Call your mother

Happy mother’s day! Today I thought I could post this illustration, made about a year ago, in a group project for our Art Direction class. Little reminders of everyday gestures that can make us happy — have you called your mother today, wishing her a happy day and letting her now what she means to you? :)

Running shorts + Tropicana print

shorts-ilustracao

While browsing around wordpress blogs today, I found these stunning running shorts on Call Us Whatever, and couldn’t stop thinking about them! The hole running-shorts/sportive thing has been amongst us for a while, but this colorful style with the “tropicana” print gives it a new meaning! These are from Forever 21, and I made a small research and manage to find some similar (yet, not so tropicana) in other stores). I don’t why I was sooo drawn to this piece, but maybe it’s because I’m so sick of this gloomy weather and rainy days. I need sunshine, and cool new shorts.

Enquanto dava umas voltas pelos blogues do wordpress, dei de caras com estes calções de corrida no Call Us Whatever e fiquei maravilhada! A tendência de combinar peças desportivas em looks citadinos já cá anda há algum tempo, mas o padrão “tropicana” destes shorts deu-lhe um novo significado. Estes são da Forever 21 (que infelizmente ainda não existe em Portugal), e consegui encontrar também noutras lojas modelos semelhantes, apesar de não tão tropicais. Não sei porque é que fiquei tão obcecada com esta peça, mas é provavel que seja por causa do tempo miserável que temos tido! Preciso de sol, e de calções novos e lindos que combinam com o verão.

So this is what has kept me occupied lately, my first GIF for digital animation class. It looks so simple but took me forever to make it, and after all I’m not even happy with the result. I just felt like sharing it anyways, since I don’t have any other content to post right now. I was planning to make an outfit post today, but when I was about to take the pictures, I realized I was already terribly late for class!
This is the set of clothes I picked today, I hope you like it, and good to all of you who also have exams and lots of work this month!

Isto é o que me tem mantido ocupada ultimamente, o primeiro GIF para a cadeira de Animação Digital. Parece a coisa mais simples do mundo, mas demorei horas a fazê-lo, e no final de contas nem fiquei muito contente com o resultado. Mesmo assim, achei que o podia postar, à falta de conteúdo melhor… Tinha planeado fazer um outfit post, mas quando estava para ir tirar as fotografias vi que já estava terrivelmente atrasada para a aula!
Este é o conjunto que escolhi para hoje, espero que gostem, e boa sorte para quem também está cheio de exames e trabalhos para entregar!Set 1
