Photography: Sabrina Claudio

Before we were all kicked out of Randall’s Island on Friday due to “severe weather conditions’ that never happened. Don’t remind me on how upset I was…. Sabrina Claudio was performing. I was so in love with my camera and the way I caught her sultry look. Her voice is something else, and I absolutely love how these images came out.

Ps. This was my face when I heard the announcement that they cancelled the festival:

Illustration: Working On My Fitness

  It seems like most of my feed on my instagram is all about fitness at the moment. A lot of his to do with the fact that I went a following spree ever since I started to work out. Yes, you read that right. It’s been a long month, but I’m so happy I decided to take care of myself a little bit better.
I know I have some extra weight on me, but I honestly couldn’t care less. I wanted to better my health and for me to do that, I need to focus on making better choices. Plus all the extra endorphins has left me in such a great mood lately! Talk about win-win.
My dad is the perfect workout partner, we meet up after work do our best to keep each other motivated. We have the cutest little routine when it comes to working on our abs (or lack thereof) .
I drew this illustration in honor of this new chapter in my life. Though my butt looks nothing close to that (gooooals) Here’s to hoping it’s not just a stage, but a lifestyle change. Wish me luck guys….

and yes, after 25 squats, I walk away wobbling like bambi.

Had a little fun in Chinatown with fashion blogger  Stefanie Katja . I love when my models are wearing bright clothing, and red in Chinatown is a beautiful match made in heaven!

Illustration: Rosas De Michi

 I absolutely love when I get fun and quirky commissions. Michellle wanted me to capture her on a unicorn float. It was such a fun concept that reminded me of an older illustration I did, see that HERE. I knew I had to give it a different spin.
Michelle is such a vibrant person and adding different shades of pink and browns like mauve and taupe and make it pop with hints of  magenta and fuchsia.  The color combo is something I definitely have to try again.

As the unofficial photographer of the family, I’m always ready to get behind the camera to capture the moments that matter. If I can do this for everyone else, why should my own family have to deal with crappy cell phone pictures ( I secretly hate those).
My brother Luis and girlfriend Jen are expecting, and only being 5 months in, I wanted to be able to remember the middle stages of the pregnancy. That way when she’s really showing, we can have round two and compare.
During our Father’s Day barbecue (you can read that post HERE) I told the couple to take a quick walk with me. They really weren’t expecting this happen today, so It’s not like there was any time to prepare. This session lasted about 12 minutes and because we didn’t want to be away for too long and leave the food on the grill waiting for us, we hurried back. For such a quick walk, I think we did pretty damn well!
Looking forward to session number 2, with a bigger belly,

Illustration: Pero Like it’s Curly for Pride

I was in the mood to try something different, and boy did that work out in my favor. When Buzzfeed’s Curly, posted up this image on his instagram, I just knew I had to draw it– and right on time for Pride!
Not only is he extremely charismatic, but a looker too! I wanted this drawing to express how vibrant his personality is. I added a lot of pink and blue tones to the lighting, and even debated if i should, but I just had to go with my gut. I absolutely love this piece and can’t wait to keep trying some new things!
Best,

Someone’s graduating in 4 days and I couldn’t be prouder!
He’s too cool to get excited and keeps shrugging it off, but that’s alright because I’m ecstatic for him.
My baby brother is semi- adulting right now, and I’m so blessed to have such a responsible and charasmatic young adult around me. Not many get to walk across that stage, let alone get a full scholarship to their top choice college.    You’re going places baby, make us proud!

Photography: Ivana Noble

Another successful session, this time with the lovely Ivana Noble.
She did absolutely great, and this shoot hit a new record for me, as it being the quickest and most effortless partnership to date. We met up, Ivana didn’t need much direction, and 30 minutes later turned to “it was so nice working with you” and “goodbye’.
Talk about getting the job done right.
Here’s to hoping I have more productive opportunities like this,
Best,

Illustration: Taza, Twins & a Clementine


Bloggers, there are everywhere. When you’re one yourself, you tend to gravitate to other bloggers, and they somehow become like your virtual little family—in a non creepy way of course.
One of the many personalities that I tend to follow on instagram is Taza from lovetaza.com. She’s about to burst out twins, and when I saw this most adorable picture of her eating fruit, I picked up my apple pencil and got to work.
This is only the second time I’ve drawn a pregnant woman, (see the first HERE) and I gotta say, I don’t hate it. Maybe I should start a series. (We’ll see, because I may just be brainstorming out loud here)
I love the colors I used, purple just always seems to sneak into my work somehow, how do you always do that purple?
   I hope you guys like this illustration, and if you’re curious enough, she recently gave birth to two healthy girls, you can read that post HERE.
Best,
