I’ve been thinking about this project for months, so I finally started working on it during Inktober 2018, and it’s an ongoing project.

It’s inspired by little stone houses unique to italian Alps’ woods, now abandoned and surrounded by nature.

I spent a lot of my childhood in those woods, I still go there sometimes and always have the same feelings of mystery and surprise.


Every illustration was made in mixed media (acrylic, watercolors, colored pencils and ball pens).

Thanks for watching!
