Where is my mind?




A nada que te sientas delante del ordenador, comienzas un viaje de inspiración. Debes dejarte llevar; las imágenes son sugerentes, ambiciosas, delicadas, complejas, enigmáticas, tiernas... Al otro lado de tu pantalla cientos de personas desnudan su talento, hacen visibles sus obsesiones, sus proyectos, sus motivaciones. Esta es una experiencia fascinante. Todo me inspira. Ya no quedan hojas en blanco. Quisiera ser superheroe y poder atravesar la pantalla de este ordenador para poder tocar, oler y percibir mejor tanto talento.


The inspirational trip begins as soon as you sit at your computer. You have to let yourself go; images are suggestive, ambitious, delicate, complex, enigmatic, tender... On the other side of the screen hundreds of people undress their talent, make evident their obsessions, their projects, their motivations. This is a fascinating experience. Everything's inspiring me. There aren't blank pages left. I wish I could be a superhero, able to go through the screen and touch, smell and perceive so much talent better.

With your feet in the air
and your head on the ground
Try this trick and spin it, yeah
Your head will collapse
But there's nothing in it
And you'll ask yourself

Where is my mind.

Me siento identificada con tus sensaciones ante el mare magnum de creadores en internet.
Bonito árbol y preciosas flores veo por aquí! Un saludo y gracias por la visita!

Lucía said...

Me pasa lo mismo: los blogs han despertado nuevas inquietudes en mi, ahora me da por la fotografía.

Preciosos dibujos.

Besos.

This is one of the reasons why I love blogging! Inspiration is everywhere :)

Your sketch is very beautiful! I'm just about to gocco some more cards and secret things in the same style.

Beautiful tree drawing! I love how the branches look like arms.

It's so nice to see your drawings everyday! The bottom sketch is just so amazing. If you start selling your sketches, you must let me know. Thanks for the link to Paperiaarre...there is so much inspiration out there and it's fun to see how different artists influence each other.

Esti said...

Thanks everybody!

Jill, I'll make sure that you are the first to know in blogland if I start selling prints internationally. I might, I might, someday... soon.

y yo pido ser la segunda en saber, sale!? me encanta, encanta la segunda ilustración!!!

con tantas maravillas en cada blog a poco no dan ganas de hacer de todo!!? cuando miro el tuyo quisiera poder tomar un lápiz y dibujar cosas así de lindas! aunque me frustra un poco no saber ni cómo o por dónde empezar :(

nunca he escuchado american music club, lo voy a buscar.

abrazos!

Both are great drawings, I like the idea of the girl hiding her face and the repetition of the plant life.

The tree is really striking, I really like it. It reminds me of a project I did for an art class in college, I wrapped thousands of rubberbands around twisted newspaper to make a rubber tree. It was fun to play with, a tree that bounced!, but took forever to make...

Anyhow, great work, I'd love to see the little girl one with a subtle watercolor wash maybe, I could see a series of these, her hiding in many places...

OK, I'll let you come up with your own great ideas, you certainly don't need me, haha.

andrea tachezy said...

Very nice written, and the bottom drawing is great.

mansuetude said...

lovely, lovely, lovely!

Its delicate, that bottom drawing... for me, i want you to keep some blank pages. :)

Your heart has a hand and a voice, too--one that is only you and yours with which to write and draw; i feel its soulful music.

Such lovely detailed designs. I love it. I know what you mean about finding inspiration; it's so nice to be recharged creatively by others!

esti,
gracias doblemente por tus palabras en el blog.
Certeza en esto de querer hacer tangible lo que sólo vemos del otro lado...
simpre es bueno encontrar cuadernos de otros con universos por ahí...lindo este árbol y sus grafismos,

a seguir cruzando
