And here it is, Episode 2 of the Da Vinci Jokes! ("La Bella Lavanderina" means "The Beautiful Laundress")

This was very, really hard for me, considering I'm not such a good cartoonist, and I had to do hundreds of Ezio sketches before finally doing him well in his Brotherhood outfit - the final sketch indeed is what some of you have seen here [link] .

You may know it or not, but last month, in Roma, there were some snow-related problems, and the city was blocked for a few days. So, this is also for the Roman people - and for the people in other towns who had a far worse situation.

As usual, here's the original joke:
A woman was washing clothes, and she had her feet red for the cold, and passing by her, a priest asked her why was she so red; the woman answered him it was so because she had fire under her. Then the priest laid a hand on that limb which had made him priest and not nun, and getting close to her, he kindly asked her to light his candle.

I know the final vignette is blurry, I couldn't help it, and even if I could have I didn't want to keep you waiting still for long, also because classes at university have restarted and I'm already sketching for Episode 3, "Philosophy for Morons", with Cesare and Giovanni Borgia as guest stars!
As always thanks to :iconjade-hernandez: for giving me the initial inspiration, to :iconmeeve: for giving me credit after asking my question about... Da Vinci Jokes, yeah! (Our Q&A here [link] )
Oh and to :iconbenthagamer: for... scarf pattern advice!

And last but not the least, to Leonardo, who wrote the jokes!

wait, so does it mean that this story of the laundress and the priest was a joke invented by Leonardo?

Why, Benvenuto wasn't? You haven't idea of what I've read in his autobiography... and he even covered up the fact he was bi in it.
Anyway let's just say he "befriended" loads of courtesans.
And he also was quite trigger happy. And hot-headed.

Comunque l'episodio 3 è completamente stilato su cartaceo. Devo soltanto passarlo da carta a quadretti a foglio A4 e poi vedo di scannerizzarlo. Così le immagini dovrebbero essere migliori rispetto a come lo faccio dalla tavoletta grafica.

Al momento ho il foglio proprio alla mia sinistra. Penso che tra oggi e domattina dovrei ricalcarlo su A4 col vecchio metodo della finestra.

Per quanto riguarda il capitolo 7 della storia, ti dico già da adesso che si svolgerà nell'arco di pochissimi giorni, massimo due o tre, forse.

I think THAT was what Ezio read in your comic, it's one of the naughtiest.
Meeve's avatar
Haha yes, actually this joke seems to fit my comic very well!

ps So that's where our snow is going. Canada has been really warm this winter, at least where I am. I wish we could trade weather with Rome, I'm sure they'd appreciate our warm-ish weather and I miss my usually 20 million feet of snow.
