New York 2016

July-August 2016 | A creative travel. Diary

Summer 2016.

I took the decision to travel alone to USA for purpose of work on a big illustration/poetry project. I realized that to start this project, the most important I made so far,  I needed the feeling to be out and far from all I know, running away from the comfort of my home.

By chance and luck I could stay in Brooklyn and live one month and a half as a real new yorker, going to authentic places, living the daily life in the neighborhood, meeting incredible people magically and curiously connected with my project and with what I was looking for in New York.


It was really a great time. I took all the inspiration and good vibes I could. The project evolved so fast (soon I can tell more) and the best, a big door stays open in NY.
