Latest news in this last month...

After few months from "The Variable Man - graphic novel edition" (that is actually under development, one of my trusted colleagues is actually doing inking process) and first steps development opened by me, I decide to start a little parallel project that is something between a video concept and a short illustrated novel. Actually, I've finished screenplay and started first screens (they looks pretty cool, I want to keep a traditional line media, just scan then manage via iMovie for mac) and I can only say that...everything is going to takes the right shape. The main challenge is to enhance my inner visions at maximum size keepin' a sweet and pretty dark style (previously searched on "Beyond Mirror" short story).

I can't tell too much for obvious reasons (I prefer to write about Italian food stuff here or, maybe, my pseudo-emo romance stories in a remote future where nobody cares about...I have a personal necessity to write something because I know in my deep that my mind must be focused in this to take out the best but I must pay big attention cause THEY're everywhere! Yeah...jackass, scumbags, moron you know? Always ready to rape my beautiful mind) so, I limit myself to a simple phrase taken from a native American who inspire my imagination mixed on own culture:

"there's another time when we become related not only on earth but related with cosmos"

Hope that, who read this, will be able to produce something original cause this phrase sense is really interesting and it really wake up my mind one more time!

Have a nice and productive day,

"Where I came from..."

"Everywhere I will go, wherever I will build my present day through huge sacrifices, I will always remember my origins as a Vesuvious' son."

Dedicated to my uncle who live in Florida, Miami; and all the people over the world that have Campania origins.

Development: 1 quiet week spent startin' from simple basic linework (2b pencils) to digital coloring with a Wacom graphic tablet and Corel Painter/Photoshop software.

Anatomy for artists

My free and personal space comes true...

I decide to use Blogger as personal/alternative blog to keep beside my detailed Linkedin space.
This decision comes with some demands of mine that are growing in a "open source" thinking. In fact, my main digital tools of the trade will be Open Office and CeltX that I will use for supporting my creativity during my development processes. I want to go forward with my research and gain some money at the same time, possibly, without lose money and health.

Another important reason is that I don't like Deviant Art for some aspects. It's easy, faster and comfortable to manage about art stuff side...but doesn't give advantage if you still manage a basic free account. The only way to have extra visibility chances without pay any subscription are only external (sharing your artwork on other networks) but:

1. I don't seek popularity, I only do simple personal researches.
2. I'm a science/art appreciator so, I'm atheist but I respect every point of view.
3. I'm a sort of analyst.
4. I'm not Benjamin Franklin, just myself, simple and level-headed.
5. The thing that really matters to me is, simply, living life without regret.
6. I consider myself normal. Naturally, "normal" is a subjective notion.
7. Hope to live my chances as well in this world that I don't like in some aspects.
