The Nuestra Señora del Rosario Cathedral, built in 1890, has a Roman design and is the most representative construction of the Girardota municipality. Many people constantly visit the image of the Fallen Lord (Jesus fallen in a column) that is there. That is why I selected this image, since it is part of the town in which I live.
I chose this sign of Fisherman's Wharf as my stamp because it brings back fond memories of my time in San Francisco, CA. This reminds me of my first view of the ocean in my entire life (Would have chosen an ocean photo, but I took videos instead). It was once of my first vacations I've took and I had a lot of fun while I was here.
For my Stamp I chose Berlin. For this case I selected Buddy Bears icons which have become a landmark of Berlin and are considered unofficial ambassadors of Germany, and also the Brandenburg Gate icon which is an iconic landmark of the city.
My stamp design showcases my journey at Purdue University. I joined in 2017 and the first thing I learned is the "Hail Purdue" song. The Bell Tower (in gold) is one of the famous landmarks on campus and has a tradition where students must not walk under the tower otherwise they won't graduate in 4 years. Purdue is located in the state of Indiana (in gray) and I added the seal of the state to the left with the lyrics to the "Hail Purdue" song on top.
For my print I chose several elements that represent me as an artist and person, among them is Art Nouveau, cats, detailed and ornate constructions, I also used words like Winter and Open Estudio to express projects and times that I like. // For my stamp i chose several elements that represent me as an artist and person, some of them are Art Nouveau, cats, detail constructions and ornamented.

I have a tendency to draw birds, I consider it to be an animal that is part of who I am as a person, this is a Bienteveo Alicastaño commonly seen in the metropolitan area of Medellín and its surroundings, birds that represent for me freedom, fragility, among others, they increase my interest in the world and its creations.

My city, Valledupar, is one of the most important cultural centers in Colombia, vallenato music is an identity element of all of us who are natives of the region. On my stamp I deconstruct an accordion, vallenato's flagship instrument, in the Bauhaus style, both of German origin. Showing synchrony between my love for the autochthonous and for the acquired.
This photo is a picture of the Vatican in Italy. My brother, father, and I went there and got to go around locally and see the city. This is when we were coming back from exploring the city in the evening and the lights were still on in the Vatican.
This is a photo of a sunset I took outside of my house sometime in the past few years. Ever since I moved to Indiana 5 years ago, I have been able to view the sunset from home and discover all the different colors that are possible. Something as simple as a sunset contains so much variation, and I love being able to use photography to capture moments like these.

I chose to make an unconventional stamp that could serve as a small description of my way of thinking. On the one hand, it represents a very rational and perhaps technical nature, which also happens to be intertwined with my profession, architecture. On the other hand, it tries to show a more abstract way of thinking that is related to a multisensory understanding of the world and, specifically, nature
“Respira el pálpito” es creer lo que el cuerpo dice y siente; es confiar en mí misma y en que poseo las herramientas necesarias para caminar por el mundo. Esta estampilla representa la razón y el corazón: una dualidad (la mía) en equilibrio que florece.

Mi estampilla habla de los lugares reconditos, de la realidad de otros y mía, del viajar a través de lo cotidiano, del carecer y tener. El viajar desde el alma para poder florecer
My stamp is about my favorite place "Comuna 13", I have lived in this place for the last 18 years. The Comuna 13 is over a great mountain and it has different kinds of houses, shapes and colors. This place is special for our history, people, arquitecture and tourism with electric stairs in the middle of neighborhood and a graffiti tour.
My stamp represents a fascination for death as the ultimate destination, one that confers meaning to the journey of life itself. The impermanence of all things is, as in the center of this intricate drawing, the north of my compass.

Mi estampilla muestra uno de los lugares de la ciudad donde habito, lugar que para la administración del municipio es un hito de superación, pero que para mi es un lugar donde se ha romantizado la pobreza. Sin embargo, también es un lugar que se tomó el arte y donde cada vez crece mas.
La casa. La casa como espacio habitado, como espacio no habitado. La casa que se extiende bajo los pies y bajo la piel. Las imágenes, los sonidos, los espacios, las calles, las grietas, los territorios, los edificios, las personas, la ciudad, los árboles, las montañas, los buses, las fachadas, los cines, los museos, los cafes, todo eso que algunos llamamos casa
I decided to stay traditional to the idea of a stamp. The view is of a giant rock out cropping I have hiked twice in southern Norway.
In my stamp, I used a photo I took of the Purdue bell tower on my very first day of freshman year. I wanted to use this photo because it brings me a rush of emotions about the beginning of my journey at Purdue, plus it captures the beauty of campus. I also wanted it to encompass the traditional, old-fashioned appeal of US postal stamps.
The main focus in this stamp is of a cornfield. When I think of Indiana, I think of cornfields. I added the "Welcome to Indiana" because I find Indiana to be a very inviting place.
My inspiration behind this stamp was a trip I took with my best friends a while back. We all love the ocean and were determined to swim in it even in the dead of winter (it was very very cold). The colors reflect the peaceful and content emotions I feel whenever I am with them, and the two birds represent the two best friends I went on the trip with.
My time in West Lafayette show me a silent white that brings peace. Mi tiempo en West Lafayette me mostro un blanco silencioso que trae paz. Isabel Restrepo
