FRANNERD'S BERLIN GUIDE: FRECKLES HEAVEN







































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.

HEY MARK!



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.

PAPER, PENCILS AND WATERCOLORS



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!

CHICK WITH DOGS!






























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! :)

When I started this project I decided to film this whole process. The result? This short video showing you the behind the scenes of how I illustrated and crafted my travel journal "Perfect Tree Shapes". I hope you like it!

You can buy Perfect Tree Shapes in my Etsy Shop; you can choose the english or spanish version. Worldwide shipping! :)

Have a nice Monday!

FOLDING PAPER, COFFEE BEANS AND LITTLE BASKETS







































Lovely things on June :)

1. Ecoline
I don't know why, but usually when I have the chance to buy Ecoline's watercolors, I always choose very "safe colors". Like sepia, or dark reds for outlining my illustrations. But this time, an amazing vibrant pink caught my attention. It's the Ecoline in Pastel Rose 390: vibrant in its pure solution, but if you add some water, a beautiful soft pink will came out. Amazing and marvelous: I use it daily.
