This is a special edition of my Family Poster.
September is very special time for us as we celebrate the independence day on the 18th. The ‘Fiestas Patrias‘ (National Holidays) are one of the most popular celebrations of the year. Usually highlights typical traditions of national identity: music, dances and traditional dishes.
So I decided to dedicate this week family poster with traditional dresses: we are huasos and huasas, traditional characters usually countryman and skilled horseman who are an important part of our Chilean Folkloric Culture. You can see them around on this holidays dancing Cueca, our national dance.
Chile, this is our tribute, always thinking of you, our beautiful country – despite of being far and away you will always be in our heart… Viva Chile!
I know I didn’t published any poster last week, too busy around here. But here we are again with another Family Poster!
This week one of our favorites books/movies: The Lord of the Rings :)
As usual each of us choose their character:
Sebastian is Aragorn,
Maribel is Arwen,
Sergio is Legolas,
Florencia is a little hobbit girl.
I hope you like it and be ready for next week’s family poster – it will be very special. See you then! :)
I am so excited and happy with this one, this week we are: The Beatles! :D
Who knows me well is aware that I am a huge Beatles fan, and my kids has grown up listening to them – they love them too, not only because I said so… xD
As usual we all choose our favorite character, Florencia was the first one to pick George (cute little girl), then I decided to be John, my favorite and all times idol. Sebastian and Sergio wanted to be Paul, so Sebastian pick Ringo at the end to let Sergio to be Paul :)
Sebastian as Ringo Starr
Maribel as John Lennon
Sergio as Paul McCartney
Florencia as George Harrison
Another week another family Illustration, this week we are Super Heroes!
The boys are more into Super Heroes than the girls on the house, but we have learned to know more about them thanks to movies, TV series, etc. Each of us have choose their favourite one, and this time we are Super Heroes from DC Comics.
Sebastian is Batman,
Maribel is Super Woman (or Super Girl)
Sergio is Rorschach
Florencia is Wonder Woman
I hope you like this week illustration, I will see you around next week with a new one :)
The family series for this week is… Game of Thrones!!
Our story with Game of Thrones started before the TV series, when Sebastian got the first book in a Maastricht Library for Sergio. Then the TV show came along and we started watching it because Sergio told us that the book was awesome.
We don’t miss an episode, we love the story, the characters, the fantasy and the magic.
For the poster we choose to be House Stark:
Sebastian as Eddard (Ned) Stark – Lord of Winterfell
Maribel as Lady Catelyn Stark – Ned Stark’s wife
Sergio as Robb Stak – the King of the North
Florencia as the little and brave Arya Stark
The Sergio is reading the fifth book already “A Dance with Dragon” and Sebastian is reading the second one of the series “A Clash of Kings”. I think at this point I should start reading them too! :)
A couple of days ago I published the first illustration of this series. The idea is to dress up ourselves with a different theme on each poster, that can be a movie, a TV series, a book, super heroes, etc.
As you can see we are all dressed up as Star Wars characters! :D
Sebastian as Han Solo.
Maribel as Leia Organa.
Sergio as Boba Fett.
Florencia as Yoda.
I had one of those ideas that you just can’t stop thinking about, you can’t wait to get your hands on, finish it and share it with everyone. My new personal project is a series of illustrations about my own family. This is the first one of the series:
My family Series #1
I was planning to have to whole series finished when publish it but I couldn’t wait and also my husband suggest to release one poster at a time.
The illustration was made on Illustrator CS6. Next illustration will be revealed in a couple of days, if I can wait :)
