The Venice Chronicles

Posted By yonghow on November 7th, 2008

This arrived in my mail shortly before I left for Singapore to attend Freedom’s screening at the Animation Nation 2008 – Pixar storyboard artist and SketchCrawl founder Enrico Casarosa’s The Venice Chronicles. I haven’t had time at all to take a good look at it…till now !  What a beautiful book…thanks Enrico !

(Below) A personal touch : Enrico’s own caricature and autograph on the front page.

The Venice Chronicles is a travelogue of Enrico’s trip to the mesmerizing city, illustrated in gorgeous watercolors and pencil. The book comes in a sturdy, white hardcover bound, with 144 pages of artwork.

Get your copy of The Venice Chronicles here !

Enrico also sent me a copy of the artbook from the highly sucessful Totoro Forest Project, I’ll post some pictures from it soon.

I like the humor in Enrico’s biographical stories. I recall reading his sketch crawl episodes online and have been looking forward to the Venice Chronicles since he announced. Luckily, I managed to order the version with a watercolor book plate 🙂

I am still waiting for my book to arrive and good to know it is looking nice.

They are great works ,somehow the style and concept are very familiar to me with Miyazaki-san’s DAY DREAM note book 😉
