How are you doing?
I wasn’t sure if I should post something or not. Sometimes I want to use this blog in a casual way, other times I want it to be more professional but professional posts take a long time to write. That’s why, I decided to let myself not to post during this month — Thank you Paola 😌 — and noticed a couple of things:
- I loved respecting my timing for writing.
- To do things that make me feel proud or happy takes time.
- When I am not posting I’m learning or living
- Taking vacations feels good
- I can’t wait to share the new things I am learning about drawing.
This morning I found this video that describe the inspiration for different outfits that some characters wear in the anime Sailor Moon. This video was so well made that I wanted to share it with you:

That’s how my morning almost started.
I was looking into the Elements of Art – you know me 🧐 lol – which I didn’t know existed, then finding about Elements of Design and finally wondering then what are Art Fundamentals, What’s the difference🤔…then BOOM the thought: Why Doraemon is so famous? hahaha Do you know about Doraemon? maybe not. I love Japanese culture so I usually see this pretty blue cat around and I don’t know why he is so famous.

Wow, I have been away for a month, It’s hard to believe but it was necessary, one because I got sick for almost that whole month and two because I was deeply doubting my interest for drawing which has happened to me a couple of times. I really needed to rest and have a space of not drawing.

Hi from the airport 👋. This week we have been planning for our almost one month trip to the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 so I didn’t planned any posts but I decided to say hi while waiting.

For a long time I have wanted to share my stories but I didn’t know how.
Last week, I tried with a stories widget in the sidebar of this blog and another stories widget on a page but it wasn’t as effective as I wanted, I was looking for something more organic and easy to share so after lots of thinking I decided to make my instagram account public to share my day to day behind the scenes (well Monday through Friday). Oops, then every business day to day behind the scenes 😋.

Have a relaxing weekend! (an advice that I’ll take myself).
In my last post I talked about my path to becoming an illustrator and how learning art fundamentals was something that I needed to implement to improve my drawing skills; nonetheless, the question is: Where to start? There are so many facets to art fundamentals that it can get very confusing.

In middle school I used to spend my evenings drawing images of Sailor Moon, it made me feel so relaxed and happy that I just wanted to do it forever. When I went to high school I met this girl that was very good at drawing. One day she lent me one of her sketches which I immediately tried to replicate and I couldn’t. Her drawing was right there in front of me yet as much as I tried to follow the lines and angles I just couldn’t, I never did. This was when I ruled out drawing as a profession. Since if we were still in high school and she was already so talented obviously I wasn’t going to be able to draw to her level, she was talented and I wasn’t.
