Poster for the Latin-American Meeting of Design 2009

Hello folks how are you doing?
This is an illustration I entered for the 'Latin-American Meeting of Design' Contest, which will take place in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in July. I submitted it on Friday, May 29th. The theme is about the Visual Passion of the Latin-American people. I apologize for writing the copyright info on the image uploaded for this post but one can never be too careful. The deadline for the submissions was supposed to be the 29th of May but it was extended.
I used Photoshop on this one, I painted the figures digitally and used some photographs with some layer effects.
Hope you guys like this one, and I also hope it wins.
Just being selected for the exhibition will be a great honor.
Gotta keep my fingers crossed.
Thanks for all your support.

Collage Demo

Hello folks, this is a 20 minute collage demonstration I did for my students. One of the classes I teach in college is figure drawing for fashion students. It's a fun class.
I used photocopies, glue (obviously), gesso, brown Pilot hi-tec pen, ink, gouache and green highlighter.
It doesn't look great but I thought it was worth sharing with you guys.
Thanks for stopping by.

Quick Digital Painting

Hi folks, how are you all doing?
This one is a quick digital study, done in Photoshop. I painted it in order to avoid rust from building up.
I know that there's a lot of things that could be improved, such as more detail and color variations in the grass, the cow's shadow should be darker, more details in the background, more value variations in the background, the sense of depth should be improved, one of the horns is too close to the edge, and overall it's a little too green... but I just wanted to finish everything up quickly before my son's nap-time was over. The emphasis was on the cow.
Anyways, it's not great but it's an update.
Thanks for stopping by.
