In the office...

This drawing is very special.
I made it for the office of a friend. She is directing a very nice and successful spa in the upper east side, Exhale, and thought she might like some company for her walls... ;) if you want to check their website just click here.

She really liked the movie AVATAR, I have another friend who says that she even runs like one of them, you know like very lightly and super fast!!! So this girl has special "avatar eyes". 

I hope you like it as I do!!!!

And guess what?? I also got a new artist studio!!! Yes yes yes!!! No more  storing things behind the bed or making a mess in the kitchen =)
I am officially decorating it now after a whole fieldtrip to Ikea with the help of my friends.... It would have been so hard with out them!! Thank you!!!
And then I'll post some photos when its ready.

Happy weekend!

And for the final try...

One day I was trying to get a very specific effect done in a illustration.
I painted the same image over and over again.... I was getting so frustrated because it just didn't seem to come out good!!! At all!!!

And finally I relaxed. I said, Ok it doesn't matter I am  going to do it one more time just for fun... and look what I got!!!!

I loved it!!!! I didn't just drew this one that I loved also a huge smile in my face...

"Practice is not something that we do when we are good, practice is the thing that make us good...!"

It feels so long!!

I know, it's been like forever since my last post.

I've been working in a very interesting project. A friend wants me to illustrate an advertisement campaign for TV commercial with my illustrations!!!! It's a little different to what I' used to do because there have to be several illustration to create the animation and movement and they all have to be very accurate....So They have to be done by computer and I have to confess I know very little about it... so I bought a book online, and thought that was the solution to the problem, but.......... it didn't arrived until today!! I was a little desperate and struggling with photoshop. But we all know that the more we practice the better we become.

I'm missing my water colors and real brushes though!!! I did this illustration a couple of weeks ago and really had fun painting it. It is inspired in H&M summer campaign and I loved the image...

Hope you are having a great week so far!

I made a little quick experiment today...  
I did this drawing about two weeks ago in pencil at work, wich by the way got  me in a little trouble with my boss!!! Of course!!! I mean drawing while working!!! I was very sorry. 

Any way I finished it by putting some color digitally. It's the first time I colored and illustration with Photoshop,  I prefere working with real paint and brushes... but I like how it turned out, plus, I didn't have to clean my regular mess when painting!! So check out  before and after...

It is also a very special day to me. 
It is one of the person's I love the most birthday!!!

My mother used to tell me that birthdays were very important to each of us because it is OUR OWN new year. The ending of cycle and the begining of another one and that we should spend and celebrate it the way we wanted to live the rest of the year...=)

Feliz cumpleanos guapo!!!!!
