MY SISTER SAYS…

Too IntelligentI’ve never thought about that but my sister seems to be a good inspiration for my comic strips.
I guess this is because no matter how hard I try, she seldom likes my humor and even if she tries to be nice with me, the words she uses make her thoughts obvious.

And her attempts to hide the truth of her thinking is SO obvious I am starting to find them funny. Every time she makes a comment on my strips I think This could be excellent material for a new one!
Short on comic material? Hey Sis, what do you think about this drawing? And BOOM, here we have a cool new strip!

I’m actually thinking about a series called My Sister Says 🙂

Only problem now is that I have too much material and not enough time!

INSPIRATIONAL YOGA 3

Bartolo Yoga3-01

This is the third comic inspired by my yoga classes.
I have others in my sleeve, but I guess you are getting the point: yoga is painful, despite what people make us believe on TV.

I draw them using Adobe Illustrator.

Here the dialogue says:

– Since I do yoga I notice more the small things like flowers and grass…
– Muscular fever?
– I wish I were dead.

INSPIRATIONAL YOGA 2

Bartolo Yoga2-01

This is the second comic strip inspired by my painful yoga classes. I usually work in English but these ones ended up being in Italian (my native language.

In this strip the character loosely inspired by me talks to a batender.

The dialogue reads:

– Today I took my first yoga class. There are some positions that make you loose your senses.

– Because of the meditation?

– Because they hurt.

I am drawing these strips with Adobe Illustrator.

INSPIRATIONAL YOGA

Bartolo YogaLately I have started a yoga course that triggered my creativity.
Have you ever seen that image with a circle stating YOUR COMFORT ZONE, and then a dot far away stating HERE IS WHERE THE FUN BEGINS?
It’s actually true: doing something new (and unbelievably painful) can really help to find new ideas.

So I started drawing how painful is doing yoga, and here’s the result.
To do these comic strips I used Adobe Illustrator.

Here is this character loosely inspired by me.
The subtitle reads:

How I see myself when I do yoga
…and how others see me.
