My friend Rebecca recently asked me for a clock featuring an illustration by me, and this gave me a brilliant new product idea! The clock is 20x20 cm, in glossy finished wood. Please private contact me for further informations and pricing :)

happy summer

I HATE Summer and I can't wait for it to end, but this does not mean I can't wish all the best for your holidays. And mine: tomorrow is my last working day :) Although I'm not going anywhere this year, I wish myself to rest enough and recover my energy. All of it. To do this, I think I'm going to repaint my flat in bright colours like these.
Happy Summer holidays!

ad alta voce

Questa è la mia illustrazione per la quattordicesima edizione di Ad Alta Voce, l'iniziativa promossa e organizzata ogni anno da Coop Adriatica che porta la lettura nelle strade e nelle piazze di varie città italiane. Quest'anno, Bologna e Venezia. Per farla ho pasticciato un po' con le matite, il collage e Photoshop e me la sono proprio goduta :) Sarà una gran bella soddisfazione vederla affissa in giro per la città, nei prossimi mesi!

bubble #70

I thought I had posted this months ago, but apparently saved it as a draft only :/ Anyway, I'm doing it now.
It wasn't easy. It was a mining camp. But she made it! It wasn't easy to follow the steps of old italian giants like Mina, Lucio Battisti, Patty Pravo and Gino Paoli, but what came out is absolutely adorable. Her italian pronunciation as well :) We like hearing foreigners speaking italian. It's funny and we appreciate their effort in dealing with our tricky language. Well well done :)

nursery rhymes

Here are my illustrations of two popular english language nursery rhymes. Although they are not that popular in Italy, I know them both since my childhood because they were in my books, so they were fun to work on :)

beatris da bar

Mi piace tanto andare a disegnare al bar. Voi non lo sapete ma, le idee migliori che ho avuto, sono nate proprio sul tavolino di un bar. Quando mi arriva un lavoro, vado a fare gli schizzi al Vanilia. Quando viaggio, mi piace infilarmi nei baretti a caso a disegnare. Sto lì, guardo le persone, mi faccio i fatti loro, ogni tanto qualcuno viene a a farsi i fatti miei, ascolto in sottofondo le loro storie e intanto disegno. Dopo un po' mi sveglio e ho fatto una montagna di roba. Non lo so com'è, ma funziona benissimo. Se non fosse che quasi sempre mi dimentico qualche dettaglio a casa...

portobello!

Come tutte le estati, al Cassero c'è Portobello, il mercatino del lunedì sera al quale spesso partecipo anch'io.  Quest'anno ne ho anche curato l'immagine, uelà!

amici miei

In my family, we have always lived with animals. Lots of animals. A zoo :) There were dozens of dogs, cats, canaries, parrots, bunnies, chickens, fishes, turtles, gooses, ducks and god knows what else. My uncle Massimo is the chief of the zoo and 15 years ago he opened his own pet shop with his wife Patty. Now they finally have a website, and this is my contribution :)
