Art in the street.

Superlost
I found this poster in the street last night. The character says: "I'm not lost, I'm Superlost!". I don't know the name of the artist, it's not signed.
It made me smile. I feel relieved and happy when I read it.

Lazy


I feel a little bit lazy today.
This morning the sun was here but now the day turned grey.
I have a lot of illustratioon work to do but I want to sew...but I can´t...I have to work.
Tablecloth
This weekend I finished a new tablecloth in linen and I sewed some red cotton thread on it. I like it. I like red.
Stamping
I try to stamp but I don't know how to do it properly. Maybe I'm accustomed to silkscreening. I can't find any stamp ink pad for fabric here in Spain. I found in the net something called Versacraft or Fabrico. Does any of you know them or use them? maybe I should try.
I wish you all a great day and all of you in the USA a great Thanksgiving day!

Well, definitely I can't understand all the problems and complexity of all the different internet browsers! Some of you have been very kind letting me know about the problem when viewing my webshop. After trying to fix it I can only say that I can't fix it and I don´t know why Internet Explorer doesn't want to show my webshop propperly. It's very frustrating. If anyone has a good idea or solution that could be helpfully(more helpfully than mine, which is to bump my computer with a pillow), I thank you in advance.

For all of you who pursue your dreams: Trust22.

I've been bussy finishing some projects:
Lovebunny
Lovebunnies.

A Bunny for Inês.


A Wolfboy for a boy named Jonatan.

It's raining outside. The sun is gone. I'm inside the house sketching and having a cup of tea. I try not to worry today about our apartment-search. It takes the most part of my energy.

The paper sample from Lovely Design is here. I'm so happy! Beautiful papers. I look at them trying to know what they want to become.

I went to Barcelona last weekend. With plenty of time to walk. It was rainy. It was a big change because in Madrid it's still warm and sunny.



I found a choral from Stockholm singing in the Iglesia del Pi(Pine's Church).

I met Teresa Giménez.A beautiful person with great stories to tell. Like this one. I'm waiting for her new web to be ready!

...

Last Saturday night in Madrid was the "Noche en Blanco" (expresion that means to have a sleepless night). All the museums stayed open and there were dancing performances, live music, theater, huge screen video installations, etc... in the street, all night long until 6 am.
We went to a park nearby home, "el Templo de Debod". There was a concert. The name Templo de Debod comes from the egyptian temple, dedicated to the Gods Amon and Isis, that was installed here in 1972. It was a gift from Egypt to Spain for its help building the dam in Asuan. Each country that collaborated in this construction was gifted with one temple. I love this place, it's one of my favourites.
Noche en Blanco
We kept walking to the Sabatini Gardens in the Royal Palace. There was a stage with a dance spectacle. It was kind of cool and raining a little bit but the place is beautiful at night!


Sunday was a bit sleepy but I finished an illustration for a contest and the first piece of a new project of portraits.

And today I go to the Book Fair (LIBER). Books, books, books!!

Smile

Caperucita
On a bad day I usually cheer myself up while brushing my teeth. It's an excuse to stand in front of a mirror and pull silly faces imitating animals such as Tigers, mice, crocodiles... even the big Tyrannosaurus Rex!! That never fails to put a smile on my face!
But this week there is no need. I want to say a big THANK YOU to all the people who voted for me to receive a Plummie Award! I'm really flattered!! Thanks! Your inspiration and support is greatly appreciated! Thanks!
(my boyfried thanks you for not having to look at my silly faces this morning :D)
Lu and Debbie made the fabric collage! Great work!

My home (mi casa)
It rained so much today! I like when it rains, mostly after alls these months of heat. My plants are happy too!
I seized the oportunity and finished my new project: The House.
The family is silkscreened on white felt and I used the flowery fabrics to make the windows and the roof. As always it is for hanging on the wall as decoration.
