Enrico Casarosa was born and raised in Genoa, Italy in the early 70s. After a couple of years at the University of Engineering spent mostly doodling during classes, Enrico found his calling and moved to Milan to attend Illustration courses at the European Institute of Design. In 1994 he moved to the US to pursue studies in animation and illustration. He studied in New York at the School of Visual Arts and at the Fashion Institute of Technology. He, somewhat proudly, never finished a major at any of the colleges he attended.
Enrico started his career in animation in New York City working for several TV Animation studios and projects in different capacities. He then landed a position at Blue Sky Studios, storyboarding for 20th Century Fox’s ICE AGE.
Enrico moved to San Francisco in 2001 where he’s been since working at Pixar Animation Studios as a story artist on movies like Ratatouille, Up and Cars2. In his free time he has drawn comics, made art books and started an international drawing Marathon event: SketchCrawl.
