Three days

I rarely finish a piece in one day, even more rare is that I produce one piece for several days in a row. Last week, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, when I'm absolutely exhausted and destroyed after work, I produced these three pieces, one each day, respectively.
The three of them involve a Bic pen and paper, for the third one, I also used colored pencils. There is some sort of progression to them: The first one is abstract; the second one, involves an eye and mostly abstract; the third one is human figure and fantasy art.
I'd been having some sort of urgency, a couple of days prior, to take that drawing book and just take some sort of black medium and cover an entire page with something/nothing in particular and, on Friday, "Mandala" happened. If you click on them you get a bigger version.

"Mandala" is not a mandala by definition, but the word was all I thought of whilst drawing it and it was all I could think of when I saw/see it, so that's it title.
The mandala definitely had some meditativeness to it, whilst making it. All the lines and the flow there is to it, are sure to get me into a pensive mood.

This second one has no title and I'm almost certain it has some influence from a sketch that Andi Soto posted

And this last one is titled "Demons get all the girls", the Fantasy Art peeks it's head from time to time and, on Sunday, this dude just happened.
The demon, with his sly, careless and sharp face, really makes me smile, when I look at him.

I quite clearly see a progression in the drawings, each one if more complex than the next, it goes from no human figure, to some human figure, to human figure entirely.
So, yes, this happened over the end of last week.

Also, I'm participating in this collective, end of the year art exhibit by Casa Cultural Huellas (one of the organizers of the residency that I did this year): Celebra.Ciones. It opens on Saturday, 1st of December at two in the afternoon and it will be open to the public for a month. You should go and buy some of my work or the work of my colleagues, because we're extremely cool people.
And remember that I've got a Facebook page that you should like, it's the best place in which to keep up to date with my work and whatever I'm involved in artistically: Gabriela Handal Arte

Thanks a lot for reading and see you next time!
