Hi everybody.

I hope you guys and gals had a great summer, with all the people you love, friends and family alike.
To me, this summer has been a... revealing one: I've made some realizations about myself, things I have been thinking about since a handful of years now, about my beliefs, where I want to go, who I want to be and such.

Well, a lot of things remained the same: I still want to be an Engineer, I still want to work in automotive and I still consider my closest friends as part of my family, but a thing changed. A thing that kinda upsets people (and I see no reason why).

I'm an Atheist.

That doesn't mean that I don't feel compassion to people, that doesn't mean I just want to be a dick to everyone. It just means a simple thing: I don't have to derive my morals from a bronze-age set of books, whatever it is (Qur'an, Torah, New testament and such), because I've come to a simple yet powerful thought:

I believe in people's good actions and will.
I believe that we can overcome our differences by just working together and being honest with ourselves.
I believe that every person is a beautiful entity in it's own right, not because some "religious lens" makes me see it like that.
I don't know if there's something after our existence: to me, it's the best drive to live the time I have and do something productive and helpful in some way, and there's nothing more relieving to me than thinking that I've done something that helped another person in some way, if I have the opportunity to do so.


By saying all of this, I don't mean to upset anyone of you, it's all about being honest.
If your conscience tells you to not be a friend of mine because of my atheism, be free to leave: I won't judge, as every person has only to account to itself. I won't be waging "wars" against you, for it's a stupid thing to do and it just makes both of us look more childish than we really are.

For the ones remaining, I'm glad that you chose to accept me for who I am. It means really a lot to me.
''This is gonna be hard...'' by GabSonic
''This is gonna be hard...''
Hi chaps!

This is a quick comic, and I wanted to just make a friendly joke on mARTz-9o's truck passion: he just adores trucks, of any kind as long as they're big enough and look like s**t ;)
So... What could be more ironic than have to do a big delivery to a place in the middle of nothing with a tiny 1950's Mitsubishi Leo pickup? Only 12 BHP and a wholesome load to carry... good luck! :D
Also, he's pretty much into Australian or Irish accents and slangs, but I've chosen the first because it sounds more... rugged and suits better a trucker ;)

It's filled to the brim with Aussie slang, so... google it if you don't have even the slightest idea of what he's saying ^^;

To Martz: don't worry man, I don't mean harm ;)

Take care! ;)

Grand Prix Legends Brasil - Inks - by GabSonic
Grand Prix Legends Brasil - Inks -
Hi chaps!

This is a drawing I did for the great people back at gplbrasil.weebly.com/ , one of the most active Grand Prix Legends racing leagues out there.
I've also tried to do it as an hommage to the great French comic series "Michel Vaillant" by Jean Graton (now carried over by his son, Philippe and a handful of high-level men of his), as I tried to give the drawing that distinct "BD"-style (Bande-dessinée, "comic" in French).

The flags represen the nationalities of each driver in the current Season (the 20th) and are, from left to right: Italy, Argentina, Portugal, France, Mexico, USA and, in the center, Brazil.

Soon I'll post the coloured version ;)

Well, I hope you like it, guys!

Hi fellas!

:)

My name's Gabriele and I'm an Italian undergraduate who freaking loves Sonic, Ferrari and Formula One. Oh, and computers too! ;)
I like to help people if I can, but I hate to be anyone's slave, even if that person is a friend of mine.
I also like to say things as they are, rarely I'm going to put things mildly if there isn't a reason to. For this,sometimes I'm said to be grumpy, aggressive and bad-mannered, but who knows me knows that I'm exactly the opposite... ;)
I'm quiet almost all the time, I spend my time drawing, playing at videogames, watching tv and, when happens, go out with friends.
Other people say that I'm stubborn and a radical commie, but this isn't true: I like to think and discuss rather than only speak, to solve problems instead of leaving them and say "someone else will solve them anyway!".
I've a good (others say "too much" :XD:) self-esteem, but aren't rare the times when I'm doubtful of what can I do or say...I guess it happens to all of us, right?

Well, I'm done with the speech :XD:. I hope we will be good friends!

"Under the weather" is an euphemism, man... That almost destroyed me :/
However yeah, they were getting to me: now I'm on to Calculus I and II and then I'll decide what to do with the Uni, if to continue or to drop.

Lucky you! What studies are you going to get a degree in? :)
