Boogers goes to Hong Kong!

I know, I've disappeared and I apologize so much!
In the last months I've been taking a Master in Art Direction for Advertising in Milan.
It is a very interesting and inspirational world, so it has been taking most of my time so far.
I've put the illustrations on hold which is quite a mistake, I am coming back soon, promise!

On the good news side, my classically animated short "Boogers" was screeened in Hong Kong, along with a bunch of very talented artists from my origin's area.
It was a pleasure and honor and I want to thanks the "Fogolar Furlan Hong Kong" for the great opportunity given.
Here a sample of the flyers given at the event:

In case you haven't seen the short, you can find it here:

Thanks all!

Unleashing your potential

Today I asked on twitter a subject to draw and the very talented _Octavia_ (go follow!) suggested the "potential" part of a monologue by Dylan Moran, which I find hilarious (and sad, at the same time)
Here's the clip:

The composition popped into my head immediately and I decided to focus on the little poor thing.
No, it's not mud.
Hope you enjoy!

As usual, please view in full size.

This week Illustration Friday topic was Myth.
During High School, I've studied tons of acient greek and latin mythology and I always loved the subject.
So, at the beginning I wanted to portrait Hades, which actually used to be painted and sculpted as a chill guy with a cool beard.
Alto, the idea I had in mind required a vertical format and this time I wanted to do something horizontal.
So I remembered one of my favorite tricksters: Pan, which will be used in modern literature, comics, movies and videogames as an archetype upon which many characters will be based on.
Also, Satan.
I guess that running after all those nymphs gave him quite the reputation.
Poor Pan.

I've been more graceful to him and painted him as a peaceful guy.

Hope you enjoy!

Facebook Page

So, I wasn't huge fan of Facebook pages but seeing a lot of fellow colleugues opening one, I decided to do it myself.
I'll keep it updated and will try to diversify from the blog.
Also, I will post some inspirational art and tutorials that I'll find online.
Like and share, are very appreciated!
So, here it is:

The Edge

This week's Illustration Friday topic was: Edge.
I hope all of you had a great Holiday, I know I did, despite sickness.
Maybe I took the theme too literal but it was kinda guided by the feel of it.
Hope you enjoy!
