These people are from the old fishermans neighbourhood in Valencia: El Cabanyal. The city council wants to bury it under a layer of concrete and make new tall and fashionable buildings and boulevards for rich people. Pure property speculation. The problem is more complicated than that but you can get an idea here (für meine deutsche freunde, it´s in german..) and here you will find some incidents from the last days where we have been fighting against demolition. Sorry I don´t have any link in english.
This a sample from an animation I´m working on. It´s short but tasty. I´m sorry but the original file (quicktime) was playing the video as a loop but the blogger file is not doing it, don´t know why...
Last job I made for a film (can´t tell the name yet). It´s kind of storyboard, but more close to advertising storyboards than usual stories for films, because it´s full colour and more detailed. The target was to make it very eye-catching to achieve the collaboration of a well-known hotel company in the film. Can you guess at what country is happening the action? (hope so)
Happy new bear to everybody! (a little late) I made some mural work for Burjassot´s council (a town next to Valencia). It´s on a new building for young people and social activities, they have rehearsing rooms and things like that.
La Puerta de Tannhaüser (Door of Tannhaüser) it´s a colective illustration blog. Every two weeks there´s a new subject and everybody does his own vision of it. Las week was about The Immortals, and I presented this (two immortals sharing a flat).
I´m sorry, don´t know how to translate this one and make it funny. It´s a comic for a cool agenda that my friends at Le Patraix Festival collective are bringing out. More information at Green Banquito or Patraix Festival.
This is a pretty old illustration I was going to use for a postcard but finally it became a christmas calendar (only with christmas dates) for Intermon Oxfam. So those of you who are into the Xmas thing and want to collaborate with fair-trade this is your present for december. Here is the link for the Intermón shop site (in spanish...) Under every date´s flap there´s a little chocolate (with cacao from Dominican Republic and Peru) wich will be a sweet surprise for the kids.
I admit that this sort of collaboration (buying things) is kind of easy or lazy but this people is fighting for a different way of commerce (and much more), having in mind not the economic interests of a single company but the effort, dignity and interests of the producers/workers at several countries around the world. So I suppose any help is welcome.
Thanx to Rocío and special thanx to Gabri (the fairy fellow again...)
