Couple of weeks ago, an idea popped up in my mind.
Actually it was a dream. From that dream, I started to think about a personal project, something I really believe in. It is taking shape in my head, and as long as I stay focused on that, it may turn out good.
Luckily, I'm not alone in this, somebody's helping me a lot, and today we went for a walk in town, taking pictures, watercolor sketches, and a nice coffee with croissant!
We're planning to do it every weekend, let's see what happens!
Here are some sketches I'm posting quikcly, otherwise somebody is going to get mad at me...
The first one is a pencil and watercolor sketch I did for a ChiUstream contest, is called "Mermaid Morning Care", and it managed to get even a vote! Wow, I'm celebrating.
This is the original sketch. Now that I think about it, I should have leave it as it was, but being smarter than a fox, I managed to mess around with color and -way too much- saturation, ending up with this:
Second sketch is for today ChiUstream contest. Subject: a caricature of great artist Jason Seiler. Some of the guy participating posted pretty amazing stuff. But it's a really hard challenge, prize being an original caricature of the winner made by Seiler himself.
I love cinema. It's a constant inspiration for my work and life. Of course animated movies have a special place in my favourite list. I adore Chaplin, Disney, Scorsese, Sorrentino, Miyazaki, Tarantino, Haneke, Garrone, Gondry, Chomet, Coppola (daughter more than dad, lately), and I'm going random.
Novels and comic books are always with me (mostly on the bus!). My book baptism was a bloody one, with dirty, violent greek myths, and went from Pinocchio to Palahniuk passing through Eco, Carroll, Lansdale, O'Brian, Tolkien and so many more.
I do canyoning and speleology. Actually I did.
I like to go randomly around my town and take pencil and watercolour sketches.
I can't resist at the sight of lonely cookies and pies. Gotta eat them.
