( w h i s p e r i n g ) ::: "K'é Turuq"

A long time ago, I met a tremendously inspiring bard, who I was considering, you know, way too talented, compared with me, to ask him any sort of collaboration like, you know, maybe an animation, having me as drawer and him as musician.
(What a dreamlike match!!!)

Another long time ago again, but then less long, this tremendously inspiring bard told me that, well, he was considering me way too talented, compared with him… but that, well, maybe, perhaps, you know… well, he told me he was thinking about doing something together – like, you know, maybe an animation, having me as drawer and him as musician.
(What a dreamlike match!!!)

So that's how, since those days on, I and Sir Felipe Iturrieta started our own very peculiar way for this short movie.
There are many reasons which are making so long our creative process and many are simply practical, like jobs, travels and projects, but there are two different ones, which are totally worthing this unexpected slow rhythm.
The first one is that our screenplay did need a serious deep cultural research and elaboration, indeed I may already picture how new discoveries will influence again the backgrounds and the whole design, which are still in progress.
The second reason is completely about the inspiration and the method. It happened that we were coming back to our subject, to our screenplay, to our character designs, sometimes after long pauses, and since we both don't have good memories at all, often we have been literally blow-minded by our own ideas (yes!), which we kept forgetting every time! This may look just freakish and absolutely nonfunctional, but, after the months were passing by and I was partly sad of not working continuously on this, we found out and had to admit that this weird way was creating, every time, a new blank space in which trip in and freely fantasise. Some of our favourite ideas actually came from those dynamics – and those dynamics have been (and will be) funny and wonderful in a way that, once again, makes already the process itself extremely interesting and magic.

We are now at the storyboard step (and keeping our eyes open for potential collaborators or co-production). The following drawings are mine, but we arrived together at them, sketching a lot and sharpening the concepts in our psychedelic dance.

…Mermaids & pirates, I'm very pleased to introduce to you the first glimpses from our animated short movie, K'é Turuq.


Study for the tarot card of the Justice (as vision); we represented like the Libra,
which is its correspondant card among the Italian deck of the Minchiate.

Love & light & much inspiration,
