Ronald McDonald Houses

This week I created these three illustrations for the Ronald McDonald House in Barcelona, as part of the Work for FREE campaign going on this month at Anna Goodson Illustration Agency. The Ronald McDonald House charity program is non-profit organization that provides a “home-away-from-home” for families who have their kids hospitalized in a different city, so so they can stay close by their child at no cost. They do an amazing job helping children with cancer and other diseases, and it was an absolute pleasure working on these illustrations and being able to help in my own, little way. Thank you, Gisela!

Eat your veggies

Another gouache and pattern experiment, this time with all kind of vegetables. The aubergine/eggplant and the radishes are my favorites.

Flora and cookies

Yesterday was a very productive day over here. I finished this illustration full of little flowers and I baked these cookies. I followed this great recipe by Luisa Weiss and not only they're very easy to whip up, they are delicious too! The house still smells like warm chocolate :D

Have a great weekend everyone!!

Here's my first semi successful gouache painting, just some random forest things I painted from my head. I've found gouache to be a very fun medium, it's great to be able to make such textures and shadows, very different from my usual watercolor paintings. I decided to make it into a repeat pattern, wouldn't it look nice printed on fabric? I'd like some pillows with it :D

Unintentional abstract paintings

This is what happens after a nice session of gouache painting. I love looking at these paper towels closely, they look like little abstract paintings. Also, I have new sweater plans, a fair isle jumper with autumn like colors. And this drawing board is coming my way, I'm sure my back will appreciate it, because after long painting sessions I always get a sore neck.

Yesterday I spent the afternoon practicing with lights and shadows over a quick drawing from my sketchbook. It's so much fun to see the drawing come to life, I love doing these tiny pieces! In other news, the hat from the previous post is finished. Isn't the crown design beautiful?

Recent knits

I've been wearing my new green sweater all the time since I finished it last week. It's made with a super soft angora merino mix, and I designed the sweater to fit my tastes exactly (the great side of working your own patterns). It's knit in one piece, without any seaming, and the edges are finished with a tubular cast off that looks very neat. Last photo is my current project, a snowflake hat designed by Kate Davies, knit in shetland yarn.

Happy weekend everyone!
