Last friday, Zander magazine team launched the last issue, with a cover illustration by Alfonso Zapico, author of “Dublines”. The alternative cover author is “El Irra”, a comic illustrator from Euskadi.
The party included a drawing battle in which I took part, but as always, I had a superhero theme for the drawing (last time it was Iron Man, now Thor…) and I was out in the first round :/ Maybe next time!
Salem, my albino cat is my muse for the all day inspiration. Here is the proof!! One of my all time favourite posters, a 19th century French one by Théophile Steinlen has been reconverted in a Salem homage!

I’ve been playing these days with an ipad app that helps you to create a handwritten font.
This is my font, a handmade Helvetica, really cool to make your small texts (I think it works really well in 12pt or even less…) look a bit informal without losing the helvetica perfection!Download Handvetica Font
I am working on a complete restyling proposal for a real brand and its packaging. I wont say the kind of product yet… Just that it is an international company, based in Asturias, with a wide range of food products.
By now, I alredy have the color palette I will use for the three main products.
Fuzzy bunnies, big-eyed girls, meat, magic, and mystery
Pinxit, whose title refers to the Latin term meaning “painted by,” is organized by the themes of Ryden’s major exhibitions—The Meat Show, Bunnies & Bees, The Tree Show, and so on—and includes collected essays by Yoshitomo Nara, Carlo McCormick, and others, and a new essay by culture critic Kristine McKenna. Ryden’s paintings and drawings are reproduced using the finest technique available, and over a dozen of the paintings are foldouts that open to a staggering 150 cm (59 inches) across.
