I’m pleased to announce that I will be part of the next Mail Me art, Mail Me Art: Short & Sweet (MMA3). Mail Me Art is a British-based project, run by Darren Di Lieto, the founder and co-editor of the illustration news portal The Little Chimp Society.
That’s the Project’s site
I’m very happy and proud, it will be my second time on this project.
Here you can see my contribution, I was planning a more ambitious piece but sadly work and real life forced me to do something fast to produce, but I will keep my initial project for next MM.
On the mailmeart.com site you can see the other artist contributions, lots of talent and great art pieces. Oh! and cool videos like this one
Yesterday, 10th March, ended the exhibition “25 years of illustration at Llotja”, I had some of my recent jobs exhibited there.
The exhibition was held in the Centre d’Artesania de Catalunya, an art exhibition center of the Catalonia Government, is located in the old town, in the center of Barcelona, near Las Ramblas.
The exhibit was displaying the last 25 years of illustration in Catalonia done by illustrators trained in La Llotja, the official Arts & Crafts School.
Was great to see what the old friends are currently doing, and discover that some of the great illustration colleagues you can see around, are also from the school.
From March 19th to April 19th this exhibition will be open again, this time at the Espai Nau U of the School Llotja de Sant Andreu, carrer Pare Manyanet, nº 40, Barcelona http://www.llotja.cat
Barcelona TV has featured the past exhibition (starts at minute 6:00)

I was thinking on doing some art for Halloween, but we don’t celebrate Halloween.
So I decided to do some art about what I really celebrate on November 1st eve.
The eve of All Saints’ Day (1 November) we use to meet with friends and family to remember our passed ones while eating toasted chestnuts sweet potatoes, drinking sweet wine (Moscatell) and eating panellets. I love Panellets!
Panellets are small sweets, made of marzipan, the most common are rolled in pine nuts and varnished with egg white, but there are other flavors like vanilla, quince, chestnut, or hazelnut. These are the ones waiting for me on my pantry.
