My name is Piccia Neri and I am an Italian graphic designer. I usually live in London with two cats.

I initially started this blog with the burning ambition of posting one drawing a day, in beautiful sketchbooks hand-made by myself, sewn into hard-back covers that I would wrap in lovely rice paper. That lasted for over five months, which in my view is impressive enough. But it soon became untenable, especially because even just making the sketchbooks could take a couple of evenings. In fact I was so stressed out by the whole thing that it put me off drawing altogether, which was totally self-defeating and a bit silly, really.
So I have now taken a more realistic stance. This is a drawing blog, period. I am now trying to keep up the one-drawing-a-day habit but if I can’t, tant pis. This is also great because it gives me a chance to re-visit old sketchbooks and publish old drawings that I like. So that’s what I’m going to do. And thanks for the visit.
