Quo Magazine, Mexico DF

'

This is an illustration for Quo magazine in Mexico-DF. Just wikipedia the name and you'll find some useful information on their Mexican and Spanish sites. I came across this magazine through my neighbor.Its about science, health, psychology, and many other things I'm still trying to understand. If you're a native spanish speaker it should be no problem to read, but if you are "learning" spanish as a second language like me, it is challenging. However I welcome it. Thanks to art director Rodrigo Olmos.

Ascension




These past few months, in addition to freelance, some teaching, and the economy I had to go out and get another gig. I think most artists have to do something in order to pay bills and survive. The company I have been working with Ascension Tile and Stone has been great, the owner has been doing masterful works for decades, and it is very inspiring to step outside of my regular thought/work process and see a master craftswoman at work. Big up to "Smurf" for hooking it up.Thx Bash for putting up with my blabbering. Ascension does great bathroom and kitchen tiles for businesses, offices, and homes. The owner and chief craftswoman is also an artist, so if you are looking to have a mosaic in your relaxing happy place, holler at her.

Typography 3


W is for Wayne Shorter. Took me several hours to do this by hand.But type is fun...

Metate


Metate, metate, I've been working on ideas for a Tamales Company owned by my neighbor and I'm finally getting down to business with my ideas. This is one of the thought process and part of the diabolical, mistakes and all.
