Unexpected and harmonious notebook layouts

Many people say my pages are very organized. When I look at them indeed they look organized. It's not my main goal. 

This kind of layout is very useful for a page full of mixed notes. It's not too planed. Only general lines to balance the proportions, selected colors from my palette and experience with different typographies. Each idea finds its box during the process and all together create some beauty with harmony. 

Sometimes the result is a pleasure to see and not so good in other cases. Maybe the difference is in certain details because brain (better said the set brain/senses) is very picky and can notice points which we even don't know and we can't explain. Let's use the way of intuition and flow with the process.

A tree is a predictable being

 Here a few mixed notes from Da Nang (Vietnam).

Being unpredictable is a superpower. It's also useful and fun in a society where dogmas and beliefs invade most of the brains. People expect certain behavior. The real value is being unpredictable from authenticity, not acting like that (for any reason). Natural, do not force. Maybe it needs practice and training.

A tree is quite predictable and it's also ok.

Bedside lamps

I've noticed the importance of bedside lamps. In my nomadic life they appear in random ways since every hotel room is different. A kind of surprise. They are the key to create amazing atmosphere during some hours. And environment impacts in confort. Confort calms brain. Brain can produce magic. Valuable night hours then.

Tiny beings



Drawing new characters is somehow like bringing beings to life. They didn't exist a few minutes before and suddenly they are walking (and sometimes dancing) in this world. Well, in our imagination which is our real/simulated world. Only a piece of paper and a pencil needed to create magic.

These days I'm enjoying the process of drawing creatures. Actually in the last times I'm almost only interested in Science/Technology and fantasy universes. Real world on Earth is sometimes not exciting as imagination.

The Hypnotizing Planet

Year 2050. One of the rarest planets discovered up to now is The Hypnotizing Planet. It’s so beautiful and with such a charming moving that anyone who looks at it will be PARALYZED for the rest of his life. We know many astronomers suffering this effect. 

The spell also applies to machines. Computers and robots stopped working when they scanned this planet. 

Of course there are not photos and this drawing is only a basic approach from testimonies but needed in order to illustrate the Encyclopedia of the New Era.

Note: This is a drawing to illustrate the future project "The Last Days of Mankind", set in years previous to 2050 where Singularity is imminent and could happen in any moment.  

The beauty of imperfection

Many people tell me my pages are so perfect and ask what I do when I have a mistake. Nothing is perfect and micro-mistakes invade every gap.

Here I show some close up examples of scanned pages at high resolution: 



I selected some mistakes, stains, smudged ink and all kind of imperfections. I can see beauty in them. They are welcome as they are part of the process. Choosing the way of 100% perfection is a mistake. They can’t be avoid and even can bring a lot of stress if you fight against them. Nature doesn’t work like that. 

We are organisms full of defects so we will always produce the same.
