Despite I don't like to hear myself talking, and it gets worst when the interview is in English, you can't find the words, and nerves get you. Here it is one of the interviews I had during the last Bronx Heroes Comic Con 5. This is the link to Sugar Cayne website http://www.sugarcayne.com/2013/05/laura-alvarez-bronx-heroes-comic-con/
Last week illustration Friday had "farewell" as the chosen word for the week.
My friend Leila from South Africa was visiting NY and staying with me for a few days. She left on Thursday to Canada and she wanted to leave in a hot air balloon. So I draw it!
This week's illustration Friday word is train, and here you have my take on it.
Skating on a flying 6 train.
Since March I've been working on the SPARC residency (Seniors Partnering with Artists Citywide) that it is a community arts engagement program that places artists-in-residence at senior centers across the five boroughs of New York City.
I've been working in the Bronx, at Neighborhood SHOPP Leon Senior Center, where I taught them how to use ink, color pencils and paper to liberate their minds and exercise their imagination. (Many of them thought they didn't have any, but then realized they do). And they taught me many things too. We laughed, talked, enjoyed stories. We got to know each other and I’m going to miss them terribly now that the residency has ended.
Today we had the final exhibition and the book presentation. We worked in some stories based in their works of art.
Amazing experience and amazing people.
This week my Illustration Friday's contribution is this. Love to have fun drawing!!! What do you do for fun?
Hi there, a few months ago I started this project with Tony Colón (SST3) and now it's as real, as real as a magical unicorn can get in Laura's world. So, here you have, a brand new website, and a brand new Etsy page, where you can buy our creations.
This is just the beginning of the spring/summer collection, with 5 more designs to be released very soon. So make sure you get the designs you like before it's too late!!!
Talent is the word for this week Illustration Friday's drawing. I have the talent to draw on the train and that's how I did this!!
Happy Friday everyone!
