Spider Man's Drawing Request And A Look Back On Nemoland 2009

Today, I do a double-post or a two parts entry of sorts.

Part one: Fellow colleague and good friend Francisco Herrera (Spider Man, Superman) asked me do a very own pin-up drawing on one of his characters for his next book. And here's the fruit, the ACME Wondermotorbra 3000D-T (coming with a built-in tea cooking feature):

I really do like space around the characters, much space. The original background I painted was that size:

Part two: A look back on Nemoland 2009 in pictures

This is the Nemoland Award 2009 statue I got from the Accedemia Nemo, wonderfully rendered by the fabulous Paolo Chiari:

Fellow animator and comic artist Flaviano Armentaro and me in the Palazzo Medici Riccardi, Sala Luca Giordano. Fab' place, absolutely. This was, btw, the very place where they gave me the dragon statue:

Some pics from the exhibition in the Gipsoteca Fiorentina will follow. I'm still stunned by the appeal and the impact of this very spot. It was indeed a magic place to let my ducks 'n' critters out...
