The Last of the works consigned to oblivion

The ultimate post of the series entitled 'Works consigned to oblivion'. A sheer sense of relief is soothing me as I become aware of my having finished all the illustrations I had under way since the beginning of 2011. From now on I can think about new projects, without having to bear in mind some tormenting forgotten works that are still unfinished. What a bliss to be rid of that burden - it prevents me from creating as I always have to catch up with past works. At the moment, I am making some sketches for a new illustration that will involve a wild horse, an old pram, and the town of Krakow (Poland). I am tingling with impatience to draw something new. Loads of ideas swarm over my head, but there is a latent frustration lurking behind me; I am no more on holiday, I also have to deal with my studies - though very interesting, but sucking up all my spare time outside the university.

A day in Gent


Cloudburst. Deluge. Downpour. Drizzle. Fall. Precipitation. Raindrops. Rainfall. Showers. Rain. Every time I go to Belgium, it is raining. Sadly for Zeus, it did not dishearten me as I am a lover of rain - peculiarly when the clouds are gloomy, and the sunlight pierces through them. Gent is far bigger than I imagined it, far bigger than Bruges; I must say that it is a piece of cake to loose one's way in its streets. Eventually I caught a cold, but I am so very glad I have visited that wonderful town! Bruges and Gent must be an enchantment at Christmas.

Have a card.

Indeed I am. Indeed, 'pertinacious' is the word to describe my vain endeavour to get rid of all of my old cards series, before the release of a new series - have the strange feeling I am drivelling. To show you how desperate I am, I am offering a 30% discount on etsy, until October 18th 2012. The promo code is : RIDOCT201230

Let's imagine for a moment that you have the ineffable desire to buy five cards in a row, know that there would be no shipping costs - just let me know before the purchase.

Works consigned to oblivion II

Asking for the Moon is an illustration I would like to dedicate to a dear friend of mine, Ana Luisa Vale - thank you so very much for encouraging me to keep on drawing, and not to give up.

Works consigned to oblivion I

This month I will post the illustrations that I started in 2011, and completely forgot to finish at the time. The first one I want to show you is Super Petit Coq, in full colour.

Logo signature, what a torment!

logo signature

I have been working lately on new business cards and greeting cards to print out. I wanted to change the picture behind the greeting cards, and put instead a beautiful logo signature made by myself - one that I would be proud of showing off. I started off that project last June, and after months and months of sheer nightmare and boredom, I eventually made it! The one, the one and only! As I do not want all the work done behind that small trifling logo be a mere waste, this post is somewhat a heaven-sent opportunity to display it, and show that it had been an arduous undertaking to create that logo signature - I will not do it again. I sincerely hope you will like it, as I am truly weary of making another one.

The sidebar's new dwellers

Here they are! It can be finally settled that the new blog's design is once and for all finished. A couple of months ago, the sidebar - where all the links are displayed - had changed its clothes; today, I would like you to meet the new dwellers. The 'twitter bird' button and the 'copyright bird-eater' button have been changed, and I like them better this way!
