I just came from the comic store, with my boys and we came back with two spiderman anti-stress. They're fan of Spiderman, but they choosed Spidey over Iron man because it looks nicer. You can choose between Spiderman,Iron man, Hulk and Wolverine but the truth, and I quote my son "except Spiderman, the rest are quite ugly". Anyway, let's see how long they're going to last... I may even use it myself sometimes.

The assignement of this week are bugs and creepy-crawly things. And this picture of this little snail is just perfect as it's been raining for days, and it remind me that french little kiddy song "il pleut il mouille, c'est la faute à la grenouille, l'eau tombe à flot, c'est la faute à l'escargot" which would mean something like" it's raining, it's wet, it's the frog fault, heavy rainfall it's the snail's fault!"

Cogí esta foto hace unos meses en el jardín Botanico de Gijón. No conseguí a la primera lo que quiería, porque esos champiñones estaban un poco lejos, pero al final allí estan. Me recuerdan a unas casitas de hadas.
I took this picture fews month ago in the Jardín Botanico of Gijón, it took me ages to take the right shoot, because it's was very far, and I did it the default zoom of the camera, which it's rather pretty good (well, for me I'm just an amateur, don't know to much about it). Those mushrooms remind me of little fairies houses I used to draw.

sketches: pencil + digital color photoshop)
Hacía mucho que no usaba el photoshop para colorear mis bocetos en el moleskin...y se nota debería hacerlo más a menudo
Lately, when I do the color it's with traditional medium, I thought it would be nice to it digitally - which come pretty handy, as it's been a while since I used photoshop.

Os presento a Muxin, uno de mis gatos. Mi gatos son tremendamente guapos pero incrediblemente peresozos... Normalmente, cuando se mira a esta foto, solo se nota sus ojos azul, y no se ve los detalles. Por eso, tomo muchas fotos -decir mucho es poco- para estudiar luego los detalles, es un ejercicio para fijarme en lo menos obvio...
This is Muxin, one of my two lazy but gorgeous cats. Have you notice his big blues eyes? Well, I guess that the one thing you notice, when you look at this picture. One of the reason, I take a lot of pictures, and I do mean a L-O-T, it's to study them to see the little details that I didn't notice, that's an exercise that I do regularly, it helps me when I have to draw....

I 've never been a fan of markers until recently. I always thought it was limited , that you couldn't do to much with, I know it's silly but for me markers always been a thing for been for pre-school.. Until I discover few month ago, the website of Mary Engelbreit, I was amazed to learn that she uses marker, at one point in her blog she talks about copics , so I decided that I will give a go. But in my town, there's no shops selling those copics, but I did buy some promarkers . And boy, was I wrong, there are endless ways to use markers, I just love it. Last month for my birthday , my hubby offered me some copics that he bought in the States, I was very happy but I was in middle of big project and there were absolutely no time to grab a marker and doodle. It's only almost 1 month later that I've been able to use it, I was getting desperate! But I must admit there were worth the wait, using them it's delightful, between the copic and the copic sketch, I prefer the last one, it seems to be smoother. And Ilike the fact that I can mix up the copics with the promarkers, even the blender pen.
