It is my opinion that weekends are absolutely sacred.
Weekends are the only two days that you have all for yourself. You can do whatever you wish. Sleep all day, club all night, go to the gym, eat out with friends, travel, go surfing (not me, though), watch countless movies (definitely me!), visit art galleries, etc. So it doesn’t come as a surprise that today (Saturday), I’m not a happy bunny. I’m at work, sitting on my desk and yes, although I work in advertising (which is supposed to be fun and creative and not serious at all), I still have to do weekends every now and then.
I decided that I was in urgent need of some cheering up, so I went through my illustration files and found these 3 pieces that I absolutely LOVED drawing. I produced them originally to go on the book, but in the end, they didn’t make the final cut. I still like them though as they were such a delight to make.
Ok, I admit that thinking about illustration and looking at these pieces did made me feel a little better, but not quite enough to be cheerful, so I decided to listen to some good music.
Result! There’s just something about listening to “Heaven knows I’m miserable now” that makes me instantly happy. Weird, right?
Have a great weekend, everyone.
Love from Lisbon.
To finalize my London Fashion Week illustration madness I give you Emilio de la Morena:

And here’s Mr. Start:
All reviews as well as beautiful photographs of the shows and lots of illustrations are in Amelia’s Magazine. Check it out!
Things will get back to normal now and I promise to talk about something else. There will be more next season. I can’t wait!
Wishing you an inspiring weekend from sunny Lisbon. (Spring is definitely here!)
As everyone knows, Japan is currently facing the most devastating tragedy in its history.
Illustration Rally has set up an illustration rally themed “Don’t give up Japan” and they are asking illustrators and artists to send artwork with messages of love and hope.
Beautiful illustration by the amazing Lea Wade
In addition to that, they are also asking for artwork donations to help raise money for the cause. Here’s what they said:
‘We are asking for artwork donations to sell to raise money for the relief effort. We would love any physical pieces at all, from cards and prints to full on characters and 3d! Anything you are willing to give we are happy to accept and all the profits made would go straight to the appeal. So if you want to take part or you have any questions please contact us at artwork-illustrationrally[at]hotmail.co.uk and we will send you further information about where to send your work.’
I have started working on a piece for the rally and have also got in touch with them about donating artwork. – If you’re interested in donating, taking part in the rally or just helping out in general, check out Illustration Rally. It’s very simple to get involved and they also have links to all the major charities.
