Remember this post about my illustration process? Last week I got samples of the printed book on the mail, and even though I'm a bit sad that all those fancy meats on top of the illustration got lost on the final cover design, it's always very rewarding to see the final work on print. I love working on book covers like this :D

I also designed and knit this minimalist tweedy grey pair of mittens for my dear friend Ada. She got them just in time for her birthday and they fit her very well, I hope they keep her warm during the cold polish winter.

Walking girl

Yesterday I got in the mail this awesome print by Ping Zhu, and it's already hanging on my studio. I really admire her work, she has the best line work and dry brush technique. She makes me want to be unfaithful to my watercolors and have a fling with gouache.

Also, I finished knitting that striped cowl in the softest merino yarn. It's a seamless loop, the ends were grafted together and you can't notice where the ends meet. And I was interviewed here, only in spanish, sorry!

Ten Paces & Draw. Cocktails

This week I participated on the Ten Paces and Draw swap for the first time and it was so much fun! In case you don't know the project, "Ten Paces" it's a swap between illustrators with a weekly theme. You send your sketch and in a week you have to make a final illustration based in someone else's sketch. I got a sweet one from Tyler Parker and this is the result. It was great to get out of my comfort zone for a while and draw a silly underwater cocktail affair.  Click here to see the rest of the swap!

Also, the story of Adrian Tomine's first New Yorker cover.

Since I obviously don't have enough striped tops in my wardrobe (*coughs*) I decided to knit myself another one. This marinière is knit in a super soft and warm alpaca/merino blend and I made up the design myself, all in one piece with no seams following a method called "contiguous". It's the second sweater I design like this and it's so fun and rewarding, I daydream of being a knitwear designer :D

I've also been on a pizza kick lately. I discovered this no-knead, whole wheat pizza dough recipe on the Joy the baker blog and it's so easy to make you have no excuse not to. The crust is thin and tasty, topped wth homemade sauce and simple ingredients, makes a damn fine pizza.

In other news, I finished the book I was working on (yay!) and I redesigned this place as well as my website/porftolio. I hope you like it!
