I'm feeling really good today! Partly because I started doing ZUMBA and I love every minute of it.
It doesn't feel like a workout to me since I love dancing and my instructor is very positive and has so much energy.
Another thing I like about zumba are the colors, the whole class wears super bright t-shirts. It's pretty cool to watch!
Here's my instructor's page BRAZILZUMBA.COM www.brazilzumba.com/

On another note, I have a new friend Kentaro Hisa, an amazing illustrator from japan. And he inspires me to become a better artist. Check out how he does hair, it's amazing!

I know it's been a while! What can I say... Being a mom/wife  & freelancer is kicking my butt!
My little boss is very tough and demanding of my time and even though I've working I haven't been able to post anything.

Hace tiempo que no vengo a DA. La verdad es que entre siendo mama y freelancer apenas si tengo tiempo de actualizar mi galeria.

Working on a special origami doll so please come back soon!

I've been working on some new art pieces inspired by washi (origami) dolls.
I decided not to add hands on any of them.

It's fun working on these!

My country was affected by the eruption of a volcano and the tropical storm Agatha. Both natural disasters have caused many people dead or missing.  I'm very outraged that none of the major networks ran this story. This is just as important as Haiti!

Please keep them in your prayers.
Hi everyone!

I've been busy working on a facebook game since the beginning of this year. I designed lots of UI elements plus a lot of cute illustrations.

Hi Everyone!
It's been a long time and I have great news for you... I now have a collection skins for laptops, ipods, etc. But here's the best part: a percentage goes to a good cause to help the environment. Check it out!!!

Other news... I'm bored with my website! I can't decide what I want to do with it. I hate the pink, and want it to be clean, professional and at the same time I want it to be fun and showcase my illustrations. What should I do? Help please!!!!
If you have any suggestions or if you would like to collaborate with me, let me know. We can work something out.

That's all for now, folks!


Peace!!!

Mine is pretty hot so far!
I'm enjoying my new job at MobileGreetings.com
I get to work on a lot of cool mobile projects like greeting cards, mini sites, and avatars. So far, I'm having lots of fun!

Happy new year everybody!
I've been looking at my website and it looks dated already!

I'm thinking of giving my site a makeover...I think it needs a splash of color!
More pizazz like the Herbal Essences site...I luv the purples and the pinks
What do you think? Who wants to do it for me? he he!
