Couples


When Christmas time comes there are 2 things that i see more than anything, couples and lights. At this moment I'm feeling a little bit romantic.

I'm gonna be busy for several days, so ...Merry Christmas!

Quando arriva Natale ci sono 2 cose che vedo più di altre, le coppiette e le luci. In questo momento mi sento un pò romantico.
Sarò un pò occupato nei prossimi giorni, quindi... Buon Natale!

Cioccolata






Dolce, amara,
fondente, con le nocciole, con i cereali. Al mattino dopo il caffè, il pomeriggio con il caffè, la sera dopo cena mentre guardi un film. Le dita marroni, sono quel che rimane fino al momento in cui con un sorriso godurioso te le lecchi! Ho sempre amato la cioccolata.

Sweet, bitter, with nuts, with cereals. In the morning after a coffe, in the afternoon after a coffee, in the evening after lunch while you' re watching a movie. Brown fingers , this is what remains until the moment you lick , with an enjoyable smile! I've always loved chocolate .

Shanghai 2





Sometime I like walking alone waching people, their expression , their clothes , the way they are seated; or standing in front of a building especially when made in structural stone and cement with a lot of corners and different colours.

A volte mi piace camminare solo e osservare le persone, le oro espressioni, i loro vestiti, il mondo in cui si siedono, oppure fermarmi di fronte ad un palazzo, specialmente quando sono costruti in pietra vista e cemento con molti spigoli e differenti colori.

Ritorno a casa ( Back Home )


I'm come back in Italy. I' ve seen a lot of things in Shanghai, it' been my third time in China , but everytime is different. Shanghai is a typical big city, traffic jam, noise, people and people and people, but if you go through the little streets hidden behind the skyscrapers, you can see some foreshortening of China , little hovels full of every kind of old stuff...I think i'll go back soon.

Her dad said to not enter in that room.
But you can’t say that to a little girl!
Because her only thought will be...
...to open that door...and see with her eyes what that room contains.
Nothing! It was only a room that has been used as “ old stuff’s cemetery”.
There weren’t monsters, ghosts or secrets , but only the things of a past that we often wish to remember.

Sono tornato in Italia. Ho visto molte cose a Shanghai. E' la mia terza volta in Cina , ma è sempre diverso. Shanghai è la tipica grande città, traffico, rumore, gente gente e gente, ma se ti addentri nelle piccole strade nascoste dietro qualche grattacielo puoi vedere qualche scorcio della Cina, piccole baracche piene di ogni genere di roba vecchia...credo che ci tornerò presto.

Gnam!


Well, it' s been a while since my last post. I' ve been really busy... Shanghai is a big city, my girlfriend is a beautiful girl and my comic book have to be finished, otherwise there's a real chance that i could be killed by my editor! There are a lot of things i'd like showing about Shanghai: a kind old man sat down playing his own armonica, another old man who taught english, some corner of the city, the traffic controller, etc. But i have to work and finish my comic book in time!
In the meantime , get this little sketch.It's dedicated to the incomparable chinese noodles( chinese name in red).

Shanghai





Hi! It' s a long time...

Sorry but i spent last weeks walking around Shanghai ...it' s a big big city

I made somelife drawings to catch things and folks, but it's hard. Everything is fascinating i can't decide what or who or when drawing. I'm trying to study the people , the faces, finding my synthesis...

The chinese people is really kind, when i'm drawing there's always someone that slowly and with a big smile approaches me ...i make my best smile saying i don't speak chinese!

Well, it's late ( 8:40 pm) , i'm starving. Tomorrow new stuff. I bought a new scanner . Below old pieces that i made in my first day in Shanghai, and when i was leaving at the airport.

cheers!

Inverno ( Winter )



Winter, my favourite season. A time of intimacy. A time of telling confidence.

Inverno, la mia stagione preferita. Un periodo di intimità. Un momento per farsi confidenze.

Colours or blue? I don't know! I'm uncertain.

Colore o blue? Non so! Sono indeciso

Solo (Alone)


Some days ago i was in my studio too tired to work and watching some old photos I started to think about people who works everyday, and when return home ...there's nobody, like this man who sit down after dinner, everyday, looking the floor.


Un pò di giorni fa ero nel mio studio stanco troppo stanco per lavorare e guardando alcune vecchie foto ho iniziato a pensare alla gente che lavora tutti i giorni, e quando se ne torna a casa...non c'è nessuno come quest' uomo che siede dopo cena ,tutti i giorni, guardando il pavimento.
Sono fortunato.

Buonanotte( Goodnight)


Do you remember when you were kids , and in the middle of the night your father , slowly and silently coming in your room to see you, he stood by the door with a little smile, and you pretende to be asleep?
It' s a fast sketch , with biro .

Vi ricordate quando eravate piccoli, e nel mezzo della notte vostro padre, lentamente e silenziosamente veniva nella vostra stanza per vedervi, stava in piedi sulla soglia con un piccolo sorriso, e voi fingevate di dormire?
