Off to Anifest

Its been a long time since last post. I had friends visiting, a deadline, was sick a few days. Well, excuses.
Theres a few things I wanted to post before I left to Anifest. Its going to be great. Films during the day and concert and party in the night. Friends, Becherovka, Salmiaki, Jameson, guitars and animation. Cant wait.
I´ve kept on drawing in the metro, bus etc. Theres something about sketching that I just dont get from anything else. Its relaxing and thrilling at the same time. And that feeling when the wheels are allready turning and you just dont stop finding apealing things to draw. Its so good.
I was just thinking the other day that all this drawing around might have actually made me get better at it. I didnt realize until I rememebred the days when the only thing about drawing people was that they just moved too quickly. It would really anoy me. No one would hold a pose long enough! And all poses were so static. Now I cant stop seeing figures in contraposto, tilted waists, squashes and stretches. Not that Im able to put it on paper all the time, but it just feels good to remember those times. Now Im struggling with other problems, think I will always be.
These are all quick sketches done while commuting . In some I tried to use a broken line, trying to get rid of my tendency of laying it all down with as few lines as possible, which sometimes leads to a very flat drawing. I remember how I told one of my friends once (hola peibol) "Why your using 24 lines when you can just draw one??" We where just 14 or something like that and maybe I just didnt know what I was talking about.
I was wondering wether I should write this or not, but I guess I just will. Theres some sort thing going around in the "blogger community", at least to me, that I really dont like. Its like this thing ..Well, I dont know how to explain. It just looks like your commenting on peoples blogs so they go check your blog out. And of course you really want that to happen but it is not your goal when you post. So its like your expecting something when you praise someone´s work. So I was thinking about not writing this but I will:
I´ve been really impressed/influenced by Nick Sung´s and James Robertson´s artwork lately. They really are the kind of guys that you look up to, learn from and make you want to improve. They have been blowing up my mind post after post. and it just gets better and better.This sound like cheap ass-licking, but its just the way I feel it. Thank you for the inspiration.

Ive been wanting to post for so long, and now that I see these I dont really like them. Next time, itll be better, I promise. Now I have a MOLESKINE :)

Hey Germain. I think I can speak for both Nick and I by saying we're both really flattered. Thanks for the mention, and I'm glad our work can inspire.
Nick is fantastic, his work really pushes me as well, so I know where you're coming from.
Your work is looking great, keep at it!
Have a great time in anifest.
