Mail from Japan

I received a beautiful letter from Yumiko, my japanese pen friend (yes, I love snail mails!).
She sent me some postcards from the japanese artist Yayoi Kusama: I didn't know this artist before writing to Yumiko. My friend wrote me about her art and her complicated and amazing life and I really love her style.
Here are two postcards she sent me:







And this is the detail of the back:



I like all these little people, the colors and specially I love that she gave names to them!

Featured on Sissy Sparrows Blog

Venerdì è il mio giorno preferito: sono nata un venerdì di maggio, se possiamo il venerdì sera io e mio marito andiamo al cinema e ora grazie ad Internet ho scoperto che spesso si parla di FF (Friday Favourites), cioè si scrive un post o un twitt su una selezione di cose che ci piacciono, proprio il venerdì.
Oggi, che è venerdì, hanno scelto una mia illustrazione da mettere nei FF: si tratta del blog Sissy Sparrow, di Julie & Donna, due brillanti disegnatrici australiane.

Questa è l'llustrazione che hanno scelto:























Café con leche.


Friday is my favorite day: I was born on a Friday in May , if we can on Friday evening my husband and I go to the cinema and now thanks to the Internet I discovered that often appears the FF (Friday Favourites), i.e. you write a post or a twitt on a selection of things that you like, just on Friday.

Today, Friday, one of my illustrations has been chosen in FF: it's the blog Sissy Sparrow, by Julie & Donna, two brilliant Australian designers.

This is the llustration they have chosen, Cafè con leche.

Feed Your Soul Project

I don't remember how I found Indie Fixx, a blog written by Jen Wallace, but I visit it now and then, and everytime I discover interesting and stimulating things.
Photos are colorful and have a special light that I love.

Besides there are always great projects to discover: I decided to get involved in the Feed Your Soul Project, a free art project in which each month artists are invited to participate and to contribute a print which is totally free and available for download.
The aim is to help art lovers feed their souls with art in these difficult economic times and to help artists promote their work.
This is my contribution:






















If you are an artist and would like to submit your work, join the project!
