Titania

'Titania' by Cristina Alonso
‘Titania’

“What angel wakes me from my flowery bed?” A Midsummer Night’s Dream. William Shakespeare.

I am happy to publish what will probably be my last personal illustration of the year. 2017 has been full of professional projects that have fascinated me, but at the same time they have left me little free time to create more personal pieces. ‘Titania’ is one of the few that I have been able to make in these months, and I have a special love for her.

Journée de la Muse (Maison Close) I

Cristina Alonso for Maison Close Journée de la Muse Campaign

A sexy new work for luxe French lingerie label Maison Close!

Maison Close is organizing on April 22nd an unique event, their first Journée de la Muse (litterally: The Day of the Muse), which will be a day dedicated to celebrating women and femininity.

I absolutely loved working on this image – after all, what can be better than a gorgeous luxury lingerie set and a touch of rich red on the lips? Not to mention my soft spot for all things french (and all things vintage!).

100 Grados Magazine Cover. Theme: 'Out of Sight, Out Of Heart' ("Ojos que no ven, corazón que no siente").

The 100 Grados Team asked me to do the cover of their #12 issue (July 2015), under the theme “Ojos que no ven, corazón que no siente” (‘Out of Sight, Out of Heart’). In addition to that honor, they also asked me to do a video interview (only in Spanish version). Thanks a lot for this chance, guys, a real pleasure!
