Sometimes when I talk to some friends here and I see their works I admire the fact of how expressive some of them can be. Sometimes I told them "You're more artist than me" and to me is true. I say that 'cause many people forget how beauty can be a face and they just want to catch the personality. I like that a lot. Sometimes I'm not able to do that even if I can get realistic portraits. I'm still finding my way in art.
Maybe other people is more expressive and I can't get still what I'm searching for, but I really try to put my heart there, time, hands, eyes,brain, health, etc. All of my drawings have a meaning and in general there is a sense and all of them explain my life, my present, past and future even if they are commissions.
I try to express how much I appreciate the person or objects I'm drawing. Literally I'm an artist 'cuz I make use of a "technique" but I know the way is long to get that name deeply.
I've been working in a hard commission and the drawign is done finally, but I can't post it yet. This work started after my lil niece died and I 've been blocked for weeks since then. This work and situation consumed my health even, but it was exciting. When the challenges are high I feel like a bull or like a wild horse or like a soldier and don't stop until the war is over.
Once I thought this world is a stupidity, a lot of things get me dissapointed, people destroy people, the concept of human being depends on moods. Art meant nothing to me when I was 20 y.o., when I quit to it. Nothing had meaning. Things have no changed much lately but I feel coward when I wanna quit. Somebody or something gave me the chance to live in this world and I found that I had this hability, being able to draw to me is a kind of magic,'cuz I didn't buy this in a store.
If somebody is hungry and needs a piece of bread, everyone of us would give him a piece of bread. I feel my art is my piece of bread to give; not a big deal, but it's what I have to share.
Don't quit to your dreams even if people call you idealist. Don't quit to your dreams for money. Our dreams are related to our talents, so quiting to our dreams is like quiting to ourselves. I'm poor, single and a simple man, but I do what I love. If I die and I don't get my dream, I'll know I never quit to this war and kept fighting for finding the beauty of human beings.
