Keeping up with my 2018’s born tradition, I followed up the birth of my second little girl by writing a song, recording a tune and drawing my baby in her mummy’s arms.
Pretty keen on my new creative project, I started writing the first lines two weeks in and quickly realised I needed to pause, and let moments and leaps happen to go beyond writing an entire song about a newborn.

I experimented illustrating using the iPad Pro/Apple Pencil/Procreate combo for a little while now, loved the control I get over each single pixels, the natural feel of the pencil pressure, the lovely palm rejection, meaning that I can get really close to express my full sketching skillset on a digital piece of glass.
It took me a good few weeks to allow myself to write down about my latest illustration project, to reconnect with the reasons behind a very personal but surely universal representation of what progress can do. Progress because of determination. Determination because of passion. Passion because of love. Love because it’s included in the base package of all human being.
