I have a very good friend, I am very lucky. We've been friends for more than the half of our lives.
This year for his birthday I wanted to make something special, so I MADE a tablecloth with its 6 napkins, I designed a graphic and hand-painted the tablecloth and napkins. Although it took me ages to finish, and the present was delivered 3 months after his birthday (sorry), I am very proud of myself.
I really like this fish, so I also made it available in my Redbubble shop to be printed in a large number of items.
All above and much more you can purchase at my Redbubble shop.
It's been a while!
In the past months a lot of things happened in my life. Some very good and some very bad.
As a side effect my productivity has been slowing down. Big time.
However lately I have found myself wanting to dive into the creation process again, and I have been focusing on my new passion: Pattern Design. Some Skillshare courses and a workshop with the amazing Barbara Mazzoleni last year helped me strengthen my technical skills, and I am now able to create repeating patterns.
I have produced some designs and they are available in my Redbubble shop (you can check it out HERE). The site is amazing, the art that you choose can be printed in a gazillion of products, from classic art print to duvet covers to stickers (stickers!).
I suggest you to sign up for their newsletter, you will receive updates and notifications on new products and discounts.
Now that I have a few designs already, I decided it was time to update this website. I have reorganized the portfolio and now you can see one page for Illustrations (with some new entries as well) and a new page for Pattern Designs. Please have a look around and let me know what you think.
As one of the selected artists for the Uliando Uliando artistic residency, I have spent last weekend in beautiful Otranto ejoying drawing, meeting new friends, living the good life and being inspired.
