One year past, same heat

It was hot and the air conditioning unit was out of order. In spite of the place, which was really good for an exhibition, I still remember the heat and the greenhouse effect due to the large glass windows and doors. That was the Cardboard Town exhibition at the SMS Art Centre, in Pisa, Italy. Today, one year is passed and the weather is just the same.

Era caldissimo e l’aria condizionata era guasta. malgrado il posto, davvero ottimo per una mostra, mi ricordo ancora il bollore e l’effetto serra dovuto alle grandi vetrate. Questa era la mostra La Città di Cartone, al Centro SMS, a Pisa. E’ passato un anno e il caldo è lo stesso.

Seven Legged Express Journey

This time, the title of this post isn’t the title of a painting of mine, even if it could be. It’s actually the name of a cool blog featuring cool webcomics: Seven Legged Express Journey. I immediately liked the title when I found it by chance, even if I still don’t exactly know what does it mean (sometimes it makes me think of 7/8 odd time signatures I enjoy playing on drums). I liked the comic cartoon, too, with the Panda, the Deer and the mysterious cats.

Now, it comes up that the nice authors of that nice blog nominated this very blog of mine, Cardboard Towns, for the Sunshine Award. Well – here is something really flattering. It’s always a pleasure, and a honor, this kind of things – expecially when they come from someone you appreciate.

As is my custom, I am not stepping into this award game, anyway. Why? Here is the answer – or maybe I’m simply too lazy to follow the award rules.

So, a million thanks to Pedo Koneko (the Seven Legged Express Journey authors), congratulations for their nomination,  and best wishes for their cartoons – that I’m following.

I strongly recommend Seven Legged Express Journey to anyone reading these lines. Well? What are you doing still here? Act now and click the link!

One year ago, on june 12 – it was a sunday – the Cardboard Town exibition (a bunch of paintings and videos of mine) opened at the SMS Art Center, in Pisa, Italy. The evening before a little vernissage had taken place – with pecorino cheese, panzanella, ham and red wine.

In the next days I’ll post some pictures of that exhibition – alas, without any ham or wine.

Un anno fa, il 12 giugno, apriva i battenti La Città di Cartone, mostra con un po’ di miei dipinti e video al Centro SMS di Pisa. La sera prima c’era stata una specie di vernissage a base di pecorino, panzanella, prosciutto e vino.

Nei prossimi giorni pubblicherò un po’ d’immagini di quella mostra – ma senza prosciutto né vino, purtroppo.
