Personal Profile

Massimo Fenati

Massimo Fenati was born in Genoa, Italy, but has lived in London, UK, since 1995. After an MA in Architecture, he started off his career as an industrial designer.
But his childhood passion for comics and animation never died and resurfaced years later when – after showing to a literary agent a few drawings he made as anniversary presents to his life partner – he got his first book deal for Gus & Waldo’s Book Of Love. The series of books on the gay penguins (which already counts three volumes and a fourth one being published later this year) has become a cult in several countries, from the UK to Australia, from Brazil to Italy, as both gay and straight readers relate themselves to the penguins and their love lives.
On top of the Gus & Waldo brand, Massimo is now working full time on various animation and illustration projects, from commercials to title sequences for TV shows, from children’s books to album covers.
