OMG what an exciting week!

I might have found the room where I am going to move to in March.
It's the first and only one I've viewed this time, but I am quite tired of room hunting every 6 months.
Also, I would be in Archway (which is a location I like), and I would have to share the flat only with a woman my age, who is vegetarian, into art, yoga and meditation. Perfect flatmate for me!
I asked to view the room again on Thursday (tomorrow), and I will make my decision.
Well, the other flatmate has to make her decision too, but I think we both like each other =)

Also, the new chapter of Glass no Kamen by divine Suzue Miuchi has been published on the monthly issue of Hana to Yume. You should know how much this manga means for me =)
Well, as far as the relationship between Maya and Masumi, this chapter is the most exciting so far!
I have just read the summary my wonderful Ale-chan wrote on my good old Italian forum and I am going to translate it as soon as possible. I almost fell oft my chair when I read it.
My goodness, 46 volumes and I still adore this manga. Ok with highs and lows, but now is definitely one of the 'highs' =)
I hope the chapter will stay the same when the official volume 47 is published. Please, Miuchi sensei!!! =)
Stay tuned fans of Glass no Kamen, my fansite is going to be updated as soon!

Last but not least, I took Friday off. I am going to take my first Eurostar to Paris, and then the TGV to ANGOULEME to see the international comics festival! Yes, I am following my dreams, as usual =)
I will be couch surfing because I don't know anyone in there and everywhere was all fully booked.
I bought a sleeping bag since there will be about 8 couch surfers in the same house and I don't think there are many sofas! LOL!
I'm a little scared but also very excited!
Oh and my best friend Cecilia is there already, so we will meet on Friday afternoon and hopefully Saturday morning.

Life is ace =)

My portfolio :)

Ladies and gens,

finally I got rid of the Wordpress-based illustration blog and replaced it with a messy one I built from scratch with php, html and some JavaScript! Yay!

I know there is a lot of room for improvement, but I am really excited about it!!!

I have so many projects I start and never finish that this is for me a great achievement! Especially because I keep spending all my energies in searching for a decent shared flat in North London :D

So, I picked up some images from my personal favourites or most popular ones in DeviantArt and displayed then in a simple portfolio.

I tried not to make it too messy, you might know how much I like to put a lot of colours and patterns together :)

Anyway, while I am still trying to improve the technical part, and test it in as many browsers as I can, I would really love to ask you to help me with any kind of feedback. It would be greatly appreciated!

You can send me feedback by email, by comments on this blog or using the form in the contact page of my portfolio.

Enjoy!

Happy New Year!

Since I seem to spend all my energies room hunting and moving every 6 months, I don't have time and strength to paint... But I still need to do it.

So, I always carry with me a sketchbook, a pencil and a fiber-tip pen.
Sometimes, I even use them! :)

I have recently discovered that my black and white drawings are as popular as my coloured ones... In spite of the time it takes me to make them!

This is one of my personal favourites, titled: "I found a friend". Enjoy :)

I found a friend!

You can find this and more sketches as usual on my deviantArt account.

Also, I am (slowly) building an online portfolio. It will be very simple and much nicer to use than the current illustration blog.
