Sherlock Holmes and John Watson - Custom Couples Illustration

26 August, 2016 | Illustration

“I cannot live
without brain-work.
What else is there to live for?”

Sherlock Holmes

I am just so thrilled to share with you this couples illustration. I have to confess I haven’t read any Sherlock Holmes book (I know, shame on me) but I have watched the Sherlock TV series with Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, and I love it!

This illustration is quite special since is the first gay couple I do, and I can’t wait for my first order to come through. You can find this custom illustration available on my Etsy Shop.

Chilean Cities Map Poster – Illustration

Chilean Cities Map Poster – Illustration

10 November, 2015 | Design, Illustration

When I moved to my new house in Stokes Valley, Lower Hutt, I wanted to create a special poster I could display in the entrance of my new home. If you are not familiar with me, I am originally from Chile but I live in New Zealand with my family. So I created this Chilean map in which I placed the name of the cities inside to make the shape of the country. I made sure I placed the cities in the right location, and I spent hours looking at the Chilean map so I could make it as accurate as possible.

The map has been on my entrance door since September 2012, and I absolutely love it… This Illustration is available on my Etsy Shop

 

Cuando me mudé a mi nueva casa en Stokes Valley, Lower Hutt, quería crear un poster especial para poner en la entrada de mi nuevo hogar. Si usted no está familiarizado conmigo, yo soy de Chile, pero vivo en Nueva Zelanda con mi familia. Fue así que decidí crear este mapa de Chile en el que puse los nombre de las ciudades en su interior para crear la forma del país. Me aseguré de ubicar las ciudades en su lugar correcto y debo decir que pasé horas mirando el mapa de Chile para hacerlo lo más preciso posible.

El mapa ha estado en la entrada de mi casa desde septiembre de 2012, y me encanta… Esta ilustración está disponible en mi tienda Etsy

My family poster series #3 – Game of Thrones

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

Game of Thrones family poster

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! :)

My family poster series #2 – Star Wars

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

Starring:
Sebastian as Han Solo.
Maribel as Leia Organa.
Sergio as Boba Fett.
Florencia as Yoda.
