When I first saw this title, I thought: It sounds as easy as how to bring peace to the world (being sarcastic), but after reading the first pages, I was caught by its simplicity and the way it explains relevant facts. Continue reading

I went to a cocktail party at a Men Style Shop, invited by a good friend. Everything was cool, specially the Cognac, which I tasted for the first time in my life!
I was meeting very important people at the event, so I wanted to surprise them with an Illustration, (one of my favorite ways to show my portfolio) so I made some greeting cards with a nice phrase on the inside, related to the event.
I didn’t know which illustration would be perfect for the occasion, so I looked into my sketch book and found some nice ones of bearded guys doing normal stuff. I chose one and tried to apply some color, however it didn’t work for me, I guess because of the sketchy look that I love so much on my drawings.
So I decided to go with some shadows instead of color and… TARA! Here it is.
Medellín is a wonderful city! Besides its nice weather and delicious “empanadas”, is a place full of history and art. I had the opportunity to visit Pies Descalzos Park, where actually you can take off your shoes, and connect with Mother Nature. I went also to Botero Plaza, a magical place where I got lost, however I didn’t regret, because sometimes it’s good to get lost and talk to people. Continue reading
Hi, I’m José! After getting my MBA, I worked for different local and international Companies as Administrative. One day, I went to a Photography Workshop in a Museum looking for some fun with my new camera. A lovely lady asked me if I was good at drawing. I answered: Sure! She said: Then you should join our painting workshops on Saturdays.
Since then, I’ve never been the same. Illustration has become a way to express myself , to help others to communicate visually, and to escape from everyday routines doing what I love the most.
