I’ve put together a Spotify list with some music I listen to while drawing astronauts. Mostly so-called avant-garde classical music, so you can expect eerie, psychotropic clusters of sound and things like that. Ligeti is there, and predictably everything is quite 2001-inspired. Here is the link:

Not in Kansas Anymore

I know this may look pedantic, but bear in mind that the rest of the time I may be listening to cheesy synth music.

Some process pics from my last piece. As usual, you can find more in my instagram stream.

Illustrations I did a while back for an article about disease caused by sustained exposure to noise, for Etiqueta Negra magazine. You know, it may be a low-frecuency buzzing from some ominous engine, but you could also get mad hearing a tap dripping onto the sink in the dead of the night.

Oh yes, there is some obvious Kirby tribute in the first one. Drawing nonsense machinery is fun.

Hibernaculum.

Ink + digital.

I did these twin pieces to illustrate a short tale by Tullio Avoledo in Wired Italy. It is a special number with a number of science-fiction stories, a sort of hommage to the Amazing Stories magazine.

The story is about a portrait of Saint Thomas Becket from the Renaissance which is found to hide and older, mysterious picture below. This second picture is only visible when looking at the canvas under a special light. It is confirmed that it dates from the XVI century, and it is the portrait of a WWII german soldier.

Thank god for time travel.

So it’s… World Cup time. And here’s an illustration I did a couple of months ago for the nice guys at Popular Mechanics, for an article describing the geeky aspects of the games.
