You can continue seeing my illustration work (blog and RSS included) in alemercado.com

Atticus.ie will be up and running shortly featuring the graphic design side of things.

I've really enjoyed posting here and your occasional comments.
Hope to see you soon in alemercado.com

Originally uploaded by Alé Mercado

Portrait for Kila's third birthday.
It is done in acrylics on canvas. I get really nervous when I have to use real brushes! (no undo function, you see?)

This is a preview of the illustrations I am developing for Koverto's marketing materials. The concept I developed is quite mad so I am really stretching my skills as much as I can... which is fun.
More to follow.
Hope you like them.

This is the flyer I've developed for the Berkeley Costume and Toy Museum. The pictures are by Axel Bernstorff (www.axelbernstorff.com www.studiorepossi.com) and they set perfectly the mood for the piece.

A few images from my latest sketchbook

Drafts from Barnstorm Play

I thought it might be interesting to show some of the drafts I developed for the illustration for the New Barnstorm production.
Once I had the structure clear in my head (and the customer gave me the go-ahead) I redrew everything from scratch in Photoshop and Painter

Here you have them.
