One of the few commissions I did while at LUCCA COMICS and GAMES '11 in Italy.
The event itself was so much to take in, I think I was pretty much overwhelmed from the first day. I had a marvelous time with all of my friends who served as my hosts both on and off the convention floor - Alessandro Vitti, Elia Bonetti and Alessandro Micelli (all of whom are formidable artists in their own right). And a very special, 'I couldn't have done it without you' thanks goes to
for taking such great care of me and my buddy Jason Schachter while we were in Parma (a LOVELY little town where we ate the best ham you'll ever eat in your life) and while we were in Lucca.
If you've never experienced this convention for yourself, I promise you that it'll be well-worth your time and trip. Seriously - you won't be sorry. As a matter of fact, I wish I could go back right now.
PS - I love gelato.
