I realized I haven't really been posting up a lot of artwork, so here are a couple of more sketches from my sketchbook. I hope you like :)

Eddie and Brandy

One of the coolest couples I've met in past years are Eddie and Brandy. They compliment each other like a ying and a yang. They are both quirky, funny and good natured. They also live for each other.

One of the coolest things that could have happened this year happened. On a warm and beautiful 18th of May, the two married at LA's gorgeous Arboretum.

This warms my heart because I truly believe they were born to be together and when you witness the union of two people with this kind of destiny, it's a one of a kind moment in life and I feel fortunate and lucky to have been able to be there to share their happiness on their special day.

Congratulations to the both of you!

Brandy's Fantastical Bachelorette Party!

So a couple of days ago, my friend Brandy had her bachelorette party at The Edison, an amazing bar in downtown LA. Prior to being an amazing bar though, this place was LA's first private power plant, so it made it all the more interesting. It's interior design is incredible, staying as true as possible to it's original concept, the entire place is a combination of "industrial" and "glamorous".

The theme that night was the 1920's.

STOP! Flappah time!

Did I mention that there was a show there that night? There were acrobats, stilt walkers, dancers and actors all doing their thing. The performers went from room to room putting on little skits for the guests.

Don't ask

Amazing dancers, especially the one on the right!

We had a couple of drinks and had some flatbread with sauces (they were actually really, really good...or maybe I was just hungry...or a little tipsy)

Mindy "stealin' " some elixir

All in all it was a great time. If you weren't there admiring the interior of the place, or watching the old black and white 1920's films being projected on the white walls, or ogling the acrobats, or drinking and were simply hanging out with a couple of good friends wishing Brandy the best in her upcoming adventure called marriage, and that's what that night was really about, no?

Happy Bachelorette Brandy!

My Art Show...Yay!

It came and went by so fast, I don't even remember certain parts of it! All I can say was that it was an incredible experience!
I'm so thankful to everyone who supported me during this entire ordeal from the start! First and foremost my wonderful husband, Jorgito! He was with me through thick and thin and I love him so much for that

My super Jorge!

Second, a big hello and thank you to the boys at the SUBTEXT gallery for allowing me to show my work in the first place. Don and Dylan, you guys are kickass!!!

The boys: Dylan on the left Don on the right.

And third and best part of it all...a big GRACIAS to all who came that night and all those who wished me much luck and happiness even though they couldn't be there that day. Thank you Cheekymonkeys!

The gallery was pretty darn full and everyone seemed to be having a good time. My mom, dad, Karla (thankyou Karla!) and Gabe and older sister Ady and her family were there along with my mother and father in law and I'm proud to say the show is close to selling out! It makes me happy to know that I made pieces that will make other people happy. I think that's what really matters, no?

Below are pictures of the pieces in the show. I hadn't posted any before because I wanted them to be a surprise. What's the point of showing everything before the big event right?

Mexico City Rocks My Socks!

Mexico City was so awesome! So, the purpose of our little visit was to go down and present EL TIGRE as a show that could help sell or promote Mexican brands such as SABRITAS or LALA. Most of the previous meetings we had had with the people down in Mexico were through email so when we arrived it was so nice to put a face to the "voice".

We were greeted so enthusiastically by Darlene (Senior Director) Romina (Senior Marketing Manager for NICK Latin America) and the ever so awesome Erik Steinhold (Senior Creative Manager) such a cool guy.

Super Darlene!

Super Romina!

Kickass Erik with a kickass t-shirt!

It was this same group of people that put together an AMAZING presentation at TELEVISA including goodie bags for the audience, a delicious breakfast and even a walkabout of EL TIGRE! So cute!

Jorge and I with EL TIGRE! Yay!

Jorge and I left feeling so very appreciated and we were just totally on cloud nine. We wished all of the people that made EL TIGRE possible could have been there to enjoy the moment just as we did because they deserved it as much as we did.

Im back!

I'm back from Mexico. Unfortunately, Jorge has the camera and he's still there so I promise the next entry will be about that.

In the meantime, here are two pieces I did for Grey Delisle. She's a wonder that Grey. Not only is she a phenomenal voice actress (she did the voice for Frida on EL TIGRE along with a ton of other ones) she's also an incredible singer and she always looks amazing!

Anyway, we had a cowboy themed show at the NICK gallery and she bought "COWGIRL". She comissioned me for another piece for her friend who happens to like mermaids.

Grey (isn't she lovely?)
