Softies for the children of Christchurch


Following the earthquake in New Zealand, Leonie from Kiwi At Heart has come up with a great initiative to get creative people involved. The idea is to make a special handmade soft-toy for a child who's been affected by the earthquake. For more information click here or on the image above.

One of my little monsters is already on its way to New Zealand. I hope it'll help putting a smile on a child's face.

SEE YOU JIMMY!


Well, it's time to bid farewell to Scotland... or perhaps not. I liked it so much here that I decided to stay and keep company to my friend Enrico. And in order to blend in with the locals I decided to buy myself this lovely hat.

Wi a hat like this, ye canna miss!!!

CLOUDY SKY


Clouds always look soooo dramatic in Scotland. The sun is shining but clouds are lurking in George Street.

THE LONE PIPER


I found one! A real Scotsman with kilt and bagpipe!


Or perhaps the real Scotsman is inside the blue box...

A DIFFICULT CHOICE



... couldn't decide between Edinburgh Castle Rock and Tasttee Maid Ices...

MacZANY


What do you think? Should I go for this kilt or should I create my own MacZany tartan?


And then a bit of culture at the National Gallery.

DR JEKYLL AND MR HYDE...


Here I am at Deacon Brodie's Tavern, the place to go for the best haggis in town (so they claim). If you wish to try haggis and don't know what it is, I strongly recommend that you avoid reading the explanation before you actually eat it...

The tavern is named after Deacon Brodie, a Scottish cabinet-maker who had a double life: during the day he was a respectable tradesman, but at night he became a burglar and thief. He inspired R. L. Stevenson's famous book "The strange case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde".

"LA BOCA" CRAFT FAIR


It's been a busy weekend. Unfortunately the weather has been very unkind to us, especially on Saturday. Sunday was much better, the sun was shining and Lavapiés came to life.

It was nice meeting new people, being amongst fellow-creators and seeing what they're up to. I especially liked the screen printed second-hand clothes by Argentinian designer Natalia - nA and the original jewellery of Madrid designer Laura - lala be you - and Venezuelan artist Gabriela - mora mora design.

Many thanks to all the people who visited me and bought my monsters. Here's Annabella with her new friend:


See you all soon!

NEW T-SHIRT

Lately I decided to take a screenprinting course to refresh my memory on this technique and get back into the swing of creating. The course took place at Hola Por Qué studio and I really enjoyed it.

This is the first T-shirt that I produced. More to come.

ÍÑIGO AND HIS MONSTER

... it was love at first sight.

Íñigo designed the monster (on a paper napkin) and I made it especially for him. I believed he liked his wee monster as he didn't let go of him for the entire evening. He named him Floppy.

So here they are, the two cheeky monsters posing for the camera: Íñigo and Floppy.
