PLANETA ILUSTRAÇÃO - I

**English version coming soon**

Um mês e meio depois - com direito a muitos prazos, muitas correrias e novidades - aqui estou eu de volta! =)

A ideia é falar sobre o Planeta Ilustração, o primeiro evento criado pela Universidade do Papel para tratar do assunto.

É muita coisa para falar, então eu pensei em dividir tudo em 3 posts: nesse primeiro vou falar das ilustrações que eu levei para a exposição e responder várias das perguntas que me foram feitas, e que algumas talvez tinham respostas muito complexas pra aquele momento; no segundo - sobre os trabalhos de outros ilustradores talentosíssimos que eu tive a oportunidade de conhecer e no terceiro sobre a Universidade do Papel. Tenho motivos para deixar esse assunto por último e não, não é por dar pouca importância, ou por ingratidão, muito pelo contrário - na verdade a Universidade muito possivelmente passará a ser um tema recorrente por aqui, se tudo der certo! ^_^

INSTAGRAM



  Today I'm gonna talk about some instagram changes in my account and the reasons I decided to do so! Also, I'm going over that list of saved items! Because I know I'm not the only one who keep saving things and forgeting to go back to them later on, hahaha!

#BLOWFISHDAYS - FIGURE SKATING ILLUSTRATIONS

Basically one month later I'm back. With thousands of things happening at the same time it's quite hard to keep an agenda.

Our Airbnb apartments are being quite requisited, which is good, but also means hard to predict days.


I'm also planning my collection of paper jewelry collection and taking many classes... so: big news coming soon! =)

To relax a bit of all the formalities from Fashion Illustration classes, I've been creating some illustrations for a couple of figure skaters and the feedback is being so nice!


04.12 was Kaitlyn Weaver's birthday! She's a beautiful and skilled ice dancer from Team Canada!

The inspiration came from Kaitlyn and Andrew's short program:

And she was so sweet in her answer! I got a combo: like + comment + stories' post!


 

When she featured me on her stories, and right after a post featuring no other than Andrew Poje, I nearly fainted. Like...really!




04.15 was the last day of Yuzuru's ice show Continues ~ With Wings ~ and also the b-day of Javier Fernández! He skated a bit of his Impossible Dream program and everyone sang happy birthday to him. My choice of outfit was obviously his costume for the gala program Super Javi, coreographed by the - also super - Kurt Browning.


"I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero 'til the end of the night
He's gotta be strong
And he's gotta be fast
And he's gotta be fresh from the fight
I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero 'til the morning light
He's gotta be sure
And it's gotta be soon
And he's gotta be larger than life"


In the end, Javi himself probably didn't even notice my post. Buuuuuut! A sweet sweet sweeeet heart from Belgium did!

Thank you so much for the love, Jorik Hendrickx!!




He has probably no idea, but since he skated to Il Divo's Aranjuez version, his base of fans here in Brazil did grow a lot! Something I'll let him know on his birthday post, also coming soon!




Last, but not least: Javier Raya! He's been through such difficult times! I'm so glad he's recovering his heart and emotions! Also, on this post there's also a short video with the illustration steps!


Javi, thank you so much for your efforts, your inspirational words and all the love!!


#HappyMonday, everyone!

FASHION ILLUSTRATION CLASSES - I

It's been two weeks since I started with the Fashion Illustration post graduation course. And tomorrow I'll also start the Jewellery Collection course.

So far we've been through human figure and some references researches... 

Trying to find a mid point between the realistic style and the manga style is not easy. And I can't say the professor loves manga. But yeah... I'm surviving and learning a lot, or so I want to believe, hahahaha.

"You can find great references at Vogue and Elle magazines." - Yup, it's quite obvious, isn't it? Maybe way too much obvious for my liking... So I decided to go a little outside the box and take some references I knew the other students would not take to the classroom =P

 Some scans from japanese Seventeen magazine.

Bridal editorial, from YES WEDDING magazine.

Camila Klein's jewellery collection.

Gekkan EXILE's editorial with Takanori Iwata

Again, Takanori Iwata, but this cool poses are from his first photobook.

And Yuzuru. Obviously. You saw it coming, didn't you?
Now, really, his movements are very elegant - that's why he's here again.


Not only Yuzu though. Kaitlyn Weaver, Yuna Kim, Carolina Kostner, Karen Chen, Kaetlyn Osmond and Maia Shibutani too. Because Figure Skating is elegant. Period. 



Later on, I'm going to make a post just about my production and its evolution, but for now, here you have an illustration of the canadian figure skater Gabrielle Daleman. It's the 3rd illustration since the classes have started:
Gabby herself gave my post a like, so you can imagine how over the Moon I became when I saw the notification!

So far so good it seems!

GARRET KANE @ apART PRIVATE GALLERY

   Yesterday I had a chance of visiting Garret Kane's exposition here in Sao Paulo, at apArt Private Gallery!



   apArt is a private space where, through a scheduled appointment, you’ll be able to appreciate, purchase or rent fine art and design as well as meet and engage in conversation with the artist or designer.  It’s also a place for book signing events and any other kind of cultural activities.

   Everything is organized on a privé basis for VIP individuals or small groups. Even though here in Brazil it's still not so common to have crowded art galleries - unless there's an event going on - one of the things I liked the most about apArt is the fact that visits are scheduled! It was a slightly intimidating thought at the begining but there was an adorable lady opening the apartment door when I arrived and offering water and coffee, and then a very welcoming apartment full of art in every detail! It was a nice scape moment during a busy friday...


Since the gallery is at a very familiar neighborhood for me, in a certain way it felt like visiting an auntie's place... hahaha.


   Garret Kane is an assemblage sculpture artist based in Brooklyn, NY. Below there are some of his words about art and technology:

   "All human invention is the application of our desires and ideas upon matter and energy - and I believe art is the purest form of this conceit - it's sole purpose being to push matter and energy to the most interesting places it can go.

   Well, that's the idea I like to operate from, and it’s what inspires much of what I do.

   Specifically the mediums, concepts and techniques I prefer all revolve around this association with base nature. They embody the idea that human beings were made by nature and through technology we attempt to recreate nature in our own image.

   Lastly, because nature inspires everything I do and because I love our planet, 10% of all my profits go to the IUCN (International Union for the Conservation of Nature)".

BLOWFISH DAYS: THE KITTEN



I just came to share a little bit about a crazy kitten I've met these days... Why? Because my life is full of "coincidences" when it comes to the neighborhood!

Have you ever felt like if someone or some unseen force kind of knows it too well?
