Believe & Grow

English below.

Este diseño que muestro lo hice particularmente para generar unos fondos que necesitaba para unos talleres vivenciales que estoy tomando. Ha sido una experiencia super gratificante, maravillosa y hasta mágica. Las palabras se quedan cortas para describir cómo me siento. El diseño que ven fue transferido a unas camisetas blancas. Este diseño formará parte de la línea “Majeak Ann”. El algodón de las camisetas será suave y adicional, de manera especial incluiré una línea de camisetas orgánicas con tinta a base de planta/vegetal.

Siempre he deseado contribuir y ayudar a mi planeta, y que mejor manera de hacerlo, sino es creando ilustraciones con intención, propósito y esencia. La línea “Majeak Ann” tendrá variedad de estilos (adorable “cute” y unisex) entre otros temas, pero me interesa primordialmente enfocarme en temas ambientalistas. Me encantaría y agradecería mucho leer sus respuestas, igualmente espero les sea de su agrado. Gracias por su aportación y por formar parte de uno de mis sueños… Miles de abrazos…

The design I am showing above will be part of a clothing line I am developing starting with t-shirts. I have always wanted to contribute and help my planet using my illustrations, so I thought why not starting to create designs with intention and pro-earth. That would be a perfect gift from me to you and my planet earth. The “Majeak Ann” line will include a variety of designs (cute mostly and unisex) but will also develop special designs showing green love by transferring the designs into organic shirts using vegetable/plant based ink. I would love to hear feedback and responses from you. Thanks so much for being part of one my dreams and for helping. A thousand hugs…

p.s. The message below the design says in Spanish: “Cree y Creces” but will also have it in English too which will say: “Believe and Grow”

EXTRA SWEETS: I also wanted to share a little extra special thing I always loved when little “ribbon wands”. I was looking and found this creative woman and her name is Nikki (her blog and etsy shop.) These lovely ribbon wands reminds me of this sketch.

Illustration Friday: Scale

English below.

La grandeza se lleva dentro y va muy de la mano con el dicho: “La corona no hace la reina, sino el corazón”. Esta pequeñita llamada Noni, baila, y se balancea, ella sabe que es grande, ¡oh sí que es grande! Esta es mi contribución para el tema de esta semana de Illustration friday: Scale. ¡Qué la disfrutes!

*En la imagen de abajo presento una artista que hace unos muñecos super tiernos, adorables como de ensueño. Lindo regalo para bebés o niñas grandes como yo: “Chet and Dot” y su tienda en etsy.

The seeds of greatness are inside. Noni dances and balances her joyful yet curious life by focusing and looking at her heart. I relate this with the phrase: “What makes the queen is not her crown but what it is in her heart”. She is not tiny, oh my she is huge with no doubt. This is my contribution for this week Illustration Friday’s theme: Scale.

*Introducing Chet and Dot and her shop.She does soft, adorable, cute, dreamy plush toys and other sweet things for babies or big girls like me. I adore her work very much.

Amigos y amigas ya estoy de vuelta y muy contenta de compartir con ustedes muchas cosas divertidas. Gracias por su paciencia por siempre regresar y dejar siempre comentarios motivadores y sinceros. Desde mi ausencia he vivido unas semanas intensas, divertidas y llenas de sorpresas. Les adelanto que ahora soy LIBRE, que recuperé esa niña interior que perdí hace muchos años atrás. Entre trabajos y compromiso conmigo misma se me hizo complicado actualizar mi blog. Tengo muchas cosas que mostrar, ¡así que estate cerquita! Aquí les muestro mi “Kokeshi” terminada, cuyo tema es: “Make a wish”. Tiene estrellitas brillantes, lunas, flores que se comen y personajes adorables en su alrededor. La exhibición de KOKESHI en SUBTEXT ya abrió. Si vives en California o lugar cercano pulsar aquí para instrucciones sobre cómo llegar a la exhibición. Ha sido todo un éxito desde el principio y todas las kokeshis lucen espectaculares. Cada artista le dio su toque, todas genuinas. Para ver la galería pulsa aquí. Si te interesa comprar un blanco y pintar una muñeca Kokeshi para ti puedes contactar a Christina Conway, curadora, artista y organizadora de este evento.

Hello dear friend. I am way happy to come back! Thanks for the long waiting, for your patience and loyalty as always. For leaving me such wonderful and sincere comments during my absence, they were all motivating. THANK YOU. During my absence I was working on different things but most important, working with myself, finding a space for peace, in my interior, I was searching for “that little girl” that has been always within me and felt I lost it when I was 5. It’s feels good to come back, and I feel FREE, I was born again, it’s a precious gift. It’s all I can say.

On the other hand I have been also very busy working on other projects specially in this special project I have the honored to participate in this marvelous show at SUBTEXT, by curator and artist Christina Conway. I am showing you my finished piece above. This was a challenge indeed, I never painted something three dimensional before. When finished the doll I wanted to keep it myself! If you would like to stop by the show click here. To take a look at the gallery, all participants were spectacular! All Kokeshis are for sale, some were already sold before opening the show.If you would like to buy wood blanks (kokeshi) for yourself and paint it contact Christina. Hope you like my doll as much as I do…Enjoy the show!

p.s. I have new illustrations and doodles to show you are going to love. So…stay tuned!!
