Hmm… Happy New Year? ^^U
…And Happy Christmas, Happy Halloween and many other events I’ve spent away from this site and from the world of art and creativity. Let’s say that, since my last post, my life started to change in a great number of ways and, like a tidal wave, washed away most of my routines and hobbies. However, said tsunami brought a dream boat to me so… no complains! ;) By the end of summer I finished my animation learning course, started working more hours and faced numerous challenges regarding my new home: most of them Ikea quests (boy, I love furniture building!), but also solving basic problems, moving my essential items and getting used to live on my own again. On the meanwhile, my ex-boss called me for a collaboration and I went back to online shops management on my free (*ironic* ha ha ha) time. On the last months I also had to deal with plenty of emotional changes, especially those regarding my relationship with Ari. As you know, we started really close and I love her to death… but she’s so used to my parents’ house that I feel bad when I take her with me to the new home. […]

Longer days, longest adventures!
Hi again! How are you? It took me a while but I’ve finally uploaded some animation videos I’m proud of, so I hope today’s batch can compensate the recent lack of updates ^^u. Anyway, until now June’s been filled to the brim with activities… and knowing we are about to start the Hogueras, I suspect we are going to “overclock” this month in the following weeks. Leaving aside some stressful work sprints at the office about projects I barely knew about, we’ve really started with the house renovation (there are holes in every wall!), we’ve gotten to another level in the advanced bodymechanics class (a timed parkour exercise, gosh, that was hard…), I’ve had my first bath of 2015 at the beach (<3), and I’ve taken every chance to share my time with my friends (love you, Cocoguys and Cocogals!). We even got the opportunity to directly meet the great José Manuel Linares (3D modelling god at Halo and Justin and the Knights of Valour) and Graham Gallagher (Rocket animator in Guardians of the Gallaxy!) at the Coco Day event! And our animation teacher, Ignacio Sastre, gave a great conference about creating indie games. I had a great and veeeery long day, that never really ended, but instead […]

May… May I help you?
Hi again! How’s everything? The April hiatus got a little longer than expected, and I am still busy as hell. It’s been extra rough this week since I had to face a new enemy for me: allergies (and also some Spring Asthenia). I don’t have much energy left to spare, lately, and I try to spend the little free time I have away from screens and doing some kind of exercise or, at least, enjoying the fleeting diversions of my (now, finally!) sunny city in the coast. Lately we climbed to the Santa Barbara Castle to see a Tolkien exhibition, wandered around the Medieval Market beaming at the falconery majestic birds of prey, walked the sea line and the beach after an afternoon at the cinema and spent a good time reading manga next to Ari in my house’s patio. Oh, and I guess I should also admit I am kinda hooked to Heroes of the Storm. It’s my first time in a tower game and in a cooperative one, for the record -except for a couple of months I spend trying to level up a WoW hunter character-. I’m also lucky to play with my cousins and other great friends in the […]

Waiting for the sun – short April hiatus
Hi, again! How’s everything? I spent last weekend at the Salón del Manga of Alicante, and I am still recovering from it. It was great, I got to meet plenty of good friends, bought some cool Zelda and Day of Tentacles t-shirts and got to see a brief kyuudou (Japanese archery) show. I also decided this week-end to stop postponing the end of the Dragon Age Inquisition campaing and finished the game. Now I’m sort of nostalgic and homesick, like when I end a good book. And talking about good books, I will miss Sir Terry Pratchett. A lot. He is my favourite writer and I feel an enormous connection with his characters and the way he saw life. I will always be grateful, for his words have always been a guide in the darkest times, and “no matter how fast light travels, it finds the darkness has always got there first, and is waiting for it” <3. Onto less serious matters, the new anime season has started. For now, it doesn’t look too promising. I was expecting the new Arlan Senki adaptation, but it seems my favourite Spring anime will be Owari no Seraph (Seraph of the End). I love the character design and, […]
