Back home

It's so good to be home. A lot has happened since Kazu and I left for our trip, most notably we elected a new president. All I'll say is, Thank You.

Italy was wonderful. It's a beautiful place, rich with history. There's so much to see and think about, our biggest mistake was trying to pack too much into the time we were there. We didn't get to see Florence, but it just gives me more reason to want to go back.

We took so many pictures (too many pictures?) that it took me a whole week to post them all up on flickr in between coloring Amulet pages. I finally finished last night, and here's our photostream:

Week One - Milan, Rome, Lucca, Pisa
Week Two - Milan, Lake Como, Cinque Terra, Venice


It was pretty crazy! But worth it. I feel both Kazu and I learned a lot, and we walk away from this trip more excited than ever about what we do.

Thank you to Renoir Comics' Michele Foschini for his tireless guidance throughout the trip, Giovanni and Rosanna Ferrario for their gracious hosting and for inviting us to come along with them to Lucca in the first place, and to our fellow travelling artist Tracy Butler for sharing her creative spirit with us. I hope this won't be the last time we all see each other!
