Homage to McQueen

This illustration was part of an exercise I developed for my fashion design students.
It started with the painting of the figure, then the background was added, and finally the line drawing and the logo.
The students were free to choose any fashion designer they wanted for this assignment, including themselves.
I chose McQuenn because he kicked ass. Too bad he's gone.
Anyway, thanks for stopping by.

Post Graduate Studies Assignment: Retro Poster

Howdy folks!
Long time no see.
I've been extremely busy lately, there's a lot going on in my life.
Still, I'd like to present to you guys an assignement I developed for my post grad studies class.
We had to think of a product and develop a poster for it.
I researched American posters from the early 1930s to late 1940s.
Presented above are the rough sketch and the finished version.
Thanks for stopping by.

Playing with Color

Howdy folks!
In this study, I tried to capture the mood of the pose as well as the likeness of the model.
...and I forced myself to do it entirely with Painter.
It turned out good, I think, even after a long hiatus from painting digitally.
Hope you'll enjoy it.
Thanks for stopping by.

Hospital Sketches

My 3-month old daughter spent a week at the hospital, we came back home a couple of days ago. She was diagosed with a virus that attacks the lungs and interferes with the baby's breathing. When she was admitted, she was pale, sleepy and with shortage of breath.
There was nothing I could do other than hope she was gonna be allright. Thankfully, she did.
Shown here are some of the many sketches I did while waiting for her to get better.
Thanks for stopping by.
