My name is Carlos Dattoli, I’m a freelance Illustrator and concept artist, I have been working for 4 years now, making art for licenses such as Saban/Hasbro, Marvel, Playstation, Heavy Metal, and Fox. I started painting since I was a kid and it has been my biggest passion since then.
2-Did you read comic books when you were a kid? Which books did you like?
I actually didn’t read comic books as a kid, I only saw them for their art which was really impressive for me, but I remember having some comic books of “Spawn”, and a comic I remember very well is the ”Death of Superman”.
3-Which superhero has had the biggest influence on you and how did he/she affect your life?
I have many: Spiderman, Batman, Ninja Turtles and Goku! But I have to say that Power Rangers were the ones that changed my life, since childhood I’ve always loved them. Moreover they opened doors to my professional career in so many ways, and for that I'm very thankful. I have been working with them on many projects and I hope I will be involved in many more since I have a big passion for the characters.
4-What do you do to recharge your creative batteries?
I like to watch movies, read books, play video games, and travel for a while.
5-What has been the most rewarding project in your work – in or out of comics – and why?
I don't think I have a particular one. But I have to say, being involved in all of the projects regarding Power Rangers, from posters, video games, TV shows to statue design has been rewarding. I loved being part of it all!
6-If you could choose a superpower, what would it be?
Good question! I think I will go for super strength!
