Letter to the Three Wise Men
This year I would like to share with you my Letter to The Three Wise Men with a list of all the gifts that I would like to ask them for this year.
I think it is a very special list because it is full of products and projects made by artisans and artists that I follow and admire for everything they do as creators.
I know that the list is huge and I am very aware that it is not possible for them to bring me everything, but I was very excited to write it and write down each of the gifts that I am going to show you.
This illusion I have is due, perhaps in part, to the fact that deep down it is not a letter just for me, but one that I hope you can share. And, of course, if in this list of mine you find something that you want to add to yours, I hope you still have time.
I wish you a magical night!
Allen is an illustrator, concept artist, and author. His illustrations born of the everyday are distorted in his imagination, preserving a realistic, disturbing and fantasy aesthetic.
Marta is an illustrator and author. I love her illustrations and stories that are expressive and with that touch so cute and wild at the same time.
Marcos is an illustrator and book creator. His wonderful illustrations, with carefree graphics, tell stories through games and metaphors.
Marta’s art is full of nature and magic, fairies and goblins, witches and things typical of the world of wonder.
Marga makes contemporary jewelry. Her designs are original and unique. She has her small shop-workshop in Barcelona, where you will find her working on projects that, sometimes, are also magical.
Nuria is an editorial, advertising and product illustrator. Her illustration is simple and communicative, and what I like the most about her are her color palettes.
Eli is a multidisciplinary artist. Nature and organic forms characterize her illustration of romantic and colorful inspiration. I love the style and elegance of her illustrated products.
Ester is an illustrator and all her art is full of nature. I am in love with her work since its inception. Enjoying a book illustrated by her is a real joy.
Unai is an illustrator and I declare myself a fan of his drawings and illustrations. And of all the products he makes with them!
Marina is an illustrator and artisan. I have admired her illustrations since I was a child. She works the ceramics to create jewels, tapestries and some teapots that are wonderful. She also makes some marionettes that are a crazy thing!
The pieces of Galician goldsmith that she makes are unique. The earrings and toads are some of the most beautiful and traditional jewels that I have seen.
Álvaro is a magizoologist. He finds magical creatures, or rather they find him, adopt them, study them and teach us to deal with them. I’ve been thinking about adopting a unicorn and a pegasus, I haven’t even known since when!
Nabila models some beautiful seed-shaped figures that you fall in love with and you urgently need to adopt and take home with you. I am in love with these chestnut seeds.
I love the tiny, almost tiny, pieces of polymer clay from Patrick in the kawai style. I encourage you to imagine how beautiful any personalized order that you ask for would be.
Tania’s custom chubbies are gorgeous. She creates collections of them based on movies, animation series, sagas … She has even dared to do some commissions that are to die for. With each new model she makes, you don’t know which one to decide on, and that’s how time passes and I without my wrist.
There is no magician who does not want to acquire a medieval cut cape or a fantasy hat made by hand with the quality as wonderful as that offered in this store so recommended in the fantastic and steampunk community.
I think there is no better place to order your personalized wooden magic wand than here. The work of this craftsman (proud Hufflepuff) of wood results in wands that enhance the magic of the most experienced magician. Simply amazing.
This jewelry inspired by series, video games and movies awakens my geek side. To think that I can carry the power of the Silver Crystal with me with a pendant like this is to be hopelessly desired.
Tomás is an illustrator of gouge and linocut, printing press and engraving paper. His designs take us into a world of fantasy, magic and mythology. His illustrations based on Tolkien’s work blow me away and his bookplates are a crazy thing.
Their amigurumi dolls are irresistible. I think I still remember the first creature that should have come with me from the fair I met them: a Pika-Cthulhu who stole my heart.
The lords of Villaoscura are experts in dark crafts. One of the products that I am most passionate about are the papier-mâché dolls in the shape of lost, forgotten or simply out of this world children. That’s why they attract me so much.
Fantasy illustrator with a world of inspiration that is completely close and familiar to me. I love his job. His latest publication, Visions of Whense, is a collection of sketchbooks that I would love to have on the shelf now.
Iris Compiet is an illustrator of fairies and fantasy creatures. I fell in love with her drawings as soon as I saw them. Her fairy book: Fairies of the Faultlines, field notebook style has been a success. I could not acquire it when it was launched by crowdfunding campaign, that’s why I put it on my wish list.
Illustrator of the worlds of Spiderwick. His drawings have the power to make you believe everything they convey in a magical way. It is without a doubt one of my references. His latest book, The Broken Ornament, is a very sweet story set around Christmas time and full of reindeer and elves.
Illustrator and writer. Creator of the Guardians of Childhood saga. I had the pleasure of meeting him at a literature conference when I was already a huge fan of Jack Frost. He has released his latest book with Jack Frost as the protagonist. I can’t wait any longer to get my hands on it!
Fantasy and folklore artist. I love her watercolor illustrations. She recently published a witch book called Cauldron, which has me spellbound..
This artist is internationally known for his work as a conceptual landscaper in animated motion pictures. His landscapes made in watercolor and gouache are a very powerful influence on my work since I follow his online courses. You can imagine how much I wish I had one of his originals.
