Ventimila giostre

Ventimila giostre sotto i mari
20.000 carousels under the sea

Illustration selected for Lucca Junior Contest 2018, about Jules Verne.
The picture take inspiration by the general scenario of his book – in particular from 20.000 carousels under the sea – and also from a curious episode of his life. When he was a child Jules Verne escaped from the city with a ship: he wanted to find corals as a gift to his cousin, since he was in love with her.
