Photographer Maurizio Pignotti, 46, spends all night in freezing temperatures painstakingly shooting the breathtaking crystal-clear stars. He uses a technique where he merges together anywhere between 80 and 450 shots to create what he describes as a “rainbow of stars”. Space-lover Maurizio, captures the star trails on the borders of the Adriatic Sea – including the Sibillini Mountains National Park, the Conero National Park, and the Gargano National Park.
Doodle Dojo is me, Dan Wolfe from the sunny south of England. I’m an ex-art student, semi-professional doodler and enormous sci-fi geek.
How did you get started in this t-shirt design game?
I used to draw a lot when I was a kid but it sort of died off a bit when a proper job and family came along. One day I just decided I needed to get arty again and I sort of accidentally found the world of geeky T-shirts and shirt-a-day sites. Luckily for me it seemed that there were loads of designs on all the sort of cool stuff I wanted to draw. It really inspired me to restart my hobby and I’ve had a lot of fun joining in, meeting all sorts of cool artists, finding new stuff to draw and just basically being an arty sci-fi nerd again. Its always good to push yourself to do something better than you did before, and seeing people enjoy what you’ve done just makes it easier to carry on and improve a bit more.
