During October and November 2007, I was lucky enough to stay in the town of Cortona, Italy. It was one of the best times of my life. I ate well, I slept well and made wonderful friends. If drawing is a part of life, then perhaps a good life leads to good drawing.

Here are several drawings I made while I was there.
