  1. "SOLID!" (adjective - excellent; "cool";"awesome".)
    Can't think of a better way to describe these two.

  2. Ehhhhhhhhhhhh, Me gustan ambos!!!
    Pero si tú me pidieras que yo elija... MMmmmmm yo te diría.... el segundo dibujo.
    Me gusta mucho el detalle de las scissors, realmente you know i like el misterio en las work of art, y cuando el autor pone algo que hace que yo me pregunte: Why? ¿Por qué él puso eso allí?
    My mind explodes with pleasure!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)
    brindaré con un poco de vino, por tu dibujo!!!!

    1. OH NO, No no, no, Man, I know that many times it happens that the artist does not have that answer!!!!!
      Pero si el autor de la obra de arte nos dice el misterio, el misterio desaparece, y la obra de arte se transforma en algo vulgar.
      We do not want that this happen!
      Un abrazo, Amigo!!! buena semana para tí y tu familia!!!

  4. Before 'Dream X (faded) (A)' they seemed much more hot for each other, but now things have calmed down I see. That happens in a relationship.

    But suddenly in 'Dream X (faded) (B)', Gerard is with himself again? Should I not be thinking so hard about this? Do these diagrams come with instruction manuals?

  5. Hey Rod, did you know that when you do a Google image search for 'Gillott dip pen', your drawings come up? Pretty cool, free exposure.

  7. Wow, I'm so impressed, you did not one but TWO cool illustrations! I like them both! I love the dashed line and the little scissors, makes you want to repair the situation somehow :-) Would cutting and glue help?
    (I may do as you suggested and change the name of my ink painting, so lazy... :-P)

  9. Gracias, Amigo Rod,
    I do not care if you misspell my language, I write bad yours. but I understand you, and if I do not understand to you, does not matter, what matters is the intention to make the other know that you appreciate him, even though we write wrong (as I do now) Yo realmente no entiendo a las personas que se enojan porque gente como yo escriben mal otro lenguaje, if, at this time what matters is that humanity is communicated, in peace, love and friendship, Buen jueves y viernes para tí también!

  10. I tried...
    I try again.....




    I try to concentrate my mind on the present moment, and I try to figure it out what is going on in your drawings.... I guess my brain fade(d) , preventing me to understand....

    I have been here already 2 times, however , I was not able to give any intelligent comment (ic) as usually I do. So today no ic.



    I will try it again....

  11. Sometime you can be in a relationship and learn later that you're alone in this relationship... maybe Gerard (Gerard, isn't it??) has learned that being alone is better than being depressed.

    Faded relationship :/
