This is how the ebook cover looks finished As winter solstice has been celebrated in the southern hemisphere by a lot of Andean cultures keeping their ancient traditions alive through millennia. I think this book celebrates all their knowledge that have been neglected and deserves to be well spread to the many times ignorant modern humans fed with technology but starving in their connection with nature.
Being in the Andes at this time of the year feels like being in sort of several movies at the same time. The lighting is very scenary and you get beautiful atmospheres. I love mist and clouds as it gives a lot of character to photographs. Sometimes is hard to get a nice shot of the forest because everything looks flat, but with clouds you can capture every tree in a different grey scale depending on the distance you are shooting from.
The forest is all humid and it blossoms of mushrooms of different colours, shapes, textures and smells, it is hard to keep your hands on your pockets because you want to pick all of them. You can also see the tracks of wild animals that move down from higher altitudes for spending the winter looking for food, fortunately there aren’t bears and wolves on these latitudes, so you have the peace of mind that you will come back to civilization without missing any part.

It has been a while! Haven’t got nice internet speed here on Patagonia so it was harder to make any blog post.
The following are some of the works I have done for a commission into the children’s book world. As always it is a pleasure to me to work for children books. As a creative person that I am, creativity gets challenged and when it happens I feel happy with the results.
Here some pictures of my first winter wedding. I have to confess I was a bit scared because of the weather but it turned out into a beautiful sunny day and the light was stunning, all the fresh cold air was turned away by the warmth of the sunset light. The couple was very happy and it was very nice working with them. Hope you enjoy the pictures
I made this Illustration using the concept of “prehistoric” which was given by Illustration Friday on their weekly submissions, but because of the stormy weather we have had up here in Ireland, my internet was gone so I didn’t make it to submit it on time. Anyways the work is done so I’m sharing it to the world
