the lady with dogs



It's a character illustration after reading Jeanette Winterson's book, Sexing the cherry. The woman is nicknamed "The lady with dogs" and has a wonderful, direct and quite sincere personality. She capture's the readers heart right from the first pages. 
In my drawing she is illustrated when a circus comes to town and she goes to sit in the same teeter with an elephant. The moment she sits down, the animal goes flying in to the sky. I loved the real amusement in this impossible situation, but still so very true inside the pages of Jeanette's book. 
Made with watercolor and fiber crayon colors on A4 paper.
____________

Doamna cu caini este un personaj din cartea scriitoarei Jeanette Winterson, Sexul ciresilor. Femeia care poarta aceasta porecla este minunata, directa si sincera. Fura inima cititorilor inca de la primele pagini.
In desenul meu am ilustrat momentul in care se duce la circul din oras, si este pusa sa stea in acelasi leagan cu un elefant. Atunci cand se aseaza in leagan, elefantul zboara in sus, spre cer. Mi-a placut mult amuzamentul pur in aceasta situatie imposibila, dar totusi foarte adevarata intre paginile cartii.

koi fish dreams



In romanian folklore, water in our dreams could represent danger or cleansing. If the water is clear, then something good is bound to happen. If the water is muddy, something might go wrong.
The koi fish are my adding because I love Japanese culture.
Made on A4 paper with black liner, creioane colorate and watercolors.
__________________

In folclorul romanesc, apa in vise reprezinta pericol sau curatare. Daca apa este limpede, atunci ceva bun se va intampla. Daca apa este intunecata, e posibil sa se intample ceva rau.
Pestii koi sunt adaugati pentru ca imi place cultura japoneza.
Compozitie pe coala A4 cu liner negru, crayons  si acuarela.

floating in the sea of despair



I don't think you can notice the owl in her hair. I made it too black... but anyways, it's about thoughts, those thoughts that don't give you peace. This or that? To be or not to be? so we float in our own dark mind, until we realize there's today to cherish.
composition on A4 with black uniball Signo and the reason I'm mentioning it is because here I find it rarely. Last time I took 3 of them just to make sure I'll have enough for two or three month. So...for those in Romania, please let me know if I can find them in any shop.
_____________

Probabil ca nu veti remarca bufnita din capul fetei. Am facut totul cu mult negru... in sfarsit, este vorba de ganduri, acele ganduri care nu ne dau pace. Una sau alta? A fi sau a nu fi? asa ca plutim in mintea noastra intunecata, pana ce ne dam seama ca avem ziua de azi de pretuit.
compozitie realizata pe coala A4 cu uniball negru de la Signo, si am un motiv pentru care mentionez aceasta. Aici il gasesc rar, ultima data am cumparat 3 doar sa ma asigur ca am suficiente pentru doua-trei luni. Asa ca, am o rugaminte pentru cei din Romania, sa-mi spune-ti daca le vedeti prin vre-un magazin.

with arms wide open



with arms wide open we should accept the roots of our past and present. just like in the painting before this one, it's with black liner and old ink turned brown. made on A4 paper.

mythological wings



The columns on the back somehow reminded me of Greek mythology and so I continued the drawing fallowing the idea. I used black liner and old ink that got a shade of brown since last time I used it I added a little water. It dissolved in to a nice tint of brown.
It's made on A4 paper.
___________

Coloanele din spate imi amintesc cumva de mitologia greaca, asa ca am insistat pe aceasta idee. Am folosit liner negru si o culoare ciudata de maro de la cerneala folosita mai demult. Atunci am adaugat apa la ea si s-a dizolvat intr-o tenta frumoasa de brun.
