I Got The Looks + Details

Dat cover.It’s been almost a year (A YEAR!) in the making, but today, finally, we are underway with the whole process of printing, color proofing and the likes. It will be ready for the end of May, but I’m yet to know the exact day/time/place for sure.

Also, this is the time when all the thing you thought were correct, looks like you can do it better, as in: moving a 0,5 pt line a few millimeters to the left or try to hide that 0,04% of the picture that maybe looks funny, sometimes. I used to dedicate lots of time to those kind of things, but I decided to let go. It’s not that I’m obsessed with the details, but as you go on, the gap between perfection and your current product begins to shorten, but it will NEVER be perfect. Because few things are. Instead, I focus on how and when are going to distribute it, on making a good campaign out of it and basically, DON’T FUCK THIS UP.

I really hope you enjoy what’s been going on as much as I have. Well, I’ve had my rage days, my homicidal days and my I-give-up-damn-you-all days. But it’s worth it.

Cheers!

30 is the new 30 + zoolander style

Recently, I turned 30 and I want to share two awesome things. Last tuesday however, I turned 30 + 9 months and it was awesome! Far from home, every bit of joy you get when surrounded by friends or family is highly increased by how true these demonstrations are. I collected some phrases that inspired me to overlook the “you’re not a 20 smth anymore”, my favorite being “Growing up is for plants”. The illustration is what you see above (and the link takes you to my IG gallery, if you’ve been missing it!)

Also, on Saturday, a recent interview I gave to Croatian blog Street Style Seconds – http://www.streetstyleseconds.com/ -about the projects I’m working on, my stay here in Zagreb and, as a total rookie, what was I wearing, fashion in Europe and whatnot. What makes me wonder is how people react to fashion (clothes and wearable goods rather than trends) in different parts of the world, specially in those places where weather dictates people’s life’s, and eventually, how they innovate in what they wear to cope with it. I’m tinking about icelandic wool vests now! Anyway, more pics and full interview here (croatian only, sorry!): http://www.streetstyleseconds.com/2014/04/cool-clothing-style-guys-chinos.html

Creatures, Animals and Mountains

Since the Instagram pic I last uploaded – HERE –  was to the like of some people (mine as well), I decided to shoot a bit more of the study I’m making on flora, fauna and geography of stuff I came across back in Patagonia plus some other stuff that I think would be cool pets, featuring: whales, lesser rheas, penguins, aboriginals, Torres del Paine National Park, guanacos, birds, chingues, dogs, cougars (the feline one) and some other creatures waring swimsuits, because they’re too ashamed of their fur-covered privates.

The minimalistic color scheme is due to the fact that I lost the colored pens I had. Intentionally, obviously.

This was made in a few hours every day, as a wee thing to keep me busy as I’m finishing many stuff here in Croatia, including my very stay in Croatia, so, a creativity boost was much needed.

Love.

New Comic Book + Processes

proceso5It’s been a long time since I haven’t uploaded any cool stuff, mainly because I’ve been busy working into some projects that require my writing and Excel skills rather than my drawing or photo abilities!

One of them has already payed off and the news is that I’m finally going back to the comic book draws! See, I published a short story of 5 numbers back in 2008 that had a moderate success in sales, but it contributed to open the local scene here in Chile regarding graphic novels and installing the comic book as a validated way and level it with books, magazines and other published media.

So, I teamed up with my partner Cristian Escobar (in the inks and color) and my newest buddy Oscar Barrientos in the writing office, and since he’s an accomplished and international author with loads of love for pop culture and graphic novels, the outcome is something that I would like to reach out as much as possible, since the idea is to tell some stories based in Patagonia, we have to be very careful with the way we write it, since we don’t want to have everyone but us -the ones who have lived here in Patagonia- laughing at details that nobody else will understand.

We’re working on it though ;)

Finally, here are some pics of how we make these illustrations ,hope you enjoy it!
