Last february we had the second Illustration and Painting Workshop here, in Mexico City.

I invited two visual artists Vena2 and Diana Quintero that gave very interesting lectures and practical lessons. After a long and intense weekend, where the theme was to focus on creating a collective thought and to develop this thought into reality, the magic happened.

The object of the workshop was to open up our creative side, with a concept to stand on. It was very interesting to see how each different personality ends up merging with the whole group, creating an original and intelectual vibe that can only push you to surpass your creative limits.

Here are the members of the group:

Paco

Naiki

Diana Quintero

Pablo

Vena2

Dany

Montse

Andrea

Poncho

Cynthia

Paola

Lian

Martin

Domineta


and myself.

On Friday, we started warming up and then we painted with acrylics. Some, had never painted before, and big surprises came out!

On Saturday, we had theoretical introduction to the working progress of Diana and Vena2, and then we did collage based on that method.

The catering was in chargo of Flor de Rio

On Sunday we did live model drawing and we continued painting the mural we started during the first workshop.

The third illustration and painting workshop will focus on textile and fashion design, combined with drawing and sketching.
