All In Line







Presumptuously, some years ago I started a sketch book I called "Why Steinberg?". In it I tried to draw like as if I was Saul Steinberg (Yes...I know, dont laugh too hard!...Borges writes about Pierre Menard, a frenchman of the Twentieth Century who tries to write Don Quijote as if he was Cervantes!) My rules were to look at a Steinberg's book, close it and try to draw like Steinberg without copying it directly...Just trying to "think" like him...It was a failure but it was great fun. Highly recommended to test your mind and hand.

Animal Verses Human






Today I finished (I believe) all the drawings for this book of verses by Ken Mullen. I've been working on and off on this for many years. It'll be published early in 2006.

Old friends


I am back from Italy were I had a great time. First I've been to an animation festival in Genzano and then I went to Naples (I loved it!) back to Rome for one night and then to home in London.
In the festival I had the pleasure of meeting again old friends and having long and wonderful conversations with colleagues at tables. I was particularily happy to see again the great Danish animator Borge Ring.
Here is a photo of Borge, his wife Joanika and me.
