after 9 days...

So this will be my 5th year working in the International Book Fair in my hometown with a illustration workshop for kids and oh boy! this was a pretty cool year... finally i made it without losing my voice although i'm exhausted! 
My workshop was pretty cool, i was using the concept of Silent Book that encourage kiddos to understand the meaning and importance of the images and illustrations, and also, they'll create their own short story using just ink and a white crayon... and yessss the crayon was the difficult part but eventually they'll worked perfectly!... i cheated a lil bit telling them that the crayon had a mix of magic and science... but the best part was hearing yelling! is magic! it works!!! no matter their age their reaction was pretty much the same...
And after working 9 days straight from 8am to 8pm, taking a tiny nap between some sessions i finally made it with my voice, had a great team, i meet awesome people, i also got 2 signed books and my debit card is kinda crying (i think i spend more than i did from the past years on books... ooooopsie...) so well, i've got plenty books to read the next year... and yesss! i hold myself to buy books that are not just novels and else, i kicked myself to make a step forward to other areas and matters that i must to read and i left behind and  of course i regreted when i'm in the big deep hole of the ignorance...

coco..

This is not going to be an spoiler alert, recently i saw Coco pixar movie and it was adorable and great! i do really thing that the filmaker and the creators achieve the idea of Día de Muertos festivity, remembering our beloved ones, not forget our roots, keep our traditions and being close to our family...
I went to the Disney and México exhibition that also include the Art of Coco, i do really enjoy it, i never thought that Walt Disney had some fond attach to the country, no wonder why the three amigos and other shortfilms inspired by our country was released so long ago...

If you had the chance to visit this exhibition, just go and see it if you were a kid ..

weekend..

I went this past weekend with my brother to promote his new calendar and illustrations, it was terrific, his friends are always so gentle and great people to hang out... his event was on saturday and oh dear was so full of people waiting to see him which make me feel so proud of him..
we also went to museums, you'll see something cool about visiting the capital is about not to break the routine but to learn and enjoying everything that is different from your town...
So, if i can make a recommendation, go to the museums, historic places, avoid bars and i'm not saying that like a bitter grown adult but i guess is more that we learn what we see in museums, bars can be an extra hint to our travels ;)

up and down

how people handle sadness? how people can handle anxiety? how people can handle depression? this question are going on my mind lately... i'm considering myself a joyful person but when this feelings attacks me are just don't really know how to deal with it, i mean i could go to the drug store and get a pack of pills but i'm really attacking the root of it? for sure material thing can't fill this sentimental holes, pills would help to regulate the chemistry on my body, and is like all this melancholia are still there in a box with a lock that some "bad feeling" would unchained.... should i focus my feelings on other things and ignore what my body and soul feels? just a merely question that lately pop up on me lately and can't help myself to feel it

the camera...


it comes with the time when stared to value the company, the persons, the moments... and i guess we appreciate it when lost someone loved, we became to revalue all this precious things instead other that may pass to other order or so...
as the year stared, i lost one of my aunts, she kept a lot of thing around her that make her feel comfortable, things that remind her husband and the happy moment she had with him... i know is hard to start something when loss your soulmate and your partner of life, but keeping things around would not bring them back to life, is like she was trying to keep her memory with him, i feel so sorry about her loss... when i was younger (and immature tho) i thought that was absurd to keep all this things around her instead of enjoying what she got in life, like her sister and brother, nieces and nephews but now, i guess i thing different, guess with my kindness, she didn't want to get rid of all this things, she want it to keep them close to her to remember not to forget the one she loved...
now all her belongs are in other hands, some are bringing joy to other people or merely doing the job of what they initial are for
some of this stuff are now in my etsy shop, i'm pretty sure she kept it with care and trying to keep the memory of the one she loved
one of this objects are a camera, full functional, with a film on it, should i took photos and capture moments of joy or just keep it as a something that was bringing joy?? can't decide yet...

in the middle of the sewing...

i won't lie, my classes are freaking cool, although i've got to say that i may probably annoy my teacher, i just ask and ask and ask and seems like all my classmates are very confident or they have more practice than me... i put all the kind of notes and memos and tips and things in order to not forget or mess my pieces...
What i did was recycling a few t-shirts for thongs and briefs and well, some of them didn't end pretty well, i have some mistakes that totally makes me feel so frustrated, and after managing how to cut the fabric and see the pattern and making a full exploration on my undies's drawer i realize how to make them and also that i need to see example (pfff and i thought that was going to be like a puzzle...!)
How this things end it up?, well, i've got 6 pieces of undies (brief, thongs and boxers), still freaking out on "how the hell i'm gonna do the babydoll" and daring myself to do the robes, pijama and night gown.... 

