un ballon rouge… à paris!

ouì! mon cher prru ira à paris! and I stay here… he goes for work so… but…
have you seen? my little elephant is in paris! see the pic number 5! his balloon!!

sentendomi così internazionale [italiano, francese, inglese…] ho deciso di ricominciare 
a scrivere la doppia versione in madrelingua… cosa ne dite curiosetti? ecco, allora inizio
dicendovi che si, ippo goes to paris… ahahah! scherzo… ippo va a parigi e mi lascia
qui, ma va per lavoro perciò… però avete visto? il mio elefantino è arrivato anche 
a parigi! nella foto numero 5 si vede il suo palloncino!!

black pen on white? trompe l’oeil!

hallo my dears…
I’m thinking about buying a bag from one of my favorite designer,
roberta di camerino. she became famous for her trompe l’oeil bags and dresses,
and I discovered her when my mother‘s aunt gave me two wonderful bags,
[yes, real vintage!] one of these bags is in my wardrobe [you can see a very similar 
one here] even if my one is pink; the second one, my favorite, was stolen from

earth day donation!

yess, my little elephant has had a wonderfull idea!

I was searching for something I could do with my tees, just to make them 
really sustainable, and I found out this initiative called newtrees, promoted by wwf
and googleplant a tree and watch it grow with google earth! it’s really nice ’cos you
make a donation, about 10$ for a tree, and they plant it in indonesia, giving you the
exact coordinate so you could follow his growth!

earth day 2012… what?!

in effetti non ho spiegato alla maggior parte di voi cos’è l’earth day
lo spiego in italiano perché credo che la parte di mondo anglofona lo sappia
perfettamente… in realtà credo che lo sappia anche la parte non anglofona, tranne
noi italiani… già già, perché noi italiani degli stati uniti riusciamo sempre a vedere 
il peggio e mai le cose buone…

matt shlian, the folding artist

while I’m illustrating mugs, tshirts, aprons etc etc, I want to share with you one of my 
favorite artist: matt shlian! he is a paper ingeneer and I really love his works of
paper, real pieces of art to me… I tried many times to use his folding paper technics
for my jobs… now I’m planning to realize one giant paper installation in my home
[to put just near the giant calder’s style mobile I’m going to realize…] the installation
at number 2, misfold, 2008, totally hypnotize me, I could stand watching it all day
long… so relaxing… better than a zen garden… or a lava lamp!

I really love paper and I think being a paper ingeneer it’s very cool!

fashion coloring pages: from white to…

how are you curiosetti? is your new year started good? well, I can’t complain…
on saturday we went to the seaside, weather was warm and we had had a wonderful
time! it seem that this year, in italy, winter doesn’t want to arrive, and it’s always 
spring… a freezy spring, but sunny, with blue skye and extra white clouds…

paint this wall white..

and here comes the epiphany, that brings away all the holidays… I know I’m no more 
a child.. but I have received a sock full of gift! guess what I found in! some white 
delicious meringues [that I cannot eat but, anyway, looks delicious!], and a beatiful doll
wearing a nice elf hat and a trapeze wool dress.. so sweet! thanks mrs. fr!
there was also a wood frame [white!] and I think the beatiful paint at number 3,
by paule tb  would fit it perfectly, especialli this month!
happy epiphany!

I wish you, a white new beginning!

happy new year curiosetti!
white is the new color for january! are you surprised? from rainbow to no color
at all… but there is a reason! a new year is starting and we have to put a lot of
new things in it, we have to write a new story, to dream new dreams, to customize 
everything that comes into our life… and what is better to customize of a white 
new something? nothing I think!
