Illustration friday: Puppet

  • cover illustration for my book - "SCARABOCCHI SENZA TEMPO NE' SPAZIO"


Dal mio Blog Scarabocchi senza tempo né spazio (Italian only)

Gli "Scarabocchi senza tempo né spazio" sono diventati un libro, il mio secondo libro.

Oltre a contenuti noti, il libro contiene contenuti inediti e illustrazioni.

Spero che lo acquisterete, perchè c'è un po' di tutti voi che mi avete sostenuto durante tutti questi anni dentro al libro.

In più questo significherebbe per me poter continuare a pubblicare.

Potete acquistare il libro cliccando QUI

Tra qualche giorno sarà disponibile anche su Amazon.

Per il moneto vi ringrazio e vi saluto fino alla prossima volta



Illustrating and more back after...years?...

I am back.
I couldn't find another place on the web that I liked better than this one, so I have just decided to come back.

I hope someone will like me being back but anyway...

What have I been up to...let's see...

I have been drawing, painting, working with felt, singing and reading..

Sadly enough I still have to work for a living and I can't afford a creative job...YET.

yes, I am working at the possibility of doing what I like as a job, but it's still too early to talk about it.

In the meantime my second book is about to be published. It will be published in Italian first and then in English.

It will be available on Amazon probably by the end of this month, but i'll keep you posted.

Here below some drawing for a children novel I am writing for a friend, maybe I'll publish it here once finished...

This is all for now, but you'll see me pop-up more often from now.
take care

"is this a dream?" asked Toby to the stuffed doll - "It's whatever you like it to be" replied the doll.
The field mouse was wearing a Russian style waistcoat and he was holding a sewing needle as if it would be a sword.
"let's go on adventure, Toby!" - the voice of the mouse was soft and encouraging.
Toby took a pinhead and put himself in front of the row, like a real captain.
"Let's go!" he shouted.
His companions made cheerful sound of approval and the parade began moving towards the unknown.

collaboration: trying to improve my skills using MANGA STUDIO

Hi there,

I hope you are all doing fine.
I see you passing by and I want to thank all the ones taking the time to check my blog:


This is just a quick update to show you my collab with queenz14 (click on the name to get to her dA Gallery)

she is the author of One Way a very interesting Manga.
A lot of young artists are involved in the creation:

there are script writers and manga artists of all skill levels and age (I think I am the oldest  >_<)

here is the group creted to organize the works: dream-catchers-zform

I find this is a very nice initiative!

 well here is my entry number one (page 2 of chapter 3)  [click to see bigger version]

I am supposed to do the next page too....^^'

I have made the drawing traditionally (only lineart) and finished it digitally (that means background, colouring, lettering...) in MANGA STUDIO. This is the second time I used the program and I think I improved a lot: I LOVE IT!

(you can check my first attempt here: you are my inspiration page 2)

that's it for now...

I go back to worrrrrrrk




My Own Comic...trying to improve.

Hi dear Friends,
I am here again.

I first want to thank the gentle Kim and Nicola for the nice comments on my previous post: thanks girls, your support means a lot to me!

Now the post of today is to share with you another one of my comics in progress.

You get to see the cover and the first two pages all in once, but the whole thing took me one month to complete.

You'll clearly see (I hope) my progress.

I have begun since a few days using a new program for making Comics (Manga Studio) and I am super-duper happy about my investment in buying it it's a GREAT program.

I hope to hear your comments!

Thanks so much to each and everyone of you passing by!


The title of the comic is YOU ARE MY INSPIRATION
and the banner you see on the bottom of the 1st page says "Du är min inspiration" which is the title translated in Swedish since Joachim, the main character is half Swedish.

ENJOY! ^_^
