Triple-faced man

The triple faced man. One of my recurrent ideas. Note the double-pointed nose of the figure on the right (inspired by Gerard Depardieu).

Tiger mural, Glasgow

Here is a little time lapse video about the 3 days:

Commissioned by Tigerbeer, realised by McFaul Studio. I was part of the team painting this... (check the pictures if you can find somebody with a white hat). Temperatures throughout the 2 days have been pretty much the same or lower than those in a fridge (-4 C, +4C), but I had so much fun that I told my hands just to keep painting :)
The address is
Custom House Quay
Clyde Street
Glasgow, UK
Funny coincidence, I'm a tiger according to the chinese calendar.
Looking forward to the next mural!

Xmas cards '09

Moo is a great service, I couldn't help using it for some xmas cards which will get around the world. Tried some crafty looking cards and a couple of digital ones. With an extra 3$ you can easily get some recycled paper envelopes.

The Reverse Engineer
He is smart, expert No.1 in tearing anything into pieces.

The Chutney Maker
He is a real artist, and there is much much hard work and struggle for inspiration hidden behind a bunch of graceful jars that may entice you at the farmers' market

People in the Streets

One of my favourite subjects: random people, and if you look closely you'll realise that each one of them is the centre of the world!

Black paint

Public libraries are good sources if you want to use your imagination and see or read about new things. Last time I went there I got this huge hard cover book about prints and drawings: it is an old book printed some decades ago...
On the same evening I was sitting in front of the computer catching up with forgotten emails and enjoying some ice cream and then I thought I'd do something different like painting. I used the old book for some subjects since my painting style is rather "simple", still influenced by toddler and elementary school experiences :)
Used some cheap acrylic paints from Stationery Warehouse, and liked the results. Look forward to trying the colour ones and possibly larger size of paper.

Freedom Hour Illustration

It's been one of those cold days where you want to be inside in a warm and toasty room, but for some reason you have to go to work and maybe wait half an hour for a good old bus to come and pick you up. Though I haven't had much time lately for illustrations, I thought I'd post something I did recently thinking about one of my favourite songs (by Italian songwriter De Andre'). The title is Nella mia Ora di Liberta, which could be translated "In my freedom hour" and explores the theme of equality in such environments as prisons (society), and yet the chance for the individual to be different from his jail wardens and the possibility of camaraderie between prisoners (or workers).

Hollow? .....Illustration Friday

Last Saturday I was meant to do something I have been procrastinating for about a month: starting to write an essay for the end of the contemporary theory course, but the sketchbook tempted me with the possibility to tweak a meaningless sketch of bendy trees I made recently...
I was having breakfast and multi-tasking in front of the computer, when I thought: ok, I'll add a cavity to one of the trees and that will do for something hollow . Then I added more and more details, and finished just a few seconds before coming across the Flight of the Bumblebee, which would make a good soundtrack for the topic.

Actually, Danny Elfman's Beetlejuice theme could be another good soundtrack for this!
