Cosa mi ha insegnato il mio primo #INKtober


InkTober è ormai un appuntamento annuale per moltissimi disegnatori, così quest’anno dopo diverse edizioni passate da spettatrice ho deciso di mettermi alla prova. Complice il personale cambiamento di rotta e la voglia di cimentarsi a colpi di disegni quotidiani sui social, ho così iniziato un sfida che sta diventando un vero e proprio progetto personale a lungo termine.

La Catrina goes to University (again)!


Hello folks! I am very excited to share with you my upcoming class at the MUW – Mississippi University for Women as a drawing instructor and mentor!

Featured // Winning proposal for “Ruins from the future” Contest

A contemporary factory of culture”  promoted by [im]possible Living for the FuoriSalone of Milan’s Design Week (April 2013). AbacO, a collective of young architects, took the move from the activity developed for [im]possible Living to talk about the abandon of buildings in big cities, and more to think about the impact of human action […]
