A song from when we were young

This was a beautiful scene on the Metro B line heading north towards Policlinico in late October.  These three in a row - the boy - probably 13 or so, singing an old Italian pop song and the two old folks, the man looking like he was seeing something many years ago that he missed dearly - the woman with a little smile playing across her face, perhaps with happy memories of a younger time.

King Felix

was reading Phillip K. Dick's "VALIS" and this is what happened.  My image of Horselover Fat's King Felix.  The Empire never ended.

Bits of my daily life in Rome...

"Cautious Optimism" The 2012 New Years Card

A belated posting of this year's New Years card.  Letterpress printed by yours truly on a Chandler & Price platen press at the International Printing Museum.  The image was drawn in pen and ink, scanned, and etched into a magnesium plate for printing.  Part of my "Cautious Optimism" series of cards, it responds to the unrest of the past year while hoping that we can, you know, all just get along.  Of course, I couldn't help a bit of sarcasm - I'd rather it isn't shopping that brings us together, but hey, its better than nothing...

Downloaded the CS6 Beta and have been using it for daily work, so thought I'd try something a bit more figurative with it.  No photo reference, just my brain.  It started as a larger drawing that got cropped down as I worked.
