Busy

- How are you?
- Busy

Me gusta trabajar con símbolos, repeticiones y series. Estos símbolos me ayudan a analizarme. La mayoría de la gente que me conoce personalmente que sigue este blog me cuestiona elementos de mis dibujos. Me gusta que haya historias asomandose en ellos, que me provoquen alguna sonrisa y no quiero que nadie haga una lectura triste o que provoquen ninguna inquietud. De dónde salen estos símbolos... tengo mis teorías, pero os aseguro que:

me llevo muy bien con el sexo masculino
no soy activista feminista
mi marido es estupendo (y no tiene barba)
y soy feliz

¿Qué símbolos utilizáis vosotros?

I like working with symbols, repetition and series. These symbols are helpful to analyze myself and the world around me. Most of the people that follow this blog and personally know me question me about items in my drawings. I like to feel a story waiting to be told in them, I like them to raise my smile and I don't want anybody to have a sad or unrestless approach. Where do these symbols come from... I have my theories, but I can assure you that:

I get great with men
I'm not a feminist activist
I have a wonderful husband (unbearded too)
and I'm happy

Which symbols do you use?

Si uno te lee, es obvio que hablas muy bien de tu marido, de tu amigo jorge, etc, etc, pero claro que la lectura del dibujo podría ser diferente, yo particularmente no creo se pueda hacer una sola lectura, cada uno lo interpretara desde su propia experiencia y eso es lo bueno.
Yo uso círculos y estrellas en este momento, en otros eran molinos y antes ojos.

Jorge said...

Jajajj... ya te digo.. que decepción... just another pretty blogger, jajajj...

Por cierto, tampoco hagais mucho caso a lo que dice de mí, exagera para que el blog no pierda caché...

Esti said...

de todos modos, siempre me ha gustado decir "¡¡que le corten la cabeza!!" Me encanta esa frase...

jorge... te reto a interpretar mis cabezas cortadas... ja, ja....

Siempre es bueno que aflore la femme fatale que lleváis dentro. Tu versión del feminismo tiene mucho humor e ironía. La simple palabra "liada" y la cabeza en la cesta reflejan que las dos chicas se cruzan, cada una con su vorágine diaria, sin tener tiempo de contarse sus cosas. Algo común hoy en día.

It is good to show up the femme fatale you carry inside. Your personal view of feminism is humorous and ironic. Maybe the single word "busy" and the head in the basket reflect that both women would like to talk but are swept away by their personal daily vortex.

I love finding symbols in work - these are so lovely. I always tend towards a spiral-like symbol.

me encantan los zapatos
me gusta que la gente piense que soy una frívola cuando en realidad es todo lo contrario, me dice mucho de la inteligencia del de enfrente
amo a mi marido
quiero ser feliz

did your father have a beard?
Sigmund Freud had a beard.

or maybe the beard is a symbol of history? Of how it was. Your bearded men look greek to me.

I use the bunny as a symbol
and Alice in wonderland.

Eleanor said...

I understood that before you explained it, so I think that shows that your symbols really are very powerful and complex. No cliches to be found in Esti's blog!

P.S. Thank you so much for tagging me in your last post, it was just what I needed.

I like your symbols and the mystery behind them.

I loved this post and its comments!!
and I also love when the queen said that, it is my favourite part of the story.
Your husband seems so smart... to be a man, no no it is a joke!!!

Hila said...

There's nothing wrong with being a feminist, but there is something wrong with hating men :)

These are great Esti, I love your work!

Esti said...

Thanks for your reflections... inspiring somehow.

alexandra, your are pretty accurate about the symbol of history. It's exactly what these beheaded men are... symbols of personal history; the past we all carry with us. I'd love to see some of your bunnies. Alice in wonderland is very powerful.

Thanks for this feedback y'all.
