This month, Daniele de Rosa is interning here at IIB. He is Italian and currently studies Web Design in Naples. He is here with several other students from his class as well as two teachers. Daniele has a passion for drawing and is thinking about applying to a Fine Arts school next. While he is here, he will exercise his passion for drawing by creating quick comics about his time in Brighton – lucky us!
His first comic tells the story of how he arrived in Brighton with his friends. Mind you, it was a day of firsts: it was the first time Daniele traveled by plane. To add more suspense, their plane was delayed for quite a while, so it was a very long day. The comic expresses how Daniele felt like he was entering a new world when he arrived in the UK, which he felt was totally different from his usual life in Italy. Even the train ride brought in surprises, as he thought the train was huge. However, in the end, when Daniele finally arrived at his host family’s home in Brighton, the world started to make sense again, and he started to feel like he belonged.
So, without further ado, check out Daniele’s “My First Day in Brighton”.
If the picture makes for difficult reading, here is the text, scene by scene:
Scene 1: After delays that made my friends and I impatient, the plane took off around 11:30. It was my first time in a plane! I thought it was great. I felt lucky to be traveling with my friends.
Scene 2: We arrived in the UK four hours later. When we got off the plane, it felt like I was in another world: everything just seemed completely different.
Scene 3: The best way to go from the airport to Brighton is to take the train. Another shock: the train was huge!
Scene 4: After about one hour, we arrived in Brighton’s Station. From there, I went to my host family’s house. They were so nice and hospitable. They made me feel welcome. It was almost as if I was supposed to be here.
Good job, Daniele! We love the drawings!
