I´ve been following Teesha Moore work for years and I find it amazing, her art is something I really love because it has things I really identify with myself. She is an expert in the “art journaling” world, using mix media. I would love to improve my techniques in this area. She knows how to express her feelings using colors, images and beautiful illustrations. If you want to read her blog click here and if you are interested in this kind of art she is always doing workshops and art fest. Enjoy!
Spanish: He seguido el trabajo de Teesha Moore desde hace años y lo encuentro íncreible no sólo por su creatividad y sus técnicas sino porque hay algo en su arte que me identifica. Ella es una experta en el mundo del conocido “art journaling” o en espeañol sería una especie de “arte de diarios personales”. Utiliza muchas técnicas donde mezcla la ilustración, la pintura, creando collages únicos. Esta movida de “art journaling” es muy fuerte en países como Estados Unidos y busca realizar diarios personales con hojas únicas, expresando la creatividad y plasmando el mundo interno de cada persona en una hoja de papel. A mi me parece fascinante y aunque no los hago todos los días me gusta cada tanto pintar, pegar y rayar un poco. Si quieren seguir más de cerca su trabajo, les dejo el link de su blog y si están interesados en este tipo de arte les dejo los links para sus workshops y art fests. Ella da clases on-line en inglés.
Carolina or just Nina:)

I am really in love with Bianca Green´s work! She is a very talented brazilian artist with an amazing taste for beautiful colors and crazy compositions. She use lots of different patterns that make her drawings more alive. And she has also lived in my country (happy coincidence) :). If you are looking for digital collage and bright colors she is the girl. Enjoy!

I found Jessie Kanelos because of her blog The francofly. She is an american illustrator living in Paris and most of her drawings are about food (that´s why I love her drawings!!). She has a simple but lovely style I want to share with you. Enjoy!

Even she is better know as a fashion blogger, Garance Doré started her career as an illustrator in her natal France. She has a very particular drawing style that is so feminine and chic that the first time I saw it, I was hooked. She mixes very well thick and fine lines that she combines with perfect composition and lots of details . So here is my recognition to the “Garance artist” I admire so much. If you want to read her history from the illustrator Garance to the fashion blogger Garance click here(recommended!!) Or you can just visit her blog (which I do daily) and be amaze with her funny and real approach of life. I think she wouldn´t be catalog as a fashion blogger, is more as a real woman´s view of fashion. Enjoy!
Have a great end of the week.

I am really huge fan of street art, you can find beautiful messages and amazing drawings in the street. These kind of artists express themselves in the public eye, in front of everyone. The biggest contemporary street artist is Banksy. He had create a unique aesthetic very recognisable around the world. He mix perfect drawings with deep social messages that can be seen in the biggest cities around the world. Even if he had been controversional about his work, he says things that some people think but are too afraid to say it at loud. The value of his art is that today is here and tomorrow maybe it will not, it´s ephemeral.
Even if you like it or not, I recommend you his documental “Exit through the gift shop” an incredible history about the street art and a raising new “artist” “Mr. Brainwash“. I think comments about this documental are for another post, because it´s brillant! (Banksy creates a “piece of art”) Trust me!!
Phoebe Wahl is a young artist with a a very clear aesthetic and all her creations remind me of my chilhood. Her art is beautiful and speak directly to my heart. For me she seems to draw like classic story tales, imagine Little Red Riding Hood draw by her. She is amazing, hope you like it!

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.
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!
By the way if you are interest in Lora, you can check her youtube channel which has lovely short videos with her painting.

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.
