Difumina illustration workshop to end the holidays.

In the first post on my work blog I will tell you about my invigorating experience in the Catalan Pyrenees. I thought it would be a good way to get back to work with full blast energy. I attended an illustration workshop organized by Difumina. My group was tutored by Sonia Pulido, an illustrator I have great respect and admiration for. Sonia proposed to do a series of illustrations themed "journey to the inside".

The results were very different and in the end my journey was more like a study of the small details I spotted in nature. I find it interesting to collect many of the same object and then spot the differences, which is always quite more drastic than what I imagine when I think of, say, two sticks, or two stones or leaves. Each single one of them will be completely different and to think of the vast amount of elements around us, each with their own differences is mind-blowing to me. This is what captivated me and I'm hoping to be doing something with all the sketches I did and turn it into a finished project.

Here are some of my sketches:


Dry flower buds.


A feather.

Pine nut details.

This was what my working space looked like:

These are the lovely people from my workshop group with Sonia.
