Since my 1st and 2nd car accident little fright, I got some few lessons from my older brother and had enough self-confidence to ask him to take the wheel myself.

A couple of months ago, I submitted a set of comic strips for a competition to a Brazilian newspaper. The comics had to be about international and (Brazilian) national economic situation. The prize was to be a three months collaboration contract with the paper
Unfortunately I didn’t win (damnit!), so I decided to have them published here, one per day, to a friendlier public.
Maybe if these comics become viral in internet, making me world famous, the Brazilian newspaper editor will deadly regret not choosing me, and he will offer me a juicy contract for life, and I’ll gently refuse it…
Well, time to go back to reality…sigh

I’m proud to present here a work I did, a couple of weeks ago, for a Catalan sanitary fitting manufacturer - Ramon Soler S.A -.
I was asked to make an illustration for their stand for a Bath Equipment Fair in Paris – Ideobain 2012 – representing a bathroom.
Since the elements they wanted to emphasize were the companies’ launch of this year, I decided to use a very clean line, kind of naïve; to be as neutral as possible in the spatial matter. What I had in mind, -and tried to express- was the everyday life of a contemporary young couple living in a city.

This week the Spanish Supreme Court convicted judge Baltazar Garzón with 11 years of disqualification.
He is a kind of mediatic judge here, who prosecuted some very controversial cases; like the case against Augusto Pinochet and the Argentinean and Chilean dictatorships, or cases against Franco’s crimes during the dictatorship.
For many Spanish he is a hero.
The sentence was concerning a major political case of corruption of which he was in charge. Apparently, he illegally ordered wire-tapping, to gather information against the corruption plot, recording the conversation between prisoners and their lawyers.
You can see some detailed information about him, and the case here.
Ironically, he was the only person actually convicted of all the corruption cases that are on the news nowadays in Spain.

I’m collaborating, with some of my illustrations, with the 'vida+fácil' group, which means “easier life” in Spanish.
The group was created with the intention to think of better ways of living in a city. An alternative to assuming a mortgage that will chain you for life to a place or for renting - with all additional expenses you have to face; taxes, estate agency’s commissions and insurances – which also makes moving a real problem...
The second, to which I put much more work , was a series of 5 panels for an architectural competition (BAM-012), explaining, by comic characters, the way of living in a building with cloud housing concept incorporated.
Each panel explains one aspect of the concept, such as management, sustainability, diversity and flexibility. All together they compose a storyline that shows you an alternative, and literally, an easier way of living.

And als0, I was working to create a mascot for an elder, children, pets and house care business, which is called “Canguravis i nens” – avis is grandparents and nens is children in catalan.
The business mascot is a Kangaroo, since this animal transmit, with it belly pocket, this sense of protection. I started to draft some versions of the animal, and realize that you can transmit different concept of the business, according to the way you represent the drawing.
I made to my client (and dear friend) three propositions:
The first one, more Disney like, has this aura of motherhood, and transmit the warmness and sense of care that is implied in the business.
The third one is inspired on Japanese characters, is cuddly and cute. It intends to transmit loveliness and affection.
The version my client has chose is …..tcha tcha tcha tchaaaan
The second one!
Here is the coloured version
The reason is that, since it has this neutral aspect, it helps to put him in different contexts (playing with children, caring the elder, walking the dog…), and his unique features make him easily identifiable with the company.
And you, which one you would choose?
PS. Drafting the Kangaroos, I actually realize how much they look like big rats with a bad mood face.
