Hello December!!

Time sure does fly! And with December comes one of my favorite holidays: Christmas!

Today I went to the FIL (International Book Fair) here in Guadalajara. It is the largest in all of Latin America and this year's guest country was Germany! There was an exhibition of works from German illustrators of Children's books which I took pictures of. They were so beautiful and I loved the style. Aside from that, I was finally able to buy The Hunger Games book in English :)

Here are some pictures,

Coming soon..

Hey!! I am working on updating this blog's design a little bit and also make it a bit more open. Sometimes I want to share thoughts, photography, comment on other artists etc. I will still be uploading my artwork here (I know I haven't updated in a while..sorry!!) but if you ONLY care to see my artwork then you can visit my website:

I think this blog will provide a good opportunity to share more about me so my readers (if there is anyone out there...) will get to know Andrea the artist, the person, the girl...and not just see cute illustrations without knowing who I am at all!

I am excited about this so I hope you are too!



I heard this song this morning and wanted to share it :) Sometimes it takes a song, a moment, a movie...anything to get you inspired and get your life moving. Yesterday was Thanksgiving and I wanted to say how grateful I am for the people in my life and all the friends who love me and are always there for me. Life is a beautiful thing and God is wonderful.

Serenity Prayer

No explanation is needed for this, it's simply something I feel and pray for everyday :)

On a happier note, my first card designs are now up on the website! You can search my name "andrea rodriguez" and see my designs. Or just click on the link below :P
So far there are two holiday season cards ad I hope there will me more in time :)

Ice Creammm

I originally thought about doing this design as a personal piece but then I decided to use it to enter Delias graphic tee contest. Hopefully my design will get chosen but if not, I'm still happy with the way it turned out! :)

Pattern Fun

I was playing today with Illustrator and trying to just "doodle" some patterns out so I can practice florals and here's two I came up with. The first one is more festive and I had in mind a party theme and thought this pattern would look good on a tablecloth/cups/party hats, etc and the second one is more for a dress or tablecloth as well. There will be more to come!

Memory Game Cover Revised

February 9, 2011


This was for my Synergism class and the assignment was to come up with a fearsome creature!! So I drew a lick-a-bird that rearranges children's faces. There's some color/value problems that I need to fix after critique but this one was lots of fun!

Memory Game Cover

This is something fun I've been working on for my Adv Computer Illustration class and I chose to go with a simple Memory game for kids :)
