Happy news, and new year!

So this year ends with awesome news, two of my pieces were selected in the 2013 Society of Illustrators LA show. Thanks to SILA juries and Scad for this chance! One of the pieces I never published so here’s a new piece for y’all,  I did a portrait for a fictional Sports Illustrated Cover.  The main subject was the 2012 London Olympics and since Colombia did so good this year I decided to pay a little homage to Catherine Ibargüen, one of our winners!

This is a great ending but also a great beginning!
Happy new year everyone!

And stay tuned! Diegoillustration will be back soon with new stuff!

“Painting is a humbling experience” said great teacher and artist Larry Anderson.  He knows what he’s talking about.  A while ago I decided to start doing light studies as often as possible, and I will keep my promise. Brief weekend studies. It’s incredible how the most “basic” stuff can be so challenging.  I’ll be persistent…

It's been quite busy lately and I haven't had enough time to work on new projects.  The good thing is I'm getting everything back together so I'll be back on track soon. For now, some figure sketches.
