Last month I had the pleasure of meeting the Illustrator, Dania Piotti for the first time in person. That’s correct, Author met Illustrator. Sounds like a cheesy Lifetime Movie!? Actually, it was for a good reason. Dania had the wonderful opportunity of debuting her adult art at a great gallery in Prescott, Arizona….Ian Russell Gallery of Fine Art (another great friend of mine). It was an amazing event! Loads of fun, great people and a wonderful experience!
I’ve known Dania for roughly three years now, I must say meeting her in person was a pure delight. I was fortunate enough to spend a few days with her, chat her ear off, annoy the crap out of her (along with my wife ) and learn about an entirely different world – the world of art (this coming from a guy that has issues drawing a stick figure…yet has no issues writing a haiku about poop #truestory). Ironic enough as it may be, she brought Lil Boo to life in both stories and in real life she won him over!! Yes, Dania is #lilboo approved I look forward to crossing paths down the road someday soon, enjoying a triple wet cappuccino!
Most of you may recognize her children’s art decor line CariBimbi. Her adult work is VERY impressive, and quite frankly I’m in awe of it, as always – along with probably being her #1 fan. You may see more of her work on DaniaPiotti.com or if you are in Prescott, swing by Ian Russell’s gallery downtown and pick up a few pieces of art. ~tell them Daddy Bookins sent you…
