How are you?
I've been away for a while because I've been very busy with my last book: Hansel and Gretel, it will be released for iPad and iPhone (and soon for Android as well) and it took me a lot of time (25 illustrations! O_O) but I had so much fun experimenting a new character design and trying to use just patterns and no textures in every single illustration.
Here you can find some of my best illustrations from this book: www.behance.net/gallery/Hansel…
My holidays are quite sad this year, my dog is passing away and I know I will miss him very much; he's almost 15 and I've assisted to his birth in May 22d 1997.
Anyway I'm trying to be positive: I would love to have another dog and...a cat! I've never had a cat and I need one
I hope your holidays could be more cheerful ^ ^
I've chosen some important words in my Xmas/Holidays message this year. I think family is the one you choose: partners and friends. And pets of course
I'm starting another book within a week and I'm so excited. This year I've worked on six books!!! Plus other little works (posters, flyers and magazine covers). This has been a very positive year for my profession.
I hope 2012 can be even better ^^
This work is VERY HARD and you have to think the better you can and you need the courage to try, you need to be self confident sometimes... I love this work, it takes the bigger part of my time
I received some notes from people asking for prints: I don't have prints on dA anymore; anyway you can buy almost all of my prints on my ETSY SHOP and also ask for a print you cannot find, just send me a message here or on Etsy mail:www.etsy.com/shop/mairimartwww.etsy.com/shop/mairimart
I also made some whimsical bookmarks with glitters and beads, you can find them there!
If you are interested in some products featuring my illustrations, instead, I have a Zazzle Shop, you can also ask for a product with a drawing you like and you cannot find in the shop, just send me an email or a private message,a note ^^ you just need to drop a line and I always reply (mostly via email, I mean, my email replies are always faster because I check my email address daily from my smartphone)www.zazzle.com/mairim_artwww.zazzle.com/mairim_art
Yay! My illustration about "Privacy" (here you can find the full story) has been selected for Tapirulan international exhibit and Catalogue 2012!mairimart.blogspot.com/2011/12…
Well... I think it's all... ^^
