A really nice day, spent together, relaxing away from the city. Unipin fineliners (0.05 and 0.1) Happy Birthday my love! Oggi è il compleanno di... Continue Reading →


Blade Runner is one of my favorite movies of all time. This is a small tribute to one of the characters, the replicant Rachael, who finds out who or what she really is practically out of nowhere.
