Random pics...

It's Monday. So I shouldn't say anything more. ALL Monday sucks, especially because I'm still with this kind of depressive feeling of 'fuck everything' that usually gives me the Sunday. Call it 'hangover' or call it 'absolute boredom'. Doesn't matter. Sunday& Monday are the WORST days of the week, with difference.
Well, while I'm waiting for the visit of the muses (those fucking bitches, aaaaah, how I hate them), 'cause I have to go on with my life and with my works (though today I'm not in an optimistic mood to do it) I take the opportunity to update this blog with some things I have rounding my folders. Two portraits and one drawing I made for a future project regarding erotic illustration.

Here's Lemmy, the MAN. The father of rock and roll and one of my spiritual guides (aside from Happy Tom). DIN-A4, Charcoal on paper (with tons of attitude, I must add). I hadn't got any reason to do it, besides from my delight in draw portraits. Maybe I was listening to INFERNO (the last Motorhead album I enjoyed the most)...who knows.

That one was a birthday gift for a good friend of mine. DIN-A3, charcoal&pencil and colour pencils (red, to be specific). My idea was to give an original present, so that's why I modified (mildly) her face to include some evil stuff. She has a really strong character, so the devil-rol fits perfectly. Haha.

And to finish this update (hope the muses are here soon, in other case I'll go for a SIESTA, our national sport), here's the 'erotic illustration'. DIN-A4, watercolours & ink. Well, she isn't showing her tits nor making a hardcore orgy with the two guys of the background...I assume. In fact it's only a little drawing for a story, a quick-tale of a guy who's playing in a band and sees that girl in the crowd. The guy wants to finish quickly the gig to meet her and...well, you can imagine. So the drawing ONLY has to seduce, insinuate. Not all are always going to be tits & cocks.

For today, that's all folks.

PS: the playlist of these weeks has been REALLY assorted, prevailing the punk-rock in the same vein of The Clash, Buzzcocks, Ramones, Dead Kennedys...etc. Very festive.

Some new covers...

Hello there! Lately I'm quite busy with all the tattoo stuff and other projects and works, so the updates will be anything but frequent. Oh well.

Here's the cover for one of the next releases from the Darkness Shade Records label, the CAÏNA tape 'I, Mountain'.

There were some ideas and some sketches, but finally I chose this one, a lovecraftian monster emerging from the mountains. Dark, epic and horrifying. Or something.

And on the other hand, here is (probably) a future cover for the band BLUDVERA:

Yep, it reminds of a old school comic cover, maybe from the '80s...who knows.

That's all for today. I'm exhausted.

Anneke&Agua de Annique

I was just passing by to say: AWESOME GIG!

The musical evening was extremely nice and really intimate. The club was quite empty, but though it could seems something 'negative', the result was totally opposite. The atmosphere was magic and intense, and the crowd amazingly devoted. There were a lot of compliments for that enormous singer (well...the english of most of the spanish people is worrying and limited, so the word was -in spanish, of course- only 'GUAPA', but repeated aaaall along the show, after every song); and of course, tons of sympathy from Anneke to the fans. Extremely nice girl.
The setlist was more varied than I expected; besides of the songs of Agua de Annique there were also 2 Gathering covers (an acoustic and precious 'My Electricity' and as an encore, 'Shrink'), as well as a cover from the Devin Townsend project 'Ziltoid': the powerful 'Hyperdrive', where the wonderful voice of Anneke resounded all over the hall; and 'Papillon', from The Editors.
So the setlist order was the following:

1- The World
2- My Girl
3- Fury
4- Ice Water
5 - Day After Yesterday
6- I Want
7- My Electricity
8- Papillon
9- Adore
10- Trail of Grief
11- Beautiful One
12- Sunny Side Up
13- Who I Am (Are you There?)
14- Hey Okay!
15- Physical
16- Hyperdrive
17- Laugh it Out

Encore 1:

18- Shrink
19- Witnesses

Encore 2:

20- Wonder

I have to add something: in live that band sounds more powerful than on studio. I mean that the albums are good, really good, but too many pop-oriented. However, the gig had more 'rock sound', more power and more prominence on guitar's distortion. I expected something smoother. It hasn't got the charm The Gathering had, but some moments, they were really near.

Anyway, the only presence of this lady (and her voice):

was enough for me to enjoy the concert.

That's all for today.

There are a lot of them in the music world. One of my favourite monsters in the singing discipline is the girl drawn in that couple of quick-portraits I've retrieved from the depths of my Mac: Anneke (who is world famous for being the ex-vocalist of The Gathering)

Since 2007 she's playing and singing in front of her own band, Agua de Annique, as well as doing some interesting acoustic shows and duets with some reputated musicians, like Daniel Cavanagh (from Anathema). The music of Agua de Annique is not exactly the same she used to play when she was in The Gathering, maybe it needs more 'power' for my taste (not precisely 'metal sound', since my favourite TG album is 'Souvenirs', with that electronic vibe and drum&bass sounds)...but well...the voice of Anneke improves more and more every time she publishes a new work. So the next tuesday I'll be in the city watching her (their) concert, enjoying it and especially, her voice.
Listen to this theme:

Delicious, isn't it?

PS: as a freak note, and to finish the update: I have a kitten named Anneke. No need to comment.

As you can see on the right of this blog, I added a link called 'My Tattoos'. This is my new site/blog, where I'll be updating some of my works of the inject-ink-people discipline.
Fell free to visit it and contact me if you need some permanent art!

Thats all folks :)
