let it flow

Ink, Watercolor and photoshop...!
While doing this illustration I said to my self I was not going to worry about the result and let the brushes just flow... and I did... and I have to be honest, the final wasn't mind blowing, it was exactly that: relaxed and imprecise. But then I tried some watercolors... and I tried some photoshop layering... and here it is, something better, something interesting, and I learned in the process =)  

So here it is, just for you guys enjoy... your friday!

my first interview!!

I was thrilled when my good friend Cecilia kindly ask me for an interview for her new blog "farfalla mia". She dedicates this space to share her interest for architecture, design and art.
It was very interesting, because you would think we artists know everything about our art and have all the answers poetically and artistically written up... until someone asks key questions and... oops! I have never thought of that!!
So I started thinking more deeply about why I do what I do and why I like it... so if you want to find out go check the interview by clicking here.

Thank you Ceci!

alexa chung

Illustration for today... the beautiful Alexa Chung behind her sweater.
Lately I have been having a lot of fun trying new tools and effects with Photoshop. 
Even though the original illustration was made with watercolor, in this case, when I scan  and prepare to post, I can't help but start trying a little something here and there...saturation, contrast, color, the possibilities are endless!! and they just make the illustration even more fun ;)

monday afternoon

honestly I am more of a tea drinker, but i really wanted to use this photo and make some sort illustration hybrid with it.
Someone told me that I should start "expanding" my illustration subjects, you know just in case one of my little watercolor girls would ever feel like coffee... 
so I started practicing... and is a long way to get the perfectly illustrated cup of coffee, but here is the first one with whipped cream and all ;)
