"Suspects" by Marc Torices

I've been drawn by Marc Torices! On friday opened doors Marc Torices exhibition at Fatbottom Books, here is a copy+paste about:

Sospechosos (Suspects)

Marc Torices
Fri, 2012-12-14 19:30 - 22:00
This exhibition is a collection of portraits by Marc Torices. The portraits are anonymous. Made with ink, black and white, and a size of 10x14 cm.
Marc Torices is one of the many suitors in Barcelona to enter the world of comics and illustration work in Spain. This exhibition is intended to affect in any way the visitors and convince them that these faces are what they need to maintain their spiritual balance. Actually he doesn't even know why he has been drawing compulsively so many faces. It seems ridiculous to him and he just hopes that someone have compassion for him. All 100 portraits are original, signed and framed. And they're all on sale from 30 €

New zines on Booklet Library & Press

Our japan friends have recieved our latest zines (from Bad Weather Press) and one of them was the one I did with Leonardo Amico this year: Food Chain. Have a look here.

The death of Maslow

Yesterday I recieve a pack from Belgium, the last Lazer Artzine (nº19-20) and a mini-book/flyer from the exhibition in Cultures Maison. All really nice stuff, thanks Chanic!

Here is my page, on the left and Alain Marciano’s one on the right.
I titled the comic "the death of Maslow" and tried to represent the end of the world after the physiological level. Here the Maslow's hierarchy of needs.

Another exhibition I can’t assist. Sad, very sad. It was at the Médiathèque Margarite Duras in Paris (France). The exhibition was free to all public and had really a amazing collection of stuff from around the world. On the web says, the zine will go to the library, so, now you have a nice opportunity to go there and have a look!

Lazer Artzine: exhibition in Brussels

This days I have been a bit busy, and I forget to tell you there was a fantastic exhibition curated by Nicolas Chalupa aka Mr.Chanic at the Maison des cultures de Saint-Gilles, in Brussels. In the exhibition, during the days 14, 15 and 16 of September, you were able to see the originals (the ink version in my case)  published in the last number of Lazer Artzine.

Sunday Books #1

This past weekend (13 and 14 October), “Lands Speak Record” my latest photozine published by Bad Weather Press, was at “Sunday Books #1” in Shibuya, Japan. I copy and paste the info from Booklet’s website:
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

SUNDAY BOOKS is an event that gathers zines selected by three (zine-related) organizations that have been separately active in Tokyo: Mount Zine, Zine Picnic, and Booklet Library. It is the first collaborative exhibition between the three.

There will be an opening party for the event on the 13th. Sunday Issue requests a ¥500 cover (+100 for a beer); in lieu of the fee, we'll prepare some (FREE) party favors in booklet format.


Mount Zine is a distributor of small-press publications by Japanese authors based in Tokyo, Japan.

Zine Picnic (just that! trees, sunshine, grass, biru, chu-hi, onigiri v. zines) was founded by Kohei Oyama. He publishes and distributes the work of young photographers as parapera.

Booklet Library is the website you're surfing. Booklet's selection for Sunday Books will address recent repeaters.

Ryuto Miyake, the organizer of the event, works at Sunday Issue. He likes to draw--birds, specifically.

Food Chain: Leonardo Amico & Pere Saguer

This is the result of working together with Leonardo Amico. For a year we have been exchanging sounds, noises and musical pieces that have the combined result of a piece of music and graphics.

"Food Chain" is published by Bad Weather Press with a limited print run of 40 numbered copies. It has a ridiculous price of 6 euros you can get here.
If you are interested in knowing the work of Leonardo, here is his blog.

Sea Bridge on Sandwich Mixto

A recent post in No.Zines website, talks about Sandwich Mixto located in the Antón Martin market (Madrid) and reminded me they have one of my favourite photozines: Sea Bridge*. So if this summer you go to visit the capital of Spain, don't miss this place!

Here the facebook page.

(*)"Sea Bridge" is sold out in the Badweather Press web, so probably they are the last copies, a known treasure!

Are You?

Yesterday I re-scaned a old collage zine I made for a exhibition (that, at the end, didn't took place...). Here are some samples.


I made this cover for Leonardo Amico's music project. You can listen the music here, published at Pan y Rosa website. Hope I can also upload soon a nearly-finished project with Leo and Bad Weather Press. Maybe before August? ;)
