Questions and answers and blah, blah, blah's

Today Daria Hlazatova wrote to me letting me know that she tagged me.

This are my answers and don't forget to visit her blog. Her works are so beautiful ^^

1. If you could sing like anyone in the music world, whose voice would you choose?

Janis Joplin !

She had an amazing voice full of feelings.


Perhaps for some Róisín Murphy doesn't have the greatest voice ever, but I love it.

2. What fantastic creature would you like to have by your side?

I always wanted to have a big red or black dragon and lately I've develop an obsession about gigantic animals, in such case I'd like to have a fire fox. Yes, it's all about the fire.

3. Is there any book you can read again and again? What is it?

I have this book since I was in my early teens named "Lost Souls" by Poppy Z. Brite. Is a book about vampires that get drunk with chartreuse and twinkies, have sex and goes through the USA listening to David Bowie, The cure, and such, well, actually is more than that, kind of lustful and poetic, in a dark way. I've read it several times and it's the only book I don't like to lend, mostly because the editorial is now dead (from Spain) and haven't found it again in spanish. I would like to read it someday in english, though.

There are some others I've read once but I'd love to read again.

4. Is there any historic/cultural event you'd like to witness?

I'd like to go to Woodstock, but knowing myself I know I'd be pretty cranky in less than 2 hours.

I'd like to be in certain periods, but being a mexican woman wouldn't be a good idea, specially broke ! u.u

5. What did you want to be when you were a child?

I wanted to be:

Peter Pan.
Because he won't grow up and can fly !

But not the one from the movie, the one from the book. He is awesome and brave.

James Dean
I loved his bad boy attitud

John Lennon
Because I love his music.

Alex DeLarge
Because it was a movie that I saw when I was a child and Alex was beyond I could understand, still wanted to be him, so badly.

6. Your inspiration comes from...

Movies, books, songs, talks I have or overheard, dreams, stories even jokes, desires, fears, friends, enemies too.

7. Five things that improve your mood

1 Good meals
2 Thinking before talking
3 Meditation
4 Sing out loud out of tune
5 Dance

In no particular order.

That's it :)

Boxes and stars

Blogging and reblogging on tumblr I found this beautiful box-star shape letter.

I've never done one before today so I decided to give it a shot. I looked the photo for a while trying to understand how was made.

Then after 2 tries I managed to make one. Ta-dah !

I need to make several more to fully understand how the foldings goes in the right way so the paper won't get too damaged.

I'm also working on this drawing. I found the photo of the girl and loved the coat. It was love at first sight, I wish I could have one just like it ^^

Now that I think it is funny because the drawing is made on paper for calligraphy :)

So, so, so, so, as I said yesterday night I did finish the drawing.

The title is "Little Megan and her Fox", which is a hidden joke, not complicated thing to understand, I guess, but I could be wrong...

I'd like to use this moleskine just for drawings of girls with animals. The first one is the girl with the goose, this goes second, still I don't know which animal will follow. I have several owl's pictures really beautiful ones, some monkeys, and deers, of course cats too.

Anyway, I need to brush my teeth now.

Not really much but I've been drawing like crazy. How is that possible, then, that the two things can be true ? Maybe I feel like I haven't done much.

This is one of the drawings I've been working on, it's called "Little Megan...", well, I won't say the whole name just like that, not here, not now ;)

What I can say is that it will be soon finished, tomorrow, perhaps.

Another drawing comes from my journal. I felt like making a dog with a medieval taste.

I wanted to finish either of those today but last night I had a terrible pain on my rib again. Is a pain that never really goes away, just sometimes gets even worse, so I took a muscular relaxer and since I'm very weak for those kind of meds I slept all day.

Last night in my dream I saw how somebody killed a girl and her brain got loose becoming the killer brain xD It was so funny seeing it going around with a knife killing people.

That's what happens when I watch zombies movies mixed with painkiller xD
