Interview for La Moda en las Calles

Crowning Glory (Washingtonian Bride & Groom Magazine)

'Crowning Glory' (Wahingtonian Bride & Groom Magazine).

A few months ago, I was commissioned by Washingtonian Magazine to create a beautiful collection of six (6) illustrations of different floral crowns worn by brides, for the next Washingtonian Bride & Groom‘s bridal issue.

This time I had to work against the clock, since all -the documentation phase, development and completion of the six illustrations-, had to be done in just three days, due to the time frames of the printing house. I remember that I was contacted by creative director on a Friday late night, from Washington, after weeks of intense work without rest or a free weekend. I was begging for a weekend of peace, I was exhausted, but I said: it’s a challenge. You can do it!

Sometimes editorial and advertising illustration projects require a very fast workflow, and this time was quite challenging for me. But I try place high demands on myself at work and I love challenges, so… here is the result!
