happy birthday Roberlina ♥

Today is my friend Robi's birthday. She is a very special friend I already told about who lives in Berlin and owns a caravan in the counry side, near the woods, where she goes whenever possible to ride her horse friend Montano with Margot at their side :) We both know that there's a wonderful universe out there and we both often look at the sky, waiting for our friends from outer space. I can't wait to see our faces when it will happen! Obviusly, the today's sketch is dedicated to her ♥

BettyBoop is on air!

Next friday/saturday night at 1.30 a.m. (GMT+1) I will be on the radio!
My Indigo Mix will be spread in the air from the historic bolognese Radio Città del Capo antennas inside Thermos Nights, a brand new broadcast hosted by my friend Max F. You can also listen live to the radio by following this link ;) Enjoy!

a sketch a day...

...keeps the boredom away! Lately, I'm being super-busy in any sort of things so I'm not posting as often as I would. Moreover, my hand needs to be kept in training and my inner child needs to draw. Therefore I decided that I will draw one thing every day :) This is what came out today.

feel good tip #7

Tomorrow is finally autumn :) I couldn't wait for this moment to come, so today my mood is over the moon. To exalt this absolute coolness there's nothing better than jazz: I found this playlist on YouTube and played it all morning while working. Since even advertising seemed enjoyable, I think I'll play it until 6 pm :)

favarama 2

Come promesso, torna Favarama! Anzi, tornerà. Sabato 24 settembre, stessa spiaggia stesso mare - i Giardini Fava - ma con 3 ore di anticipo. Favarama 2, infatti, durerà dalle 16 alle 24. Dalla merenda all'ora delle streghe sarà una festa di disegni, colori, musica, fumetti, banchetti, pennelli, libri, performances dal vivo, parole, spritz, sorrisi, collanine, baracche e burattini.
Come sempre, fino all'ultimissimo minuto ed oltre, le adesioni sono aperte a tutti tra: fumettisti, illustratori ed artisti di vario genere e natura che vogliano esporre (o creare sul momento) le loro opere nella più naturale anarchia ed autogestione. Partecipate!

Yes, I did it: I wrote my first blog post in italian. But it's just to better promote this event to the locals. This seems to be a good opportunity to use Google Translate :)

moonlight shadow

I already widely told about my love story with Moonlight Shadow, and the time of the tribute has come :) I could do much better, but I would have lost in the vain pursuit of perfection and in the infinite sea of images and colours that this song generates in my mind. And in the memories of a lifetime. So, as usual, I let my hand go into the moleskine and this is simply what came out. I hope you'll like it!

What is you favourite yoghurt flavor? Mine, despite of this picture, is not strawberry but cherry: the one with pieces of fruit inside :)

bubble #15

I love September. Everything starts again after the summer holidays, the weather cools down, Autumn is around the corner, you meet again your super tanned friends back from their beaches around the world, the kids go back to school and you remember how it was exciting (for the first 3 days) when you were a kid.
Bologna is especially beautiful in September: the sky is always deep blue and full of bright white soft clouds, the light around is crystal clear and, towards evening, it fades to gold. The air is fizzy, everything sounds new and you know that another season is going to start in the clubs and the bars and the pubs and all the places where you shelter during winter time. And you're electrified as a school boy.
This song, Impressioni di Settembre, talks about a September dawn fourty years ago, in some country side in northern Italy. PFM is the most popular italian prog rock band and their albums are already legend: my favourite is their first one, Storia di un Minuto, which contains this pearl. I suggest to find and listen to the entire album at once: enjoy your trip :)
