Title: The trip / El viaje
Magical Forests series 2009


Escuchando a Pink Floyd, tengo uno de esos días. Llueve fuera y hace frío. Parece que el trato es de un día primaveral por cinco invernales... Sigo dibujando. Me entra un escalofrío, subo la calefacción. Pienso en todos los que se han ido de viaje, con más o menos suerte. Me gusta ver las gotas gordotas golpeando las ventanas y los tejados, haciendo volar a las palomas.

Listening to Pink Floyd, I have one of those days. It's raining outside and it's cold. Apparently the deal is one spring day for five winter days... So it goes. I keep on drawing. I shiver a little, I turn up the heat. I think of the people who are on an Easter trip, with more or less luck. I like watching the fat drops hitting my window panes and the neighbour roofs, forcing the doves to fly.

"The Trip" really matches my mood. I am slowly meeting more and more bloggers in person, making small trips to get together, and I think your drawing has captured the feeling I have when we part and return to our blogs.

Of course, you are probably laughing now at what your drawings bring out in your viewers. Unexpected huh?

In any case, I think I may be your very first commenter on this post. SCORE!!!

Listening to Pink Floyd on a rainy day sounds just the thing.

those ribbons - or belts - the girls are holding make me think of snakes. you know the colourful lethal ones. Are they called coral snakes?

Ciara said...

jimena said...

siempre le pones tu toque y lo que parece ser feo , frio y oscuro resulta ser todo lo contrario. Me encantó tu día lluvioso con pink F de fondo!

Esti said...

Thanks for the feedback. I truly appreciatte; especially because I'm in such a creative state lately... that I don't have the time to think and watch it from a distance...

alexandra, you always seem to hit the right spot... I wanted the ribbons to be snakes, and the snakes to be ribbons... sort of... :)
