Archivio di febbraio 2012
We’re having the coldest winter in 30 years, many Italian cities are covered by snow, even the mount Vesuvio is white although it isn’t snowing in the city. Today it’s freezing but I like to see the rain pouring outside the window.
The second illustration of the 2012 has been done, so here’s Sea Serpents IV. This binomial Klimt/Nextlola is working amazingly…well, at least for me…it’s an inspiring challenge to melt both styles remaining just Nextlola at the same time.
It was a long time I wished to find time to draw, actually when I decided to try to be a “real” illustrator it was to spend hours drawing and not feeling guilty with thoughts like “damn, I should be working now!”.
Finally I put other activities aside for a while to spend some weeks doing what I like most…and it’s such a nice sensation waking up thinking “ok, which one of my ideas will become real today?”…Danae is the first answer.
When I was seventeen I had the chance to see a Klimt’s retrospective in Firenze and I still consider it as one of the most astonishing art exhibition I ever seen: vibrant colors, amazing style, but what really shocked me was the huge amount of such beautiful paintings he made…somehow in my head I thought that such beauty could exist just in a “limited edition”.
