Okinawa: Ginoza Art Residency

Hello there, I’ve been in Okinawa for almost two weeks now, working crazy to prepare the scenography for the show “Rheinbilder” that will be in Garaman Hall on the 21st and 22nd July.

It is the first time for me to draw something that will be screened with projector on an multi layer screen setup, and I’m learning something new every day. Drawing for screening is quite different from drawing for books, there are many things to consider, for example the contrast of the images that must be quite strong to work good with the lights on the stage.

Here you can see the flyer of the show. For more info and tickets follow the link of the Garaman Hall theater. So to all of you who will be in Okinawa on the 21st or 22nd July, come to see it! It will be a great show, in the romantic scenery of the Rhein river with live music, dancing, acting and my illustrations!

Okinawa arrivo!!!

I have some big news!!!

On the 7th June I will go to Okinawa for about 2 months, that’s my first art residency and I am so happy that will be in the wonderful island in the south-south-south of Japan, as a Sicilian I kind of feel connected to Okinawa…SOUTH ISLANDS POWER!!!

I am honored to take part to a great theater project with my illustrations, and collaborate with great people there to create the scenography. I am so excited and looking forward to being there.

The show will be in the end of July in the Garaman Hall of Ginoza. I will post more details about it very soon.

And now let’s come back to work!

GANBARIMASU!!!

I came back full of new ideas and energy to immerse myself in my new projects! Now it is a count down to Bologna Children’s Book Fair, I’m working on couple of new books and I will update the progress here and on my social networks.
