Ceramic experiments.

Last year I tried pottery but was hopelessly bad at it. Still, my attraction towards clay remained, so I joined another course. This time no turning wheel involved, which allowed me to work at a slower, calmer pace. And I absolutely love it! These are the results of my first few goes. I will be continuing my experiments for the coming months.

Odios Obvios.

For some weeks now, my friend Bego and I have been secretly working on these illustrations for our new Tumblr blog called "Odios Obvios", which means obvious hates (the name doesn't translate so well). Each week we will illustrate things that seam obviously hateful to us.

You can enjoy and follow us through facebook or Tumblr.

My contribution to Wit Industries X Koga Art Series.

They're out there at last! Wit Industries asked me to decorate the bike rims of one of their super fancy racer bikes and this is the result. Click on the image for a bigger view.

I also have a video of the process of painting them. Fun and challenging!

It had been years since the last time I used gouache paints. I have been seeing more illustrations lately done with these paints and started feeling jealous. So yesterday I treated myself to a few tubes and had a go. This post is also a sneak peak of a project I'm working on with the writer Adele Chong

This was done during the course I've joined at Studio Kolectiv

Transgender Transformation Flipbook.

As part of The Flip Collection III at Printroom, I'm making this flipbook titled "Transgender Transformation". 

The drawings are done by hand and later coloured in Photoshop. There are 42 frames, which was a lot of work. But if someone in the cartoon industry heard me they would laugh. This gave me a small (tiny, infinitesimal)  taste of the amount of work that goes into making a full animation film. Mind blowing.

Self-made Christmas presents.

I hand painted, cut and sew these personalized dolls for my sister, her partner and my nephew. It was a fun (and tedious!) process. A special thanks goes to my friend Conxa who helped me with her sewing machine skills.

The happy owners.
