Quiz the season





Last year I illustrated an 8 page quiz for the 2014 Holiday special of American Girl Magazine, but I haven't been able to share these until now. These were o much fun to make, specially the girl walking the dogs! This is a selection of my faves, but you can see the whole spread (with lots more spot illos) on my website.

Dalahäst mittens


Things have been a bit crazy in the beginning of this new year. 2015 started with a new super fun commission, and I've been glued to my desk since then. However, I still managed to knit these Dalahäst mittens for a dear friend in Canada. I hope they keep her hands warm and cozy!

Recent sketches



Here are some little drawings from my sketchbook I never posted here, all done with watercolors and experimenting with linework. Lately I've been sharing more of this "sketchy" stuff on my Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr and I've neglected this space a little... so, follow me over there if you want to stay updated!

Autumn is coming


Inspired by the current season, I designed this pattern with watercolor leaves. You can get it as a great number of products (like tote bags, phone cases, prints, mugs...) on my Society6 store.

Bitchface


Last week I talked a little about my work and process at the Open File event organized by Garabato Fest, a super fun Illustration Festival from Sevilla, Spain. I created this Bitchface illustration to show the attendants the different steps I take from the pencil sketch (or fully digital sketch) to the finished illustration, and all the small tweaks and changes it goes through in the process. Now you can see it on this handy GIF :)

Le Rouge

The finished illustration from this Instagram sneak peek. It's loosely based on a photo of Jeanne Damas from The Coveteur.

Fig Newton

Just another little sketch of Fig Newton, the magical creature that belongs to my friend Charlyn from Hopscotch. Check out her amazing painted wooden dolls on her Etsy store :)

Been caught stealing

I just came back from a wonderful trip to Finland. I've absolutely fallen in love with Helsinki's architecture, nature, people and food, and now I daydream about living there... September has been a hectic month between work, attending a friend's wedding in Sicily and the Finland trip, and now I have six rolls of film to scan and share. I also Instagrammed the hell out of it all.

Meanwhile, here's a silly illustration of a cookie stealing kitty. Inspired by this.
