sonidos de otono

This is a short film that i helped do some designs soon after i graduated animation school,
I only designed the old man and the little bird..
The animation is a fellow classmate Raul Carbonell and his brother Rene Carbonell.
They entered it into a Film Festival in Thailand called Thai Anima 2003 and they ran it
in a big theater! Unfortunatly we did not win but it was fun!

The octonauts and the sea of shade is out!

I have always loved the art of local artist Meomi
ever since i had her key chain of this kitty for a year
until if broke off..i really like her sense of cuteness
in her art and her colouring is astounding!!

Meomi is actually comprised of Vicki Wong and
Michael Murphy. Recently they have released
some cute books, one called "The Octonauts and the sea of shade".

I really loved the style and colouring of the cover and the story tells of an
adventure of the octonauts which are cute animals must find out why everyone's
shadow has disappeared. I particularly think the cat with the eye patch is my favorite
octonaut! So check it out! Her store is also full of really cute stuff as well.

Zakka ( japanese term for home style)

I love the japanese take on the cottage home style called zakka, so i am trying to
make something in this style, i decided to make some prints on my gocco, and i will
be selling these when i am done.

One thing i am not sure is to sell it as a air freshener or a pincushion..what would you buy this as? I might even combine the two into a pincushion/air freshener...

Also i made scones that turned out really yummy so i took a pic:D
