“The Flying Hat”

It’s the tenth of January and I decided to, finally and officially, start my year, drawing this.

It was the Spring of 2017 when I was following a drawing course at the Andromeda Art Laboratory, in Trento. We were exercising on shapes, objects and movement and I was copying a famous illustration of a flying hat, made by I dunno any more what amazing artist.

So, I had drawn a saggy and quite mediocre hat with pencil – not so different from this one I just did – and Toti, the teacher, came to me and, looking from over my shoulder, said excited: “It flies!”

So this is my wish for us all: to manage to draw our flying hat. It doesn’t have to be perfect, it doesn’t have to be pretty, the important thing is that it flies, making us happy.

Happy new year.

Saturday Revò Live

I had the pleasure, yesterday in Revò, to get on stage and talk about what I think it’s important a just-turned-18 keeps in mind, a bit about ethics and a bit about myself as a political cartoonist

And I have to say I feel a bit better about the future, now! Apart from the fact that these dudes don’t smell and don’t look like a homeless scarecrow – like I did at their age – they also got some self confidence and were able to cope with a number of questions I posed them, giving some really interesting answers.

Well, what I can say to sum it up is that they have no idea what ‘Beverly Hills 90210’ is – finally we’re starting to forget Donna Summer! – that they think ‘Crystal Ball’ “was” a thing – sad face – and most importantly they, for example, think there’s not enough engagement among younsters. Some read newspapers, some online, some in paper. One of them told me that immigration will bring more people to meet – definitely a good attitude.

Then there was a guy that was unbelievably happy with everything! Lucky him! And another that told me for his 18th birthday he didn’t get drunk. I don’t believe you, man. I don’t believe you! Actually I didn’t either 😉

“Blue Gold”: a digital oil painting about the value of water, that is becoming – if it isn’t already – a currency for which wars are being and will be fought, more and more often.
