Maurizio Di Bona was born on december 1, 1971 in Napoli, Italy. What he does is what he learnt by himself in years: watching toons and anime on TV when he was a child, then practicing no stop at home as anywhere with scribbles of robots, superheroes, rockstars and with caricatures of friends and teachers at school during boring lessons.
Maurizio 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.
Dalle scuole elementari all'università, anche per evadere dalla noia di certe lezioni, scarabocchiava su banchi, sedie e dietro le lavagne:
robot, supereroi, donnine, rockstar e caricature di professori.
