IF... Duet

Italy, the land of opera duets! Violetta and Alfredo in Verdi's Traviata, Puccini's Turandot and Prince Calaf, the exhilarating cats duet by Rossini and many, many others. This is my personal interpretation of this week's topic: it is a sort of intellectual duet, in a timeless setting a man and a woman are sharing some secret we are not allowed to know and behind them, in the dark background, a little window over the things to come...


  1. You've captured the mood of the opera and the larger theme as well.

  2. It feels so dramatic and moody!

IF... Rainbow

Just a quick sketch for this week Illustration Friday challenge while I'm trying to gather the ideas for my next book project, the illustrations for a children's story written by Nicholas Goh. It is unlikely you will be able to grow such rainbow of colors in your own garden, but maybe you could easily manage to get a blue elephant to water your plants. Sketching is often a matter of thought association: the perplexed cactuses brought to my mind the book "the secret life of plants" a weird research by Peter Tompkin and Christopher Bird, edited in 1973, which introduced the intriguing idea of plants having their own emotional life as well as their own form of communication.

IF... Cat

What one has to do to escape the rage of two fighting plants! To avoid being involved in this weird boxing match our hero has no better idea than putting on a cat costume and hide himself under the table... Will the plants find him after the knock out?

IF... Tension

A frightening tension is breaking the air, who has stolen Mrs Spring???
