Hola hola my dear friends, and Happy beginning of 2014! I am still in Gran Canaria, preparing for travelling tomorrow. I am looking forward to go back to my London base, to continue working on chocolate creative and keep enjoying life in the big smoke, but I wish I could bring with me the glorious weather form the Canaries, the beach, and my MUM.
I feel rested, I have slept the equivalent of 5 people, ate for 2, gone to the beach, enjoyed my friend's company, and the island. My most recent visit was to the amazing "Jardín Botánico Viera y Clavijo". If you ever come to Gran Canaria, I truly recommend you to visit it, my photos don't make justice to the beauty of this place, I felt like I was transported to the Dinosaurs era, species of flora I have never seen, some can only be found in the islands, a magical place, where to get inspired and rest your mind.
I am working on some new designs, and I have found my home town to be the right place for inspiration, things that have been part of my life since my childhood, like the beach, the flip-flops, the flora, etc...All I have to do now is to figure out how to translate all these new ideas, drawings and images into to a cohesive "something", in my opinion, the most difficult part of the creative process, but at the same time, the most enjoyable too. How to narrow down the blur of things I have in my mind right now, and make them into something visually attractive and commercially viable, not a tough task after all...
See you soon London!!
