New year, new posts.

 

2018 has started with many possibilities.  That’s why I’ve decided to start posting every Sunday, a little recap with all my week’s work in illustration and other areas.

This week I’ve worked on different comics, illustrations, some pieces of fan art, and a few character designs among other things.

Dear reader, viewer, human being who’s reading this:

If you don’t know the unfortunate,which here means entertaining and witty, tale of the Baudelaire orphans, it’s about time!

Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events  has been part of my life for a long time.  I read all the 13 books,  I saw the movie in a cinema in 2004 and last January,  I watched the first season of the new Netflix’s adaptation.

The first eight episodes of this show tell this story with a new and refreshing point of view.  Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events is a complete journey full of misadventures,  villains,  fires, books and clever inventions.  After all, not everything is happiness and peace when you have unfortunate  in the title.

The Netflix show includes all of that, and much more.  I think it’s a perfect adaptation of Daniel Handler’s books.  I began designing this series of 8 posters based on each chapter of the first season of Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events.  These fan posters have a minimal design and feature a key element from each chapter (like Lake Lachrymose or the peppermint sweets from The Wide Window Part 2), or  a key character (like Count Olaf).  Beside this you can find, in each poster, a series of eyes (the ubiquitous symbol that chases Violet, Klaus and Sunny Baudelaire through all their adventures).

As the show,  which divides every story in two different episodes.  The color tones of each poster change for each story:  Grey colors (A Bad Beginning),  green colors (The Reptile Room),  blue colors (The Wide Window) and brown colors for The Miserable Mill.

Here you can find the 8 posters I’ve created for each chapter of the first season of the Netflix show.

The good news are that the Netflix show will come back for two more seasons, the bad ones are that the Baudelaire Orphans’ next adventures will be very unfortunate, a word which here means very exciting adventures full of villains and three clever children.

 

Big Characters, Little Drawings – New Project

Big characters, little drawings

Since I was a child,  I’ve loved drawing.  During school and high school, all my notebooks were filled with many drawings.

Maybe I could follow that path. Learn more things about drawing and art,  study a bachelor’s degree in art or I could work as an illustrator, a sketch artist or an animator.  But I’ve never considered myself good enough, so I decided to tell stories in another way.

I chose to tell stories with videos and photographs, and sometimes with a few written tales.  I’ve always loved to tell stories, and in one way or another, I am a storyteller in my own way.

During the last month, my reality has shifted a lot.  I’m searching for a new job, and I haven’t got to go to any classes.  Maybe that’s why I started a new project called Big Characters, Little Drawings. 

Many stories have been part of my life.  These ones are filled with many characters whom I’ve learnt to appreciate even tough they’re not real.

This project is my own way to pay homage to these characters by making illustrations.  This is a good reason to start drawing again, even if the result isn’t perfect.

From now on, you can find all the illustrations I make for this project in this web,  and on other places such as my pages on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or Tumblr.

I hope you like this!
