Old England




This is a little ink drawing I made within a series of drawings called "women and fans" for an group exhibition on the subject of fans in the Volubilis Art Gallery in Tangier. Although I decided not to exhibit it because, due to a certain uniqueness, it did not fit in either of the two triptychs I was showing.
It shows a Moroccan woman with a fan and a Chanel logo on her breast. The original is for sale now here.

La Cocina de América Latina!


My cookbook is out!




























This is my cookbook La Cocina de America Latina. I made it after studying in Chile and travelling around in some countries of South America, and it's a colorful and very personal collection with delicious recipes I tried down there, lots of drawings of whatever crossed my way, and stories that happened throughout my journey. It's about indian girls not knowing what to do with tictacs, german bakeries in the paraguayan nowhere, bolivian busdrivers that get hungry in the middle of the road and tells why the most popular drink in chile is named after a colt.

A story about the magical & colorful carnival in Potosí, one of the highest towns in the world, known in the past for its immense wealth thanks to its silver mines.























   







Eucalipto – a story about a strange incident of passing a branch of eucalyptus from one person to another in Cuzco, Peru.

































This is a recipe for Suspiro Limeño, a delicious peruvian dessert made of caramel. Its name means "Lima's sigh" and was named so by the husband of the creator of the recipe, the poet José Galvez, because it is as sweet and light as the sigh of a woman.
