Fly away…

English below.

Volar  y viajar lejos por un tiempo …es a veces lo que quiero.

Aquí muestro dos ilustraciones de uno de los cuentos que he ilustrado (“Una Estrella para Mamá”). A finales de este año, o en inicios del 2011, se publicará otro cuento ilustrado (no escrito) por mí (El Dedito de Kiki)–debajo muestro unos mini adelantos. Decidí compartir estas ilustraciones para el tema de esta semana de Illustration Friday: “Transportation”. Hasta pronto. Espero encontrar una verdadera Estrella para Mí.

Fly away….. is what I sometimes wish.

Here I am sharing two illustrations from a children’s book  illustrated (not written) by me, while ago (“A Star for Mom”). At the end of this year, or beginning of 2011 there will be another book of mine to be published (El Dedito de Kiki). Below, I am posting two a sneak peeks. I’ve decided to participate in this Illustration Friday‘s topic of the week: Transportation. Until soon. Hope to catch a REALLY good STAR soon.



Mirror, mirror what do “I” see

Sí, esa es la verdadera belleza, la interna. Mírate al espejo y date cuenta de tu belleza, de tu existencia, la de tu alma, esa es la que hará que brilles de adentro, hacia afuera. La belleza existe en todo nuestro alrededor, no existe definición de belleza. Comparte tu belleza.

Estos son unos dibujos que hice para la casa editora en la que estoy trabajando en estos momentos. Ando con mucho trabajo, eso es bueno! Tengo pendiente al  adorable monstruo “Mellow” para Nick. Agradecida como siempre, dejando que todo fluya…

Look at yourself in the mirror and find your inner beauty, it is the real beauty, that unique shine that comes from within, when you are aware of your existence, and confidence of your soul. It can be seen through your eyes, let it come out, and let it shine like never before. There is no definition for “beauty” as it is everywhere. Be aware of your existence, and do not fear to show it to the Universe. Share it with this world.

The illustrations above are for the House Publisher I am working now. The adorable “Mellow” monster for Nick is on pending, and already making time to finish it. I am having a lot of work, which is great, thankful as always, letting it flow….

Hola! Los voy a dejar con dos caritas (viñetas) que hice para la Editorial SM. He finalizado, después de tantos contratiempos y pruebas. Y ahora a reencontrarme con mi familia hasta el Domingo. Cabaña-Playa-Rincón-Familia, uhhhh,  qué chévere! Nos lo merecemos. Que más puedo pedir? Serán días memorables. Hacía años que no hacíamos esto.

Mucho éxito y suerte a todos. Mucha Luz y la mejor de las vibras. Hasta la semana que viene! Gracias y que los disfruten!

I will be out of town. I will be spending quality time (finally) with my family until next Sunday. All I can say, these are going to memorable times, I barely remember the last time we did this. It’s been a while. We are going to stay at a rented beach house at Rincón=Beach-Family-Quality time-ohhh–Rincón. I am excited, we totally deserve it.

I am also finally done with the project I was working on for Ediciones SM (tiny illustrations above). Wish you all great weekend ahead, luck, success and the best vibes always. See you next week! Enjoy and thanks!

Rockin’ and thinking

English below.

¡Hola, estoy viva y casi de vuelta! Por favor discúlpenme por mi larga ausencia. He tenido mucho trabajo, me he enfermado, he batallado (jeje, que dramática soy) y he estado en constante lucha atacando la ansiedad y el stress. Los días pasan volando y en estos momentos deseo un buen masaje. Por el otro lado estoy MUY contenta, pues durante mi ausencia he tenido el HONOR de ser nominada por varias colegas artístas y amigas de la Blogosfera.

Please excuse my absence for these past two weeks. I have been sick, extremely busy, hum, under stress and very tired. But I am grateful and thankful, because you always come back and leave me nice comments. And wait for me until I come back. Thank you VERY much.

And here I am back, Rockin’ and thinking!

During my absence I feel honored to be nominated by these incredible talented GREAT cyber-friends with special CYBER-AWARDS.

Kathryn (Sniplings) with a Thinking Blogger Award, Pati (Cabana Digital) with a Blog of the day, Clau (Degliuomini) and Paula (Miss Pink) mentioned me with a Rockin’ Girl Blogger. I can’t thank enough, this was very unexpected, and I treasure things like these. THANK YOU VERY MUCH, I feel grateful..

