#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!

DRAW-A-DOT

Yes. I've been gone for a good couple of months.
I'm still adjusting myself to this brand new graduated life. 

But I'm coming back with great news!

Now I have a fashion illustration featured on @drawadot's instagram!


Really, the happiness here is over the Moon! I've always had wanted to send an illustration to one of Marcus' open calls, but I was always busy with college/ work stuff...

Then, first time sent and BOOOM! Here it is:


There are so many incredible illustrators featured in this account...! It's insane to be part of the team now! 



This illustration was inspirated by Comme Des Garçons S/S2015! The last look!
And the postion is an Ina Bauer (from figure skating). Drama, anyone?


July is coming! Miu Miu's illustration too: tons of colors and fun!
