Insanely busy couple of days. A million things to do, so little time. I’m sure everyone’s felling the same thing. End of the year is always this crazy, isn’t it?
I’m currently working on a couple of very fun and very colorful Christmas illustrations. I’ll post them here as soon as they get published. In the meantime, here’s a little red and black marker scribble on recycled paper. I love drawing on “weird” paper. It always gives a different tone and texture to the drawing. I actually think this used to be an envelope of some sort. I probably stole it from someone’s desk at work. ♥
Some people are fascinating.
The other day I took my favorite pair of winter boots to get fixed (the zipper had broken). Don’t ask me how, but the shoe maker (this really lovely but extremely ancient man) managed to lose them. “How can someone lose a pair of boots?” you ask. Well, apparently it’s possible. So with that in mind, I did this little scribble. Maybe it’ll bring me luck and my favorite shoes back?
I am so excited. I’ve been looking forward to this post for AGES.
A few months ago I received the most amazing assignment EVER: to produce pieces to be featured in Amelia’s Compendium of Fashion Illustration.
This is the first time my work will be featured in a book, an actual BOOK, and needless to say, I am over the moon!
The book features 30 illustrators, many of whom have collaborated with Amelia’s Magazine at some point. I know the work of some of them and I can tell you: it’s brilliant stuff. I am so honored to be included, I can’t begin to describe it.
The illustrations portray some of the most amazing ethical fashion designs out there, so it’s even more fantastic: art and fashion with an ethical/environmental focus. What’s not to love?
The official book launch will be in London in January/2011 (Parteeey!) but it is already available to pre-order here. Honestly, I can’t think of a more wonderful Christmas present.
// Hoje eu tenho a melhor novidade do mundo.
Alguns meses atrás eu fui convidada a produzir ilustrações para serem incluídas no livro: Amelia’s Compendium of Fashion Illustration. Um LIVRO! Nem posso acreditar.
Se trata de uma coleção dos trabalhos de 30 ilustradores de moda espalhados pelo mundo e foca em design de moda ética, que é um estilo de design que segue os princípios da ética ambiental (esperem ver muita coisa relacionada a reciclagem de materiais, tecidos orgânicos, fair trade, etc). É um projeto maravilhoso e uma honra enorme ter sido incluída. Além do que, eu conheço o trabalho de alguns dos outros ilustradores e é sensacional.
O lançamento oficial do livro vai ser em Londres em Janeiro/2011 mas ele já está disponível para venda aqui.

After a rather hectic week, I am looking forward to a quiet and peaceful weekend. I am planning to sleep very long hours under the blankets, to sip red wine with my boyfriend, to listen to beautiful music and to draw something happy and sweet. Weekends were made for creating and daydreaming. I cherish these quiet times with all my heart.
How about you? Any plans for a beautiful weekend?
I wish you love and many wonderful moments. ♥
