October is the month in which Drawlloween happens. Artists follow a list of things to draw everyday for the entire month of October. Although there are officially two more days left until October ends I wanted to share some of the drawings. Here are the first five I made. I joined in late and put devil, ghost, goblin together to catch up. Enjoy!
I will be participating in a show on November 17th at Swoon Gallery in Newport Coast California. The show is called Get the Lead Out VII. It's by appointment only, so if you're interested in attending contact swoongallery.com
I am so excited to show you the pieces that I made! I hope you like them.
The ghostbats represent fear. If you allow fear to take over, it can rule your world. The first piece is when my fears were so big, it felt like they were constantly chasing me. The more I was afraid, the bigger they got.
The ghostbat has gotten so big, that you could allow it to kill you, if you're not careful. In other words, you can end up with fear your entire life and allow it to become a normal presence.
This piece is about finding that oasis where you can rest, although you know the ghostbats are still there.
This one is about embracing your fears instead of running away from them, when you really look at them and feel the pain and anxiety, they subside and you can be free of them.
I've been drawing ever since I can remember. My life has been quite an adventure that has always kept me inspired. My childhood home was always filled with magic and excitement. I have memories of mysterious seances in our living room. The supernatural and fantastical has always been with me and influenced my work. Having lived in Latin America as well as the U.S. has given me a unique perspective. I could always escape to magical make believe worlds with the stroke of my pencil. I strayed from art and studied law in Argentina for a few years only to realize that art was embedded deep in my heart. It took me a while to truly know that I had to follow my love for art. I am looking forward to exploring these wonderful places in my head and allowing the world to experience them through my art.
