a Chiyo-ni [III]

From the series a Chiyo-ni. 7 disegni per 28 haiku [to Chiyo-ni. 7 drawings for 28 haikus], third drawing with colour pencils and ink on washi paper, laying on a cardboard with my Italian translation of 4 haikus (42x30cm).An introduction to Chiyo-ni and my project in this post, previous life cycles in drawing I (age 0-7) and II (age 8-14). This drawing is for age 15-21 of my life, where I started wearing glasses, of course. Whoever had to at that age knows what the binomial adolescence and prescription glasses means. I’d like to come back to that state now: I was only short-sighted at that time! With the years I got actually astigmatism, longsightedness and recently walleye, a pretty fine collection.
