Good news!

Some days ago I told you that I was going to submit an illustration to a manga contest. It was the very first time I did something into manga in a professional mode, aside of fanarts or other drawings only for fun. Well...today I received a mail announcing me that I won the contest. It's kinda weird, my first manga drawing makes me winner in a contest...but whatthehell! I'm happy!

This is the work. I titled it 'Countess Bathory'. The only thing that motivates me -in any artistic genre-, is to draw something dark, haha.

And this is the prize. A Dragon Ball poster (old school! haha), a manga zine, a diary, a manga comic (The Ringu), some postcards...nothing fancy. But hey, for me it's symbolic. The important thing is to participate.

PS: by the way, yesterday I joined the Newgrounds community. Better than DeviantArt, really! You can check my profile clicking the link I added at the right of this blog.

Our new tenant...

Well, lately my father visit us frequently and brings with him tons of green delicatessen from his vegetable garden. The other day he came with a bunch of swiss chard. I left the vegetables on the worktop of the kitchen to wash it and put it into the fridge, and I continued doing my things. Later I went to the worktop where was the swiss chard and I saw something moving out of the corner of my eye: a snail crawling through the wall, trying to runaway from a cruel destiny. But I have feelings. Sometimes. And I had pity on it. So I adopted the snail and gave him a name: Pepito.
Pepito now lives in a tupperware with a leaf of swiss chard and some water. And though I now he's happy, he still tries to escape from his house and it's common to see how crawls slowly seeking a better future (too much optimism, I guess).

He's coming to you, aaaaaaaaaarrghhhh!!!!

Enough for today. In the other hand, a friend of mine has discovered me a good site where to submit my art, Newgrounds , without any risk of censorship. You only have to take a look to some artists to corroborate it :D So I think I will let die my DeviantArt account. I' m too explicit or sick for their rules, the move is on the way.

Countess Bathory

Here's an extract of a drawing I'm going to submit to a manga contest. It's the first time I draw something into manga genre 'seriously'. I mean I've flirted with this kind of illustration other times, like doing some fanart, but only for fun. So right now I'm so fucken nervous, haha. But well...whatthehell. I have to try it!

(Wish me luck...)

Fairies Wear Boots

(sorry for the blurred crappy pic...)

This is an extract of a double canvas composition I made circa 2008. That's fucken huge. It was on a wall in the corridor of my (still) house. I'm moving to another bigger, so I'm dismantling all the shit I've accumulated for years. Maybe I have a kind of Diogenes Syndrome...I don't know. The thing is that I'm discovering paintings on canvas I've forgotten I'd made, which were kept in an attic, so the feeling is really...weird. I'm conscious when I'm drawing? And I'm conscious of WHAT I'm drawing? Awwww...I think I've been drunk too many times. I'm losing faculties...and, especially, memory.
