Halloweekend!


It's still a Halloweekday, spend it spooky, spend it fun.

Dias De Los Muertos for Timeless Pieces.


Albie the dog and Martine from Timeless Pieces celebrates Dia De Los Muertos in Mexico.
Full illustration here.

This weekend is a very special one, Halloween, Dia De Los Muertos / Todos Los Santos, (All Saints and All Souls day). 
So here is an extra special illustration made for Timeless Pieces. It is about a lively festival celebration of the annual celebrated event of Mexico, Dia De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead). 

Little sketch before the final piece. Here are some lively skeletons playing acoustic guitars.
I can imagine them singing, dancing away to the tunes of a happy celebration.

I hope this extra special weekend was a great one spending with your loved ones here and with the dear departed.

Ballet in Barcelona. Collage version.



A new little project up in collaboration with one of my great friends, Carolina De Pedro Pascual of Danza Ballet.

Featuring the Danza Ballet's Body Ballet class within the beautiful cities and sights of unique Barcelona, Spain.
 What came into my mind during the process was Barcelona's greatest architect, Gaudi, and his beautiful mosaic creations. Also, the cream colored stones used in most of Barcelona's architecture. I knew it was something that I could translate into a little collage type map.

So here and there, placing the cities on where they should be, and somewhere in between you find little ballerinas in sight, 
takes you to little Danza/Body ballet class in Barcelona you ought to see.


To be continued..

Another one of those city sketches.



The airport runways and airplanes are becoming one of my favourite places to sketch and daydream. It's so pleasant watching all the busy planes depart and arrive. This one is an old sketch of the same place I go to frequently these months. It's always a busy day around the runway.

Yesterday's short exit trip again with mother right across the lake at Gardens By the Bay Marina Sands.
Haha this one's my version, a cuter version. :)

Rainy day at the local market.



Last Saturday was a gloomy and rainy one but it didn't stop me from spending my early morning sketching at a new fun place, the local market, while accompanying mother there as well (right at the vegetable stand). Here's a quick sketch of this little market scene.
