This is a part of some project Im developing for Havas Prague, in which I ended up adding a flat illustration of one of my favorite Japanese artists Yayoi Kusama. So this is my homage to her :) I wonder who will notice this little detail when they see the whole visual :)
Don’t be scared… Let you talent guide you
and it will be just perfect

These were the kind and wise words of my boss this morning when I told him that I was afraid of not knowing how to do some sketches. Awesome! How many times we need to hear supportive words from our bosses or employers. But, actually! How many times do we actually pay attention to these kinds of messages!
Be aware people, nice things are out there for you, you just need to listen carefully.
Have an awesome day! :)

Tuesday, February 04, 2014 Citizens Pact For European Democracy, logo design
I was encouraged by my friend Monica Marquez to participate in a contest an NGO logo. I found myself in the busiest time of the year, traveling between Prague and Berlin to develop one of the biggest campaigns for O2 and also developing more of Dr. Parek. So, at the time I couldnt see all I was going to achieve, but now I can tell you, Im a rock star! :) I endend up winning the logo contest, doing a great job in Berlin, winning a couple more advertising awards, and still manage to spend time with my awsome boyfriend and my dancing.
Guys, if anybody reads me out there, Im writing this because sometimes, we get into a workoholic mode and rarely we stop to see what we have done and enjoy and share our small or big success :) so look back and congratulate yourself for all the things you have achieve! :)

So, last year 2013, I had the oportunity to work with 2 great men, Director Jesse Baldwin and the lord of the bunket Patrik Velek. They made a funny music video about some women being abducted by an extraterrestrial pop band (czech band Portless). So my contribution to this music video can be seen in the video below for about fraction of a second. I made the graphics on the spaceship screen :) And I also made a beautiful futuristic logo for the band.
I also ended up doing some bad-ass graphics trying to find out how to make graphics that may look like a slit scan technique used by Stanley Kubrick for the movie 2001: A space oddysey back in the late 60s. You can see was I ended up doing in illustrator here:

A good friend of mine is the owner of a very succesful restaurant in Prague, called Las Adelitas. Some time ago, they wanted to make a very specific restaurant where they would sell only tacos. That didnt happen, because they decided to expand and make their restaurant stronger. Very wise decision.
Their idea inspired me to do something mexican mixed with the czech language. I was imaging how would the czech culture will feel if it would be like the mexican or indian. Full of colors and textures :)

This was a wonderful project, I hope it will be a regular project soon. I have a good friend, Adam, who hires me from time to time to do what I like, isn´t it awsome? He came with this idea to make a little leaflet for kids for the brand Aeskulab in Czech Republic. It was hard at the beginning because I had no idea what to do, so I thought, maybe if I start looking around on the things I love, I may find an answer, and so... I thought about my dog, yes a very peculiar dachshund or as we say in mexico... a sausage dog. And so, it was born Dr. Párek (Párek in czech means sausage, and actually parek was the dog of my boyfriend´s ex who named him :P - la vida da muchas vueltas - )

Poster for the Forum 2000, this year the theme was Media and democracy, so I cam up with this serie of illustrations where the media replaced the faces of many leaders. This was a vry interesting topic. It took us to a very deep discussion about the real roll of the media in politics, everybody blames the "media" for whatever problem with masses exist, but the media itself is not gulty, this is only the channel. A very powerful one, that only transmits the voices of those who have access to it. In the end, those faces behind the tv are unknown till you turn on the tv, open the newspaper, etc.
