A quick gif inspired by a movie and since the movie, Roma by Alfonso Cuaron came out I’m kind of being obsessed with it and I thought this exercise was a good excuse to do something about with it and close …

Today is the first the day of a series of simple motion graphics. The purpose of this content is one, to keep the creative muscle active and two, to learn and practice skills of applications I want to keep working within the future.

20-of-20-one-day-at-a-time

Do not give up.

20 days after, 20 posters, during this time I was able to explore applications tools that I was not familiar with. I was able to accomplish what I had in mind but it did take quite the time to research how to do it.

_hi_2019

It took me a couple days to decide whether to hit the skip button for this year’s recap but it felt somewhat important for my future mental health to do it so when I feel melancholic about time going to fast I can have a quick peek to this post and realize that this past year did not suck as much as I thought but …

Rosalía “El mal querer”

Still cannot believe it took me this long to run into this gorgeous Album. El Mal Querer, from the Spanish artist Rosalía, rooted in Flamenco, each song is a chapter of an intense, dramatic and romantic love story. The Art involving the music is power, it shows how much work and thought went producing such a project. Try to watch the visuals only once, I dare you …
