Sevilla y Córdoba, España.

Oldies from the summer 2012… yeap, time goes by so fast!

These drawings are part of my first Dalvero Academy Class Session in the summer 2012. Revising folders in my computer I came to realize that I really never posted these ones. Ops! It's me, what can I say, I think I did something when in reality I just thought about it and for some reason my brain accepts it like it's a done deal! Oh well, here they are… some more loose sketches from Summer 2012 at Disney Parks.

More… from people in the parks.

People, people people… what other place would you find more people to draw than at Disney's parks.

People in the parks...

Walking around the Disney Parks you find a bunch of really interesting characters to draw. Here some samples:

Hiding(?) between the trees of Animal Kingdom.

This might be the funniest, coolest band in the world, at least in Disney World's Magic Kingdom.

The Piano Guy (forgot his name) has been there forever, first time I visited Disney was 1996, he was already there…
back this past August, he is still there. Funny is an underestimate, the guy is real cool guy!

Cellphones at hand… quite normal...

Even the photographers on Main Street USA, at Magic Kingdom, are "on character" 24/7.

Animal Kingdom...

It's officially my favorite park of all!!! Animal Kingdom is so rich in details and design, that you actually feel tele-transported to Asia. A few drawings from those days drawing at the Disney Parks.

In the Africa area there is music and party all day round!!!

The Animal Kingdom Parade is truly fun! Fun to see, to enjoy, and to draw it.

At Disney with the Dalvero Academy

Last August, I attended the summer drawing session of the Dalvero Academy held at the Disney parks in Orlando. Although it was extremely hot, it was, like always, very fun and full of growth. Instructors Veronica Lawlor and Margaret Hurst always make it a memorable experience. I just love the vibe and the energy of an intensive drawing session, 8-10 hours of drawings a day for 10 days, gives you stamina for the entire year, oh yes!!!

Here some of the drawings from this trip:

Textures, lines, textures, lines… I can hear Ronnie's voice in my ear :-)

Backwards.../ Para atrás...

In January I declared that this year was going to be a year TO EXPLORE! I took it so literally that I had not posted a single drawing since then. Why? I was busy experimenting, experiencing and exploring what's out there, outside of this box. It has been an amazing year, full of ups and downs, more ups than downs, thankfully!!! I'll start posting drawings backwards and hopefully I'll have some of my 2013's drawings up in the blog before the year ends, so we start 2014 with a new canvas, new challenges, new corners to explore!

The following portraits were done while attending Awesomeness Fest, in Punta Cana, Nov 6-11, 2013. I would like to be able to express in my own words what is it about and my experience at this event, but I am afraid I'll fall short, but if your are curious you can always check out their site: (I'm sure you'll love it and might want to sign up for next year AFest) All I can add is: imagine the magic produced when you put together visionaries, futurists, artists, personal growth gurus, entrepreneurs,  an "open to receive and give" mentality and a lot, a lot, a lot of partying. Yes, just imagine that!!!!...

En enero pasado declaré que sería el año de EXPLORAR. Tomé la declaración tan literalmente que ni siquiera he pasado por aquí a publicar un solo dibujo. ¿Por que? He estado ocupada, experimentando, creando experiencias y explorando lo que hay allí fuera, lejos de esta caja. Ha sido un año espectacular, lleno de altas y bajas, más altas, a Dios gracias. Comenzaré a publicar algunos de los dibujos del 2013, yendo hacia atrás, esperando terminar antes de que termine le 2013. Así iniciamos el 2014 con un canvas nuevo, nuevos retos, nuevos rincones para explorar.

Los siguientes retratos fueron realizados en el Awesomeness Fest, en Punta Cana, Nov 6-11, 2013. Quisiera poder explicar con palabras propias de que trata y que experimenté en el AFest, pero me quedaría corta, si te da curiosidad saber que es, puedes visitar su página web y verlo por tu mismo: (Se que te encantará y quien sabe, quizás termines aplicando para el próximo AFest). Lo único que puedo agregar es: imagina a visionarios, futuristas, artistas, expertos en el área del crecimiento personal, emprendedores, una mentalidad de "dar y recibir", y mucha, mucha, pero que mucha fiesta. ¡Eso… imagínalo!
