Shop partnership

Wheee! It’s official!

There’s now a shop that carries my products! It’s in Valparaíso (Chile) and it’s called “Donde tu madre”, in a strategic location within the city. I’m exciteeed!

My illustrated thingies like notebooks and notepads, sticker sets and hand painted greeting cards as well as the glittered mugs will be available for purchase in the shop.

I went to install my stuff a few days ago and I’m still working on optimizing my space, make it look nice and bring new things, so this isn’t the definite look, but I had to share.

The right side of this is mine -and there’s still things missing!

Stickers and greeting cards.. and more stuff coming soon!

Learning: textile printing

New class! This time, all about hand printing on fabric. While I have my eye out on places or ways to print my illustrations into fabric, I’m also interested in hand printing other kinds of designs. We’re a couple classes in and so far, so good!

First up: designing a stamp to cut by hand.

Might have gotten a little carried away

I may have gotten a little cross eyed but it was worth it.

Aaand it’s a stamp!

And then I went a little nuts stamping.

Learning: Abstract Painting

I recently took a “Spontaneous Painting” class, for acrylics. I didn’t know what exactly they would teach me, but I knew it would work wonders to make me lose my fear of painting (you know, the traditional on canvas painting -even if in the class we mostly used paper).

This is my super not staged photo, lol.

Subject: City of the Future.

We worked with painting knifes (I believe that’s the word?) and it was a lot more fun than I ever expected. Especially since the class was nearby my home town, it was so great, most classes take place in the capital, 2 hours (and lots of money) away.

I hope to learn a lot of new things this year! I’m taking suggestions 😉

Little by little

I have no spaceeeeee

Because of the remodeling works in my house, it’s really hard to work. But I’m slowly getting there. I almost have no room for doing things, but I try. I decided to use a sketchbook with black sheets to practice some lettering.

Very appropriate under the circumstances

New challenges

New year, new life, some say. What I do know is that a lot of projects are coming up for this year, I wish to learn new things and expand my limits and horizons. Organizing it all will be the hardest, probably.

And like destiny knew about this, I was contacted locally by someone who liked my work at the Mall Fair, and asked for a custom notebook, and the cover art was something completely out of my comfort zone. I didn’t take pictures of the process or the final product, but I do have one of the sketch.

Didn’t you say you wanted new things?
