A couple of weeks ago was the opening of Second Thought, my first solo exhibition in Barcelona.
A lot of people attended and we spent a very nice evening. It was a big pleasure to meet some of you, thank you for coming!

I also want to thank the guys from Oslo Graphic Barceloneta for working hard to make it possible.

The exhibition is still open; you can visit it until May 20 at Oslo Graphic Barceloneta.

Here are some pictures from the event (April 14).

Hope to see you all there!

Magoz solo exhibition in Barcelona – Second Thought

Second Thought is the first Magoz solo exhibition (from April 14 to May 20).
The exhibition consists of a selection of his best illustrations and animations. A compilation of images that play with concepts, double meanings, poetry and reality distortion. Nothing is what it was supposed to be; the images acquire new whole dimensions when you look at them closely.

Last November I gave a couple of talks at Blanc festival.
It was by far the most impressive audience I’ve ever faced. I truly admired some of the 500 people I was talking to.

In this 15 minute talk, I tried to summarise my story, the way I see life and the way I work.
I focused on 6 main points, and I used my images to illustrate them.

Technology is becoming more and more important in our lives. We spend a lot of hours in front of our computers, and they have completely changed the way we work.
As we spend hours and hours in front of the screens, we are becoming experts of the tools we use, without even noticing it.

But, are those apps giving us the best experience?

I want to share 10 apps I use every day, that improve a lot my experience using the computer.
Those are, besides of the basic apps all of us use as Chrome, Photoshop, Calendar or iTunes, small apps that I couldn’t live without.
Some of them are unknown to most of the people.

How Photoshop Actions Have Changed the Way I Use Photoshop

Photoshop is an incredible tool that comes with hundreds of functions.
We adapt Photoshop to our needs and we normally end up using just a few of them.
But, how many times a day we use each tool? How many times a day we repeat the same sequence of commands?

Wouldn’t be great to improve and automate the way we use our tools?

Photoshop has a built-in powerful automation feature called Actions.
Photoshop Actions allow us to record a sequence of actions and then run that sequence whenever we want with just one click from the Actions panel. And even better, we can assign a keyboard shortcut, making the process even faster.

I want to share with you some of the actions I use every day.
You can download and adapt them to your own needs.
