Second drawing inspired by Il giovane favoloso (here’s the first one), the biopic about Giacomo Leopardi presented at the Venice Film Festival.

I really loved Michele Riondino’s performance as Antonio Ranieri, Leopardi’s best friend, and I wanted to remember, through the sparks of the background, both the ardent spirit of this young man and the fiery volcano Vesuvius, near which Leopardi and Ranieri spent some months together before the poet’s premature death.

This is my second tribute (here’s the first one) to Hungry Hearts, an intense film about parenthood that I saw in Venice some weeks ago. Adam Driver’s performance is a compelling blend of love for his psychotic wife - beautifully played by Alba Rohrwacher - and worry for his newborn baby.

Trying some new brushes…


My personal tribute to Il giovane favoloso by Mario Martone. I’ve seen it at the Venice Film Festival and I must say it’s not a perfect movie, but it’s about my favourite poet ever: Giacomo Leopardi.
I can’t decide between the two versions above: which one do you prefer?

Hungry Hearts

Back from Venice! Yay!
Here’s my tribute to one of the most talented actress in Italy, the amazing Alba Rohrwacher, who just won the Coppa Volpi for her performance in Hungry Hearts by Saverio Costanzo.

Venice Film Festival!

Hello, dear followers!

Tomorrow I’m leaving for Venice, where I’ll attend the Film Festival. This means that I won’t post many drawings in the next few days, since I’ll be far from my beloved pc and I’ll be writing movie reviews and interviews all day long.

I’ll be back in Rome on September 7. Wish me good luck! ♥

Commission for the lovely existingcharactersdiehorribly (specifically for the Mizumono Support Group). I loved drawing this happy Will with his puppies - and his whiskey, of course.

Oh, and he’s wrapped in a red blanket because, you know… It’s #BloodyMonday and we should wear something red to #EatTheEmmys.

Thank you, folks. Seriously, I’d like to thank you one and all for the adorable messages.

It was just a moment of sadness. I’m feeling better. :)


Don’t be sad, darling! Here’s a tiny Will just for you! ♥

You’re welcome! ♥

I don’t like to talk about my personal problems, but:
- my father is terminally ill
- I’m unemployed
Somebody please tell me that life has something better to offer than this.
