Manu Chao Posters

These are some posters i designed for the Spanish/French Artist Manu Chao i wanted to put a piece in my Portfolio that was in Spanish. The reason I chose this artist, is not only the fact that i love his music but also because i thought it would demonstrate my versatility in design since most of my work isn't this colorful.

So help me pick the one i should put in my Portfolio! :)

here go ahead and check out his website!

Website Remodeled

last night i got the urge to totally remodel my pg.. i just wasn't satisfied i wanted a m0re simple version and less girlie :) i also wanted it to appeal to a magazine employer so i experimented with the typography and let that be a major part of the design :)

so here are the results tell me what you think??

i still need to do some changes on the portfolio pg. but my comp is too slow to let me so i guess i'll do it tomorrow at school. bye!!

so here's a font i made for my advanced type class. i got really frustrated with it and made another one for the second half of the class...which is why it's incomplete. Unfortunately, my second font didn't come out as good so I regretted my choice, I'll try to make the lower case so its complete and ill post them up later for you to see ♥

any suggestions on the name for this font??? oh and feel free to critique this font since its not yet completed, & if it helps... i created the rest of the letters based on the letter b ;)

'04 This is my favorite of the photographs I've ever taken. This one is actually a slide, which is why the quality of the scan is so bad. i took lots of other cool photos in the dark, including one of the 405 fwy i will post more of these slides once i get access to a better scanner ♥

Santa Ana

intersection of Santa Ana Blvd. & Bristol

Main St.

'05 I've decided taking photos of my surroundings is pretty are some photos i took of the city i grew up in. With these I was trying to capture the beauty of what others would see as the least favorable areas of Santa Ana. I was also trying to capture the Latino culture i grew up in. I made color modifications to give these a vintage look and in this way make them seem somewhat nostalgic.

2nd LOOK

Mile Square Park - Fountain Valley

Freight Yard - Santa Ana

'04 this was the 1st time i ever got my hands on an SLR

Still LIFE

'04 this is an interpritation of a current photo by this one famous photographer i cant recall his name at the moment. but yea i think i did a pretty good job for not using a lighting kit, i did however use my desklamp :) haha

Watercolored Essence

Watercolor '02

I did this in high school. I like depicting roses. I like to referense roses to my last name. My last name is Spanish and it translates as a description of something that has a lot of thorns...e.i. roses.

Anywho, the image is actually bigger i just couldnt scan the whole thing and i lost my camera recently so i guess you have to settle for this..

My GD Site is up

YES my site is up but im still working on it... half of my work is in the process of being photographed or updated. However, if u want to give some suggestions to make it better or critique whatever work i may have on it let me hear it!!! ♥

...for those who don't know MYE are my intials so no it's not supposed to be read "MY" ;)


So i decided this is going to be my Graphic Design logo. It's girly yet urban, i think that's the best way to describe me. Can you tell its supposed to be one of those custom name pendants popular in the 90's?? props or no props?

Child Prostitution

Illustrator '06
This is a poster i made to bring awareness about child prostitution; A very real problem, which i beleive gets little attention...if any.

the second 2 apply to child abuse more than they do to child prostitution in specific.

Designing your Future
