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
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
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!
