Who dreamed of magic lottery sheets all day long.

With the most beautiful hands he had ever seen
Ze bewogen haastig over een berg papier
While she looked him straight in the eyes without fear

Vrienden hadden haar afgezet onder die boom

They had come here together from far away Rome.
Ze had alles uitgegeven, iedere cent;

You will be touched when you see Seydou's wonderful photos with the beauty of his people, their dignity and the love he had for them.

Er ligt misschien net zoveel troep op de straat,
Als in al onze kranten geschreven staat,
Als in schokkende taal die wordt uitgekraamt,
Als in de persoon die zich nergens voor schaamt.

Il carnevale triste

Una Dormita Lunga

A Rio de Janeiro
Sul Monte Corcovado
Joao - bruco brasileiro
Si trovò in mezzo al guado

Volle ballar la samba
Al prossimo carnevale
Ma sua ottava gamba
Faceva troppo male

Exotic - Illustration Friday

Exotic (I hope not toxic; neither prehistoric)

...Well, too bad I started late on this cartoon so now it is published with the 'Prehistoric' topic in Illustration Friday.
Poor thing hardly is prehistoric but he is: 'Exotic', with exotic fruit!
I did not finish the drawing the way it is supposed to be so I will post an up-date soon!

Children at work

This is a collage I won a lovely prize with in 2001 (Premio Gioielleria Simionato at Umorismo e Satira in Dolo, Italy) .
Only now I finally got round at finishing the foot-balls the way I wanted to so it has become a mixed-media cartoon :)
