busy week


Amish Coldhands




Flash Mc enroe




Pumpkin Love


I am trying to have everything ready before the departure for italy (this sunday), but I have tons of things to sew yet...those two up there were made this afternoon, the first one is called Amish Coldhands. he has this superhuge wings/hands that you cannot really see in this picture..I am quite sadisfied with the fabrics combination and the eyes.. the other one is called Flash Mc enroe, he is kind of a nu-electro licantrope superhero wannabe...

Lately I am really into hokkaido pumpkin, I love the vegetables of this season..tonight we had pumpkin risotto, and yesterday it was this plate pictured above: plain basmati rice, scrambled tofu with black seseme seeds and red pepper, with roasted diced hokkaido with red onions and coriander, superyummy!!!

Post Zuni




grazie a tutte le persone che sono state allo Zuni lo scorso weekend!!! che figata!!
(se per caso avete delle foto della serata mi mandate qcs per favore?)

I am working on some new monsters that maybe are going to ferrara again...last weekend there was my first "solo monster show" in this place called Zuni in Ferrara, italy..(the art show was a collateral event of this festival for Internazionale, an italian magazine that collects articles from the worldwide press).
too bad that I couldn't be there, but Nicola, the curator, was supernice and he kept me in contact with almost live reportages via email, letting me know that there was a lot of people interested and that almost all of my Les MOnstrìs have been kidnapped*...so I will probably have to send some new ones because tha show is intended to stay until the beginning of november!!!!
woOoOoO O ooohOOoOOOOoooO! that was such a nice surprise for me!! I couldn't believe it!!
I hope I could get some pictures of the show to post here...

a weekend away

Siska



Monster Tree

a long weekend away from my sewing machine, my computer, away from the city. I think I needed that, even if I really like my current daily routine...
I haven't been seeing my family for a while now, so it was nice to stay home a bit. we went on the mountains where we have a little old house that belong to my grand mother Nonna Silvia. the weather was nice and I walked around the woods with our dog Siska. (I miss oh so much having a pet...). We were also looking for good mushrooms to eat with polenta, but the only ones I could find were those beautiful and poisoning amanitas. Instead I found this beautiful Monster Tree, and I was astonished!
now I am back in berlin and I have to find my rythm with sewing again. there are a lot of different project that I want to carry on with, I only have to organize my stuff a little bit better. uh, by the way, I have a new studio (at home), I will be posting some pictures soon!
