Sonic-Soma is an amazing new blog, about music, design and everyday life. It is managed by my friend and design parter at Spark*, Orestes Mora. This blog is based in México and posts about events, people and situations around the world. I'm a true fan of this site and the outer-spacey look it has to it. So I am honoured to be mentioned this week on www.sonic-soma.com
Take a look!

Experimenting with Lithography
I just finished a lithography course I took in Mexico City. It's such an interesting artsy-chemical process, I loved it!
Drawing before I traced it on to the stone.
Stone, all inked up and powdered up.
Offset ink and stone in press!
First prints drying.
Print Close up (fabriano cotton based paper)
Experimenting with different papers.

Old Fashioned Way of Making a Pattern
I found a tutorial on Design Sponge on how to make a repeat pattern without using a computer. All though it does help to put the final design together in photoshop. It was a lot of fun and I plan on making a bunch of these. It's not perfect, but I think I did ok for my first try!

Artichoke and Squash Pattern Strip
I've been looking for different ways to apply my illustrations. This is my first try at pattern making. I printed out a strip of my pattern (click here to see complete pattern designs) Artichoke and Squash on Adhesive Vinyl. I can't wait to see it on textile, and coffee mugs!
