Hello my nerds!
Just a little announcement: my Etsy shop will be closed from October 11 till November 30 because I'll be in Chile doing some workshops, panels and book-signing!
So, if you wanna be super organized and prepared, you can start ordering your Christmas gifts today. The last chance to make a purchase before I go is on October 10th.
I know I know, I think is crazy to talk about Christmas in September too, but I figure I tell you all this right now cause I'll be gone all november (which is Christmas-crazy-time for everybody).
My store will be back on business on December 1st. My two fat cats, Ed and I will be working really hard to deliver all your Christmas goodies, even if it takes to go to the post office every day.
Another store related-news: Yesterday I upload new prints and my 2015 calendar is almost finish. Don't worry cause I'm illustrating some Christmas cards!
I think that's it! If you have questions please leave them down below or you can tweet me too!
I hope you're having an amazing (autumny) day :)

Hello my nerds! How's your Monday going so far?
Since a lot of you always ask me about my favorite places here in Berlin, I decided to start a new section on my blog called "Frannerd's Berlin Guide", so next time, if you're here visiting on a holiday with your family or friends, you know where are the nicest places for buying pencils, sketchbooks, my favorite parks or coffee shops, restaurants, and well... you get the idea.

I love Mark's music. Spazzkid cheered me up in the shittiest months of my life. It was almost a year ago, in Cologne, when Ed and I recently moved from Chile to Germany. I missed my family and friends so much.. but Mark's songs really helped me to smile and motivated me to work hard and make beautiful things.
So, thanks a lot Mark. This is how your music makes me feel.
You can check out Mark's music here and download his recent album Promise here.

A couple of days ago I asked if you guys can send me all your doubts and questions about illustration. So, instead of answer all the questions with a 50 minutes video of me just talking (boooring), I decided to answer each subjects on separate videos.
Today I'll talk about all the traditional or "analog" materials I'm currently using for my illustrations!
Stay tuned for the next video! I'll talk about the digital tools I use for my- well, digital illustration :)
I hope you are having an awesome Thursday, fat cats from here!

I know, I know: not everybody loves cats. It's hard for me to believe that, but I'm aware that some of you didn't feel so attracted to the idea to buy my chicks with cats stickers on my shop.
So I decided to make everyone happy and illustrate a new line of stickers: Chicks with dogs. I've never had a dog in my life, so this is all based on pictures or the experience of friends who have dogs.
Do you like it? I hope you do!
All the stickers, and the rest of my paper goodies, are available on my Etsy shop. Stay tuned for more!
Have an awesome Thursday! :)
