People I admire… Lisa Congdon

Lisa Congdon is a californian ilustrator and artist that start her career at the age of 31. She used to work as a teacher for non-profit organizations and painting was just a hobbie in that time. After years of hard work, self taughting and practice she is now a full time artist. I love her story which is truly inspirational for everyone wanting to be an artist or¬†anyone wanting to make a hobbie a real job. She remember me to stay focus, love what you do and do it every day (even if you have a regular job) because time, dedication and pasion are rewarded somehow. So if you are wanting to do “the job of your dreams” just be patient and let the time do his thing.

People I admire… Lora Zombie

I am really obsess with this artist, her name Lora Zombie a russian lady that is a genious in making amazing paintings using watercolors, acrylics, collage and mixing this techniques together. She is really talented and so inspiring. I am passing through a watercolor love period in my life and she is my Da Vinci in this area. Her work is sublime and at the same time intriguing. She admits to do “grunge art” but in my opinion (and in many for sure) she is an amazing talented artist. I dream for a private watercolor class with this lady!

Be yourself even if…

Last weekend I watched the movie “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” and one line really hit me.. it was something like “Welcome to the island of Misfit Toys…” So today I share with you a new drawing of the “Be yourself series” inspired in that phrase.¬†If you want to check the previous drawings of the series “Be yourself”, just click in the drawings tag.

People I admire… Malin Bergstr√∂m

I found this amazing artist and ilustrator this time offline. I am a huge fanatic of Nylon Magazine and one of their ilustrators is Malin Bergström. She is swedish and I have to admit I have a special love for her country, I have family in Sweeden and I went once in a beautiful summer and felt in love of this scandinavian country. She works mixing collage with ilustration in a unique way and her drawings are absolutely amazing. I love the colors she uses, always some black and white with hints of color. Here is her work, hope you enjoy it.
