in progress: Lilith

still frustrated and sad from the loss of my stuff. but we must move on. Lilith awaits. like a good Moon in Scorpio, i’ve been always drawn to the underworld folks. i love drawing Liliths; this is my 3rd one, and it’s the most intense and mature. my understanding of this goddess came a long way, and lately she’s been blossoming inside myself with great intensity. there is a Lilith inside every woman, but our feminine unconscious has been so mashed up for so many centuries by the patriarchal mentality that we […]


In progress: Vali 2

trying to redeem myself from the Tree of Life fiasco, i decided to forget it for a while and catch up with my list of projects. there was something disturbing me a couple nights ago and that just let me sleep after I grabbed my sketchbook and filled up a page with an almost mediumistic sketch. that was Vali Myers. this preparatory sketch was made yesterday morning, and during all day long I dedicated myself to the labor of attempting to represent that mesmerizing woman. when Julia Inglis introduced me to her, […]


in progress: The Mirror 3

i still feel sick. i have moments in the day when i feel more energetic; in others i just want to lay in bed. feel sick to my stomach. still the pressure inside my head. the sad thing is that i totally know why i am that sick – just don’t have the resources to fix it and the people that could help me are miles away. so, i stay strong. i always do. i am a warrior. but i don’t know for how long though. there’s a limit for […]


about Waterlily 2

Waterlily was a nice surprise to me since I got to believe I was not able to work in soft colors anymore. I’ve been pursuing a dreamier, cleaner and suave style for a while and it suddenly came to life with this work. again, I got to achieve exactly what I wanted just by working with no sense of compromise or preoccupation with quality or symbolic purpose. I suspect I’m getting closer to something very exciting right now… :)h another thing it’s been difficult to control is the complexity of […]


Our Lady of the Angels-Gone and the "Terrible Mother" 3

about two weeks ago I began to feel a strong wish of working in a piece about abortion. I got to make a nouveau-style illustration some time ago, but nothing close to this work I started to develop early last week and decided to call Our Lady of the Angels-Gone. writing this post was very difficult, since many questions came to my mind, questions that lead to another to another to another… the ones who know me know that I am totally pro life, and it saddens me to know […]


about "The Waterman" 2

(funny to have finished my depiction of Jesus Christ so close to Easter. I swear it was not on purpose. but the muses sometimes like coincidences. or, if you prefer, synchronicities.) well, it’s finally done, the first part of my most ambitious project so far. it’s the middle panel of The Waterman triptych, called Unio Mystica. it is a work full of symbolism and it’s impossible to unfold each one of them here, since each symbol leads to a myriad of things, either Bible passages or occult teachings. (anyway, long […]
