This past April I drew a series of portraits of my CreativeMornings/Tijuana team members, including myself, for a fanzine we edited for our 2nd. anniversary.

Wow, it had been a long while since we’ve had a long weekend walk… more than a year, maybe even two, not counting our camping trips to Laguna Hanson. Those we still do once a year.

A couple of weekends ago we went hiking to Cerro Bola, in Valle de las Palmas. Everything was so green and starting to bloom, the weather was perfect, and even though we are so out of shape and didn’t get to the top, we had a great time and a good exercise. We’re going back soon, with a couple of rolls of film, and hopefully we’ll get to the top.

The flowers are starting to bloom. We went hiking last weekend and, because of the recent rains, the hills were green and everything was starting to bloom and show color.
I really missed going for long walks away from the city and the noise. Clear sky, green view, good company.

Don’t know if you know that i love to bake [and eat] bread. A few years ago, I got myself the Bread Baker’s Apprentice book and ever since i’ve been baking my own bread. I now am more confident and experiment a lot more, but every once in a while i get lazy and buy bread or bake a no knead bread which is a basic dough that you really don’t knead and the fermentation’s is quite fast. A friend of mine once shared with me this recipe for a no knead beer bread and it’s one of my favorite bread to make in an afternoon. It has a delicious taste and texture.

Today was one of those days that i wanted a loaf of bread bit didn’t want to wait the 2 days of the process, and I took the opportunity to share and teach my son to make this easy yummy bread. So, he was actually in charge of 80% of the making-of-the-bread process. Not so great photos but it’s night and i couldn’t wait :D

I got my ticket that same day.
It was such a great great great show!! Small venue, like 100 people max, great sound, great setlist, I went alone so i couldn’t share it with anyone but i still enjoyed it so much.

I am very excited to share that this year my friend Fax, a.k.a. Rubén A. Tamayo, released his latest album “Constellation“, and I got to make a special piece for the cover artwork!!!!! :D :D

Not only is the album amazing, the concept he had in mind while working on it and recording the tracks is so in tune (pun intended haha) with the concept of my latest project “Diagram” that it was a perfect match. I am so proud to be part of this. Here’s the album, take a listen and you’ll love it. It’s been on repeat in my home lately.
