Runner's World Magazine Illustration

Some weeks ago I was commissioned by Runner's World Magazine to create the cover illustration for their Fall Shoe Guide. The only three rules to create the image:

1) Include a Runner Shoe (not brand specific but definitely recognizable as a running shoe).
2) A descent-sized open area to accommodate the title and info.
3) Reference the issue's season (Fall). So after presenting a few sketch-ideas this is the final result, I'm very pleased with how came out printed!

Mexico | Imaginantes Series

So, continuing with the Mexico's Bicentennial commemorations here is an animation piece I helped out to illustrate. The piece is part of the project Imaginantes (Imaginarians), a cultural TV video segments produced by Televisa to tell short animated stories about influential people in Mexico's history, arts and literature. This particular segment is dedicated to Sergéi Eisenstein, a Russian filmmaker who produced some key projects for Mexico's film history during the first years of the 30's decade.

" Sergei Esenstein. Mexican times: The Cinema's Eye
The Russian filmmaker imagined from his childhood a placed called Mexico, this dream became an obsession. When finally got in and captured trough his camera the textures of this unknown land, his vision was so intense that filtered deeply in Mexican history imagination."

Here, some art assets I produced for the animated short:
