The Show Has Begun

And finally the day arrived… This year's Bloomsday at the James Joyce Cultural Center started a little early. Sunday 10th, the Sketchers (of which I am a very proud member for five years or so) have exhibited their works dedicated to what many consider as the greatest novel in English of the twentieth century: Ulysses. My... Continue Reading →


Bloomsday 2018 is here!

Domenica dovrei, salvo sorprese, riuscire a riunirmi agli Sketchers. Nel frattempo, il ricordo di una visita fatta a... Continue Reading →

Killing time

Waiting for my mum. She just finished her operation (all went well) and I finished drawing whilst waiting in her room. Sketching is always the best way whenever I'm stressed and want for time to pass quickly. Aspettando mia madre. Ha appena finito un'operazione (tutto è andato bene) e io ho appena finito un disegno... Continue Reading →
