Exploring new techniques

December 20, 2007


I’ve decided to explore new techniques on Adobe Illustrator so I can have new stuff to show this next year.
It would be nice to show up the mexican culture & history through my work, but please belive me, I do not boast of knowing all the references of it; Im just a mexican middle class guy who loves to apreciate strange street-dogs, flying piƱatas and Mayan old relics.
This first illustration taste reflects my admiration for mexican prehispanic history and the wildlife of that period.
If you are interested on this topic; go rent Apocalypto by Mel Gibson and you’ll see why I fell in love with the mayan stuff.

My girlfriend Cindy told me that I should try the “self-promotion thing” in order to spread my freelance business to the world!… actually my country..ha…..so this first line is for ladys.
I’ll sell them’ next year, cuz this holydays I’ll be busy as hell.
Thank God we hooked up a project for a national automotive spare parts and you know how it is
Worst thing: looooooooong meetings.
Good thing: cold air and coffe cakes, and my girlfriend for sure!

Rebel Santa V.1

December 6, 2007


Reciently a client asked me to develope a Santa Clause illustration, but not just a typical santa…no sir!
He wanted me to do a Rebel Santa, you know…REBEL…that american 50’s kick-butt-attitude. So I started lookin’ at James Dean pics and movies so I could picture that.
Finally, after a few hours of sketching (when I design types, make illustration or start a vector collection I DO LOVE SKETCHING-nothing compares!) I started the Rebel Santa Illustration.
Is not finished yet…any suggestions?

gosh! this is gonna be a L-O-N-G night… Oh sweet dawn
