Day 2 and 3 in Berlin

On our second day in Berlin we decided to go to the German Film and Television Museum and walk around the city before the premiere of Deshora. The next day we had the entire day to keep exploring the city, so we went to the Dalí Museum, walked to Check Point Charlie and went inside the Mauermuseum.

We have to realize that The Berlin Wall was taken down not so long ago, and trying to imagine the conflict all those people had to live through is just mind boggling. This city is so full of culture and history it absorbs you and makes you want to understand more about society. It also makes you appreciate the present and at the same time it makes you want to fight for progress. If Germany was capable of doing so much in so little time, I am sure every nation in the world has the potential to become a great country.

The Colleen Project: Colleen

Today I spent the day going through a lot of work, old and new, trying to figure out what to add to my portfolio. It was refreshing to go back and take a look at a good chunk of my history as an artist, and I got to dust off a few pieces worth of publication. In that pile of forgotten work I came across this piece that I very much enjoy. This is my friend Colleen and this is how I see her. Yes, she is a gorgeous fairy tale creature who never ceases to show her true colors, even when the weather turns gray and gloomy.

Introduction: This is who I am

This drawing is the result of the combination of an admissions essay question and Muse’s The 2nd Law. It is interesting to see that this is what I’m choosing to represent myself, but my artistic process is very chaotic and subconsciously driven, and trying to control the outcome would mean cheating myself.  So here it is. This is who I am.
