Hi! I'm an Italian freelance illustrator, at the moment living in Mexico City. I work with magazines by mail, mostly for USA, Italia, and Mexico. I work in mixed media traditional plus digital program.

Some time ago I shared some of my works with you. Now I present the new illustrations that I made in the years after the first post.

Some were made on commission for magazines and others are personal work.

I think it's more about the pharmaceutical industry here in the US. No regulation over pricing + capitalism ends people dying because they can't afford ridiculously priced medication.

my baby had to be operated at 7 months. I did not spend a single euro on it. the money comes from the taxes I and others pay every year. I'm so glad my taxes will pay for other babies and old/ sick people in the future. That's why I llike our french healthcare system (even if it's not perfect). In america, I can't begin tio imagine what I sould have collected to pay that kind of operation!

Unless you have good insurance, there is no way you can afford your meds. And your life may depend on those meds. "Should I pay the rent this month, or pick up my meds?"

I hate how true this is. Personally, I think if this is the choice we need a third. Legal medical suicide. If a man would rather end his life and collect on his life insurance in order to not drive his family into poverty they never knew, that should be his right.

My immediate association for this pic was something else - I felt like society has sunk low enough to the point that a person would watch with a bored face a reality TV show ( Big brother style) of prisoners suffer in jail. Even more specifically the prisoner is trying to reach for help from the "healthy" part of society but gets blocked by a transparent wall and a bored face.

As a writer, writing isn’t for money, it’s a passion. That is why you shouldn’t be graded on it- it comes from the heart. My English teachers gave me bad grades because I wanted to get creative, and not do what everyone else did.
