Back from NY!!!

Hi everyone,
I'm gonna tell you something that you've never heard from anybody:


Maybe someone has already told this.


I'm a moron :P

Anyway, as you can see, I and my friend Alessandro :iconalessandromicelli: totally enjoyed our vacation in NY! The weather was fortunately fine and people were GREAT! My god, I could never find so kind people here in Europe! You're the best, guys! Love you!

You can find a kind of compilation of pictures here

I met a lot of people at the Con, new and old friends, unfortunately I missed someone ( Kweli AKA Chris Copeland and and Matt Waite, again, I'm sooooooo sorry!!!), and I missed some sketchbooks I absolutely wanted to have (LeSean's one and Sanford Greene's one...damn!).

My "Con best Cosplayer Award" goes to the AMAZING li'l Wolverine. I swear, I laughed for about 10 minutes. Simply incredible. you can find a picture down here.

My "Con best purchase Award" goes without any doubt to an original HellBlazer page by the amazing talented :iconseangordonmurphy:, actually one of my favourite artists (psssst, guys, if you want an advice, go and buy some of his stuff: for that quality, I can say he's practically givin'it for free!).

I had some meetings with various publishers, expecially Marvel and DC; and it's always the same story: "man, your pages rock, you've got a very cool style....BUT....We actually do not have a contract for you, 'cause you've got a too extreme style, maybe in the future.... not a good period for cartoony styles :)

Madison Square Garden was GREAT, and fortunately the Knicks had a great game until the 4th quarter, so it's been a very riveting game. I've also heard that the stadium is goin' to be crashed and re-builted, so I can consider myself lucky, 'cause I've had the chance to see the old one before the re-construption :)

Unfortunately we didn't see a lot of the cultural part of the city, we only had a panoramic view on the Empire State Building (so we can at least say that "we saw EVERYTHING on Mahattan" :D :D :D ) and a less more...You know, when you see shops that sell things at 10, while the same things cost 40 in Italy...well, you're practically FORCED to spend the entire time into shops!!! :D (and the entire money...sigh!)

There's another ton of things to say, but I don't want to bother you guys anymore, so I'm going to close with a little advertising:
please go and take a look at , a wecomic written by the great Adam P. Knave and illustrated by me. Few art, but tons of fun, trust me!!!
