New blog header


Take a look at this. Another blogger has kindly asked me to do an illustration for a header, and I´m really pleased with the result.
It´s a lot of fun to work outside the usual books/magazines. And I discovered her blog , which I didn´t know before, so, great.

Dang, she got to you first. Lately, I've been thinking about your drawings and how good they might look on MY site.

Pille dijo...

I've been picking up courage to email you, Ximena, too (At My Table banner is absolutely amazing!!!) And I've got TWO sites in need of redesign..

Ramona dijo...

Okay! It's awesome and I'm uber-uber jealous! I love your art and can't tell you how often I'm wowed by it. Thanks for sharing your shameless promotion!

i too *love* your drawings. Since I stumbled across your blog, I have been coming back everyday to see what new drawings you have posted. I also check out your drawing blog - even though i don't understand a word of it! Beautiful!

Do you draw on paper as well? I have an empty condo that needs decorating...I tried looking on your website, but i can't get past this page) http://www.ximenamaier.com/index_eng.php

Like everyone else who has commented I think you're fantastic! As a beginning artist I'd love to know your process for creating this type of work. How do you start, and what media do you use for the end result? Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful things!

Pille: same thing, I´d love to work with you guys.
Ramona: I hope the new one will be even better...
Bea: thanks, I think she´s pretty pleased.
Husband: well, thank you for putting up with all the memememee.
Superstar: I´ve checked, and my website seems to be fine. Maybe if you try from a different navigator? And yes, I draw on paper, lots.
Traveller one: My process for that type of work is described in an earlier post I did, about Neil´s blog header.

The other stuff is just ballpoint pen and watercolour, with a bit of collage, maybe.
Christinne: take your time. But of course your friend is going to looove it!
Xps: nice
Veron: I´m so pleased. Everyone seems to be very hapy with it.
Indah: I emailed you.
Guru: ea ea. ya sabes que yo por la parte gráfica respondo mejor...no me odies.

Lisa dijo...

Beautiful work, and I think you've opened up a can of worms. You could probably make a living now off designing banners for your fans. :)

Julie dijo...

I'm looking forward to seeing your banners all over the internet. But it's a cookbook I'm really waiting for. I know you mentioned that you were illustrating one. Will it be in English?

neil dijo...

To anyone thinking about getting Ximena to design a new banner for your site - you won't regret it. Btw, I love the smoke cloud title, very clever!

Kristen dijo...

I love Veronica's banner. You did a fantastic job!

Melissa dijo...

I agree, At My Table banner is beautiful! and this one too---
Un abrazo,
M

hi all
Julie: the book will be in Spanish, but we´ll keep hoping. I do have one cookbook in english, though. Taste of Cuba, available on Amazon.

tammy dijo...

Okay, Ximena, I'm ready to talk about banners. Can't seem to contact you through your site, though. You can e-mail me at tdonroe@yahoo.com.

sandi @ the whistlestop cafe dijo...

You do such great work! I never fail to smile when I see something new~ thank you.

Grethel dijo...

Hola Ximena, me encanta tu blog, y tus diseños y el header que has creado es genial. Me gustaría agregarte a mi lista de food blogs si no te importa.
Un saludo
