Featured! (and a short story)

Journal Entry: Fri Dec 18, 2015, 12:19 PM
Featured on Advanced Photoshop (issue 134) and Photoshop Creative (issue 129 and 130)


Features by Carlos-Quevedo


These features have a very special meaning because my story with digital art begun with the magazine Arte y Diseño which is kind of the spanish version of Advanced Photoshop. The story begins when I was doing my internship of graphic design back in 2009 and one day during my work I found out the issue 102 of Arte y Diseño on a shelf in the lobby of the agency. I was fascinated on what I saw on that magazine, was the first time I saw the incredible work of Alexander Jansson and Martin Lisec (two of my gods, amen), then I asked my boss if I could keep the magazine (I still have the issue) and he said yes (his worst mistake because some time later I quit the job to start working as a freelance artist moved by what I saw on that magazine :D) and I spent hours that night reading about those artists, their technique, use of Photoshop, projects and  I was so inspired by them and I said: “I want this, I want to be a graphic designer to work like this”. On that time I had some attempts on digital art but nothing was the same after I read about those artists. I did know about this kind of art in that time, about digital artists and designers, and I had some pieces but they were just for fun; Working like them and make a living from it was like something utopic for me then, and I have to recall that when I started studying graphic design it was a very new career on my country we, the students, were always afraid about our job opportunities, creative careers were understimated here and sadly they still are. So that’s why being featured on these magazines is so meaningful for me, it means I’m going in the right way.

A thought on recent terrorism

Journal Entry: Sat Nov 14, 2015, 6:56 AM

It's really awful and regrettable what happened in Paris, an event that clearly shook the world, and right on this point, last night, when I was watching how every news portal, facebook and twitter were filled by the news, I could not help to compare a bit this facts with those occurred a few months ago at the University of Garissa in Kenya, where they were killed more than 140 people, mostly students; It was an event I followed closely where I noticed an incredibly low global coverage,  There weren't global trends on twitter, no #prayforkenya or buildings illuminated with the flag of Kenya. There wasn't mourning. That makes me wonder, Are we so different? Does it have less value the life of all those african students?






All my condolences for the people of France.

Massive theft of art

Journal Entry: Fri May 1, 2015, 10:37 AM

This is to inform that I found this guy who make his video tutorials and arts cutting off parts of our artworks to make his own. I'm so pissed off for this! I talked to him by facebook and he said that he has his own copyright, he doesn't want to delete the content, so I proceeded to report a couple of his videos on Youtube, but I saw many artworks there that I've seen here on DA, so below are the links of his channel and his facebook pages (where he posted lots of edited artworks) Check this out, maybe your artwork is there too.