This is like i always do, first comes with excitement, then with confusion and frustration, then with the pressure and at the end with the "oh! i've got that"... (the pics with the gorgeous fabrics are beyond of my range! they are specially made for other occasions, although i drool all over them...)

say a little pray for us...


I barely had a memory of the 1985 earthquake, i should had 3 years old or so... my mom run to the street with my siblings and i and then... 32 years later, same day, is just the same story... i can't hold myself, i saw videos and photos and is hard not to cry when i see people helping to rescue kids and helping each other and see all the buildings collapsed... i still have faith in human kind! i do believe that people are kind and generous,  i do!
If you can help my country and my people please do it! UNICEF and the International Red Cross are supporting with food, medicine and else...
The Topos Tlatelolco is a non profit organization, i already made my donation and i'll support all the rescuers and do my part to help people recover...
I pray for us and i pray for you too..

i'm getting ready...


This week was scheduled for test my workshop... yup i was so nervous about that! not because i'm gonna be in front of 30 kids but because i've got viewers, or should i say critics... and darn! that's the reason that makes me freak out! they will put numbers and reviews and ...!! aaghhhh!!! ....
I need to explain this better... in December, there's one of the most important book fairs (worldwide!, apparently the 2nd most important!...), i work in the children area and this will be my 5th time in row, with workshops that, of course, involves book but art, creativity, imagination and two years ago i beg, and i beg to had Sherlock Holmes workshop (it was so fun! i adore it although i lose my voice tho..) so this year, it totally involves art, illustration and narrative skills, if don't, well that's the idea, the kiddos will learn..
So well, i've got a friend (a partner in crime..) who is helping me to make this workshop go on but also to team up and had fun with kiddos... how ended up my workshop test? i really know a few things, just some adjustments here and there but... this ship is sailing guys!!!

first day in the classroom...


Oh dear! i stared to take some sewing classes... actually i have to make poker face because the teacher asked if someone didn't know different types of seams or make patterns from scratch and well... i just know a few things but the other sewing classes are kinda out of my schedule soooo here i go, on my sewing classes learning how to make lingerie and else... i'm super excited! and of course, the course is full of girls and ladies, like not man allowed, but seems like everybody can be pretty cool and also the teacher... just in case that i don't know something for sure i'll ask and lucky me, i've got my sewing machine at home...
i'll cross my fingers to make myself some undies (do not expect pics of me modeling..) but i'll keep you updated with my progress or my complains...

but a solo...


I read a quote that makes me think a lot (or may probably is because i felt it so identify with it...) "Artist are people driven by tension between the desire to communicate and the desire to hide" D.W. Winnicott.... and yes! is so true! or at least is how i feel, to be true, i don't have any individual art exhibition, just to think on it, seriously put me so nervous! in some way is not only my ideas but also my feelings, thoughts, is like been naked in front of people!... i guess is just matter of time and maybe because the first time, and then, the next exhibitions will be so simple and will flow so easily...
I've been working on a couple of paintings but i asked myself that it should be time to make a solo... (get me a Chewie! ;) )

A plant for the future

I've got this idea, that i'm not really really a great plant lady for the reason that most of my plants die because, well, i don't know but is funny, i can make them grow from seeds!
This little baby tree is one of my fav trees in town, i just found out that is a singer tree, i know, sounds funny but when the tree starts to bloom and when is full of it's fruits you can hear him sing, is so full of singing birds! i was so stunning when i saw it! i saw woodpeckers, parrots, mockingbirds, canaries and other birds..
Soon, i do really hope to plant it and so the people can hear it singing like i did...

Lately in the museums...

How often do you visit museums and the galleries? are you the type who enjoy visit museums or you rather go to other places?.. to say it true i like to go not just to see some art, in some way i think that visit museums could let us know what's going on around art, it also approach you to other perspectives, you can either see artworks from local artist or from other cities and countries
I like to see both, in some way, it can let us know different points of view and perspectives in art around everywhere... 
And yes, i've been in museums and galleries around my town and i took some photos of artworks that totally love

this rainy days..


This past days has been pretty rainy, not like just a few drops, like pretty badly storms! (in some way i was almost to take a couple of each animal's species and put in an ark!!) was pretty badly, but after all the chaos and else, the air is so fresh, although some trees around town can fall for the rain and the wind... i guess is the bad part when it rains...
I get deeply soak one day when the rain catch me in the street in the downtown area... i took some pics of my town after all, and it was pretty nice the air...
