Sunday adventure

I was walking in the wilderness on Sunday. I heard a noise ahead of me and behold! Bambi and his friends!

Jungle Book

You could write 1000 blog entries about these clips analizing all the thought process behind the beautiful animation, breaking down the details and nuances, but tonight I just want to watch it and enjoy it.

Chores


These are (supposed to be) my roommates and I. After I drew these, I pasted them on a cardboard circle that serves as a dial. You can spin this dial to determine who's cleaning the bathrooms or the shared areas. We have yet to spin it...but that's good because we tend to keep everything clean nonetheless.

The wonders of non-verbal communication

Last weekend I walked into Target and the alarm thing went off for no reason. The following exchange took place without the utterance of a single word:


"I didn't steal anything. I just got in. Leave me alone. I just came to buy batteries"
"Move along. It happens all the time. That thing is broken. I hate my job"

"That's right, I'm innocent. And to prove it, I'm going to walk away confidently."

National Crisis

For the past two days, I've been looking for self-rising flour at several stores. No one carries it anymore. I talked to managers, asked the cashiers, inquired with the shoppers only to find that no-one knows what's going on. Have they stopped making it? Did it become illegal? Is someone buying them all? I shiver at the thought that I'll never find it anymore, and I will have to tell my children tales of this wonderful ingredient which made baking so much easier.

Once

I don't mind movies that make you think, but I really like movies that make you feel. "Once" is one of them -an Irish musical (of sorts) that I watched over the weekend. It has fantastic songs and a love story that is simple and honest. It's unfortunate that it has a limited release but if it's playing near your area, you've got it check it out.

In other news, I'm in the middle of moving to Mountain View. God willing, if I finish the move this Saturday, I'll start posting more regularly again.

Happy Birthday Paraguay!

This day, 196 years ago, we declared independence from Spain and became a sovereign country. Despite the state in which Paraguay is right now, I love it. I love its people, its culture, its traditions, its history. Viva Paraguay!

Picture time

Some pictures I snapped with my crappy cell phone:

Two weeks ago these bees decided to build a new hive on a low branch in my apartment complex. There were so many of them. Later that day a guy came and chopped off the entire branch.


Sunsets after work:


Today I needed to feel small so I went to the mountains and ran around. It was a beautiful day.

Chancho

This is a logo design for my sister, who started selling pigs. Last week she described to me in gruesome detail the process by which they are killed, before they are cut and packaged to be sold. The poor chanchitos!

Two gems

There was a lot of great stuff at Wondercon this past weekend, but there were two books that made me think, "I cannot leave this place without them".
Numero uno: Stephen Silver's "The Art of Silver". Very excellent drawings in a wide variety of styles.
Numero dos: "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" in comic book form, adapted by David Chauvel and drawn by Enrique Fernandez. The artwork is so beautiful. I love the design of the Cowardly Lion. And it's only $10 at amazon. Go buy it!

It came from outer space

This weekend I saw Amazing Grace and I was thoroughly impressed at how good it was. I can't remember the last time that I felt so emotionally connected to the characters in a movie. It's thought-provoking, funny, tragic and uplifting at the same time. Go watch it if you get a chance.

I've been receiving some "commissions" lately

This one I finished last night for my friend Phil. It is a drawing full of symbolism and hidden meanings...and those two sticks on the left are shovels, by the way.

This drawing I did for my sister and her boyfriend. It doesn't really look like them at all, and she let me know this. In my defense I can say that I only had one night to work on it. The colored version came out bad, so here's the line drawing.
And this is how I imagined her reaction was when she saw a drawing of herself:
Regardless of what the end result may be, I find myself enjoying drawing 100 times more than I did at school. I'm not sure why.

Jungle time

I've been asked to draw some ideas for a friend's sister's baby' s nursery, the theme of which will be 'jungle'. Here are some initial sketches:


For some reason I started craving tango music last week. I bought entire albums by geniuses Astor Piazzolla, Carlos Gardel and Anibal Troilo and I've been listening to them on my way to work. Such vigor and mystery found in their work.
