old painting

I'm still working on the toy story book,busy , busy , painting it now, its very exciting, so I haven't been able to find much time doing my own paintings
This is an older painting I did during my third year at Cal Arts for the character animation show, which it was sold sold after. I've been scanning most of my suff for records.

Totoro forest project

Here is my donation for an Auction for the Totoro Forest Project, It was fun to work on this one specially when is for a good cause.
We had to include our own take on a Totoro, so for me, on this painting I did the little girl looking in the reflection of the water,
seeing The little Totoros, and a big Totoro on the distance that looks like a hill of grass.

The legend of Loreley siren

So everyone asks me that my name it doesn't sound like is Spaniard at all, my parents wanted to give me a very different special name so special that they even changed the original Loreley to Lorelay.
Loreley is a rock in germany really! but is in a strong current river where there were many boat accidents, Also
Loreley is the name of one of the beautiful Rhine Maidens who lured navigators of this river to their dooms with their alluring singing, much as the ancient Greek Sirens did.

I was telling my friend Leo Matsuda the story and he suggested that I painted a illustration of it, so I did.
Thanks for the inspiration!
