The Eye Collector & faces

Hello everyone! how are you doing?

I have been featured in The Eye Collector art magazine :D here: Eye Collector ......aaalso I'm working in new face necklaces but I want to do something different, this time I want the graphite to show up even if I add some color or maybe leave them as graphite drawings only? I don't know >< I can't make up my mind! what do you think? as always the picture doesn't show the actual detail that they have T0T 



I have so much that I want to do that I feel like going crazy @.@ I wish I could shush my brain more efficiently!!! haha last week I was moaning about having an artistic block now I want my head to stop thinking so much, go figure xD and in other things!! I try to post using the programming and it worked like 2 times after that only failures =.= don't know why tho- 

ok I hope everyone is doing well see you all soon! xoxo

7 series portraits

Hello everyone!

I think that I forgot to post this here OTL ........2 finished small portraits of a series of 7, acrylic on paper, the titles are inspired in "THE (something)" as in "The Choker" & "The Tear" I guess I got inspired by JYJ? O.o
haha

Anyways... the truth I was super sad when I painted these 2 I'm not sure if the rest are going to have the same feeling, I want them to since they are supposed to be a series but we'll see :)



Thanks for watching!!

Packaging for a new home in the UK


One of my pieces found a new home in the UK :D
I took this pic in a rainy day the light looks so weird O.o this is the packaging I did, is ok but I really think needs improvement, what concerns me the most is the transit between my hands and the final destination I want it to be useful, ecofriendly as much as possible*, light weigh  and protective....too much to ask? maybe haha but I want my babies to get safe to their new homes!! 


Also if I over do it and the costumer just throw it away, it would be a waste O.o I over think eveeerything! I know..... I better stop the bla bla ._______.

100% CHOCOLATE cafe


There's a place in Japan that I would be sooo thrill to visit *____* 100% Chocolate located in Kyobashi, Cho-ku, Tokyo Meiji Kyobashi Bldg. 100% Chocolate cafe is part of   Meiji Co, Ltd a japanese company that sells between other things all kinds of candy. The cafe and head quarters are in the same building.

A sugar lover as myself a place that is all about chocolate in Japan could not be missed!!!

They have 56 different flavors of solid chocolate square shaped, with number and code color 1-22 single bean chocolate made with cacao from a specific country, 23-27 variations of sweetener, 28-32 variations of milk, 33-40 discovery of Japan (blends of Japan's flavors) 41-48 European taste, 49-54 variations of spices & herbs 55-56 early blends of Meiji.

They also have the chocolate of the day (a different flavor everyday), the date is stamped on the chocolate @.@!





of course they have other stuff like cakes, drinks, ice creams...... chocolate and nothing but chocolate! 


Can this be more heavenly!?!? seriously! ><

Self promoting....I'm sorry......?

Normally I try to keep my journal not to personal and I was going to write a post about 100% chocolate (the all chocolate store in Japan) but I read something and I would like to write something about it here.

I was navigating over an amazing artist blog, one of her entry's caught my attention it was something about being sorry for posting such a self-promoting like entry then she clarify that to make it worth it she had found some useful info for artists that she was going to shared...............whut?!

Ok so I have read this and other peoples comments of the sort and I have to say that I do understand why people feels like that but are you serious? having to apologies for promoting your work is just ridiculous what are we supposed to do? not eat would be a good idea if you ask me but guess what? we cannot, in an ideal world all artists should be highly appreciated for their work! yay! and never ever even wonder what your going to eat tomorrow, or where you are going to live, or you have children? maybe they don't eat either! who knows! technology makes it all possible right? No! wrong! lol

Not only that, is also expected from the so call self promoter to give something interesting, useful, fun or just plain entertaining in exchange for such hideous fault!

Yeah I know I'm taking this to a exaggerated level but think it this way we don't like it neither! or at least I do not like it, is a tired, frustrating thing that takes an enormous amount of time that I could be using to create but it has to be done, wait what? spam? you see the same post over an over again? well yeah as in everything global time is all* you want to reach a large amount of people in the fastest way or be left behind in this super fast crazy world or maybe not?

For example when a movie, super big movie comes out something call promoting happens right?, and I don't see people complaining what so ever, you see the same add every 5 minutes on your tv or radio or even in the street as posters etc, but no one says hey you mister avenger why on earth are you stopping traffic with your self promoting thingy! you don't fool me! I know you do this to get me to give you my money and make you insanely, obscenely rich!! you are annoying! stop it already or word of honor I will unfollow you!  LOL ok I'm not comparing myself with a movie star but you know what I mean is not only ok people admire all that so from where comes all this apologising for self promoting your work as an artist, illustrator, musician, painter, designer,etc?

Also another thing I read today said: when something is pretty doesn't need marketing, touche!! so damn right in that case I'm the ugliest thing alive and my work is the ugliest thing alive and I need endless self promoting, that or drown myself in nuttela..................but hey! it's just my opinion it's well known that I got it wrong sometimes :) what do you think?

My kind of Fairy tale


Snow White and the Huntsman - Official Trailer #2  better than mirror mirror in my opinion.....

M83 - Wait


Send your dreams
Where nobody hides
Give your tears
To the tide
No time
No time
There's no end
There is no goodbye
Disappear
With the night
No time
No time
No time
No time
No time

POLICA - Amongster (Official Music Video)



Person of Interest - Identity crisis so totally brought me to this xD




Amongst the trees, amongst my freedom
My hands are red, I have been bleeding
What will happen, what will happen when I seduce you, teacher
Yes to greyhound rides, no to you by my side
I don’t need you, I don't need anyone
Come back
Come back

Fire burning down at monastery road
Why'd you do it lover throwing matches in my home
How I begged him to take other women on
But he don't know where to turn
He don't know who to call on
Is that all? Is that all?

Apologies like the birds in the sky
And even they are falling like the tears in my eyes
Everyone's asking, everyone's asking

Apologies like the birds in the sky
And even they are falling like the tears in my eyes
Everyone's asking where's your child in this plan
Why you gonna ask me if I’d cut off my own hand
Is that all? Is that all?

Sly, you’re still a liar
Your words are not enough
Sly, you’re still a liar
Your words are not enough
Sly, you’re still a liar
I need you to be rough
Sly, you’re still a liar
I need you to be rough
Sly, you’re still a liar
I need you to be rough
