Something fishy

A couple days ago I posted this photo on Instagram, and here's the final sketch! While I have used both gouache and watercolor a lot, I had never tried mixing both before, and I love the result. Best of both worlds. Also, adding an outline gives me more freedom while painting, because it wraps everything together and lets me embrace imperfections. I see more of this in the future :)

Island Life stickers

A few months ago, I illustrated all these sea critters for a fun sticker set, Island Life, published by Peaceable Kingdom.

I hope you're having a fun summer!

Good Vibrations

Sweet tooth

I finished the book I was working on the other day, yay!! I'm super excited with how it turned out and I can't wait to see it on print, though we'll have to wait almost a year for that. Meanwhile, here's a couple of illustrations that weren't used in the end, but I liked them too much not to share. It's always so much fun to illustrate food :D

Discrepancies II

I recently made this gouache painting as a very special commission. I've heard she liked very much :)

Miranda

I've almost finished my new book, only one spead left and I'll be heading to the Pyrenees for a much needed vacation. This book has been the most fun so far, but after two months working exclusively in the computer, I miss my gouache and brushes. I need to get my hands dirty again!

Meanwhile, this is a lady I had forgotten in my sketchbook, hope you like her!
