I’ve written about the fun work of wonderful Spanish artist Verónica de Arriba also known as Depeapa – many times, I love her melancholy illustrations and quirky accessories – all so original! Welcome to her day with…
My name is Verónica de Arriba, I´m an illustrator and graphic designer. Since 2007, however, I’ve been using the name Depeapa, and I’ve been re-shaping my illustrations into handmade acessories. These creations, which are made of felt, wood, paper…travel around the world to find a new home where they stay to live.
I live and work in Granada [Spain]. My apartment is also my studio. It’s little, but have a large terrace that I love! My neighborhood is like a village in the middle of the city. And this is my day a day…
I start my day with a cup of tea and a toast. Normally all the morning I check and replay emails and work on some illustration projects. After spending almost the morning at the computer, some days I go to a market near to my home to buy some food. Today is one of those days. I love the atmosphere and colors of this market…
I go home to eat with my boyfriend and then I return to work.
In the afternoons I work preparing orders for stores, sewing brooches and some days I go to the post office to send orders. If I have time I paint, recently I’ve been painting with brush, I was tired of always working with photoshop.
Two afternoons a week I go with my boyfriend at the swimming pool.
After working if I’m not tired, I like walking in the city. This street near my house, called ‘Walk of sads’, is very nice.
At the midnight….Bed time!!
