The moment arrived! after 2 years wroking on it the book is printed!. Actually I printed it last december but I was delivering first the copies to the people taht participated in the Crowdfunding campaign. The campaign was amazing! I had pre/orders from 33 different countries from around the world and I was shipping 300 copies of my first book. Maybe it doesn’t sound a lot for you but for me without a publisher it was a lot, so I want to say thanks to all the people that participated on it.
Since most of the packages arrived to their destinations I want to share with you some pictures I’ve got from the crowdfunders.
And the best news the book is now available for everybody! I’ve made a small shop on Tictail that you can use to order your own copy. The book is limited to 300 copies and you can order a “signed” version with your name on it.
If you have any special request please don´t hesitate to contact me!
Hello everybody! it´s been long time since my last post, I´m sorry for that! But I´m back in town and posting again for 2015. The first post of 2015 is about an amazing project I was part of in Barcelona. One of my artist friend from Berlin Matt Jones (aka Lunartik) asked me to organize with him a painting session at a guesthouse in Barcelona called ZooLoco. The owner, Steve asked us if we like paint some of its rooms and also invite some artists friends living in Barcelona… and we did it! We invited Niels de Jong, Amaia Arrazola, Reskate Arts & Crafts & Bandid8.

It was soooooo cool! I hope we can repeat it soon!
And thanks to Steve for the cool time at ZooLoco.
Yihaaa!! WE DID IT!
We reached the goal over 117% and we got 174 contributions from 33 countries around the world! Now it’s my duty to make the best book I can create and ship to you as soon as possible! My plan is to have it till the end of this October, I will keep you updated via Indiegogo mail service. I will also recheck all the addresses before sending the Books, just in case.

Hello my readers,
First of all I want to thank you again for following my adventures around the world. Without you this blog would be not the same as it is and you are the motivation i have for keep traveling and drawing. This time I have a big announcement to make, I´m starting the crowdfunding campaing for the book about my travels in Asia! This book is the result of the first travel I did in Asia that was the starting point for this blog. the link for the campaign the campaign on indiegogo.
If you remember I was traveling 6 months in Asia meeting local artist and drawing my adventures along the way and after coming back I started to put my ideas together and after 2 years in the making I finished a comic book, my first comic book!

I met Cagri (designer on the road), a world traveler from Turkey, last year in Berlin. Since then we kept the contact and when I was ready to visit Istanbul he invited me to have a talk about my drawing-travels with his students at the Kadir Has university. It was fun to meet them! here some pictures of that day. Thanks to Cagri for the invitation.
I love lists, yes, and mostly if they are about exciting destinations I want to visit one day. And one of this destinations on my list is Istanbul and i made the “check” last week. I was spending 7 days in this vibrant city. One of the most amazing things about Istanbul first you are in Europe and 15 minutes later you are in Asia or better said Middle east. That situation makes this city a “must” for every curious traveller. Here some of my favourites moments about food, drawing, university visit and more. Teşekkürler Istanbul!
Eminönü (The Old part)
First thing you will do is visit the old part where all the tourist attractions are located, we were staying on the other side of the Galata bridge in the neighbourhood called Beyoğlu and it was very easy to cross by walk and visit many Mosques, markets and restaurant/street food.
Sultan Ahmed (blue mosque): Called this way because of the blue tiles adorning the walls of its interior.
Hagia Sofia: it was first a church and now it´s a Mosque from outside, it is beautiful inside.
Yeni Cami (New Mosque): It is the first mosque you will see from the galata bridge and you have to go inside, it has so many details on it walls.
Grand Bazaar: It´s very nice to see from inside but the offering are mostly gold objects and things you can find in other stores too.
Eminönü Market (Spices Market) : This one was my favourite much better and nicer then the Grand Bazaar to buy and try things. Avoid it on weekends if you don´t want to bu stuck in the crowd.
Don´t miss the Harem inside the Palace, it´s wonderful
