New journal

My first entry on my brand new journal.

Of all I've been using in the past I found that the squared ones are more comfortable; maybe is because when I was a child I used to love my math notebooks and those days when I saw my dad working on his equations.

I always wanted to study a physics of maths but, let's face it, I'm not good at it :( So I'll continue making drawings and pretending I'm a scientist :D

I like the cahier size for journal, large one is too big and I get the feeling I'd never fill it.

In the garden

Today in the morning before breakfast I was taking some photos.

I love to watch the plants, their textures and colours, the shapes they make, lights and shadows. Even in simple dead leaves on the ground makes the most interesting view.

Truth is the whole "taking photos in the morning" was because of this tiny bug I found. I've never seen such bug before until today and found it very beautiful. It took me several photos to catch his "good side" but it helped that first I dropped the magnify lens and he got scared (the bug, not the lens... I guess), so stayed really still.

I wish I could have a real macro lens and take those kind of photos.


Today I'm going to send a letter, that is actually not a letter but something else ;)

Face - almost done

I've been working on this drawing for the past days, but I'm still not sure if I should leave it this way or add some more.

As it's from my journal it should has more, I know, still would look weird if I think of it as a whole with the previous drawing on the other page. Maybe a good idea would be to keep them as separate pieces.

I'll come around soon... maybe :]

My sister came for the weekend with her boyfriend and mother in law, so we decided to take them to the museum. There we saw this Jan Hendrix exhibition.

Is not allowed to take photos, but I managed to do it, but I took just the pieces I liked the most.

This one was very nice, with the light and shadows playing. It is a metallic spiral and the light comes from inside (lights coming from above), projecting all those beautiful shadows on the walls and floor. I was thinking I'd love to have something similar in my room with my bed inside it ^^

The frames here had photos, pieces of wood, seeds, stones, feathers, etc. almost like a naturalist or someone telling his stories from travels and far away lands.

A closer view.

The other exhibition was about portraits from lates 1800 and earliest 1900 in México. I wish I could have better photos and more of them , but the guard was looking me in a not so friendly way :/
