El libro de mis abrazos Colección de inspiraciones: frases que me brotan, frases de libros que me gustan y otras curiosidades. Mostly in Spanish, a collection of quotes from the books I read and from my own inspiration.
It’s been a while since I’ve posted work, but I’ve been working (and playing) none the less! Sometimes its important for my creative process to not post as much on the internet. I find it valuable to take some time to develop without receiving outward validation. However, I love sharing art and I love all of you. Everything has it’s time.
My latest illustration is “bat rider” drawn in ink. Although a very laborious process, I find inking incredibly calming and melodic. It was also nice looking back on my pictures Paris to find good window reference.
These are some fashion designs I recently created, inspired by the dresses of Queen Elizabeth I of England (one of my personal heroines.) I wanted to play with the concept of being a modern queen defined more strongly by your ideals than your sexuality, while still feeling attractive.
And here we have Roald Dahl’s four famous brats, Veruca Salt, Mike Teavae, Augustus Gloop, Violet Beauregarde , and our hero of course, Charlie Bucket. Reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory with my Mom is one of my favorite childhood memories, and the memory inspired me to so some character designing! I wanted to experiment with only using graphite drawing and digital color, aiming for a flatter more textured storybook feel. Overall, it was a fun prompt to work with!
I am proud to say, that this year, my Illest of Ill poster design submission got selected and is going to print! Illest of Ill is an annual themed show at my school, and this year the theme is “Twisted Fairytales,” hence, Sleeping Beauty. You can check out the official blog for the event here. I am pleased with how this came out in a short amount of time I did it in!
I’ve always loved that silly old macabre tune, the “Hearse Song”… It an odd one for sure!
“Don’t you ever laugh as the hearse goes by, For you may be the next one to die. They wrap you up in a big white sheet From your head down to your feet. They put you in a big black box And cover you up with dirt and rocks. All goes well for about a week, Then your coffin begins to leak. The worms crawl in, the worms crawl out, The worms play pinochle in your snout, They eat your eyes, they eat your nose, They eat the jelly between your toes. A big green worm with rolling eyes Crawls in your stomach and out your eyes. Your stomach turns a slimy green, And pus pours out like whipping cream. You’ll spread it on a slice of bread, And this is what you eat when you are dead.”
This is my first illustration for the fall semester of school, and I am pleased with how it turned out. It’s based of a poem by Carol Ann Duffy called "Little Red Cap."I am starting to see my voice in my work, and that is so motivating.
