New notebook

So, today Miguel finished making a notebook for me, after some days me bugging him :D

There the materials, but at the end we chose not to use the white paper because I thought was too fragil to use it as cover.

Because it were two pieces of brown paper for the cover he chose to use the piece of red leather, which I think makes it tool stylish.

Now to see the size of the notebook and cover. A little too big but was good and he cut what wouldn't be used.

The blue paper for holing the notebook to the cover and give it a nice look inside. The paper is the kind we make for the notebooks we sell.

Cut in two and folded.

Some glue.

And cut to make it look nice.

More glue on the other side...

And, the paper.

Now putting a piece of fabric. This is very important so it will keep the sheets in one place (those were previously sewed).

Fixing the fabric with the help of a piece of wood.

All good so far.

It's time to place the cover.

Folding it.

Making sure it will fit.

Lots of glue, or enough ;)

Folding the piece that is loose.

And with a piece of cloth pressing so it will be good and glued the parts.

Last touches: cutting the edges.

Finally, this is how it looks. I used my little monkey friend to put the chinese symbol. Is something my dad brought me from China and it's supposed to say "Yoda". Still I'm not sure if I placed it upside down or what :/

I'll be using this notebook for sketches. There are some specific projects that I really need to make some drawings before making them as final pieces. Is something I don't usually do, but I think they're worth it, so keep in tune and I'll show them some time soon ;)

Paseo nocturno

Finally, after weeks of hard work, I finished the portrait of Gustavo Aimar

I'm very pleased with the final image and, even if it is a big format (for me, at least), I had much fun working on it, listening to some music and my favourite radioshow named "exalofrío" which is about people calling to tell their experiences with ghosts and real horror stories. Perhaps one day I'll call to tell one of my own ;D

I'm now working on a serie of drawings that will be published with poems. I received an invitation to collaborate working for this project with a nice guy named Anthony Lucero.

I really don't know if I'll show them when they're finished, maybe not, perhaps would be better to wait for the final product; still I'll be showing the progress of them.

This is the first one :)

On the radio

This next September my mum's radioshow for children will be 18 years old.

But this next month will be the last because she's been doing it for free, not because she wanted to but because they have always promised to make a contract and pay, which never happened.


She asked me to take some photos yesterday and I did it gladly :)

This is our wonderful view. Years before there wasn't a building and there was this beautiful view of the whole city.

My mum showing all her teeth :D

"Which song would be next ?"

I still don't get used to the earphones :/
