Fingerman is our little imaginary friend, represented by two fingers that are his legs. He came alive to have fun and entertain Matteo when toys did not do the trick. Fingerman is hilarious, naturally naive, totally spontaneous and adorable, that is why he is so funny. He is the protagonist of many adventures, comics, and even puppet shows. He eats only Bananas and most of his gadgets are made of Bananas. Despite not being a brave hero, Fingerman never stepped back, never gave up and faces all the situations even if he knows he will get in trouble. Thanks to his long presence and strong character, he definitely became part of our family.
The Brain and the Arm
Matteo (Son): Author + Original Story
Mauro (Father): Illustration + Web Manager
Matteo is a 9-year-old boy with a wild and vivid imagination. Born in Portugal to a Portuguese mother and an Italian father - two advocates of arts and creativity - he spent most of his life in Singapore immersed in artistic activities that became part of his daily bonding with the parents. It stands obvious to even the most casual acquaintance that Matteo has inherited his parents' creative flair and unbridled enthusiasm. Always curious about the world around him, he brings that learning and exploration to his stories, and to his books! He has an extensive collection of imaginary heroes and monsters for stories to come.
Mauro is an architect, urban sketcher, illustrator and musician. Most of all, he is a proud dad and a talented artist who gave shape to his son's dream of creating a book with his own adventure!
Born in Italy, he has lived in Spain and Portugal. He lives now in Singapore with his family, where good bonding moments are spent creating stories and laughing at Fingerman's adventures.
