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? 😍

IMG_9059.jpg

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!👍

mermaid copy.jpg

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?

bts copy copy copy.jpg

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!

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

Sarai (BTS)

Hello book lovers! ❤

“Strange the Dreamer” was one of my favorite reads of 2017. It was a fantastic fantasy novel that I enjoyed every page!

The characters are so interesting and singular, that I had to do one at least one! I choose one of main characters, Sarai, to illustrate. What fascinated me in this character was her blue skin and her connection to moths, two distinctive elements that I’ve never draw before!

For the creation of this artwork I took a picture of myself with the pose I wanted for Sarai (It was the first time I did this and I think I’ll use this method in the future!) Then I used that picture as reference and draw a sketch in Procreate, using my iPad pro.

Then I traced the lines I wanted and started painting with base colors. After that, I use some shading to highlight the illustration and give a more complete look.

To finish the artwork I decided to draw some flowers and moths around Sarai and then I gave some final touches in Adobe Photoshop and it’s done!

“Sarai” is available on my Society6 and Redbubble stores (Click here), on a bunch of different products, here are some examples you can find:

Otter Reads (BTS)

Hello book lovers! ❤

As you may know by now I really like animals! And drawing them too 😄 I started a collection last year called “Animal Reads”, I wanted to illustrate different animals with books!

“Otter Reads” is the 10th illustration in my collection! I love otters since I was a kid, I went several times (and I’m still going!) to the oceanarium, especially, to see this cute creature! They are adorable, I wanted to represent, in the best way, their friendly side!

My method is always the same for this collection: sketch in paper -> outline + paint in Procreate (Before I had an iPad Pro I did this step in Adobe Illustrator) -> give final touches in Adobe Photoshop!

If you are interested in have this otter, you can purchase it in different and varied items on my online stores!  Click here

Here are some examples that you can find:bts copy.jpg

Once upon a time (BTS)

Hello book lovers!

In February we celebrate Valentine’s Day, and in honor to that I did this design! Of course the love I’m talking about is about books 😉

We all had that one book that changed our life completely right? That first book that you picked up and never stopped reading after that. This design is inspired by that moment!

“Once upon a time I opened a book and fell in love” quote popped into my mind one day and I decided to give a beautiful lettering to it with a romantic look. As usual I used my sketchbook to draw the lettering I wanted, after that I passed to my iPad pro and designed the quote with more detail.bts.jpg

I finished the design in Photoshop CC with the help of my Wacom Intuos Pro Paper, I added some flowers and gave to the lettering a more stylish look.
