I'd love to spend a day in your imagination. Very fun stuff, and so original.

Tan bello! Me encanta toda las texturas: blue jean, papel kraft, nuez - madera, utensilios...
Ustedes son geniales, fabuloso!
Saludos alos dos: Juan y Joaquin :)

Wonderful-- the walnut boat, the pencil mast, the Phoenician eye on the lunch bag sail! It's like the adventure of a little boy daydreaming in school...

Hi there - thank you for your comment on my blog. I really admire your work, I was very proud to receive a compliment from you :))

Edward Pun said...

The textures and all the visual elements comes together very nicely.

Bella Sinclair said...

Juan, I challenge you to make something that's NOT spectacular! This is incredible. I really love the paper bag sail! The symbols -- do they mean something? And your undulating sea makes me really feel the up and down motion. Excellent.

Paulina Lombardo said...

No podia no dejarte un mensajito aqui....es que me enamore de este trabajo, esta muy bonito y me recordo a que de niña muchas veces hice botes con cascaras de nueces y les ponia palitos de fosforo con plasticina como vela de navegación.....

Ha sido bonito recordarlo, gracias por mostrar cosas tan creativas y que a mi regalaron un momento de nostalgia.

Besos, Pau.
