Bye bye Vigo!

July 30, 2011

Yesterday was my last day at work! Woohou! Which means, I’m leaving Vigo soon! : ) To celebrate that special day, we went out for drinks with the girls at the office. They did a really special card for me, and my present was a scarf I was dying to get from Bimba & Lola winter’11-12 collection! One of the first scarves I designed : ).  The card is so cute, Jasmine can actually move from Vigo to Beirut! Each one left a small message on the map as a souvenir. So cute, I love it! Thank you Alba!!!!

Sara, my colleague at work and my best friend in Vigo, gave me a really special gift. A print of her first etching. It’s so lovely. I love her so much.

The adventures of Aladina in the country where the sun never shines!

This is not acceptable, I will complain! This never happens in Beirut! Me complaining about every single thing in Vigo! haha

"Tu dices negro, yo digo blanco" is a Spanish song, that we used to laugh about.

Jasmine flying with the carpet, going towards Beirut!

Gesture – Illustration Friday

July 17, 2011

My submission for this week’s topic “Gesture”. I drew two squirrels in a bush, falling in love. I love the small flowers in the back.

My animals bracelets made it to the Thyssen!

My bracelet collection is finally exposed at the Thyssen shop! I’m so excited. I went yesterday to take some photos. Take a look! I did them in Beirut (the gold plated pendants) and I assembled them in Spain: ) I got all the material with me from Beirut, and I spent some days assembling them in my small studio in Vigo. I did 5 animal motifs: an elephant, a turtle, a turkey, an owl and a hedgehog inspired from the painting: ” Adam and Eve in the garden of eden” by Jan Brueghel, part of the permanent collection painting of the Thyssen Museum in Madrid. I did the braided bracelets from colored threads and attached the animals to them. The pendants are sold individually, and since the bracelet is a braid, it’s easy to hang the pendant anywhere you want. Enjoy!
