waiting for spring: more rope dancers

The inspiration for these happy and elegant rope dancers are all the swallows that are about to come back soon to their headquarters , and soon they will be populating again all the wires and cables around town, busy building their nests and catching bugs and having their happy conversations….
La inspiración para estos equilibristas tan contentos y elegantes a la vez, son las golondrinas que vendrán de vuelta pronto, me encanta verlos volar, balancear, buscar moscas, dar vueltas y todo esto mientras charlan alegremente entre ellas.
Als Inspiration für diese animierten Seiltänzer dienten mir die Schwalben, die ja bald wieder hier einfliegen werden, und dann wieder wie jedes Frühjahr, angeregt schwatzend auf den Kabeln sitzen, elegante Runden fliegen und ihre Nester renovieren.

a drawing – a story

Today’s drawing illustrates the story of two very talented air acrobats rehearsing for their big  show, when a little bee just passes by and stopps in the middle of the air, awestruck and saying sssoohhhmmmm….., while it sticks its trumpet in the air.
El dibujo de hoy cuenta de dos acróbatas del aire conocidos por su gran talento están ensayando, cuando pasa una abeja y se queda parada en el aire de tanta admiración, y ya solo sabe decir sssooohhhmmmm ….
Das Bild von heute erzählt von zwei sehr talentierten Luftakrobaten üben für ihre nächste Vorstellung, als ein Bienchen vorbeikommt, und vor lauter Begeisterung mitten in der Luft stehenbleibt, und nur noch sssooohhmmmmm…. sagen kann….

Bird hair day…. pajaros en la cabeza … die hat ja ‘nen Vogel…

I decided to do some drawing and experiments in my sketchbook, and started a series called “a picture a day” Here’s one of the fist drawings with water colors, ink  and wax …. He decidido empezar una serie pequeña de dibujos y experimentos con colores y formas. Se llama ” un dibujo por día” y aquí hay uno de los primeros…. Ich habe beschlossen, nun für eine Weile in mein Skizzenbuch zu zeichnen und zu experimentieren, die Serie heist “ein Bild pro Tag”, und hier zeige ich Euch eines der ersten…

Spring is here!… and the swallows arrived!

Just in time for the start of springtime, the first swallows arrived here in Manzanares!
My couple of swallows took their house in the garage again and Mum and Dad swallow are busy restoring it and preparing their summer residence.
Each year, I ask myself, where they have stayed over the winter, what adventures they had on their long trip, if they are tired when they arrive and: What if they had flying nests?

Have a nice first spring week-end – and watch out for the swallows 🙂

New year, new ideas….any good intentions for 2013 you don’t want to forget?

Right for the  beginning of the new year, when all the new ideas and good intentions come up, I finished some books to hold all of your personal notes. They are meant to inspire and to give a positive feeling when using them.
The notebooks are A6, with blank pages, and each one holds two original and unique illustrations painted on canvas.

Here is the girl with a big heart up front, and her king on the back:

If you like animals you might like the one with the geese and their green shoes:

There are more to come, so visit every now and then!
