And for the weekend

It has been a not so painting week for me. I got a new studio, so have been packing and unpacking from the old to the new and been doing some "decoration" (if I could call it that way)... I will post some pictures when it is ready.

Any way I did this illustration a few weeks ago and just want to quickly post it for you to enjoy over the weekend!

I really like it because it is one of my favorites models, Sasha Pivovarova, wearing a incredible red velvet jacket design by the talented Alexander McQueen.

Hope you like it as much as your weekend =)

Big Master

Last week my good friend Jessica invited me to very special conference.
David Downtown, one of the greatest illustrators of our time, that I love and admire, came to New York in a very quick trip and FIT had him giving a lecture on 20th Century illustrators and his own work & experience.

He was very spontaneous and inspiring for us, new illustrators.
He gave one big piece of advice, that we should not focus on finding our own style. We get so caught up in that, that we forget the very essence of our art and expression.
We need to practice, and practice.... and practice even more....
because our style is going to find US

Isn't his work great!

Special Classsssss

Yesterday was a very special day.

It has been almost 8 months since my favorite and dear yoga teacher JD moved to the East Coast, and yesterday he came to NY for a unique  class... and I just couldn't missed it   =) !

I enjoyed it so much!!!.. and of course, I am so soared from it...!

Any way... I though this illustration for today (that has nothing to do with yoga except for the almost acrobatic body pose), it was inspired by an outfit from Lula's Magazine S/S 2009, you can check their website here

Great images and great inspiration for me =)

The big ones!

Isn’t it true that glasses actually shape the way you are perceived?

Sunglasses can actually say a lot about your personality, and yet you can change style and have a complete different look.

Classic oval and rectangle shapes for the “serious business look” , they express more confidence and intellectuality
Aviator  for very relaxed and fashion aware personality
Or Carrera and the classic Ray-ban totally retro
Big geometric shapes with thick, colorful frames and of course OvErSiZed!!!  Love them!
And we could go on…

The cool thing is that you can easily change style!  Having a few, or a lot ;),  and have fun wearing them and update your look without buying a whole new wardrobe

I think they are the best accessory plus you can use them all year around

So next time you find a pair that you love don’t think it twice!!

Any way the inspiration for this illustration is a picture of Samantha Seyfried and I couldn't help but loving it, the innocent eyes hiding behind those glasses….I had to paint it!

...and Voilá!
