David Kamp Identity

I was commissioned by the very talented and good pal David Kamp to redesign his Sound Design Identity in a fun and character driven direction, after a few different options he chose the one at the top on this post, along with it I created a speaker-character as an additional element to play with the new identity. Hopefully we will see it animated as well!

Curious & Curiouser / Sneak Peak

Since its publication in 1865, Lewis Carroll's ‘Alice's Adventures in Wonderland' has enchanted the world with its curious characters and its even curiouser tale. It has been over more than a century and the fantastic world of Alice continues to captivate children and adults. With the highly anticipated film adaptation by Tim Burton hitting theaters later this month, Gallery Nucleus had invited artists of the feature film and beyond to create their vision of the iconic story and celebrate it's lasting legacy.

Opening Night only, glimpse into the creative brilliance of Disney Studios as exclusive concept art, production, and film stills will be shown from the upcoming Alice In Wonderland!

This is a sneak peak of what is my piece for the show Curiouser & Curiouser: Inspired by Alice in Wonderland'

Halloween Decorations 2011

This year we were running out of time for Halloween decorations so my wife has the last-minute brilliant idea of recycling some of the packaging paper we kept from our recent move and made me draw a few characters with black ink to place behind our windows, here some of those drawings. At the end the kids were pretty happy with our improvised-crafted decorations! Even they helped out, check out the fellow behind the pumpkin.

Design Mexico Magazine

One of my latest projects includes the cover design for the Mexican magazine México Design, issue 19th, one of the main articles is about ecologist and sustainable design solutions and that's what my illustration is based of. Here the final results and the quick preliminary sketch I did to show my idea. And in the next issue number 20th I'm featured with an interview and artwork showcase :)

The Lovers, the Dreamers, and Me - A Jim Henson Tribute Exhibition

"Jim Henson's accomplishments have left a widespread and enduring impression on generations of admirers since his first endeavors in the late 1950s. From his iconic and colorful cast on Sesame Street to the groundbreaking fantasy Dark Crystal, Henson's imagination and ingenuity have ignited a path that many others have since followed.

Timed with the release of Disney's The Muppets motion picture and news on a forthcoming Henson biopic, Gallery Nucleus has invited more than 30 artists to pay homage to this universally beloved visionary whose inspiring concepts and characters have impacted our culture in a monumental way. The collection will showcase a variety of mediums from a roster of professionals who are also genuine fans."

When I received the invitation to participate, "The Dark Crystal" was my immediate impulse to execute a piece from, when I first saw it during my childhood all the magical characters were stuck in my mind for a while, specially those legendary Mystics. So I did a piece based in UrSu. This is the first time I explore a dimensional approach in my artwork :-)

Spaceman Tattoo!

Cecília Papi a reality-show star from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil recently tagged me in Facebook with an image of her tattoo, an illustration of a happy spaceman I did while ago. Never considered my art would make a good tattoo but now that I see it is actually not bad, really fun to see somebody wearing permanently your drawings :)

Since she is part of a TV reality-show I wonder if her tattoo process made it in to the show. (See bellow)

Thanks Cix!

...And YES! She sent me a video, this made it in the Show:
