As Travars (BTS)

Hello book lovers! ❤

Today I bring you a design inspired by “A Darker Shade of Magic” by V.E. Schwab! I confess I haven’t read this book yet (but it’s already of my shelf waiting for me!), but the fandom around it it’s so huge that I wanted to create something for you guys!

I’ve done ADSOM custom artworks in the past and I’ve really enjoyed that, so this time I used the famous quote “As Travars” to do a beautiful lettering design with some elements around it.

In my sketchbook I idealized some epic calligraphy for this artwork, I thought it goes well rather than the cursive style I normally do. After having the lettering done, I used my iPad Pro with the app procreate to finalize the quote. Also digitally, I drew some elements, like flowers, Red London map and so on.

“As Travars” design is now available on my Etsy, Society6 and Redbubble stores (Click here). Here are some examples of products that you can find to purchase:

Writing is the only thing (BTS)

Hello book lovers! ❤

I have a brand new lettering design to show you today yay! Since many of you like my designs related to writers, I decided to do one more. This time I choose the quote:

“Writing is the only thing that when I do it, I don’t feel I should be doing something else.”

― Gloria Steinem

Personally I don’t like to write very much, it’s not my best skill! 😂 But I thought many of you could find this quote relatable, so I did this design with summery colors, fresh plants, a ink pot and a writing pen.

Down bellow you can see some pics of the process of this design (on the video there is a typo yes, but it’s fixed now!)

Hope is a pocket of possibility (BTS)

Hello book lovers! ❤

Today I bring you a new design based on a quote from Shatter Me series by Tahereh Mafi, I confess I have a mixed feelings with these books, I liked them and at the same time I don’t, it’s like a love/hate relationship you know 😂 But my loving side wanted to do this design (maybe because I really need Restore Me right now!)

“Hope is a pocket of possibility. I’m holding it in my hand” was the quote I choose for this project, I really like it, it’s powerful right? 😍

I did a sketch on how I wanted the quote to be and then I finalized it on Procreate, like I normally do. Around the lettering I added some elements that remind me of the cover of Shatter Me. Some birds, a pale sky and some branches with flowers were my choice for this design. For the colors, of course I had to use a pastel palette to give this artwork life!

Mermay 2018 (BTS)

Hello book lovers!<3 For those who don’t know what Mermay is, it’s a challenge where the artist draws a mermaid every day during May. It is a great exercise to practice your drawing skills but I generally I can’t keep up with any monthly challenges 😂

To be honest I wasn’t planning doing any mermaid at all this month but after seeing so many good artworks out there I was little inspired to do at least one mermaid! One mermaid became two, and when I noticed I had 5 mermaids in my hands! I’m very pleased that I’ve done so many but unfortunately I have to focus on other projects and my mermay is finished for me!👍

So my collection hasn’t a specific theme, I just did 5 mermaids with 5 different colors in the same style 😊  I stared drawing my girls on my sketchbook like I normally do and then I finished them on Procreate using my iPad Pro. Although I did them digitally I used a watercolor brush to make them look like to most close to tradicional, and I liked the final result and I hope you too!🤗

My mermay mermaids are available as laminated bookmarks on my Etsy store (click here) so go check it out if you want one (or more) for yourself!

Find a place (BTS)

Hello book lovers! ❤

I have a new artwork to share with you! Yes finally a brand new lettering design! “Find a place with books and kindness” is a design I’ve wanting to do for a while now, I imagined this quote one day and I wanted to make something special with it.

Everyone needs kindness in their lives, it’s one of the best things people can give to each other so I wanted to portrait that in this design along with books (obviously). Because what a better place than have these two things right?

I started sketching some ideas on my sketchbooks for this design with a mechanical pencil (1), when I was happy with the result I used a Pentel Fude Touch Sign Pen to trace the words I wanted (2). After that step I took a picture of it and on my iPad pro, with the app Procreate, I designed the quote over that (3).

