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:Continue reading “Sailor Moon outfits inspiration 🌙”
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.Continue reading “My path from engineer 👷♀️ to illustrator 👩🎨”
A couple of years ago I found this article about how to turn your Illustrations skills into a full-time job and from time to time I revisit it to see what I need to do in this path to learning how to draw and live from my illustrations.
The part that I love the most about this article is that was made by Patreon and it’s an interview with one of my favorite Illustrators and biggest inspirations Frannerd.
Here is the article:
My favorite points are 1,2, 4 and 7. Which ones are your favorite?

In this video I share the unboxing and a little check in Frannerd‘s Zine called “The Brandford Cereal Girls” you can find it in Frannerd’s Shop.
Do you have any of her Zines? I really love her drawing style.
This is a list of Illustrators that caught my eye in the awesome book “Making Comics” by Scott McCloud which I read recently and is full of important information if you are a self-taught illustrator or comic artist so I definitely recommend you to check it out.
Hi blog bunnies!
In this video I share the unboxing of a Mossery Pastel Sky Sketchbook that I got back in 2018, I don’t own it anymore because the paper it has wasn’t what I was looking for to use with my watercolors but the cover and the brand is so beautiful that I wanted to share.
Back in 2018 Mossery created a Zine which I showed in the video, if you want to know more about the Zine just go to this link: https://www.mossery.co/blogs/news/to-inspire-and-encourage-inktober-2018-zine and if you want to know more about the artists that collaborated in this project you can go here: https://www.mossery.co/pages/mossery-inktober-2018
Do you own a Mossery sketchbook? What do you think about the paper?
