been on Travelsmith catalog covers; and his award winning graphic author portraits are covers for Rizzoli’s classics.

Beppe also loves illustrating children’s books, like “Clang! Clang! Beep! Beep!” which was published by Simon & Schuster. The first monograph on his work, “Visionary Dictionary” a collection of over 250 illustrations, subdivided into key topics, was published by Lazy Dog Press in 2013.

Aside from illustrating, Beppe enjoyed 12 years of teaching at the European Institute of Design and always makes time for sculpting from knick-knacks and pieces of wood he finds along his walks.
