And I have something new going on.
It's November. That time of the year when it's almost THAT time of the year and illustrators prepare their Christmas greetings.
The requirements list / self brief I made was:
- Making something universal, yet with a spanish touch.
- Not repeating last years' "Happy holidays" message.
- No mentions to any of the recent political events (aka. how catastrophic 2016 was).
- Not making references to any specific religion.
- Avoiding trees, bells, snow, socks or any other classic icon.
So here it is. A type-led christmas dessert illustration, inspired in old canned food ads.
Yesterday I was pleased to reach a mile stone on instagram. A small but very lovely community of real, design oriented, supportive followers. Feel free to join daily updates at @de_carlota.
... with a music and a new book!
It doesn't change anything and there's still a lot to learn and improve. Actually, 200 is a very big number...
But on the inside, it means all these years of failing and repeating over and over again weren't worthless.
I've been all morning listening to "Everybody hates Chris" 1st season, and somehow this came up...
I'm just back from an illustration workshop at the European University of Madrid. It wasn't that long ago when I was sitting at the other side....
Nice kids. Nice experience. All thanks to Begoña Moreno.
So excited I'm signing my new studio lease tomorrow...
I just found a rejected rough I did this summer for a commissioned project.
I wonder if one day I'd be ashamed of those silly Tony Manero alike statues. Because today I'm not really...
Enjoying some plain retro signage illustration for wall decor. More is coming soon to the store.
Getting ready for the upcoming edition of LIF. These items and more will be in the store soon.
Feeling like a pop-up christmas shopping, artist led-talk, workshop, cocktail and music evening in London?
HASD es un proyecto precioso de unas amigas con ideas brillantes para el que he tenido el placer de hacer la identidad. Su filosofía es que cualquier día puede dejar de ser un día cualquiera, y para ello han montado una serie de cajas exquisitas con las que montar una fiesta en un pispás y sin más necesidad que la de compartir momentos especiales con los tuyos.
Además, aprovechan su experiencia profesional para organizar todo tipo de eventos y que te ocupes de lo único que importa: que tengas un día especial.
