I agree with you, I kept the white space for text but it was not a good choice.

This illustration of yours, in paticular, reminds me of the work of Roberto Innocenti as published in Carlo Collodi's version of "Le Avventure di Pinocchio". Your chosen building perspective is similarly intriguing. Needless to say, I ADORE Innocenti's style and skill for capturing the beauty of visible Italian culture. Well done :clap:

This is the best compliment you can give me. I adore Innocenti too but he's a incomparable master!! :D
I hope you know "l'ultima spiaggia" [link]
it's one of my favourite Innocenti's books! :-)

I've never before seen "L'ultima Spiaggia" but thanks for the tip off - I will search for it next time I'm in Italy.

hehe ;) grazie - I will - I always do!

All the best with your illustrating, I've got to keep an eye on you to see what you do next. I'd secretly love a career as an illustrator, but I rarely draw due to procrastination, so I'll just enjoy the fruits of your talents instead :D

:) The way I see it, you're applying yourself and actually doing something with your passion. And because of that, if it fulfills you, your career doesn't need to be great in the eye's of others for you to enjoy it. That, and your obvious talent, is admirable! :aww:
