Illustrations Everywhere

Posted in Uncategorized on November 13, 2017 by Wirtz Animation

Its been quite some time since I’ve posted here, between work, life, family, and overall shenanigans, I’ve been kept busy.

That doesn’t mean there hasn’t been work to be done, somehow I’ve found myself on an uphill battle aiming to highlight the importance of Illustration and comercial artists in several fields.  It hasn’t been for naught though, this last year has shown some sizeable changes.  More and more I’m finding companies that value the importance of strong visual presence and illustrations are starting to surface on varied products all over.

As an illustrator, I’m always looking for ways to showcase my work other than paper, canvas, or digitaly.

Running through those thoughts, I´ve come across sites such as etsy.com, Curioos.com, ello.com, redbubble.com, and Society6.com where artists get the option of uploading their art to have it transformed into printed materials.  This is a fantastic option for those of us who simply can´t seem to find something we truly love (or those of us with overblown egos that need to see our work in every shape and size).

Sample work from my Society6 store (https://society6.com/doodlevania).

I can´t help but try and come up with other solutions to where our art can be used as an added value to a client´s product or service.

Random sketches

Well I came across several pieces I had worked on, and for the life of me, I can’t recall which of these have been uploaded and where. So here’s the bunch all at once (my web time is a little limited so I don’t get to do it often).

Enjoy.

Quiet but not inactive

This past year has been an interesting one, filled with achievements, lows, and weird in betweens, but I’m not here to complain.  Today I wanted to share some pieces that have been moving in some recent art bazars.  Hope you enjoy, (and if you’re interested in comissioned work shoot a line).

 

Capital Iberoamericana de Cultura (old)

Posted in Uncategorized on February 22, 2016 by Wirtz Animation

More old work coming out of the woodworks.  These were characters designed as proposals for the Capital Iberoamericana de Cultura. Quite fun to create, their backgrounds were created using old wives tales or historic characters.

Editorial Illustrations, Contrapoder

Posted in Illustration on February 18, 2016 by Wirtz Animation

Another oldie I almost left forgotten.  This was a piece created to entice readers to create a short story for it.  The images were inspired by Lovecraft´s work (in case it wasn´t obvious), feel free to give it a shot and write something up.

Echoes of a Neverending Scream

This is a new post on old material, back in 2013 we organized an expo honoring Edvard Munch´s 150th Bday and all did homage pieces.  Here´s some process shots and the final piece of mine (it had been stashed away for a while already)

Editorial Work (Plaza Pública GT)

Posted in Illustration on February 16, 2016 by Wirtz Animation

Its been quite some time since I´ve had the chance to post anything in this blog.  In my defense, it´s been a few months of heavy activity participating in art bazaars, expos, a few light independent gigs, and not so few heavy ones.  One such project has been to create editorial illustrations for Plaza Pública GT (www.plazapublica.com.gt) where I´ve been featured with editorial illustrations (and a couple of videos now).  So I decided to share some of the illustrations.

 

Enjoy.
