A Wish

Luna Pernox is a regular presence in my sketchbook since my school days. She appears when I'm approaching the dreaded "low tide" of creativity we all experience every now and then. Therefore, she's never really welcome. Her name means "full moon" in latin and it's a nickname someone gave me a long time ago, due to my well-known moodiness. This is the first time I attempt to give her a little colour... She has a wish and I have one too.

On a more interesting note, this week I'm starting to work on a new editorial project. I'm very happy about this. I know it is something I'll greatly enjoy, it also has a nice layout. The graphic designer I'm working with is very helpful, friendly and willing to go over the many language barriers between us (huge plus!) I'll share more when I'll be allowed to.

qualunque sia il tuo desiderio... sai che sto incrociando i diti di piedi e di mani più altre parti del corpo assortite... :)

invece sul nuovo progetto non dico niente, se non che muoio dalla voglia di saperne di più.
