It started as a little funny sketch about my two Italian grandmothers to use on my cooking blog (yeah, who doesn´t have a cooking blog?), and it turned out to be one of the characters I mostly love to draw. I used to draw Nonna using Micron pens, but as soon as I started dabbling with watercolour, I realized this was the perfect media for her.

She is a silent character, very focused on good food and nice moments. She brings me closer to my two late grandmothers and the place from where my family originally came.