After everything is done I drew some flowers on my iPad as well to use later on the finished design. To finalize it on Adobe Photoshop I added the flowers and give some color on the quote just like I wanted!

Audrey & Thomas (BTS)

Hello book lovers! ❤

Last week I’ve finished reading “Hunting Prince Dracula”, the second book on “Stalking Jack the Ripper” series by Kerri Maniscalco, and I loved it! I don’t know yet which one I liked most yet but I’m sure that I’m more than ready to read the next one, I can’t wait!

In honor to the Audrey Rose Wadsworth and Thomas Cresswell, the main characters on the books, I decided to illustrate them in a cute chibi style! (They are so adorable together right?)

IMG_8539.jpg

Drawing in chibi style is a recent thing for me, I’ve always liked drawing semi-real portraits but unfortunately I’m not the best at it so this style is more easier for me and I think it transmits the “cute” style that I love!

The fun thing about drawing these characters are their clothes, I really liked drawing this “old vintage” style, more than modern clothes 😂

I drew these characters on my iPad pro with the app procreate and finish them in Adobe Photoshop CC.

If you like these characters, they are available to purchase on my Etsy store as magnetic bookmarks (Click here). (In the future I want to make stickers too 😉) Here are some pictures of the product:

Pile of pandas and books (BTS)

Hello book lovers! ❤

You probably know that I have a huge obsession for Disney Tsum Tsum’s (The vinyl ones). They are small collectible toys based on Disney characters that are designed to stack on top of each other!

So looking every day to my collection I had this fancy idea of creating a design inspired by it. And what better way to mix cute pandas and books?

Pandas are one of my favorite animals and I think a lot of people like them too, so I choose this animal along with some books to make this adorable illustration!

bts copy copy.jpg

When I completed this artwork I decided to added some bamboo trees on the background that I think it gives a more complete look!

“Pile of pandas and books” is available on many items (pillows, tote bags, phone cases…) on my Society6 and Redbubble stores (Click here) and soon there will be laminated bookmarks on my etsy store (for now there is only stickers)!

Here are some examples of products that you can find to purchase:

Patience and Silence (BTS)

Hello book lovers!🌸

The final installment of the “The Illuminae Files” – Obsidio was released last week and just can’t wait to put my hands on a copy!😍

I really like sci-fi young adult books so I knew immediately that I these books were calling for me. They are so unique (if you see the inside you know what I mean!) and since I love a creative book, these were definitely a plus!

So in honor to my love to these series I decided to pick up a quote that I loved from “Gemina” – “Patience and Silence had one beautiful daughter and her name was Vengeance”. How epic is that right?

I wanted this design had the colors of Gemina (blue tones) and at the same time that remind of a galaxy, since it’s set on space. I decided to use some “<ERROR>” words along with some watercolor textures to give a more complete look.

“Patience and Silence” design is available on my society6 and redbubble stores (click here). I’ll be transforming this design into bookmarks for my etsy store soon too.

Here are some examples of this design applied in different products:

Emma (BTS)

Hello book lovers! ❤

Cassandra Clare is one of my favorite authors of all time since I read “The Mortal Instruments series” when I was younger. Since then I’ve read her other books and loved every one of them! Now I’m currently reading “Lord of Shadows” from “The Dark Artifices” series and I realized I haven’t done anything related to it, so I decided to draw Emma and make a bookmark to use while I’m reading this book!

I wanted to draw Emma Carstairs because I really like her as a character, and since drawing guys isn’t my strong, I had to choose her 😛

I did a sketch of her in my sketchbook with a pencil and when I was done I finished the illustration on my iPad Pro with the app Procreate as usual.

bts copy.jpg

I confess I really like the result, drawing semi-realistic characters isn’t my strong but I like drawing once in a while! “Emma” bookmark is available to purchase in my Etsy store if you want one for yourself! (Click here)

Here are some photos of the product, you can find more details on the link above!
