1.- Last week Spoonflower fabrics contest was “Squid”. For some inexplicable reason, I didn’t show you my submission… and I didn’t ask you to vote for me! Weird right? Well, this was my submission. And you want to know something? I finished 2nd! Go cuteness ;)
2.- And because cuteness is always good, I decided to participate in the Project Selvage, A competition to find Michael Miller Fabrics’ next licensed designer! Cool, right? Well, the theme for the competition is Baby Boy Print, and I think boys always love Dinosaurs, right? Here my submission:

3.- I always wanted to draw a whale, and finally last week I finished one I start like 3 weeks ago. My dear whale looks like this:
And after scanning and coloring in illustrator, I uploaded the print in my Society6 shop and now created some cool things like the laptop skin, iPhone case and t-shirt. Mr. Harper picked the name (because that is his job in this business!). Meet Deep Violet:
4.- Last weekend I had an amazing fun showcase at The Stage in the Miami Design District. The picture is really bad because (as usual!) I didn’t have my camera and my iPhone 3 it’s not so good for taking pictures, but you can get the idea of how the wall looks.
5.- Talking about shows. I’m looking forward to create a lot of art right now. I have been trying to find a balance between creating original artwork on canvas and creating art to license. Right now I’m feeling the need to paint. To paint A LOT. I love to paint for the sake of painting, but I realize I’m a lot of more productive and a lot more focus if I have a specific goal in my mind. Right now I’m looking for places where I can show/sale my work. Galleries, stores, restaurants, bar, lounge, you name it... I want to be in a group show or in a solo show! I want to paint AND have a place to show the artwork. You know or you own a place where you my artwork fit? Well, send me an email and we can start planning! ;)
6.- And talking about painting. I have these 2 canvases looking at me here in my studio...
I dont usually paint in large scale. The biggest piece I had made is a 24x20 elephant (my actual favorite piece). But these 2 canvases have been patiently waiting for me. 24x30. Hhhmmm... I think I’m ready to tackle this project this week, but I don’t know what to paint! What you think? Suggestions?
Happy random Monday!!!
