You might or might not have seen my work before. Here's some links to get you oriented: http://www.hennauoti.com/
I'm starting at the beautiful Angel Academy of Art in few months. I took a quick look around CA and noticed a general friendliness and interest towards learning basic representational art skills. I'm not planning on starting another Angel Academy CA thread - my friend Dorian already does it so well here. I have promised many people that I'd keep them updated with my news and projects and thought a cozy little blog might be just how to do it. So if you feel like it and think you've got some time, go and check it out. I hope to be able to update quite regularly when in Florence.
As for Florence, the school starts at 29th September. I'm planning to arrive there a week or so before the school starts and spend the remaining time looking for apartment and meeting new people. So if you know you are going to Florence next Fall (you perhaps study in one of the 3 ateliers), give me a shout and we can meet for a coffee!
I just registered, so I'm feeling little scared and newbie here. I'm sorry I don't yet have any works from school that I could use to attract you, but as I said I'm only just starting.
