Take a stroll through the side streets and sail the canals of Venice in this colourful graphic novel, meeting at the intersection between Carnet De Voyage and Love Story. Enrico Casarosa lives with his wife and newborn daughter in beautiful San Francisco; he's been working in the animation industry for more than ten years, drawing storyboards for feature films.
A story artist at Pixar Animation Studios, he finds folds of time to keep personal projects going: drawing silly autobiographical comics, making illustrations for exhibitions, designing art books and keeping up with his blog. Whenever possible he escapes on a trip with a trusty sketchbook and a set of watercolours. The Venice Chronicles is a travelogue in pencil, watercolour, and varying shades of silliness.
