Cuentos expatriados

This is the title of the first book that David Gambarte has published. Is a compilation of ten stories, impeccably writen, full of emotion and emptyness, fear, love, passion, human behaviour through the magnifying glass... None of the stories or the characters will leave you indifferent.
David asked me to do the cover for his book, and I have to said that it has been a great honour to be part of this his first project. From here I want ot congratulate and wish the best to him!

Reason loves...

...Emotion. As reads the title of this post, this equation was the slogan for the new image of the previously mentioned Agency Cul de Sac in Valencia.
They wanted a picture that will go with the new slogan of the company, and after much thinking, this is the result.
Design plus nature, reason and emotion. I also wanted that when looking at the picture you want to keep your eye on it...just in case something else happened, and that the person that is looking at it, could feel for a second, the pause that creates tension.
I want to thank my dear friend Christian , for been with me and help me during this shooting . It would have been impossible to work under the windy stormy weather!

Three little owls

During my staying in Valencia, I have rediscover my own style to illustrate, I still love the minimalistic drawings,  watercolours and children motives, but I have to confess that i feel much confortable in the black and white field, and even the style reminds on the naive line, it gets a bit more complicated, and elaborated. I still draw children, ( I will post, in some point, some of them)...but today I want to share with you a serie of owls that I did some time ago, and from where this adventure starts. Is kind of contradictory, how  black and white photos are not calling me later...but in the other hand, with a black pen in my hand i get really inspired....Hope you like them!

Valencian Design

Bit late to post this one work, but i wanted to shared it with you all. Last year I had the honour to photograph , some products of a  furniture company, based in Valencia, Spain, Koo International.
Art directing this project was the very talented people of CuldeSac, a fantastic and several times awarded advertising company, from the same city. Really, it was a great pleasure!
