Vodianova and Texeira for Forum Spring 2011

How has been your week!
Mine totally white... we had 3 days of ongoing snow in NY. The city looked amazing, and I say looked because right now it is starting to melt and is all wet and dirty, but Wednesday night while walking on the street on my way home after dinner I felt like in a fairy tail.

Any way, going away from the snow and thinking of spring, I loved Brazilian label Forum Spring 2011 Campaign with Natalia Vodianova and Marlon Texeira by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott... how incredible are the splashes of paint in the pics!!!

Proenza Schouler Spring Summer 2011

The illustration is one of Proenza Schouler Spring Summer 2011 ad campaign. Models Melissa Tammerijn & Julia Nobis by Willy Vanderperre.

The suggestion to see the campaing came from the Igor+Andre, one of my favorites illustrators' Blog.
And when I saw it I just felt the urge to take the brushes and start.

I love the simplicity of it and yet all the content and meaning in each of the pictures. Masculine and feminine melting seamless, delicate seduction...the ethereal soft feeling.

I used many different media, I think there is a touch of everything I have in it and really like how it turned out!

Ruben Toledo & Nordstrom

Ruben Toledo is one of my favorite illustrators... he has a very interesting and attracting imagination, his characters always have a very particular ease, fun yet dramatic strong look.

And I just found out that now he presents a limited edition book with the illustrated story of 10 years of collaboration with Nordstrom, 

Ruben Toledo's Fashion Almanac Book.

I am ABSOLUTELY buing it!! Can't wait to discover its pages... and while looking for it, I looked at this wonderfull video where we see a life drawing and painting session with Coco Rocha for Nordstrum... iyou should all check it out!

And here is also the link to Nordstrum if you are interested in biuying the book you can access Nordstrum page

I do have a good reason to be so absent the last weeks!!
Excited going on vacation, I packed some pencils, markers and inks  to paint some nice illustrations for you guys and my new-not-new-camera to also post some pictures...

Well guess what? I got stocked in JFK due to the blizzard the night before... the airport was chaos, flights canceled, air plains broken, tired staff, angry and deseparate customers...some people had been waiting for 72 hours!, sleeping on the floor or wherever they could (me included, couldn't help but falling sleep =))
Any way, after 16 hours of wait and another 7.5 of flight, when I finally landed the pilot announced that our baggage couldn't be loaded for technical reasons (what!!) WellI didn't get my bag until the last day... and on top of using the same outfit over and over I had no paper no pencils no images to work with... 
yes, I had my camera to at least post some pics, but guess where the battery charger was? In the bag!!
It was on the overall a very nice experience, I felt so light living on nothing but what I was wearing...
So back to NY with no new images to post and share with you,  yesterday I finally had time to finish a cute illustration and this morning I realised the scanner didn't send the file to my computer.... =(

So I decided to post an illustration I did last year around this time, it was one of my first ones and I like the way the coat's texture is almost tangible, so soft against the brightness of the jewelry...  and tomorrow the new illustration, promised!
