Mexican Talent

Being that the description of this blog is about the ramblings of a Mexican I thought I would get together a couple of samples of Mexican artists out there that are making a difference in today's design trends. this will be the first of many posts talking about this subject. I have 2 amazing artists prepared for you.

First we have the very talented Sabrina Guzman.
Sabrina is a fashion designer who is very into the costume design and character development through fashion. she is currently working on getting an online presence up with a blog for people who want to dress chic with their current wardrobe or very cheap alternatives to high priced designer pieces. Also she is competing with the top 50 from the world in an origami like design technique. check out some of her work below. follow her on facebook while she gets a more formal site up.

Second we have Mariana Galindo.
Mariana is a make up artist based in Mexico City whos work i recently came across. what struck me was the unconventional stuff she has as her personal projects. She is the founder of MG Makeup and has a great portfolio showing all the style ranges she can do with makeup. One of the things I like about her work is how she manages to draw attention to an otherwise under rated craft. following her and reading her comments about good and bad make up design makes for interesting considerations when you know almost nothing on a subject. Follow her at facebook or go directly to MG Makeup and see for yourself.

2013 1st Project

Well I am a bit late updating this on the blog but i did finish my website almost the entire way by the end of January. So I will call that a success on the first project. for this month although I see it is almost over my goal has been to re learn a lot of the basics of drawing and painting. I have made great headway and am enjoying sketching and oil painting. i am going to try and do some pastels and watercolor before the end of the month which i will post here. I have also enrolled in a beginners programming for games course online. noit sure how much ill learn from it but hey it cant hurt much. this course starts this week and spans through mid march so i will use that as a semi project for March.  Please go check out my new website. I still need to sit down and add descriptions to some of the images but that will come with some spare time. the link is below or hit my portfolio tab under my links category in this page :)

Here is a semi collage image i made form some of my work displayed on my site.
