Book of Drawings

After two years of gathering and selecting many old and recent drawings, my book is finally here. Printing suffered some unexpected delays due to technical problems but we made it in the end!
This books contains 128 pages of sketches, tattoo line drawings and preparatory illustrations. My intention was to mix up a personal selection of work that has driven me through 14 years of tattooing experience. A lot has happened during this time and it’s been really funny to search and find old stuff that I was able to link with my most recent work. Somehow, noticing a technical evolution but remaining the same in many creative ways. In those pages, old timers are alongside new comers…precisely for this purpose.

This project has seen the light under the production of Okulus Bookshop and Publishing . I’m really happy to contribute to their own catalogue after many years of beign a client and sharing with them a lot of international conventions. I still think that this kind of close collaboration with your local book dealer is extremely important if you want to keep bookstore culture alive. In this case, as Okulus is maybe the best tattoo specialized bookstore in Europe (and maybe one of the best in the world), the choice goes beyond friendship. As a distributor, Okulus will make sure the book is represented in some countries and not only in the internet, so maybe you’ll have a chance of taking a look at it at some tattoo convention or bookstore before buying it. That’s priceless in the amazon era. Thanks Lorenzo and Javi for supporting my work over the years, it means a lot.

I have also wanted to put up an special edition of this book, consisting in 15 selected packs that include the cover illustration as a print and also a limited edition embroidered patch. I hope it will be interesting enough to those collectors out there! All 15 books will come signed and with some extra too that only buyers will know once the sealed packs are open. For this special edition I’ve worked again with Artplus for the screenprinting and La Frivé for the packaging. Every print inside comes with it’s own folder as you can see in the pictures. Lettering on the book cover and the packaging has been done by the master Ivan Castro…thanks again for your art! Finally, the final tuning and overall book design is a work by Terry Sucrana at Black Bible Books. I want to give thanks to all of them for putting their best into these pages and pack.

Thanks again for keeping an eye to my work and remember…griffins lead the way.

Little Black Heart

This little black, armored heart, has taken me ages to finish it and several atempts too. It’s not big but I really want it to work it out in a very special way as it is planned to be the cover of my new book of drawings. It will be on display till july 8th at Eclipse Tattoo Barcelona as a part of our first anniversary exhibition if you have the chance and the will to see it live. You can already buy it if you are interested too, just click on the picture to know about all details. Special screenprints will be available soon.

I want to give thanks again to those that keep on supporting me in my tattoo and illustration days, the ones who really enjoy my hairy animals and specially to those who know about my personal symbols and pay a devilish attention to details.
Thanks for keeping an eye to my work.

I’m ver happy to announce that I’ll be working at Happy Pets Studio, Lausanne (Switzerland) for the first time.

And also, I will have the pleasure of visiting Zürich and spend a pair of days at World’s end Tattoo Studio. I’m really happy for it and I already feel welcome to a studio settled since 1999…!
