Wrap Vol.1-5



This project is complete madness for a couple of reasons.

First of all, nobody cares about robots anymore. I'm perfectly aware of that. But, simply, I don't care! These robots from the 80'es have been my role models when I was a kid, they practically forged my childhood and are part of who I am. I'm not going to betray them just because they're not "cool" anymore!
Besides, they are cool, at least in our Robot Madness version.

The second reason is that starting in August 2018, the plan was (and still is) to do an homage to all the robots of Japanese animation, one by one, and post them every Monday on FB. This is not at all a piece of cake, japanese robots are so many it's even difficult to count them. But that's it, this is the extent of our passion.

Again, this is a collaboration with one of my friends and talented colleagues. 
When I first proposed to Riccardo Ruggine Pieruccini to color his amazing robot linearts, it started as a tryout, just to see what could happen. But I knew that I was not going to let a tryout die without changing it into a real project, with deadlines, a precise goal, and all the professional stuff that doesn't allow anything to be "for fun" anymore.
I reckon I'm like that. I'm not able to enjoy the act of drawing if I don't have a precise goal in mind for what I'm doing. I have to transform everything into something stressful -sigh-

For that precise reason, we're exploring different kinds of applications for these illustrations:

  • an encyclopedia of books, divided into different categories.
    You can find it here (ITA only): Robot Madness volumes
  • REDBUBBLE page, in which you can find all kinds of products to decorate your house with (I love the pillows and the mugs!!)
  • live streaming sessions on my TWITCH page.

In the very end, do I enjoy coloring these pieces? 

Oh, boy if I do.
