My sister just said that she’s going to be sad when I leave because she doesn’t have anyone that she can talk to the way she talks with me.
Really being back in New York has me just away from reality. It is good and bad…good because I needed a break from how I was feeling and bad because by the end of the month it’s going to be over and I probably will feel shittier than I felt in the beginning.

Beppe Giacobbe (Italy)
Beppe Giacobbe graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Milan and then continued his studies in New York at the School of Visual Arts. Although eventually returning to Milan, Beppe’s palette reflects the lights of his beloved homeland of Sicily. Beppe’s work is regularly winning awards in all the major U.S. and Italian annuals. Beppe is especially pleased that United Airlines currently includes his work in their illustrated campaigns; his imagery has regularly been on Travelsmith catalog covers; and his award winning graphic author portraits are covers for Rizzoli’s classics. Beppe loves illustrating children’s books… his depictions of city noises for Clang Clang!, was just published by Simon & Schuster. Aside from illustrating, Beppe enjoyed 12 years of teaching at the European Institute of Design and always makes time for sculpting from knick-knacks and pieces of wood he finds along his walks.
