Why I missed them?
I didn't miss them, but I'll use them to make a surprise, so, to avoid "spoilers", I cannot post them, sorry... You'll see them in time ;)
(too many "them" in this sentence XD
Anyway, starting from...
I was standing in the doctor queue and I was trying to find inspiration from people/objects in the room, while I noticed on the ceiling this strange, rounded lamp that seemed to watching me...
This just came out by itself... eventually, it was supposed to be a fish, at the beginning XD
This was made in a Bologna bar, in via Zamboni, as I was taking an hot chocolate (that later gave me many digestive problems -.- ) with a Lady ^^
She suggested a dust mite, that in italian is "acaro" and it came out to be an HACKER-o. :P
(made on a paper tovel, 'cause I didn't had any kind of paper with me)
And today animal, the swan, James Swan, I'll say, as it kept a Bond looking, dunno why...
Inspired by the same Lady of the day before. :)
See you soon, guys :*

So, in order, here are my latest sketch :)
A little, hungry dormouse ^^
I used a photo as reference...
This was made on the train from San Giovanni to Bologna saturday night, as I was reaching some good friends there for some pub_chatting ^^
It was quite my expression when I realized a thing about passed and future new year's day...
This all started with a friend of mine asking for a zebra (yeah, I know that this is not a zebra, but let me explain...).
As my first attempt came out as a big nasty mix of lines, I started a new one, near the first.
But, as I made eyes and muzzle, I thought "You're not a zebra, you're a reptile, my friend!" and he just popped out of my pen ^^
And here we come, today...
I just made a tiny scribble (on the left) and transformed it in a little rabbit :)
(I used to do this game with a friend of mine at middle school... lot of fun and never listening to the teacher XD )
Hope you enjoy ;)

Probably being away all the day influenced my memory XD
Anyway, just to keep the rhythm, here are two things:
The first one (yesterday drawing) is an echidnas (yes, I'm becoming a fan of this chubby animal ^^ )
The second is and experiment: I made firt the pencil drawing, then inked it, then made a scan and finally, while I was getting to coulour it as usual, accidentally, I removed the black-line level and, WO!, it worked even without it, why couldn't I try a different thing? And that's it!
Ok, it's not perfect, not even good, but it's a try ;)
P.S. this fellon came out in my dreams this night, I dreamed of having a little baby duck as a pet... don't ask why XD

And, just to copy around, why shouldn't I do (or try at least) as Chris Ayers (www.chrisayersdesign.com)?
He's a great artist and a mindmotivator for me ^^
His job is amazing and plus, he's an animal lover as I am :)
So, here we are, a Yeeeeeah-na done today!
I know, is black&white, again... but I'm working on it... hope to get it coloured in a satisfactoryl way as soon as possible!

Here are animals drawing... in "Bea's style" ;)
Simple, but they're just sketches, anyway...
A corn mouse:
And a hungy caterpillar ^^
And last but not least, my favourite, the Platypus XD
As you can notice, I've copied my friend Rita's idea about the added "logo" XD
Forgive me :P
lunedì 25 ottobre 2010
Anyway, just to keep the morale high, I coloured something for the comics fair ;)
So the firt is a worried/astonished Neki (he as just find out who is the story villain XD )
And this is the Querciagrande (Bigoak) village chief whit his friend Blink, the Hummingbird, and the wellknown Gary, the Firefly ^^
venerdì 22 ottobre 2010
And I'm not prepared XD
Also, I'm working for the Bologna Children's Book Fair of 2011...
Quite confused, right!
Anyway, here it is a "Neki" I made in this days.
I'll post other things later.
And say "bye" to the little halloweeeeeeen black cat ;P

Ok, it's bee a while since I've posted something here, but is just because I'm very busy!
I'm working hard, and ot only on comics and illustrations... I'm also writing and working part-time... And maybe I'll paint on several walls of a bar! And I'm following a watercolour class :)
So my time to "surf in the web" is limited.
But here are some of the works I'm doing... enjoy ^^
A Bernini's David for my watercolour class:
Sample illustrations for my (maybe) future book (Neki RULES!!!) :
And cooking XD
domenica 29 agosto 2010
Anyway, I didn't draw a lot, while I was away, so I've decided to put myself back to work as soon as I could, and here are the results.
This is my first "rational" watercolour. I didn't learned how to work with watercolours at school, so, this is just a try...
Maybe my illustrations for the www.bookfair.bolognafiere.it will be made like this one, bho XD
So welcome my new character, this little Inuit with no name, for now ^^
Hope you enjoy ;)
edit: it was too small... ^^
Whanna see this film, waaa! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r7-8ArC8QqQ&annotation_id=annotation_113386&feature=iv"

Your result for The Golden Compass Daemon Test...
Fun Loving Soul
You are an open and social person. When you are left alone you tend to get bored and restless, and too much time without social contact makes you fade away. A good night surrounded by friends and laughter soon perks you back up.
You are trusting and truthful, and you aren't good at hiding your emotions from friends or strangers alike. People need to take you as you are - and often they do. You are confident but not overconfident, sensitive but not touchy. You aren't afraid to give your opinion, or to let someone know when they have offended you, but you don't constantly fly off the handle. You simply want to make your thoughts and feelings known, and you are just as open to hearing others' points of view. Sometimes your friends feel slighted by you, because they aren't as open about their feelings as you are, and so you don't always notice when they are feeling hurt or down.
Your daemon's form would represent your social and emotionally honest nature, as well as your balanced sense of self. He or she would constantly be throwing him or herself into the moment - enjoying the feel of the afternoon wind, the throbbing beat of music in the club, or helping you argue your point.
Suggested forms: Meerkat, Labrador Retriever, Sea Lion, Lemur
