“Sentirse distanciado del mundo no es novedad, hacer de ello un estilo de vida, sí lo es” -Omstart

OPTION1Hello Oro Continua Friends! I know I have been “missing” the past few months, but I come with good news to all my dear readers.
If you have wondered where I have been, what I have been up to, and if I would ever post again (Insert dramatic breathing sound here) then I am here to tell you about my latest project/collaboration and info about future posts for Oro Continua.

The good news is that I am now a contributor at The WILD Magazine. I am currently helping out with fashion stories and some of their social media that requires the composition of images. I am having a lot of fun putting the stories together and adding that “oomph” to all the posts with the usual Oro Continua touch (You all know I love powerful visuals and attention-grabbing visuals!!! ). This is the reason I haven’t been able to post as often on the blog. Nonetheless, Do not fear!!!! You can definitely still follow my work at The WILD magazine, where you can hopefully get your dose of Oro Continua visuals along with great fashion stories to stay updated on the latest in the fashion world. Hopefully along the way you can also stop by and read the many other posts that The WILD has to offer. The magazine has got an awesome team of contributors that create awesome posts about art, fashion,music and current world issues. They are awesome, and I have no doubt you will love keeping up with their blog. I will keep posting on here when new personal projects begin happening throughout the year, but meanwhile it would be my honor if you followed my work at the WILD.

Thank you guys for your support!

My Video Audition for Project Runway Latin America 2013

Last year, I sent me video and portfolio, but sadly the production got pushed back until 2013. Well, A year sure feels like 5 min these days, because it is now 2013, and I’ve got new material to show ProJect Runway LA.
Hope you enjoy the video! If you go to my Youtube Channel, you can check out last year’s video if you’d like.

Today’s special is Blonde Salad a la Oro Continua

How about a good snack to kick off the week?
In this case a healthy one…

That’s right! A Little blonde salad!

I have memories of my early college days, having breakfast overlooking the mountains of Georgia, and enjoying Chiara Ferragni’s addictive blog.

Loving her clothes and SHOES. Reading all about her fashionable adventures and wishing I were her best friend haha! Who wouldn’t want to be Chiara’s BFF? LOL

So without much thought, I figured it was about time I created an illustration for Chiara. Though, the illustration needed a purpose… How about, creating a new header for her famous blog?

The Blonde Salad has had the same image as the header for quite some time now, so I decided to take care of such situation and design a new header image for the website. I guess at the end of the day, she might never read this post, or might dislike the image I created. Nonetheless, I try to keep all my dreams alive these days. I am going to wish upon a star and see if I can make this happen. Fingers crossed

Chiara, if you are reading this, it would be my honor for you to use the illustration below, as the header for your blog. It would make my (day week month) YEAR.

Hope you all enjoy!

Designing for some of my fave Youtubers

 

I have recently been fascinated by Youtubers.

I am currently subscribed to so many channels that I thoroughly enjoy watching.  It is fantastic how technology allows us to be a part of each other lives. Our world is filled with talented individuals, and YouTube has done a great job at making it accessible for us to enjoy and learn from videos made by people who willingly share their lives and their work with us.
The most wonderful part about this group of illustrations is how much one can learn by simply embracing other people’s style. It is so easy to get stuck in “what’s safe” or what’s popular in society. That is why this challenge of designing for individual’s who’s fashion has already gotten a strong style, was absolutely inspiring. It was a great learning experience to create  looks that were true to my style, but also kept the core of what makes these YouTube stars so magnificent.

I hope you enjoy the illustrations, I will leave a tag under each sketch with the YouTube channel corresponding to each person. Make sure to go and check them out! These guys are pros at what they do.
Enjoy!
