yo quieroooo!!!
y es q en todos los dibujos de manos que he visto se transmite algo especial, la esencia de la persona...
:)

i want my hands to be drawn because i think they are full of secrets. they bear very little marks of manual labor but i do everything meaningful to me with my hands - write, dance, play, etc. there was a time i would only allow myself to be visually and auditively touched. now, ive conquered the fear of the warmth of the hands.
esti, the hand project is just beautiful!

Nata said...

Un motivo sencillo: porque me hace ilusión.

FruensWerk said...

Oh...because I love every single hand i meet...always looking at peoples hands, full of histories...
My own is the second most important body part I got...they are my life, my happiness...thinking about how many things I use them for...every single second...practical boring home things (dishwash) haha, drawing, knitting, scratching my back, making food for my family, washing my body, saying hallo to other hands, they can be open, closed, happy, angry, sad, hurt, currious, speak...All of me are in my hands...

Okay maybe a little messy...but hope you get tha point...haha
my hands a wawing

Yo creo que ya me he apuntado un montón de veces pero lo repito: me encantaría participar porque nunca me han gustado mis manos: pequeñitas, rechonchas y con los dedos cuadrados... pero estoy segura que tú sacarias algo bonito de ellas.
Un beso y buen día.
Se que tú también lo has sentido, ví tu comentario en el blog de Francisco Nixon.

Tengo muchos, pues me encanta este proyecto. Primero, porque me hace ilusión; segundo, porque no solo dibujas, transmites mucho más; tercero, porque yo a las manos les doy mucha importancia y pretendo vivir de lo que hagan ellas, veremos si lo consigo... y cuarto (aunque hay más), porque este es un sitio en el que cuando suelo entrar muchas veces hace que se me erice la piel. Besos, Lu

Dear Esti!
You always have good ideas and writes so interesting words. Moreover, thanks for all your encourageing comments. I am going away on vacation again and will take pause from this blogworld a month. Have a nice time so long and see you in autumn…:)

karina said...

I am a fan of yours, so I wouls lave to have ay drowing by you, but hands means so many things

La Ballena Elena said...

Me encantaría tener la mano de Unai y la mía (pq quiero estar cogida a su mano siempre) y pq no se me ocurre una forma más bonita de celebrar nuestro primer aniversario.

:) (Laura feliz)

karin said...

Esti, now I'm confused. I thought, the participants are randomly drawn already??
Well, you know, I'd like to participae :)

Eleanor said...

I must be totally honest with you Esti...I would like to have my hands drawn by you because it would make me feel special and important. That is the power of art, I suppose.

I was going to give a more selfless, less egotistical reason...oh well...

You know I am a big fan of your work!

Esti said...

thanks everybody for participating in the new draw! Good luck!

karin, a number of names would be picked next wednesday, possibly by my kids who enjoy the fun (i'm still considering how many, thinking on the project and the time I have) and after that I would be drawing their hands. There isn't any hand drawn in advance since I need each hand silhouette traced and photograph!

And, for those who have already send me any kind of contribution to my project: I'll be making a zine or ezine or something next autumn with all the material and random art.

I want this project to reach as many of you as possible in one or other way.

Gracias

Iñigo said...

Yo quiero ver mis manos dibujadas aqui para que me paren y me hagan leer y saborear más despacio tus fantásticos posts, que siempre te leo a la velocidad del rayo...

:)

Aran said...

porque sencillamente me encantaria ver como ves tus mis manos. me encanta como observas y tu punto de vista de las cosas, y s, me haria una ilusion tremenda!

Raluca said...

Hi!

I don't know enough Spanish to write you a coherent comment so I'll just write in English (another foreign language for me as I'm Romanian :) ). I've been watching your blog and also reading others belonging to the people whose hands you've draw for your project and I've seen the amount of happiness you've brought to them. So knowing the Hand Project is on it's last lap, I'm writing my first comment here to congratulate you for the great idea and fabulous results! Thanks for all the eye candy! ;) Oh, and of course I'd like to participate but that's your call so happy choosing! I hope you have a great rest of the week! :D

para mí, aparentemente mis manos son 'normales' pero de vez en cuando me pasa que las veo en una fotografía y me digo a mí misma: qué bonitas manos! y tardo en darme cuenta que son mias. esas, mis manos, las que se llenan de ronchitas cuando me pongo muy nerviosa, o se hinchan cuando hace mucho calor. esas, en las que el dedo anular de la mano derecha tiene un callo de tanto escribir. mis manos, las que tocaron el piano por 10 años, pero ya no lo hacen más. son las manos que ahora me sostienen cuando hago perro boca abajo en mi clase de yoga; esas manos que no dejan que me caiga, con las que hago equilibrio y me sostengo.

cuando pienso en todas esas cosas, me digo a mi misma: sí, mis manos manos son muy bonitas.

es curioso como algunas veces es la mirada externa la que me recuerda y reafirma quién soy.

asphaltandair said...

i'm in love with that photo!
really, i am.

aimee said...

i love how you transform each person's hand from something utilitarian and functional into a beautiful work of art.

Thereza Rowe said...

Esti, the photo is amazing! WOW!
well, just commenting... don't need to enter because i've already had my lucky day with it :)

Famapa said...

love that picture! I'm so glad you're offering some more of your beautiful hands! I feel that mine are hopeless but in the past year I've been challenging them by taking up knitting and of course starting to play the piano... I did try drawing last year but my head didn't have the patience :)

by the way, I tagged you today. Hope you want to play!

Marina said...

Llegue tarde :(
Me hubiera gustado participar, porque me encanta lo que haces.
La próxima. Un saludo,
Marina

Marina said...

PD: me encantó esa foto!

when skies are grey said...

This shadow picture is so cool, such an exaggerated form!
I'm excited to see more of your hand project as it continues...and of course so honored to have been a part :)

Kirsty said...

Everything about this hand project has touched my heart Esti - it's been a really beautiful project.

la casita de wendy said...

hola! si no es muy tarde... yo quiero apuntarme!

la casita de wendy said...

no te he puesto motivos, pero me gustaria ver como interpretas mis manos... porque hasta ahora cada una que has hecho es especial.

.girl ferment. said...

hi esti,
i would like to participate to see the way you interpret me and my hands.
xx

jimena said...

Tan solo quiero ver como quedan mis manos pintadas por una artista ! Besos!

Dédalus said...

Mis manos no son lo que más me gusta de mi cuerpo, pero sí creo que pueden llegar a ser lo que más transmiten, en un momento determinado. Además de la mirada (la mirada de cualquiera es algo único)... Claro que pintar una mirada está sólo al alcance de los elegidos.
Te deseo suerte en tu proyecto, Esti. Sé que tienes cualidades para hacer bien las cosas y para querer lo que haces.

Un beso.

MegRuth said...

I love your hand project and would feel so privileged to be a part of it.

My hands make things, take moments and freeze them, they give good back scratches and hold other hands. My hands have a history. I wear my grandmother's ring. I bite my nails and never paint them.

You have beautiful work, thank you for allowing us readers to be a part of your art!

angie said...

please add me to your list for the drawing. i would be so honored to have your interpretation of me on mi hermanos. a lovely idea. i'll share it on my blog too!

omami said...
