Apartment Number $ - The Shaman. (2006)
from Simonwilchesc on Vimeo.

In 2005 I started developing my graduation project. It was a
15min animated short consisting of 4 pieces in different techniques.

At the time; there were many things I did not know, could not do,
or never took into account while developing the project.

I decided, for many reasons, to give it a second look and try to fix
some of the technical shortcomings of the piece. I have been working
on it the past two months. This is sort of the result:

I am pretty satisfied with the results. They are not perfect by any
means, however these show some of the skills I have come to
learn these past years. 

MORAL: Never be absolutely satisfied with anything you do. 
There will always be room for learning and improvement. 

Thank you for Watching.

Memories from Panama





On December, 2010. I was invited to Panama to give some courses at Isthmus College of Architecture and design. It was my first time on Panama City and I was quite awed by the many contrasts I found while exploring this city. These photos present some of the economical, cultural, social and ecological facets I found on Panama.

1) A group of indigenous women sell crafts and weavings to the tourists at the old town. 
2) A clock inside a giant business center at Punta Paitilla.
3) Reconstruction and maintenance of old buildings at the old section of Panama.
4) Reflection at Vía Argentina.
5) The ever present air conditioners.
6) I think this is called, or trying to imitate, the "Turning Torso" (I  may be wrong).
7) The "Turning Torso" through a wet taxi window.
8) A bird with a hurt leg landed near my window at Clayton (Ex-military base)
9) A view of the New Panama from Old Panama.
10) A seller of tapestries covers himself while having lunch, at Old Town Panama.
11) A chinese container ship crosses the Panama Canal.
12) Reconstruction of Old Panama.
13) Some people protest against the modernization and privatization of Panama´s patrimony.
14) At Clayton, a neighboring colony of red ants build an impressive highway for food transportation.
15) Containers seen from Cerro Ancón.
16) An old administrative building from where the Canal used to be managed.

I just stumbled upon a great tool for artists who don't want to get rusty at life drawing but don't have the time to attend classes o hire a model.


You are presented with a series of pictures of people posing. You can choose the length of exposition of each photo (30 seconds to 10 minutes), gender of the model or if you want them nude or fully clothed.

I just did these with photoshop.

There's a long way to go, but I think I am addicted to the thing.
