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.

I recently did the packaging, illustration and hand lettering for the latest Starbucks compilation cd. It’s called Duke Ellington: In Gran Company. This album features Duke Ellington performing with various artists such as Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, John Coltrane and Count Basie. It’s a great album, you can get it at your local Starbucks. I had a blast designing this one, from the hand-drawn type (which I love to do) to the diecuts and varnishes. I think it came out pretty good.

Here is a little type treatment I did for Ten Paces and Draw. This illustration is for the character remix series. Last time I did The Bride from Kill Bill. This time the theme was Star Wars, the character I chose was Han Solo. This is my rendition of the biggest controversy of all regarding Han Solo. The truth is HAN SHOT FIRST. Period. By the way, I was not alone on this one, the other three illustrators picked the exact same phrase! Totally different styles! Here is mine, along with the initial sketch. Also, if you try really really hard you can kinda see something in the smoke.
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.
And Here is the sketch of the sketch poster.
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.
The theme for this week’s character redesign series over at Ten Paces and Draw was KillBill, one of my favorites movies. I couldn’t let it pass. I picked The Bride. While doing research and looking for images, I came across a picture of Uma Thurman inside the truck trying to get her feet to move. So I decided to do my illustration based on that specific scene. By the way, you should also check out the other illustrations, they are awesome.
