A few weeks ago someone wrote on my facebook page requesting I make some of my illustrations available for wallpaper downloads. So here they are! I chose Foliage Dream, Emerald Garden and The Inner Light to begin with, and I'd be happy to make more available upon request. ♥

My Sweet George 

“When you've seen beyond yourself, then you may find, peace of mind is waiting there.”

 I've been watching Gorge Harrison videos all morning in honor of his 68th birthday. Eric Clapton just said something amazing in the behind the scenes video of Concert For George. He said his favorite songs were the ones that were innocent and from the heart, he called them: Spiritual Love Songs. I've said this before and I'll say it again, George is my absolute favorite person in the entire world. EVERThis april will be specially important and meaningful, on the last day of Coachella, George's son, Dhani will be playing with his band "Fistful of Mercy"... not only is the music beautiful, but it is the closest I'll ever be to George. ♥

Ohm Shanti Shanti 

This project is really special to me. My life changed from the moment I read "Buddhism Plain and Simple" by Steve Hagen. The path to awakening is difficult but I believe many activities can translate into meditation, in my case it is painting.  Spirituality through geometry is the perfect combination. I can't express how relaxing painting mandalas is. I will be posting all my mandalas on my website, I hope you enjoy them :)  I leave you with is a simple definition of mandalas: Mandalas offer balancing visual elements, symbolizing unity and harmony. The meanings of individual mandalas is usually different and unique to each mandala. The goal of the mandala is to serve as a tool on our spiritual journey as it symbolizes cosmic and psychic order.

Mandalas now available on my etsy shop!

Happy Valentine's Day!

I was inspired to make my own Valentine's chocolate bars when I saw this tutorial on the old Creature Comforts Blog. I hand-painted the labels and printed them out. Here are a few pics of my process.

 ♥ Happy Valentine's Day everyone! ♥

I found this contest on Talenthousean online creative, collaborative, community, beginning with film, fashion, art, music, and photography. The high quality creative community gathers at Talenthouse to showcase their creative work, connect and collaborate with other artists. The contest consists of creating something new with Anne Klein's vintage lion logo. I thought it would be fun to give it a try :)

I'm not sure how it works, but I think you can vote for my design here and click on the "Support Ana Victoria Button". I just really like lions!

Editorial picture is from Anne Klein's ad campaign and Scarf from MellowDayss etsy store.

The Beatles Part 1

Anyone who knows me can tell you that I'm a huge Beatles Fan. It started when I was about 8 or 9 years old. I remember this because by 1995 (the year The Beatles Anthology was released) I was already completely in love with them. By the time I was 14 I had already gone to London, left my message for John, Paul, George and Ringo on the walls of Abbey Road and bought every single piece of Beatles memorabilia you can imagine. My love for them has just kept on growing over the years. I could sit here and write about how much I worship them and how I know every lyric and movie line ever written, but instead I'll just post these images of my most recent project. Love is all you need.
