Do you have one of those preteen daughters at home who enjoys to paint girls? Do you secretly relax by filling your children’s coloring books? Do you want to have a glance at the next summer’s fashion? In all of those cases you might be interested in the new series of drawings that I am going to post weekly here: coloring pages* about the upcoming fashion.
Click on the image and you will get to the DIN A4 pdf file that can be printed out and colored. I suggest using the color palette under the drawing but, naturally, that’s up to the coloring artist.
The first of these drawings is a classic refreshed by Dolce & Gabbana, that I found in the ELLE.com. Wouldn’t it be great to have a walk on the beach in this dress?
I would be pleased to receive your proposals: is there an outfit you have found in a runway or a magazine and would like to see here? Send it to me!

Last week I met the journalist Melanie Axter, who interviewed me about my job and how I landed being a Spanish illustrator living in Stuttgart. It was a very nice talk and the interview was published yesterday in the local paper “Stuttgarter Wochenblatt”. We had contacted this newspaper like so many other media around Stuttgart, as we were preparing our group exhibition “Stuttgart illustriert“, that´s how they came to know about us and about myself.
I have been telling you in some posts about the charity action initiated by Prinzessin Häberle in which I drew on bags you could get by donating money. Our Prinzessin ran this action only through Facebook and only for 7 days. She collected this way 1070 Euros that were transferred yesterday to the city shelter for women in Stuttgart. The money will be used to provide the women and kids living in that house with some special days away of the dullness of their everyday life. Due to anonymity issues no big publicity about it is allowed, but you can see here the princess herself smiling proud after her accomplished mission.
My calendar shows a new month: May has arrived. The weather invites us to run a bit again and now that we are getting so close to the middle of the year, it is time to endure and keep with the good habits we learned in the previous months: being strong, aspiring,focusing and keeping the rythm. Fancy a marathon?
Passionate, feminine and classic: That’s how I see the Taurus woman. Like “Carmen”, like my Carmen, my mother. These are shoes you can do (almost) anything in: From dancing to working or going out and they always look good. Which fits with the description of Taurus: She likes security and comfort (and is a warmhearted person, important too). The background color MUST be red.
Yesterday we closed our exhibition “Stuttgart illustriert” with a party full of color: on the buffet bar and on the wall where all of us had the pleasure to paint. We illustrators and our clients, friends and family had great fun at the live painting event. The transparent wall became slowly a small robot world.
If you are interested in acquiring this funny painting you can send your bid and your contact data to the mail address firstname.lastname@example.org until Monday 22nd of April at 12:00 PM. Remember, the money goes to the GEDOK association in Stuttgart, who supports female artists.
You know most of us, illustrators, carry a sketchbook with us where we eventually draw what we see, what inspires us or just to practice. Normally those sketchbooks are like a diary and we pick the people we show them to. It is something somehow intimate. Drawing is not an art that is performed in front of an audience. Normally.
But if you want to see us at work, drawing from scratch and trying to control our own surprise while the drawing takes form: you can come to our closing party on Saturday in the gallery GEDOK, starting at 11:00 AM. All illustrators who participated in our current exhibition are going to draw together, live, at one single piece of work that we will sell per silent auction. The benefit goes to the GEDOK organization in Stuttgart, who supports female artists and was so generous to provide us with the room to show our drawings and paintings.
If you are interested in acquiring the unique piece of art that will result out of this event, you can come by or you can send your bid and your contact data to the mail address email@example.com
It will be possible to follow the progress of our work through our Facebook site. You can bid until Monday 22nd of April at 12:00 PM.
