I’m Alfonso Elola, I live in Madrid but I’m Venezuelan, I’m an illustrator and I have always worked for advertising agencies but in my portfolios I only show my personal drawings, which have nothing to do with advertising. I have attached a couple of illustrations. It’s from a series that I use to practice color and composition, I called organic portrait, and it is a set of portraits of fantasy characters mixed with much flourish and a fairly baroque style.
Submitted by Sainte-luce Jerome
Born in 1981 in Perpignan, Sainte-Luce Jérôme studied Applied Arts at Rivières Des Pères, then Plastic Arts in 1999, after some experiments in Spain and then in the Ardèche. He obtained a DSAA specialized design, Estian school in Paris, in 2002, Trainer of Applied Arts since 2009, he practices in various training centers of the island of Guadeloupe. Since 2009, notably with the exhibition “The Engraved Souls”, Sainte-Luce Jérôme develops a work of visual research, traversing Native American culture, a unifying element of the history and heritage of the Caribbean space. Indeed, “haunted” by the loss of memory, the artist tirelessly bypasses the Native American petroglyphs and asks the question of the “other state” after the death of man, and thus the question of the trace left… What remains nevertheless, after the extinction of an entire civilization. Focused around different used fabrics of recovery, painted supports torn, cut, scraped and then stitched, his artistic approach takes shape from the petroglyphs, these engraved rocks, on which the artist grafts his imaginary world. A universe where souls are wandering ghosts looking for a smuggler, an elsewhere recently carried by the series “The Souls smugglers” and ‘LESPWINEG’.

On this canvas, I made my impression of a sandy beach in Turkey. I was just walking along the Mediterranean coast and there were only pebbles of different colors under my feet. So I decided to recreate this feeling of passing through the colored sand, applying not only the color but also the texture.

I enjoy drawing the characters that brought me joy in my youth. When the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles hit the toy shelves back in ’88, I was instantly intrigued despite the fact I had never heard of or seen them before. I picked up a Donatello and spent the next few weeks studying the card back for the information it provided, not only about the character, but also about what other figures were available. Here, I’ve attached illustrations of those characters.

I very much enjoyed working on this project as I could be part of it from start to finish. Before starting to think of a style I developed a concept, a general mood and elements connected to the experience going to the festival. Then I worked on different sketches on the iPad and after presenting couple of options to the client I painted the final illustration on Pro Create. It was interesting to mix illustration and lettering, treating the letters as part of the illustration just using the iPad.

While I’m a painter, my work is basically a kind of creative doodling, with paint on a canvas. In other words, I create something from nothing. It’s all about improvisation, it’s what you do with a pen on a piece of paper when you have nothing to do, in the bus, in the subway, at a restaurant, in a waiting room, everywhere… You draw some quick doodles, without thinking, without any goal in mind, or any idea of what you’re going to draw, just for fun, and sometimes one of them takes shape, and seems funny. I just push this everybody’s game a little bit further, and the fun of it!

Submitted by Giezelle Bernal
Hello, my name is Giezelle Bernal. I am consider an artist with a complex motive of understanding myself and the world, which means I rely on my own mind and thinking about the things I truly enjoy and not always batting an eye on something that makes me feel unpleasant. If you want to know who I am, I have depression and anxiety and I tend to compare myself with others which often leads to distancing social life. Of course, that doesn’t stop me from doing what I want. I have graduated with a BFA in 3D animation at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. I am using Maya for 3d animation and After Effects for editing. I am also using Photoshop and Corel painter for conceptual design and typography. For now on, I am continuing making animations and illustration as a side job for as long as I can live.

For this collection I wanted to create something colorful using vibrant colors in order to represent my hometown Cancun, Mexico. It is a collection that has been evolving through the years and I like to continue creating new artworks that combine organic elements such as plants, animals, and tropical landscapes of the Riviera Maya. Illustrations are originally made in watercolor, acrylic or inks; then digitized in order to edit and customize them for different applications such as postcards, prints & notebooks.
