World building courtesy of young Italian artist Domenico Russo:
"Tales from Rusty Bay" started as an idea to create a concept in an unusual place: a retirement home. The purpose was to give every old character their own past life, creating an anthology of smaller stories linked to each other.
"Tales from Rusty Bay" is the story of a family destroyed due by the mistakes of a single man. Elias Rottenwood, passes away in misery and loneliness in the decadent Rusty Bay Hotel, a sinister place where the forgotten elders of the world are brought. Only the innocence of two siblings will be able to redeem his name, and to reunite a family that has fallen apart over time.
Domenico Russo is an illustrator specialized in visual development and environment design. He attended the animation course at Nemo Academy in Florence and graduated with top marks in 2017.
