I was recently contacted by NIKE MEXICO to create a poster for them. They were promoting the new LIBERTY OF LONDON Nike line. They explained that they had chosen 3 people to wear and represent the line so they could market it through them as spokespeople. The three were Paola Espinoza, a (very young) Mexican Olympic high diver who did us proud at the Olympics by bringing in BRONZE and the Mexican group HA*ASH which consists of two Mexican vocalist sisters, Hanna and Ashley. The colors in the campaign were purple and gold and they explained they needed the girls to be drawn wearing the shoes. Here's the final product:
Working with the NIKE peeps in Mexico was awesome and very fun :)
Hello! I'm very frustrated with my blog. Every time I want to post, it gives me a hard time saying it doesn't recognize me >:( Argh. Hey, so remember my pinata design? Well it got sculpted out and turned into a real pinata and shown at the Museo de Arte Popular in Mexico along with many other artists including my hubby, Jorge's! Check it out!
After, tadah! Woaaaaah! Rad!
The setup at the museum.
The day of the opening. Wish I could have been there :(
A big, big thanks to Cecy, Dave, Clarisa y Jorge at Vertigo Galeria for putting all this event together. It was so much fun! I hope they do it again.
Hello Muchicos! Long time no see. Here's a little something I've been up to. Jorge and I were contacted by Mr. Jorge Alderete to see if we wanted to participate in an upcoming art show featuring piñatas in Mexico City. A bunch of artists got picked and asked to create their own piñata design and then it would be sculpted out by piñata artisans in Mexico City to be exibited in the prestigious Museo de Arte Popular (please, please go if you haven't been, it's so very, very worth it). HOW COOL IS THAT I ASK YOU!? Here is my contribution along with an illustration they asked for us to accompany our design.
PS PS: Luka is featured as the last little boy in the Piñata Parade :)
Hello anyone! I apologize for the lack of posts. Really I do. I've been a little caught up making sculptures for an upcoming Day of the Dead art show in San Diego entitled "Dia de Tus Muertos". I'm also doing a piece for a book in Mexico City paying an homage to Gabilondo Soler also known as Cri-Cri, the great Mexican children's song composer! A handful of artists were picked out to do their versions of a song given to them. Mine is "Cucurumbe", a song about a little girl who doesn't want to be black, she wants to be white like the moon, the shells on the beach and the foam on the shoreline. One day a dapper little fish wearing a bowler hat comes up to her and exclaims " Goodness child! Can't you see that you are beautiful as you are?" One of my upcoming goals is to have an art show based on Cri-Cri's songs, so this might just be the first step in that direction! I hope you like it :)
