    I made a puppet building video that might help too. Check it out!

    I made this illustration. Jim Henson has definitely been a strong influence in my life.
    Stay creative, keep playing like kids. There's no more serious way to live life!

    Is that a painting? Just wondering.

  7. Yes, it's a digital painting. I'm a cartoonist and an illustrator.

    I thought it looked real, but turns out that it's a digital one.

    What kinds of illustrations and what kind of illustrator are you?
     

  9. Thanks! I make different kinds of works. Mainly caricatures and illustrations for children books.

    You're welcome! What kinds of art do you specifically do?

  11. All that in my blog is mine. You can even see older posts. Almost all the blog is in Spanish (because I live in Argentina), and English (because it's the universal language). I've worked in animation, I make caricatures from photos for clients, I illustrate books, I've made covers for magazines. I change techniques and styles when I need to adaptate my work for specific works.
    I have done illustrations for books from other countries. You may have seen these books. The first books were drawn by me (https://www.homeschoolbuyersco-op.org/human-body-detectives/).
    But in those years there was an intermediary that absorbed the work, I don't think my name appears there, unfortunately. And sadly, I still don't have any book of those in my hands.
    Now I'm working in an hebraic version of the Genesis.
    Also for 5 years I worked assisting a comic artist for Marvel, Vertigo and other editorials, Leandro Fernández. And I'm a teacher at an art school.

    I don't think that I can go on your site because I won't be able to understand Spanish and instead will have to use a translator. I only understand English, sorry.

    What do you teach at the art school?

  13. But, it's also in English. If you look at each post, it's in Spanish first and below it it's in English. And the titles are in both languages.
    I teach Portrait and Caricature, Drawing workshop, Character creation for Animation and Concept Art.

    Suggestion for your site:

    Make your profile in English as well along with your list of blogs.
     
  18. Yes, I know. It's just I started with works here in my country, and then I hadn't enough time to translate all.
    I'm in Facebook too. But there's all in Spanish. However I participate in many international groups.

  20. No, I thank you! I know that. I will do that when I can, but that's the idea. We (me and other artists) are working on making a studio. There are great artists here and we need to work in better projects.
