I met Las Hermanas Vampiro in Mexico City a few years ago. I was immediately captivated by their sense of style, their originality, as well as by their hospitality. I decided to work on some art projects for them. First I started with making candles and pins using their imagery, then eventually I made them the shirt pictured above. To this date one of my favorite designs.

Art and music are my two favorite things, so this year I decided to make some pins featuring acts from the Coachella Music Festival. I have been to every single Coachella, it’s one of my favorite events of the year. Actually I didn’t go to the first night of the first weekend if we want to get technical. But my idea here is to make pins that will remain as a little souvenir of the festival as time goes by.
I chose the bear you see above as my main image. I played with the size and colors. This was all done outside of the computer. I used my typewriter, a vintage image, colored paper, watercolors, a photocopier, scissors and glue. It’s very meticulous work but I love it.
I would like to start this as a yearly tradition. Next year’s pins would look different from these, and the acts would be different as well. I made a total of 56 pins, featuring 52 acts and 4 that say Coachella. I’m posting this sample for now.

I made the artwork for this mix tape over the summer. My friend Hugo from the event told me that he wanted something animalistic for the cover. Or something like that. He always tells me some of his ideas and I usually take them in another direction. I’ve always been a fan of album art, so it was a treat for me to make this for him. Text is from my typewriter, as usual.
