Associazione Illustratori at WOW: an evening of meeting Italian illustrators

I had a fun evening here in Milan, Italy. Although, Milan has been having ‘the coldest week in 30 years’. It is colder than New York, how is this possible?
BUT, to have talks and questions and answers session with members of Associazione Illustratori was interesting and fruitful.
I was on the panel with friend and extremely talented Alessandro Gottardo (SHOUT).
Some unexpected nice surprise from the night was seeing the original Guido Crepax and Hugo Pratt (both famous Italian comic artists) on the wall right where I was sitting, and the best pizza I have ever had in a local pizza parlor.
Thank you Paolo Rui for organizing this fantastic evening.
Milan, you are cold, but really warm at heart.
