After his high school graduation as mechanical engineer and some years spent in extemporaneous working experiences, ranging from ship-boy on a cargo to army officer, he finally saw the light and decided to make the most of his downplayed natural gift for drawing and take up a career as an illustrator. Then headed for London where begun attending the Chelsea School of Art illustration evening classes. He loved the school indeed but having in the meantime become a bit allergic to authority decided that working those same evening hours on his own studying art books and illustration annuals, and building himself a portfolio could be a better use of his time.
