Cargo 2016 Calendar
Between the projects I was involved into in the last months there is this illustration for the 2016 Calendar by the comics collective Cargo. Everyone had to draw a single illustration portaying the "recipe of the month" taken from the menù of the Bar Lucio, where the collective is used to meet. The intent was to do an omage to the town of Mistretta, the sicilian hometown of Lucio Iraci, the bar owner. I chose april's recipe "Conchiglie fave e cozze" (Conchiglie, a type of pasta, with broad beans and mussels). I thought of april as a month with a love vibe and decided to portray a love scene on the lunch table. Specifically a multi-culinary kiss scene, between a Conchiglia and a Mussel, that causes sympathy and scandal at the same time. In the background the face of a Mistretta's sculpture watchs the action with impotent indifference.
