Back from Italy

Walking in Corniglia

Amy and I just returned home after two weeks in Italy.  Our friends Ben and Shadi of Gallery Nucleus (pictured above) met up with us during our second week.  During our stay, we visited Milan, Rome, Lucca, Pisa, Como, the Cinque Terre, and Venice.  We had an amazing time, and we took a lot of wonderful pictures.  Amy’s been working steadily to post them onto flickr, so we’ll have more detailed posts with more pictures and videos soon.  We took quite a few on this trip.

In the meantime, I’d like to thank our hosts at ReNoir Comics, who are publishing the Italian editions of Sorcerers & Secretaries and Daisy Kutter.  Giovanni and Rosanna Ferrario (seated in the center in the picture below) were incredibly gracious hosts, and I was so happy to meet such great people working in the comics field abroad.  Michele Foschini (with black shirt in picture below) was our wonderful guide, acting as translator and food connoisseur during the first half of our trip.  He had to wear many hats and he worked frenetically to make sure we were having a good time.  Our travel partner for the first half of the trip, Tracy Butler, creator of Lackadaisy, was also great to spend time with.  Her work is amazing and she’s a very intelligent artist, so I’m looking forward to seeing more of her comics in the future.

Thank you so much everyone! I hope to see you all again soon.  More Italy posts coming up…

The food was amazing!
