Still busy after a while

Hello, hello, hello.

Well it’s been quite some time since my last publication in here. Lot of stuff had happened in my life. The main one is that since more or less more than a year I am no longer working in Barcelona, you can find me instead at Das Kabinett, in Berlin. Thanks to Matteo that opened the doors of the studio for me. This is an important detail as I still get requests from people believing that I am living in Spain! Anyway, I don’t know when I will come back for a visit honestly- I’ve been too lazy on moving and planning guests spots lately as I am too comfortable in the shop right now. So I welcome all of you to get the Das Kabinett experience, you will like it.

Apart of those little news that I felt like sharing (hahaha) I am bringing some pictures of the last paintings I’ve been working on. Quarantine ended up being quite busy for me, but I am very happy that I am finding time to paint more and trying new things. There’s a bunch of not so big originals and a comission -thank you Patrick for buying one of my bloody ladies and asking me for doing something custom for you (:

This one it is no longer available!
This was the comission for Patrick. Its a coat of arms a bit more cooler.

Next post for sure will be about my lasts tattoos and the designs that are still available in case you want to add something new to your collection.

If you wish to buy any of the originals that I have left, feel free to write me an e-mail!

And that’s if for today after two years I think hahahaha.

Nordic piece for Carlos

Hello everyone,

It’s been long since my last post, but well, here you have me again. Life lately has been about only working as much as I can, and trying to figure it out how to present my work on social media. Finally I got a camera! (which I am still fightning with, trying to  understand how to use it properly) and I also got some little time to type on this website and speak about my last piece with you.

This time I am going to show you this tattoo that was done on Carlos, who came all the way from London, desperately wanting to get this piece with me. I know, it’s weird, right? Like, who the hell travels that long to spend so much time with a weirdo like me. When he arrived to the shop -he looked like he just came from hell. It seems like he didn’t had any money for the plane ticket because he was spending it already on the tattoo, and decided to swim the atlantic ocean and then get to Barcelona with auto-stop. I’ve never met a customer that is that mad before (and also a bit creepy) Anyway, here is the result:

This piece was highly inspired on a leg I did some time ago with my boss (Peter Madsen)  and it took us two full day sessions. I was pretty surprise that Carlos sat throught those two days properly, considerating the state that he came with to the shop. It ended up being a very good man. The only time he spoke with me was when we were finishing the second day -thank you Carlos for being so scary to work with.

Here you can check a little video of the piece too.

Until next time, strangers!

Moth from my flash

Hello everyone,

I am more than happy to be writing this right now -things in my life had been quite busy lately, so being able to just sit and start typing it’s getting quite relaxing… and I am excited too for showing you all the details of the last illustration I’ve been working on this week.

We had a flash event many moons ago where we celebrated spring and we all got inspired by our newest resident artist at the shop: Subliquida (Andrea Baiardo) He is an eccentric (but lovely) man who is obssesed with nature. I’ve never met before someone with such a passion for insects and botanical, and i’ts something that one can clearly appreciate in his own artwork. The event we had was an inauguration of his exposition at Meatshop, so we worked on some flash based on that theme. Unfortunately, I didn’t had enough time or inspiration to came with a bunch of flash as I usually do when we have flash events -but I made some of them which I ended up pretty happy with.

Still, I haven’t got to tattoo them! So that’s why I though about making a proper illustration of this designs -I wish that if you are closer to what my vision for the tattoo is, you will be as excited as me as seeing them on some skin.

I worked on this illustration in a way I haven’t worked in such a long time! Color pencils where my option for this little project, as I was at the shop and forgot about my watercolors at my place (duh) I am quite happy with the result. For sure I will use more color pencils in a future. Here you can see some other shots from the piece, details and a little bit of the process with the dotting.

And that’s it. Remember that this design is made for be a tattoo!! Don’t doubt in writing me, I do think it deserves a nice portion of skin to show off to the world.
