“Synesthesia”, Oct 2015. Watercolour, pencil and digital.
I am more than happy, this is my first publication as an illustrator. I made this synesthetic man for a scientific article in Principia. Principia is a fantastic scientific journal that combines scientific journalism, illustration in a good design. Here, how my drawing looks in the article: Synesthesia.
“When she woke up, the new book up was still there”
A collaboration with Letras Corsarias Bookshop
The Bookshop Day will be held on next 13th of November in Spain. Letras Corsarias is planning a few activities for that day. I made this poster for the micro-stories contest this bookshop is arranging in Salamanca (Spain).

“Honey Ryder”, 2015. (Watercolour & Colour pencil)
Ursula Andress (1936) is known as a shell-diver Honey Ryder in Dr. No, first James Bond film. In her first scene in the movie, she rose out from the sea in a white bikini and a shell in her hand, like a modern Venus. This scene became iconic in the history of cinema.
“This bikini made me into a success. As a result of starring in Dr. No as the first Bond girl, I was given the freedom to take my pick of future roles and to become financially independent.” Ursula Andress.
“Gorilla gorilla” Sept, 2015
“Gorillas are the largest of the great apes. A mature male may be six feet tall and weigh 400 pounds or more; his enormous arms can span eight feet. The mountain gorilla’s range is limited to a small area of lush wet forests in central Africa. There only a few thousand remain, leading a precarious existence. Part of the territory they occupy has been set aside as parkland, and, theoretically, gorillas are strictly protected. But in fact they are being pushed into ever-smaller ranges, chiefly by poachers and Batutsi herdsmen. Unless a better-planned and more-determined effort is made to save the mountain gorilla, it is doomed to extinction within the next two or three decades.” By Dian Fossey. Originally published in the January 1970 issue of National Geographic. (http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/2008/07/archive/fossey-gorillas-1970/dian-fossey-text/1)
Here it is my new logo. It will be walking by my side from now on.
When I started to think about my logo, I was lost. It isn´t easy to find something that shows who you are. My first thought was Science. How cool.
But not, Science wasn´t enough. After that I´ve realized I´m a girl full of curiosity, but just a girl. And, at the end, the only thing that makes me comfortable, it is me (it is a hard job).
