Juan Félix Sánchez - 1900-1997

Wikipedia: Juan Félix Sánchez (16 May 1900 - 18 April 1997) was Andean folk artist born in San Rafael de Mucuchíes, Mérida, Venezuela. Sánchez' talents included weaving and sculpture, and he was also the architect and builder of the Chapel of San Rafael de Mucuchíes dedicated to the Holy Virgin of Coromoto at El Tisure, as well as several other small chapels.

While President of the Communal Meeting of San Rafael in 1929 - 1933, he organised the installation of a turbine to provide electricity to the town.

In the 1980s, he was the subject of a short film designed to "acknowledge and uncover the land, the beauty and the people of Venezuela" which received several awards.

Beatriz Inglessis

Tonight I decided to do a kind of contest among my facebook’s friends. The winner was my friend Beatriz from Venezuela. I met her a long time ago while we were studying graphic design. Now she lives in Tokyo. She is an amazing award winner artist with several exhibitions and publications. Check out her website.
It was a little hard to capture the likeness sine she has only one photo on her facebook, hope she likes it...

Alfred Hitchcock

I finally finished this piece. I'm very happy with the result. I think that even if there is a lot of Hitchcocks based on the same photo reference this one has something that makes it unique... or maybe it's because I painted? :)

Once again values are the very very important. This was a very good value exercise

A blast from the past

I did these caricatures on 1993 (I was around 17) I remember it took me along time to finish them, no Photoshop at that time ;). They are my uncles and my dad (the one with glasses and mustache)... Only a mother can keep a drawing of a son for a long time.

Hitting back

Seiler's class

I have been very busy lately. I’ve been working a lot on my full time job. And any second I have “free” I have to work on the assignments for Jason Seiler’s course. Here are some of the final homeworks for the course. One side is my original work and the other one is Jason’s revision. BTW it has been REALLY GOOD!!!
