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! ^_^

#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)".

LANIAKEA


"Laniakea" - word from Hawaiian, it means Immeasurable Heaven. Also a supercluster of galaxies (our beloved Milky Way is also there as one of the 100 000 galaxies).  

Today we're going over Satoshi Tomizu's jewelry design in glass. He creates unbelivable lanikeas in 2cm x 2cm x 2cm spheres. 
His designs are so demanded that there's an individual lottery for every single piece he sells. Click below to see the gallery!

JAPANESE DISPLAYS - part I

It's been a while and I'm really sorry. Days are crazy here and keepin' up with a routine is not a easy task right now.

ANYWAYS. Let's go back to the 90's, because...

Here's an ispirational post about Japanese Displays and Visual Merchandising.

SCRAPBOOK ♥


  I guess can't precisely point the moment scrapbooking entered my life. And this is because the passion for different kind of papers and working with them was already with me, since basically kindergarten days. I've been always the Arts and Crafts teacher's assistant and so on... Cutting and gluing paper while working the creativity was always fun and, not surprisingly my choice when it was time to start college was towards Architecture and Design.

These days...

Almost one month after the last post - I had actually some good ideas of what I could post here, but needed a break of social networks environment. 

It was impossible to get that famous internet detox though, because I work from home and need to be online to communicate with my work team. 

Since there were many things happening at the same time in the offline world as well, that's why I went MIA. Sorry about all the unanswered messages! Specially on messenger and whatsapp - c'mon, guys, you know I HATE WHATSAPP.

But now we're back to business! It's impossible to stop during the second half of the year! 


And now I'm gonna talk about what I've been into.

Getting organized?

   "You know that creating a detailed chronogram is part of any project methodology, right?" - this was Kito, the good soul and professor who was coordinating my college's graduation project.

   "Yup. But I'm not gonna make it." - I trust him a lot, so I gave him my most honest answer.

   "If you don't have a good reason why, you'll be discounted points from your development part." -  Nowadays, basically 6 months after this page of my life was turned, I quite feel sorry for the professors who helped me up back there. 

   "The semester is really short, so I don't want to loose time in something that, REALLY, I'm not gonna use AT ALL... This chronogram will be like my schedule books from high school days... first days very complete and used, but after less than a month of classes I always forgot they'd ever existed..." - that's how I started explaining.   

   "Then, how do you plan to organize yourself?" - oh, poor, Kito.

   "I'm gona make the very detailed tasks' lists, yes, for research, development, conception, etc, but I won't detail how many hours I need or when I'm going to make it, because really, I will not follow time guides, so there's no reason to lie about it."

   Yes, I did many lists and had a good couple of pages glued in all the walls of my studio, so I had all those truths really shoved in my face. This way I could not slack off.

   Now, why chronograms don't work for me?

   Because every day is a new one pretty much different from the day which came before: new events, new challenges and new energies.

   Yes, energies and moods. The same way there are days when it feels like everyone decided to be hanging out and having a good time, or when it feels like the whole city decided to go to the same restaurant's food you were craving some food from, there are days when the streets are empty and it feels like all the souls want some reclusion and moments of piece.

   There are days when you want to draw something new and incredible, but the most impressive thing you get is an argument with a blank page and using half of a new eraser (nevermind, the eraser will disappear before you have the chance to completely use it). 

   There are days when you want to sleep, but just can't! So instead of staying in the bed, turning around and getting angry or worried because you can't sleep (which won't help you to sleep at all), it's better to accept it and do something with the energy and the mood you have at the moment.

   Not all the moments are suitable for everything. So it's useless to try to schedule when you'll feel good to do researchs, when it will be nice to draw, etc.

   For me, the best thing is just wake up and see how I'm feeling, and how the day woke up. It's much more fun to go with the energy flow and not fight it. (And you'll check all the tasks that need to be done the same way!)

   But yes, for many people, it's still a messy way of life.

   Ok. I'm a messy (crazy, artsy, strange, left handed) person. No news here, right?

   Even this blog started from my reason to get some rhythm and order for my creative process.
(While I don't finally build a decent website as well. Anyways)



   So, today I'm going through an important part of my creative process: r e g i s t e r i n g!

#TBT: COMPUTER ARTS

Keeping the #TBT mood, here are some scans from our brazilian version of Computer Arts magazine. 



Sadly it's over right now... So I'm considering to become a subscriber of the UK version.

Or maybe a subscription of Monocle magazine wouldn't be bad at all...
