I share most of my work over at my Instagram, it’s just easier and faster for me. I usually just snap a pic and in two seconds I can share it, no need to scan anything. However, I decided to scan some pages from my sketchbook  so you can get a better idea of what my sketches look like up-close.

AIGA Seattle

June 23, 2012

This year the AIGA Seattle is celebrating its 25th year anniversary. To celebrate, AIGA threw a party, along with an exhibition called The Future of Design. I designed a poster for the event. My poster is based on the idea that no matter when, the main idea of a design, it will always start with a simple sketch.

It All Starts With A Sketch

And Here is the sketch of the sketch poster.

It all started like this.

In addition, I invited my good friend Emiliano Molina to be part of the project. He has been a good friend of mine for years and he is also an excellent industrial/graphic designer. Check out his poster.

My poster right next to Emiliano’s.

Here’s a sketch I did a few days ago. Like I’ve said before, I’m not that good with portraits, but I decided to give it a shot anyways and try to do one of my favorite artists, Diego Rivera. I still don’t know what I’m going to do with it.


Día de muertos

November 3, 2011

Here’s a small sketch celebrating my favorite holiday. Day of the dead. It’s just a sketch, someday maybe I’ll finish it. We’ll see.


Work in Progress

October 16, 2011

Just trying to post some stuff I’ve been working on. I’ve been busy with freelance so I haven’t had a chance to work on personal stuff that much. Here’s a sketch I’m hopefully going to have ready for the Day of the Dead.
Maybe I’ll make some prints.

Here is a smal illo I pulled from my sketchbook. I used some watercolor and my favorite pen, the Faber-Castell PITT artist pen.
I put some more pages from my sketchbook over at my website. I love looking at other people’s sketchbooks, so I decided to put up some of my own.

I have been super busy lately, my full-time job and my freelancing are taking all my time. But every once in a while I mange to squeeze a sketch or two in my sketchbook. Last year I went to the Seattle Show and got one of those four-color Bic pens and I’ve been using it quite a bit, it’s pretty fun. Here are some sugar skulls I did last week.
