Through the curtains

I don´t know if is just the feeling of the year ending or what, but december has always been my favorite month.
Last year at this time of the year my life was very different. Seems like a decade has past not twelve months.
I can say in this moment, right now, that I´m trully happy, not like a perfect happiness, I dont think it exist and if it does I dont want it, I want this imperfect happiness that I have right now :)
This illustration is very new, I´m trying to give drawing a well deserve time, because is for sure something I miss doing.
For now this it is, good nite :)

The eternal hope

Hope....I was just thinking about the meaning of hope.
What does it mean to have hope?
I believe that hope is part of what make us human, without it we are all corpses, without it there is nothing.
We need to hope as much as we need to breath or drink water, is essential.
But hope also can bring despair and can make us sad.
And then we start to hope again, to hope that the despair go away.

quote from song: "skinny love" by
Bon Iver...

Perfectly insanity

First of all Happy Valentine's day for you all!
I hope it was a happy one for everybody, I'm not really much of a fan of Valentine, to be honest.. but I do believe there is some poetry into having an special day to remind us how lucky we are in having people around us that love us and that we love back, for those how have friends, or love or both.

The post today is kinda anti valentine for no reason, I made this portrait back in december and now means more to me that back then.. thats why I decide to post it today...
The quote is from a Death Cab for cutie song, (frequently staying in my mind and my playlist) and much to do with the portrait.
The song is really sad because is about a relationship that is coming to an end(everybody can relate with that)...and how each of them knew that ¨the ice was getting thinner¨ between them.
Here is a part of the song:

¨...We're not the same, dear, as we used to be.
The seasons have changed and so have we.
There was little we could say, 
and even less we could do
To stop the ice from getting
thinner under me and you....¨

Well... :)..hope you like it..
Great weekend everybody.

Pastel delight for the heart

Hello everybody, how was this first month of the year for all?, many changes ?.
For me its being an experience, I was last week in Miami and got some amazing photos of the Art District, really cool street art, maybe I share some of the pics with you in the next post.
For now I want to express something:  how it used to be so easy to feel things when we were little?, now as adults everything needs an explanation, or every move is regulate, is very exhausting but is the way it is!, specially in heart matters.
So I'm just wondering, why it was easy before but now is so difficult to say what you feel and act as you want.
It should be easier that with time we know and master certain things, but never with love, is never easy.
So well this post represents a little of my mood today, and the quote is from a Death Cab for Cutie song, called "Grapevine fires", really sad actually it goes like this:  
"..a wake up call to a rented room
sounded like an alarm of impending doom
to warn us it's only a matter of time
before we all burn....."

Ni Hao 2011, bonjour 2012!

The beginning of a year is always existential, for obvious reasons people tend to get more idealistic and determined. I usually have 1 or 2 resolutions that are mostly  wishes for the new year that are generally like warnings of things NOT to repeat from last year, and that somehow I end up making AGAIN!. Same for you? or I am the only stubborn in town?

My 2011 ended up in guangzhou, China..... I never imagine something like that would ever happen, but even more I never imagine I would felt in love with that city. But I did, and now I look forward in going again.
"Desire" is a wicked word, right until the very core, and this year I'm full of many desires, oh yes and I feel happy with them, maybe I was doing things wrong, we usually feel scare with changes and is hard for us  to accept them, but once we do they transform us in the most unexpect ways.
Who knows what 2012 will bring to me, but I dont care, just bring it!.

p.d: New illustration!. The beautifull Du Juan, like a chinesse princess, what you think?
