“Galloping towards the base of the steep hill,
watching the breeze bluster through her mane,
with a mild touch I veered her with reign;
For a serene moment all time stood still.
Horse and mount journeying with great skill,
but collectively as one we must attain;
Galloping towards the base of the steep hill,
watching the breeze bluster through her mane.
The first time I’ve burned out completely was last December and I decided to spend the year 2019 searching for the emotional poise and drawing freely. It is important to restore my balance because emotional wounds are no less real than the physical ones.
What do I do?
- I experiment more in drawing. I let myself work as I please. If it doesn’t go well, I don’t blame myself.
- I praise myself. No more self-shaming.
- I make up new books and create concepts. Right now I’m working on two new ideas but it’s too early to talk about it. I want to try out the international market, but it’s still fine even if I can’t make it.
- I walk, observe the surroundings, meet my friends, go shopping, laze around and read.
- I teach others – for me it’s also creative work, I get a lot of emotional feedback and I like it.
- I grow plants. This is my first hobby for the past ten years of constant working.
- I take part in different illustration contests. Haven’t won anything yet and I don’t crave for it – I draw for my own pleasure.
I think I’m getting over my burnout and my skills are improving faster. Well, time will show, how it’s going to be like in another 6 months!

Our joyous faces gave us away... security guard could tell that we were seeing it for the first time. He gave us three questions, the last one was the toughest: does it come alone or has a sister-piece? #VanGogh painted “Olive Trees” in the morning and “The Starry Night”... well, you know. #starrynight#MOMA#incredible#art#DStravelogue

I love drawing only using lines. Flowing, dashing, vivacious multicolored lines. But I always worry that nobody else likes such drawings and no one will believe that I’m a real illustrator. So I use lines in secret, I’ve even tried to keep them low in this very post.
#picasso estableció un lazo 🎀 estrecho de padre - hija (Foto 2 del carrusel 🎠) con Maya👶🏼, a quien dibujo 🎨(Foto 1 del carrusel 🎠) y para quien realizó juguetes 🎎. #picasso no solo se destacó como pintor👨🎨, sino también como escultor👨🔬. Hizo un sin número de esculturas🗿, de las cuales algunas hizo con metal⛓️ y otras las realizó con objetos cotidianos: SOGAS, pedazo de madera, botones, destornilladores🔩, entre otros. A Maya le confecciono estas muñecas🎎 (Foto 3 del carrusel 🎠) cuyo cabello es de SOGA, su cuerpo de madera y su pedestal le permite permanecer de pie para adornar el cuarto de Maya mientras no está siendo utilizada.
Seguro que ustedes #artyholics hubieran apreciado esta exposición de esculturas🗿 de #Picasso tanto como la pude disfrutar yo. 💁🏼♀️

Revisiting #masterpieces before MoMA closes over the summer. This painting, Les Demoiselles d'Avignon (1907) by Pablo Picasso - the most famous example of cubism painting- is one of my favorites to revisit every time I am there.
In this painting Picasso abandoned all known form and representation of traditional art that typically offer idealized representation of female beauty. He used distortion of female's body and geometric forms. The faces of ladies on the left side look as if they are wearing masks which shows the influence of African art on his style.
It’s well known that this painting was criticized from fellow artists when it was first revealed and the art world did not accepted his cubism works much later. It always got me thinking if there is any art movement that is truly revolutionary but we are neglecting it right now 🧐🤓
