Folks, I haven't had any time at all during the past months, but here I am to tell you that thanks to the group Ilustradores Argentinos I will be part of a group of 100 illustrators to exhibit our works at 12th edition of TRIMARCHI, the International Meeting of Graphic Design, which is going to take place at the Estadio Polideportivo of Mar Del Plata, during October 4, 5 and 6. Each illustrator will be represented by one of their works and in my case, the illustration selected to the exhibit is The Golden Boys.

Here's the listing of all illustrators and the promo video.

Character created for a project called El Mundo de Mo (Mo's World).

Here you have the final version (above) which was supposed to have a realistic rendering while at the same time stylized although keeping some proportions to match up the animal's. In the earlier versions (see below) I wanted to use a more caricaturesque approach of the Scarlet Macaw.
