Tim Burton Exibition

Argh, I was almost forgetting about this one! The show was really cool with all the maquettes and sketches and letters and videos... So entertaining! If happen you get the show in your town, GO! Here some of the original art.

Dr Sketchy Toronto was back! (and then gone again)

 I couldn't join it for long as I had all my relatives visiting right during the 2 month of summer when Dr Sketchy Toronto re-open doors for the last time. It's surely missed and I hope somebody else will be that committed to restart it as it bring so much life to the Toronto's art venue. More pictures on my Flickr album of Dr Sketchy.
If you're interested of other lifedrawing dressed class in Toronto you can join their Facebook page as the Toronto Cartoonist workshop organize something similar.

Observational sketches

Yes, I neglected my blog, but it really takes lots of time getting these pictures from my albums to this page. Anyhow, for who though I stopped drawing, I can ensure I'm still crazy sketcher and still enjoy make use of my watercolors and pencils. Other pictures from my travels are loaded on my Flickr page, mainly in the travel and portrait sections..

Recipes illustrated from varius Nonne (and Mamma)

Yes, I do like cooking and I do like to learn traditional recipes even more now that I live in Canada.
 Most of the times that I go to visit my family I ask for some recipes so that I'll be able to do them later when I'm hosting people for dinners.
In order, we have Grape pudding (sugo d'uva) from my Nonna Albertina, Gnocco Fritto from Simona's nonna, Lasagne Verdi from my Nonna Anna, and Spaghetti with Sardine from my Mum.

Going for museums

For who doesn't know yet, at the end of October I become Canadian! And now it comes with a treat: a card offer from the Institute of Citizenship that allows to go for most of Canadian museum and parks for FREE for 1 year. This is the best gift ever! As you can see I already started to make good use of my citizenship :-)

Canadian animal deformed

I had in mind this Canadian animal project and so I'm putting down some design for further developing. I think this come out with a really aboriginal feeling.
