El Tío Poppoff - Children book

a selfportrait of the autor

One of the books that I had when I was a child has had a big influence on my work. I used to sit for long periods of time watching the images on it, imagining and dreaming some day to make something like them, and also learn to fly.

This edition I have is from 1966, printed in Spain, the original title is " Onkel Poppoff kann auf Bäume fliegen". For some strange reason I always thought that Janosch - the autor and illustrator- was russian, of course when I grow up I discovered he is german, and seems still living. Despite of having the book I don't remember well the story now, perhaps I should read it again.

... and yes, I drew the princess's boobs :]



Somehing little before I start to work on my thesis.

My younger sister Lluvia is going to registre her chocolate brand next week and she asked me to make something for it. She gave me her idea and when I showed the drawing for this she loved it, even told me that should have the cheeks I make.

I was thinking to ask her as paiment some of those delicious chocolates she makes, but the doctor put me on a diet -damn ! -, so no sweets for me :/



Doing really nothing but wasting time


Little things

So, after being away for 2 months now I came back to my country... and I still feel hard to go back to my normal sleeping hours.

My new family of raccoons seems to be quite happy in their new home 

Also another new member of the doll community is Jacinto the cat. I got it at the "Queens" store in London, a funny place full of glitter, even the guy attending there was covered with, which seemed not to amuse him at all.

Finally but not last a set of different sizes of moleskine. Today I discovered the little one and couldn't resist to buy it.

How's your year going so far ?


CD cover

Next week my mum is going to record her 5th album in México City and she asked me to make the cover for it.

The album name is "A viajar se ha dicho!". It will be an album of music for children (she's a composer and a singer for that audience in particular), as part of a grant given by CONACULTA isntitution.

The songs are quite nice, played with "Gaban" group (folklore musicians) and my nephew and niece loves them so I guess is going to be well accepted ;D

This is how the cover looks so far:

The final touches will be drawned with techinal pen and ink.


New camera

Yesterday I bought a new camera. I decided to go to a pawn shop and have a look to see what I could find, and found this bargain. It was really cheap so I said "why not?".

The first photo I took was one of Marcel's face. He was sleeping there on my bed being most lazy and since he loves to be photograph and stay very still I gave a try.

Now I feel most happy with it and want to shot everything

Bang ! bang ! bang ! ;D


Where The Wild Things Are

I'm working on my entry for monster's moly. 

I've decided to make Maurice Sendak's monsters just because is one of my favourite books, but I've never seen it in real life :(  I can't wait to see the movie ^^

And now, one of my favourite Simpson's episodes with Sendak's wild things :D
