Unfinished Work

digital transformation

Inspired by the movie, Coco, I attempted to etch a Día de los Muertos skull on my own. The etching part went fine, but the applying the paint and making an imprint part was another story. The results can be seen below. A few months later, my friend encouraged me to draw the skull digitally. The results were much more satisfactory, teaching me the valuable lesson: never give up on unfinished work.

Sarcastic Narcosis #4: Apartides Rising

Apartides Rising

Princess on a steeple and all the pretty people
they’re all drinking, thinking they’ve got it made.
Exchanging precious gifts,
but you better take your diamond ring and pawn it, babe.

New Year’s Resolution #8: Do More Yoga

Yoga Bones

As I formulate my New Year’s resolutions for 2018, I will most-definitely add do more yoga to that list. Not only is yoga a great physical and mental workout, but it’s an effective way to understand the body (bones, muscles, internal organs, etc). Having performed various stretches and postures called asanas, I’ve realized that (besides being as limber as dried-up coral washed ashore), my body parts have grown quite imbalanced. For example, my left arm and leg are way more flexible than my right arm and leg. Why is that? What scientific phenomenon has caused this disparity throughout the years? Besides this question, doing yoga has brought up many, many more. And it’s asking questions about ourselves and the world around us that keeps our minds on the path of curiosity and creativity. So get ready, yoga mat, you’ll be seeing more of my rigid skeleton in 2018!
