"To keep an illustrated journal is fun. I like that moment when I'm perfectly concentrated on what I see in front of me. I always draw real places or events and I usually describe something while it is happening. I rarely draw from memory. I very seldom use a loose piece of paper: a canvas or a sheet of watercolor paper intimidate me much more than a book. A book means a sequence of pages, where there is no single masterpiece, but the whole group of drawings does matter. Naples, where I've lived for 15 years, offers a huge repertoire of curious and interesting things to draw, and drawing is always a good reason to explore a city. I wish I had more time to do it. Meanwhile, I draw everything I can see from my windows, like this house in front of my kitchen."
