Happy New Year! 4

While Christmas is always a somewhat depressing time for me, New Year’s is one of my favorite holidays of the year. I love its festive, optimistic character, and all the celebration around hopes of a new cycle of prosperity and happiness. It doesn’t matter that is only a change in the calendar. What matters is that people’s mindsets are generally focused toward a new beginning, improvement, and change, and all that positivity generates an egregore of optimism that can only attract good things. My New Year Eve was not what i wanted […]

back home.

i’ve been in Seattle WA for 10 days and came back last week. it was a lovely Spring break in an amazing, inspiring city. chances are that i will be moving there in the next few months, so, if you are a Seattle artist and/or crazy visionary and want to socialize or partnering for future projects, let me know! and if you want to hire me for art + design projects or classes, then we should REALLY talk. in the last days i have been focusing on deadlines and makeovers. my website […]

commissions, prices and vertigo. 3

Sketch for portrait commission in progress. in my next video i will be showing the making of a portrait – this one i’m working on right now. it’s been a gratifying, very enriching experience, and i’d like to share it. since i started doing the video thing people have been expressing the wish to see something related to my work. by the way, i’m grateful for having the best clients in the world. 🙂 talking about commissions, by Spring I may slightly raise my prices. i’ve been already doing this with my […]

when s*** happens 2

here’s a lesson for everybody who has rambunctious children at home and whose life depend on technological paraphernalia: keep your kids at least 5 feet away from your stuff. my 3 year old, who’s like a bull in a china store, just had to trip over my laptop power cable to cause a disaster. the system was severely damaged. after trying for hours to make things work, I had no choice but to restore the hard drive to the factory state. now I’m here, at the household desktop, bleeding heart, […]

sick and working 1

have been sort of sick these last couple days. a little lethargic, dizzy and with a weird pressure inside my head. this afternoon I felt a little more energetic and could almost finish a portrait I’ve been working on these last weeks. better go to the doctor if this thing continue on. if I had some help around here it would be so great… sometimes feel just too exhausted. Portrait of Lucy – work in progress I’d like to have a place far from home only for working. work has […]

away for a short while 2

leaving tomorrow for my in-laws. one week away from domestic routine, hooray! no internet access, so all I want to do is to work in some new sketches and read. dunno if I’ll be able to do all I want – one week is not much and I still have to take care of my baby. above, the project I am leaving home to continue working on when I come back. it’s called Padma (lotus, in sanscrit), and I am loving the ethereal purple and pink. can’t wait to finish […]
