(In)formal request:
What about the Aston Martin Lagonda?
It has an extremely stylish, IMO still unique design.

Do you ever draw wildlife, like whales, deer, elk, just to mention a few?
If I had the gift of drawing and/or playing a musical instrument (the piano) I wouldn't do anything else.

Yes, I will draw the Lagonda. The old one, right?

Not yet :). I just did that picture of the crocodile on the previous page.

Yes, the old one, thank you!
When the Lagonda came out (In illo tempore), it was a jaw-dropper and frankly, I still find its line outright "majestic".

You did a great job on the crocodile, but I think they are enormously scary. I would suggest you try your hand at whales. After all, they live off the coast(s?) of North America. As far as I know, one would not find them in the Mediterranean...

You mentioned Spanish in a previous post. A few days ago I met a few young doctors with their mum from Brazil. I like the sounds of Portuguese from Portugal even more. It has some special, very beautiful sounds that are not to be found - as far as I know - in other European languages. The grammar is very similar to the Spanish framework. I may repeat myself (too lazy to look up my old posts), but when learning Latin, Greek, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese - and also French, although it uses personal pronouns, it is a good idea to have a special eye for the verb. In those languages the verb is much more "in command" than in, let's say, English. (If your dad or your mum happens to be a comparative linguistic scholar, just ignore what I wrote, hahaha :):):):) ...)

Talking about Spanish, did I provide this link? (I use this course, trying my hand at Indonesian and Swahili):

Mind you, the fact that the tutor's pronunciation of English is not flawless, is a plus.

I will definitely draw the Lagonda :D.
Any particular species of whale?
I take Latin as my language course.

Thank you.
As for the whales, any of the big big guys would do, i.e. Eubalaena australis, glacialis or japonica (do not know the English names). Ever since I was a child I have been intrigued by the fact that such enormous animals had whalebone to seeve plancton out of the water.

Talking about Latin, every year on (1-)2 November I get the clear sensation Italy goes back to (pre-)Roman times, as the people go in masses to visit the tombs of their dear ones. On the Roman catholic calendar that day is dedicated to the memory of the deceased, but - it seems to me - it is so deeply rooted, that it goes back to times way earlier than the arrival of christianity at Italy's shores.
I live in rural Southern Italy where it is especially strong. As a missed cultural anthropologist, I take great delight in observing this deeply-felt aspect of Mediterranean culture..

Thanks a lot!

- Is the portrait an autoritratto del pittore (self-portrait of the master)?

- Sorry for being so ignorant, but eh ... what supercar is number three?

Corvette ZR-1.

Haha, that isn't me. Its a portrait of a famous DJ, TheFatRat. Look him up on YouTube. One warning though; his music is veeery catchy.
