This week Illustration is inspired by the  Christmas marquee at Selfridges in Oxford Street, London, I love that marquee, a time to enjoy window shopping and see the lighting on the main streets.

To give thanks in solitude is enough. Thanksgiving has wings and goes where it must go. Your prayer knows much more about it than you do.
Victor Hugo

I love Thanksgiving, is one of my favorite American Holidays, since I left the USA I haven't been able to celebrate it, the way you should, I miss  preparing and going shopping for groceries,and the countless conversations with friends and coworkers to how we're going to prepare the Turkey and the stuffing, I miss the long day of cooking and sharing and then to sit at the table,enjoy that perfect meal and most important to be Thankful...and then the best !tons of leftovers to enjoy during the weekend.
I made this Illustration to celebrate, even from faraway, always in my heart ..Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Last September I created an Illustration inspired by the Earth, Wind and Fire song, September.I love that song, it really captures for me the last days of Summer getting into the Fall.

Do you remember
the 21st night of September?
Love was changing the minds of pretender
While chasing the clouds away
Our hearts were ringingIn the key that our souls were singing.
As we danced in the night remember
how the stars stole the night away

Now I decided to create some products for my Society6  Shop, you can carry with you the essence of September

Windy Walk

O, wind, if winter comes, can spring be far behind?

Walk in The park

When was the last time you spent a quiet moment just doing nothing - just sitting and looking at the sea, or watching the wind blowing the tree limbs, or waves rippling on a pond, a flickering candle or children playing in the park?
Ralph Marston

For this week's theme for Illustration friday project I did a cat.
The theme was talent, my inspiration was a cat sleeping on a clothes string..and it requires a real talent to be sleeping on a string, something that a cat may dare to do.
I was inspired by an old photo of my cat Sara, she passed away 6 years ago, it was nice to remember her, as you can tell she was enjoying her nap the same as "the talent cat".

For the past three weeks I've started to draw Illustrations for the Illustration Friday project, is been a great exercise  each week to work on a different themes, this week's theme was whisper.
I found a picture of a dress from designer Samantha Pleet on the internet and that was the inspiration for the dress and the girl.
Then I thought of a bluebird whispering to her..
Maybe is because I'm looking forward to Spring or maybe that's has been so cold this past few days here in Barcelona, that I made this  illustration to look floral and have an eastern feel.I'm looking forward for the good weather to come, but until that happens, I'll have this Illustration.
