Self on Flickr.

felt goodlooking and stylish this morning ;-) And I haven’t done a selfie in a while. I love my new 28mm lens, as I can finally capture a nice selfie at arms length. Still could use a longer arm though in my opinion.

I’ve been overly busy lately, all good stuff. My studio is finally almost finished, but haven’t had the time to really shoot in it yet, also because it’s quite cold in there.

I’ve also joined forces with my good friend Jeroen, who started an agency to promote artists like me. So I’m officially represented by an agent. You can find more information on the agency at www.draumlist.com

Having a promoter/agent has sped up things for me.
I’m about to have an exhibition in London next month at the Brick Lane Gallery, from March 28th through April 6th.

I’m also busy setting up an exhibition with other artist with whom I share the studio spaces.

I’m still busy doing album art, doing some fashion retouching.

And I’ve just been featured over at DIY Photography with a written photoshop tutorial

all good stuff, and hopefully more to follow. I’m great full for all this, and would also love to thank everyone here on Flickr where this wonderful journey started so many years ago.

I found and bought this mask last Saturday at www.maskshopvenice.com. I walked past their shop and just had to peek inside and I fel in love with the masks, and just had to have one.
Figuring out a good photo for it was a bit harder, but I’m very glad with the result.

Fresh on Flickr.

The weather has been just great this week, all I do is hang on our roof terrace being lazy ;-) It’s bad for my creativity, but good for my slow self. Decided to take a lazy shot, without my iPhone.

experimenting with this open skin and folds some more. I’m usually not a big fan of overusing dodge and burns, but it really helps on these images, it all feels a bit more painterly.

I’m eagerly hoping people will sign up for my workshop this week and next month. I can really really use some more people on both workshops.

went to the show and got the Tee.

Madonna ’s show was a feast for the eyes, not for my ears honestly. But a visual spectacle nonetheless
Gotta showoff a bit ;-)

Hellboy on Flickr.

Via Flickr:
When I saw this shot I just immediately thought Hellboy, so I just had to make this happen with only 28 layers of Photoshop in 2 hours time ;-)

If you would like to learn how I made this image and others do join me on my Dutch or London workshop. I still have plenty of seats available and the learning curve isn’t that steep. Anyone can join.

more details can be found on my website www.dracorubio.com “spread the word”!!

My good friend Matt designed this tshirt that I just received in the mail today. So as a good fanboy of his designs I just had to pay tribute in the right way ;-)
