“Today, in our field, there is so much talent and recognition that we are reaching a saturation point. An artist should no longer strive only for breathtaking craftsmanship; he should, instead, try to help us live better, either by dressing the wounds that are constantly being opened by society, or by offering solutions to get us out of the mess we’re in…But it’s going to be difficult and we have a lot of work to do.” - Jean 'Moebius' Giraud

Back in the day, when a customer bought a copy of PREMIER[e] they were offered a book plate with an original drawing of their choice.
Due to an oversight on my part and also because I'm not very smart, I completely forgot about doing said book plate drawings before I sent the copies out. So, while I'm away on holiday I decided to remedy my brain fart and do them during the off hours when I'm not gorging myself on pasta and pizza and home cooked meals and gelato and so on and so forth. Hehe. I loves me some Rome. Have I said that already?
Here then are the fruits of my evening's endeavors. Of course I'd write more, but I'm about to get a whole bowl of teramisu to eat all to myself because my gracious Italian hosts think that I can't finish this thing in one sitting. They don't know who they're messing with. Me and deserts are like Marty McFly and a time traveling DeLorians.
Enjoy and have a great weekend.
