“Never before have creatives had so much economic power”

Lilla and I had the best time today on the Twitter chat #dwylalchemy.  The chat was hosted by Beth Kempton of Do What You Love’s , a part of the Alchemy series.  Lilla received a lot of really great questions and it was a very engaging conversation.

She gave all sorts of inspirational and valuable advice!  Lilla shared this profound statement with us, “An artist is someone who makes art. The end.” For the full recap check it out here on storify:

Coffee, Crayons, and Art

This morning at our weekly all-Staff meeting, Joanne brought in brand new packs of crayons for all of us.  It’s been proven that smelling crayons relieves stress and lowers blood pressure.

Marco’s coloring book hits Venice bookstands!

Hi Lilla!

My ‘Venice Coloring Book’ is finally out!  It features a couple of winged lion cubs exploring Venice, my beautiful hometown. The winged lion is the symbol of  St. Mark, the Patron of Venice, and of the ‘Serenissima Repubblica’. It is featured on an ancient flag and marble lions are just everywhere here. A truly fun project!!
