Illustration & Lettering (2011)

Inspired by the book "the hunting of the snark".
I used the idea of a fictional creature to represent the will of some people
for the limited edition sneakers.

Inspired by the Spanish song “A quien le importa!” from the 1980s band Alaska and Dinamara .
I used a brush and oil colours to design a typeface where each letter is a different style. When combined together, the letters are transformed into an illustration, much like a mosaic. The end effect is an image when seen from afar and a readable message when viewed up close.

Based in the Nietzsche's sentence, "Monkeys are too good for man too have evolved from them". The illustration is inspired by the detail of the Sistine Chapel ceiling of Michelangelo representing the hands of God and Adam. In that case I wanted to represent the hand of the man in the God's role and the monkeys as the creature of the earth.

Experimental poster made with pigment.

Mix media: Black ink and digital.

The illustration is inspired by Antoni Gaudi's arquitecture and his uniqueness.
This project is a reflection of futuristic cities around the world.
Globalization makes cities appear homogeneous: architecture, building size, lifestyle, culture, etc.
Mix media: watercolours, oils and digital.

I designed "variable font" as a variable message system based on a moving LED structure. Each character consists of six circles and each circle is divided into 12 pieces. Each circle is able to move independently, which gives the system millions of possible colours and shapes.