So here are my 5 nominations for the Thinking Blogger Award:

  • Mall: May Ann Licudine’s work enhances the power of dreams. Her beautiful depictions makes you wonder about about Babu’s world and what is in his thoughts. You will feel true magic, charm and sweet surrealism through her work. You will be bliss with the delight and sensibility of her written words and soul.
  • Gout: Jeffrey’s illustrations are remarkable. The bold lines and dynamic composition of his work without doubt will tranport you to another dimension, full of fantasy. His characters are bold and some have a mix of quirky and cute. I invite you to feel his work by going through his elegant, oldish style yet modern blog.
  • Donowatoso: In Constance’s work there is this glow, this world and a beautiful mind behind. I am totally drawn to it. Her work is full of enlightenment. Her deep and emotional words accompany her illustrations which takes me to another level of conscience and that it goes of the hand with a gold realm. A talented friend a truly special one. Please, take your ticket and travel to her brilliant world.
  • Rainplace: Mike’s blog is all inspiration. It is a transparent pure diary that has very mature and intense artwork. He is an artist that has passion for life and nature. Go visit his blog and take the journey. I guarantee you will taste a bit of his beautiful, fun and creative mind. He is a wise soul indeed.
  • Mundogominola: Claudia, oh! she is surreal. Her watercolor and digital illustrations are stunning. She can create same similar effects in both mediums, it is amazing. Love her whimsical and mature characters, so poetic. She is has deep sense of color and definitely you have to discover her metaphoric illustrations. Great artist and friend.

*Here are the nominations for the Rockin’ Girl Award (If it was up to me, I could have nominated all the girls I have at my Blogroll!)

Annax (she came back with a new blog), Amy (Star Magnolia), Christy (Sew Fussy), Kathryn (Sniplings), Abigail (Theodesign), Máriam (Missisi), Faun (Hands+Notions), Eva (Blau), Susan (Sweet Pea), Flossy-P, Irisz (Artista Muvek), Malin (RITA Illustration), Emma Kidd (Benconservato) and last but not less important, Astrid (Potatomammadesign).

These girls absolutely ROCKS!

And..eh…I don’t want to leave this post without including an illustration, Ok, let’s play “Peek-a Boo” with her! These are sneak peeks of the illustrations I have been working on for Norma Editorial. May you ALL have a great week and I will be seeing you (hopefully) in a week or so. Many hugs and candy kisses!

“Shhh….he-he! Don’t tell anyone I hide”.

I don’t have it

English below.

Aquí les muestro mi intento de dibujo masculino para Editorial Norma. Me parecen graciosos. A uno de ellos se le ha escapado algo, el otro cree se le olvida algo, y el otro dice :“Yo no lo tengo”. Sigo ilustrando para los textos escolares de Norma. Si dibujar una mujer fue algo complicado, me atrevo a decir que fue divertido dibujar estos hombres. He comenzado otra unidad, por eso he abandonado un poco mi blog. Espero les gusten estos chiflados. Y bueno, hay que continuar. ¡Gracias por visitar! Los veo en una semana aproximadamente.

Here is a drawing attempt for men drawing. I think they look half silly, half suspicious. The first one has lost something, the one second thinks or is not quite sure he has forgotten something, and the third one says: “I don’t have it”. If drawing women was difficult to me, I could say drawing men was much fun. This is a digital illustration I did for Norma Editorial. It seems I have abandoned you and my blog, but is that I just started to illustrate my second Unit for educational books. Hope you enjoy these guys. Thanks for coming back! See you in a week or so.

Boys chat, girls chat

English below.

Sigo con mis dibujos para los textos escolares. Ha sido divertido el tener que crear personajes nuevos y variados, o sea muchas señoras y muchos señores. Algo que no estoy acostumbrada a dibujar. Esta es una muy buena experiencia. Y aquí comparto con ustedes el “chachareo” de los chiquitos chicos y el de las chicas grandes.

I am still working with the drawings for school textbooks. I’ve been experiencing some interesting discoveries about my drawings. I am not used to draw adults but it is good, since it push me to work on them. It’s been a great experience so far. Above I am sharing with you some drawings from the educational book. Girls chat, and boys do too. Enjoy!

p.s. I am still working on my 5 nominations for the “Thinking Blogger Award” It’s been difficult. I already have my five, now I have to write what I like about them.
