Little Things


For illustration friday yet again...
Pencils and a little itsy bit of photoshop... trying to not forget the roots...
(I usually tweak a lot in the vectoring so a pencil finished line is very hard for me to do... That's why there are so many mistakes...)

A very very quick piece for illustration friday :)

paint studies






It's been AGES since i've grabbed a brush and some paint and done something other than digital illustration (mostly because I suck at traditional art) but lately I've had this little itch to do something that didn't involve the computer... so these are the first painterly studies i've done in like... what, two years?

Just Arrived...




I now have in my hands a copy of the Apag-Unicef book "60 Unite for Children"
And I can tell you, It's top notch quality all over. Design, presentation, and content-wise it's a must have... And I still think I may have been invited because of a typo or a mistake, I am so lucky to have been invited it hurts.

Click here to go to the website
, and please consider buying one, it's a very nice art-book and all profits go to Unicef... :)

By the way, the quote I used to accompany my piece goes like this:

"Someday, maybe, there will exist a well-informed, well
considered and yet fervent public conviction that the
most deadly of all possible sins is the mutilation of a
child's spirit"

-Dr. Erick Erikson

Ready for awesomely crazy stuff?

Check out the work of Jesus
or a.k.a. Hector Sanchez, another dude I'm proud to have had as a fellow classmate...


He's delved into many kinds of artsy stuff, from motion graphics to music to photography but his new illustration work is what I'm most amazed by... It's colorful, childish yet perverted and deliciously freaky... Check him out!!!




Chequen el trabajo de este otro compa, Jesus tambien conocido como Hector... Es compañero de la escuela y un bato muy talentoso y creativo, etc. etc... Le ha entrado a la musica, al video, motion graphics, y de todo, pero su trabajo de ilustración reciente es de lo que mas me ha gustado...

60 United for children / Popgun

I'm just copypasting this from the News section of my website, ignore it if you already read this... this is for the people that only read the blog :p
-----------------------------------------------------------------

Hey everyone! Got some interesting stuff to report!

First



The APAG-UNICEF Book "60 United for Children" is out...
And I was lucky enough to have been invited (Yes, I
still can't believe it) along with huge names like
Tokidoki, Tokyopop, Jon Burgerman, and lots of other
awesome artists... Click here to go to the website,
and If you can, order one, you'll get a superb art book
and be helping out UNICEF... Greath huh?

60 artists and designers
from the whole wide world
gather through a book
dedicated to UNICEF's
actions. All profits from the
book go to UNICEF.

Here's the trailer that is up on their website... look near the end for yours truly :).




Second




What's PopGun, a little reminder:

"Image presents a groundbreaking trip
into the inspired minds and talents of
the industry's top writers and artists.
From giant monsters to burning
satire to period piece epics and everything
in between, PopGun crosses
the protected borders of every genre,
fulfilling the desires of all hungry
for the pungent taste of creativity.
Deviating from the tired mold of
abstract anthologies, PopGun places
entertainment on the front lines,
reinforced with unique storytelling
and an incredible array of art."

Popgun is ALMOST OUT and I'm so excited, that book is
going to rock everyone's socks off, quite literally...

Sketchy Bookis

So I went nuts and I bought a bunch of sketchbooks and markers... Because it has been a while since I had any decent stuff to draw on / with. I'm so proud, I bought some to keep at home and some to go... :D

----

Me fui nueces (ok, eso esta muy pocho - enloquecí, pues ) y me compre un montón de sketchbooks y marcadores... Es que ya, la verdad tenia mucho tiempo sin tener cuadernos decentes ni plumones/plumas que no fueran comprados en Waldo's/Solo-un-Precio/Tienda-de-1-dolar-pues... Estoy contento con mi compra, unos los dejaré en la casa, y otros los cargaré para todas partes.

Almost 9 years ago...


I was 16-17... A good friend convinced me that I could do something with the doodles I was doing in my school notebooks, and he told me "If I took care of everything, and all you had to do was draw and make it look the best you can, would you do it?" I said yeah, I thought he was crazy...
But no, we did it. 4 Issues of an Independent comics magazine in Ensenada, Baja California, through 1998-1999. It was a little thing, but to me it was a big deal. I realized that other people liked what I did and that I could maybe, just maybe, do it for a living. :)

R.I.P. Jean Baudrillard


“Intellectuals must stop legitimizing the notion that there is some “ultimate truth” behind appearances. Then, maybe, the masses will turn their backs on the media and public opinion management will collapse.” –Baudrillard

"Terror is as much a part of the concept of truth as runniness is of the concept of jam. We wouldn't like jam if it didn't, by its very nature, ooze. We wouldn't like truth if it wasn't sticky, if, from time to time, it didn't ooze blood." --Jean Baudrillard

French philosopher Jean Baudrillard dies age 77

PARIS (AFP) - French sociologist and philosopher Jean Baudrillard, one of Europe's leading postmodernist thinkers and a fierce critic of consumer culture, died Tuesday in Paris at the age of 77.

He was a prolific writer and renowned photographer who first attracted worldwide attention in 1991 with the deliberately provocative claim that the Gulf War "did not take place".

Baudrillard argued that neither side could claim victory by the end of the war and that the conflict had changed nothing on the ground in Iraq.

Just over a decade on, in an essay entitled "The Spirit of Terrorism: Requiem for the Twin Towers", he courted fresh controversy by describing the September 11, 2001 attacks in the United States as an expression of "triumphant globalisation battling against itself".

Born in Rheims on July 29, 1929, into a peasant family, he studied German at the Sorbonne, later working as a teacher and translator of Bertolt Brecht before his interests turned to sociology.

Baudrillard taught sociology throughout the 1960s and went on to develop a stinging -- some say nihilistic -- critique of modern society.



He was the author of more than 50 works including: "The Mirror of Production" (1973), "Simulacra and Simulation" (1981), "America" (1986), and "The Spirit of Terrorism: And Requiem for the Twin Towers" (2002).
