These are the pieces I customized this year for Argonaut Resins. Mariposa and Dragonfly are already at the NYC Comic-Con and I will join on Sunday painting live some more resin toys.
I can't wait to be there again! It's such a great atmosphere, the people, the costumes, art everywhere... It is a pretty cool experience. If you are going to be there on Sunday, come visit us at booth 404 at The Block. You won't be disappointed :)
Today you can join me for the opening of the exhibition "Ad Astra" at Blick art materials store, 1 Bond Street, Soho, New York. It will start at 6 p.m. and it will go on until 8 p.m.
You all know my relationship with space and stars. Going to the roof at night with my father to set up the telescope and find different planets, nebulas and star clusters, was always an adventure.
Today I have a couple of [pieces I did as homage to Laika, the first animal sent to space, the first real cosmonaut. This Russian dog died in space, as well as many other animals sent after her before they started sending humans.

This summer I have been very busy, but I also had time to share time with friends and celebrate their happiness and successes. New babies on their way, wedding anniversaries, birthday parties. I like to give special gifts. I believe in creating memories, images that will last years and will bring you back to that moment.
Instead of flowers, give a painting, instead of baby clothes that they will wear once, give some love...
Stay cool and keep celebrating!
I am a...
Graphic Designer, Illustrator, Educator, Community Activist... ARTIST!
