Papercut "Irão reforça arsenal nuclear e complica relações diplomáticas com Estados Unidos"

"Irão reforça arsenal nuclear e complica relações diplomáticas com Estados Unidos"

This is an editorial piece made for the call for entries "Sou Ilustrador". Unpublished. The only information given was a title for a potential newspaper article, about Iran´s nuclear reinforcement and how it affects its relationship with the USA. I decided to go with a papercut, a technique that I love more and more as time goes by. I love how its synthetic language forces me to convey the message in very symbolic details. Unfortunately, my work wasn´t chosen, but still I´m really happy with the result.


Papercut feito para o concurso "Sou Ilustrador", de carácter editorial. Para o concurso, apenas foi disponibilizada uma frase, o potencial título de um artigo dessa publicação: "Irão reforça arsenal nuclear e complica relações diplomáticas com Estados Unidos".

Apesar do meu trabalho não ter sido escolhido, fiquei muito satisfeita com esta ilustração.

And we´re back!

Terribly jetlagged but very happy with the time in Australia. It was full of adventures and new experiences, good food (realized Australians do a good job when it comes to fish, and this is saying something since I´m veeeeeeeeery tough to please on the fish department), koala cuddling and kangaroo feeding.

Despite the jetlag and its effects (my body takes it time to adapt itself), I feel rested and energized and will soon show some new work finished.

I´m happy to be back!


Apesar do cansaço provocado pelo jetlag, tanto para lá, como para cá, as semanas na Austrália foram maravilhosas, cheias de aventuras e novas experiências, com muitos miminhos a koalas e a cangurus. Embora cansada, estou cheia de energia para o regresso ao trabalho!

On holidays!

Passport in my hand and I´m ready to go!

I´ll be away on holidays in Australia between tomorrow and April 25th. All shop orders received during this time will be processed and shipped upon my return to Buenos Aires.

Oh, I can´t believe we´re going there, yay!


Estarei de férias entre amanhã e o dia 25 de Abril. Todas as encomendas na minha loja serão processadas e enviadas após o meu regresso a Buenos Aires.

Já falta mesmo pouco, viva!

Last Sunday I attended the painting workshop my teacher organizes once a month in his own studio. It´s a very fun workshop to attend, albeit exhausting! The mind is happy but the body is oh so sore the following days. We fortunately had a holiday yesterday, which was a great way to take a break of this very busy week, but leaving on holidays tomorrow makes everything seem more urgent.

Anyway, going back to the painting workshop, there are two models, a man and a woman, and we start painting short poses; then the poses become shorter and shorter and at a certain point there are no poses anymore: the models sing and dance and we try to capture what we want (or what we can, or what our mind allows us). It´s a stress-inducing exercice that forces surprising expressive traits to come out, since we don´t have time to let our mind play its "formatting" role it usually does. The truth about these exercices is that they are liberating and work wonders as to reduce the power of our own mind´s regulation devices.

Then we analyze everybody´s work and it feels like... well, like group therapy. It´s amazing how we learn so much from others´ works and perspectives.

Check out the rest of the work!
