Microcosmos web store opening

Finally, the store is live! After a month and a half of hard work, we can open our online store.

When we create our online store, one of our goals had been to try to make the purchase process in a quick and easy way and also to give special importance to links to utilities (shipping cost, help, FAQ) that we think might be useful to many users.

We invite you to give it a look. We hope you like the new goods.

New Private Collection

Private collection consists of a series of illustrations that explain how we relate to our own image when we see ourselves in mirrors in our private spaces. The space around us complements the image we see of ourselves and add more meaning to the artwork. They are personal moments that everyone faces differently: with indifference, fun, attention, frustration, etc..

Microcosmos Store – Coming soon

Unfortunately we haven’t been able to open our store yet because of amount of work we’ve going on. I’s been difficult to find the time to get everything ready but it is coming together. This week we’re finishing testing, solving some problems and reviewing and writing last texts.

15 x 20 Collection

15 x 20 is one of the best known and standard measures used in the world of the printed picture. This was the starting point for our project: use this format to draw portraits in small format quickly. The view is always front and looking at viewer, as if the characters pose for the camera.

The base is always someone real: people we’ve met on the street, seen on TV or in a magazine, friends, etc.. The result is an extensive collection of illustrations that are a sample of the variety and richness that surrounds us.
