A friend of mine was the first to notice it.
He said: "Milano is on the verge...!"
After him many other people have started to realize it and now such truth has become common wisdom among us citizens.
The city itself seems to have become aware of it's being in such an uncorfotable position.
Scientists and theologians agree that possible solutions are on the wings of its pigeons.

Have you ever noticed that once shoe laces would wear out and break and we simply had to get new ones, while today it often happens that strings long outlive shoes they belong to?
How comes we are getting used to such abuses of our consumers' rights?

Some big thoughts that might have changed history, but never were recorded and left no obvious traces behind, nevetheless deserve to be mentioned here.

Let's start with Elvis and his speculations on electronics and the future of house appliances.

In order to catch a glimpse of these thought we suggest to take a deep breath and concentrate on the image for about one minute.
If no trace of Elvis' thought comes into one's mind, the experiment has been successful confirming the fact that his Big Thoughts on electronics are definitely gone with him.

Oh oh... who's that and what's he doing here in my illustration?
Today it's been Stefano Misesti's and Beni's wedding day and Maciste couldn't keep from showing up even though this is not his creator's blog.
Can anyone blame him for this?
The problem is that according to the international laws on copyrights I might and will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law, even though it's not my fault if this uninvited guest has appeared from behind the horizon.
Please visit me in jail when you can. Oranges are well accepted.

By the way Beni and Stefano: congratulations to you.

GIM - Genetically Improved Man 1

Everyone knows that in the future genetic engineering will lead to any direction that anyone could possibly imagine today; may that be considered morally acceptable or contravening any religious or ethical standard we may think of, it just will happen.
Therefore I start today to give my humble contribution with some occasional "dibujillos", sketches, to help future generations of genetic engineers figure out how to spend their funds on researches directed to reach the Holy Grail of science: the creation of tomorrow's Man or more simply, the GIM - Genetically Improved Man.

Let's start today with Improvement number 1: the Hand-Nose transfer improvement. It basically greatly improves today's sniffing capabilities, sneezing potentials and deep-digging possibilities.
It's my idea, therefore don't even think to get it patented.

Let's make some cheap poetry here:
"Music of the future
Music of the past
When it's time for tea
One listens to the best
One likes this
One picks up that
One two three...
This rhythm is good for me."

This means that illustration and poetry don't always match and sometimes, rather than doing something one was not born to do, it's probably better to go and take a shower.

One more illustration for Anadema, supercoifferurs in Milano. Will they ever forgive?

Here'a a "Magrittade", an illustration clearly inspired by Mister Master Magritte. It strangely doesn't deal with cardboxes or dirty socks, but surprisingly with the abuse and misuse of something else. As you can see, the man in the picture is not fully aware of what's happening above him and one may guess that little trace of this experience will thus be remembered.

A work made for Carthusia Edizioni (Milano) and Coop Lombardia. Thank you for this opportunity.

He Was He Who Is Without Sin, Therefore He Used To Throw The First Stone, Often Also The Second, Then The Third And So On. Sometimes He Would Throw Them From The Overpass...


"When I have the money, I'm going to buy some land, so when it rains I can play with mud..."

Dedicated to a Belisario friend of mine who is going to get Married next week (but in Taipei, not in New York). To him my best wishes to be able to play with mud whenever he likes.

Fortunately, it's an estabilished tradition to celebrate the ending of the year with the election of a symbol for the (almost) past twelve months. This year's Ear of the Year is this ear here.
It's been unanimously elected after an obviously exhausting selection process which has forced our representatives to scrutinize ears on five continents and innumerable archipelagos.
Among the 666 finalists this ear was finally spotted in the plains near Megiddo. Congratulations from the jurors and Happy New Ear of the Year.
