“This piece is one of a series with fishes I made last year when I first arrived to NY. As Haiti is an island I thought sending one of this images working with water and sea life would be attractive to possible buyers. As an artist I have not many resources, and giving out my work is the best way I can find to help right now.”
Art Loves Haiti is a way for artists and people who love art to contribute to the aid efforts in Haiti. It is a collective auction of artwork, that contributes directly to the children and families affected by the earthquake Haiti on 12 January 2010.
Proceeds from this auction will go to Save the Children Haiti Emergency Appeal. The earthquake in Haiti on 12 January 2010 affected 1.8 million people living in Haiti. The death toll has been estimated to be over 100,000. Save The Children has over 200 staff on the ground in Haiti, with the priority of saving childrens lives by distributing emergency aid, including food and medical supplies and field hospitals to provide children and families with life-saving assistance. They are setting up spaces where children are protected from abuse, exploitation, and family separation and are able to access safe and quality education.
Art Loves Haiti was conceived on January 14, 2010, when artist Sarah Larnach and musician Pip Brown auctioned a rare piece of Ladyhawke artwork to contribute to the aid effort in Haiti. The auction received an overwhelming response from compassionate individuals wanting to help. Art Loves Haiti aims to relieve the suffering, and help rebuild the lives of children and their families affected by the tragedy. Visit the facebook page for information.

This drawing is a mixed up Spanish refrain.
Lemondays asked this week to make our own refrain, and I made mine from a sentence an old boss of me used to say.
It would be something like "Better bird in hand ..."

This is a project that came to me last week about designing a mural for a cafe in Valencia, Spain. The wall is 7,5meters long and 3 meters high.
Everything in the cafe is gray, white and dark red, so we needed some color to cheer it up, and some organic lines to break the stiffness of the place.
I also designed the signs for the restrooms, the one with the kids is for the main door, and once inside the restrooms, you have pink for girls and blue for boys. I know it's a bit topic but the patterns in each sign aren't.
Hopefully we'll have the results in a few days!
For this week illustration friday website, this is my contribution.

Lemondays is opening a new series of topics. The 60's, 70's, 80's and so on, celebrating the change of decade. Time to remember what happened in our countries, in our lives, in our culture.
I'm going to dedicate this series to the music Spanish people used to listen to those days.
As most of you know, Spain was suffering a dictatorial regimen which didn't allow people to really know what was going on outside Spain. We had our music, our films, our books, everything strictly translated into Spanish.
I'm working in the new images for my zazzle shop so you can now get the cards and presents for your Valentine.
Here you have the first ones, but there's more to come!!
