This is what I've been up to

I'm sorry I haven't really been posting anything. I've been so busy working as a full time in-house illustrator and graphic designer. It's been soooooo much fun. I've been able to try out different styles which has been fun for me too. I'm also spending the time when I get off or work to try and brush up on my illustrator (the software program) skills. I totally recommend It's amazing.

I'm also working on the revisions for the book I'm illustrating. It will be published in March. So exciting!!!

Something I did a long time ago

This was a montage that was supposed to illustrate stress. My topic was "having to clean" and how that can create stress in my life. This was the first time I used that outreaching hand.

One Eye, Two Eyes and Three Eyes

One Eye and Three Eyes, along with their mother, don´t like their sister, Two Eyes.”You look like everyone else, and they´re don´t belong to us” they taunt, and they don´t let her eat anything, but the scraps from their plates. Hearing her crying from hunger, a wise woman appears and instructs her to say to her goat, “Bleat, bleat, my little goat, bleat, Cover the table with something to eat”. A feast appears, and when she´s full she recites, as instructed “Bleat, bleat, my little goat, I pray, And take the table quite away.” Her envious mother discovers her secret (through Three Eyes), and kills her goat. The wise woman appears again, tells Two Eyes to bury the goat´s entrails, and the next morning she finds a tree with silver leaves and golden fruit. A handsome knight stops, and declares “whoever gives me a branch of this tree, can have whatever they wish.” One Eye and Three Eyes try in last as the knight receives a branch from Two Eyes, she asks to be taken away. He marries her, and years later when her sisters come begging, she takes them in and cares for them.

The Three Brothers

An old man with three sons needs to decide which of them will inherit his house. He sends his sons out into the world, where each can learn a trade. He decides that whoever can produce the best masterpiece with their new trade will inherit the house. The sons go out, train well with masters, and return home. The first son has trained to be a barber, and as a hare runs across the field at top speed, the son shaves its whiskers into a goatee. The second son had trained to be a blacksmith, and as a coach drives by he jumps up and changes horse’s four shoes while it is running in full gallop. Then it starts to rain, and the third son, who had trained with a fencing master, swings his sword so quickly above his head that not a drop falls on them. The father decides this is the best masterpiece of skill, and the third son receives the house. The three sons lived harmoniously together in the house. When one brother falls sick and dies, the other two follow. Because they loved each other so much, they were all buried together in the same grave.

The Star Money

Once a small girl whose parents had died, was left with nothing but the clothes on her back and a piece of bread in her hand. She met a poor, hungry man and gave him the bread. She met a cold child, asking for a cap, and gave him hers. One by one she gives each piece of clothing to someone in need. With nothing else left, the stars suddenly fall from heaven, changing into coins...and although she had given her shift away, she has a new fine linen one, in which she gathers the coins and is rich the rest of her life.

Little Red Riding Hood in 1930's Gangsta

I attended a great workshop with Armand, an Illustrator who currently works for Pixar. He worked on movies like "The Prince and the Frog", "Flushed Away", "Sharktale"... etc., He gave us the assignment to illustrate "Little Red Riding Hood" in 1930's Gangster, American South West or Medieval Italy. I chose 1930's Gangster. This was created during the workshop. So, I had a couple of hours to do it.

Little Sam

This is one of my Illustrations for the book I'm writing about a little pig named Sam.

The evil Step Sister of Cinderella

This is the evil step sister of Cinderella. I know the Story as "Aschenputtel". I'm illustrating the Brother Grimm versions of the fairy tales. Cinderella wore a golden slipper and the step sister was beautiful on the outside, but ugly on the inside. The knife represents the part where the sister cut off her toes so that Cinderalla's shoe would fit. More to come.....
