The Bread with the color of the Fox's Tale

I was inspired to illustrate the cover for Miyoko Matsutani wonderful book:
"The Bread with the color of the Fox's Tale". Is not so famous as "The Adventures of Taro in the Country of Mountains", but is one of my favorite stories from childhood!

Cover for "No One Writes To The Colonel", G. G. Marquez

One of my favourite writers. How not to illustrate some of his novels? :)

"The following Friday he went down to the launches again. And, as on every Friday, he returned home without the longed-for letter. ‘We’ve waited long enough,’ his wife told him that night. ‘One must have the patience of an ox, as you do, to wait for a letter for fifteen years.’ The colonel got into his hammock to read the newspapers.
‘We have to wait our turn,’ he said. ‘Our number is 1823.’"

Let it snow!!

This illustration was made 12 months ago and it was really a lot of snow here..
hope I'll have an inspiration to make another for this year..:-)

When little ones ask where from come the snow we try to explain it. My grandfather was "sure" about - the snow comes from a big-big sky pillow ..:-)) ..nice story for a bright Christmas.

Cantucci & coffee

The last recipe made for TDAC as self promotion..this is an old italian recipe of biscotti that usually was served in weekends or at weddings at the end of the meal..but with wine. And as in the mornings one espresso is better than wine, I prefer to drink often my coffee with 1,2,3....cantucci :)
