Finally, the rain that has been continuous all week seems to have stopped, or at least gives us a break. Milano is colder now than in the winter so a perfect time to keep working on the 10 Corso Como book.  Like the rain, the pages seem an endless pastime to cut and paste together – endless because I am never happy,

and of course because 10 Corso Como is never finished.
Everybody now is using only their computers to do graphics but for my personal aesthetic I need scissors, tape, and pencils to feel and explore. I enjoy the manual process of it. Never mind if they all smile at me…old style? Or artisan?

Sunday, my desk is in the Huntington Park  in Pasadena California. The reason to be here is the opening of Figaro at the Walt Disney Hall in Los Angeles with costumes designed by Azzedine Alaïa – I admit a long way to travel for an opera, but I could not miss seeing the Alaïa designs  for this new expression in his work.  And they were clearly wonderful.  Reds and Whites that worked with and played off of the sets of Jean Nouvel.  A memorable evening and worth the journey.
