This is one of those moments in which I feel proud of my work.
I am genuinely glad of being part of this album with my drawings (the drawing above is one of those included in the album DIVISI by @alotlikebirds ). I had the chance to virtually meet @santinofranzino when he thought of me for the cover of his solo album (under the name of Alone), and from that moment on, there has always been an utter mutual respect between us, which is not always likely to happen…
To me, this boy who literally closed himself off in the woods to make his music while loading up the stove to try and keep warm, was absolutely extraordinary.
I used to imagine him in front of the fire, trying out those chords while fighting against damp and cold, and it used to make me smile.
This is one of the great opportunities that my profession gives me: to be able to get to know people that I could have never even imagined 15 years ago, when I didn’t think at all that drawing could become my job.
I have always thought that talent alone is not enough; whenever I have felt intrigued by somebody it was because in what that person was doing I have always sensed the smell of sleepless nights, mad obsessions and the courage to take the game on as if it was a huge adventure every time.
With this post I want to deeply thank A Lot Like Birds for making me sense this very same smell again, through all the passion and determination they put in this record, a solid and genuine one.
Thank you guys, most sincerely, for asking me to be part of it.
