This is a cute little watercolor I made inspired on a photography I took while I was in Colombia Cartagena. I didn’t try to replicate everything. I just worked off the composition and then I expanded from there. It is fun to try a bit of landscape from time to time. The painting was given form by a black fineliner pen. It is important to make certain that the pen is not water soluble. It must say archival quality, in order to combine it well with watercolors. The interior belongs to a church. I included the original photo so you...

I got my vaccinated yesterday. I went with my brother to the local Publix. The vaccine I took is the Moderna one. Mother took the same, and so I assumed that it would work well for us. There was a slight waiting time. I had to sit there for an hour, whining to get my turn. The lady who gave me the vaccine did a good job. I did not felt the needle come into my skin.

I was going to show you my new gardening photos. Instead, I am going to show you my new painting. I finally got around to completing it. It took longer than I had anticipated. The problem was the fancy curtain and bed sheets. Just putting a bit of pattern is enough to delay any project. As of now, we have the first volume published on Amazon. From time to time, we get new directives to have some errors fixed. Publishing mangas takes a little longer than publishing books. We did not have that problem with the Chiblia because it did...

Recently, we got around to publishing our graphic novel The Furies. As before, we usually have a lot of arguments about the arrangement. It is a bit of a bother, if you think about it. We had to republish it because the color pages made manga more expensive. The stupid computer assumed that the entire book was in color, when it was mainly in Black and White. What a bother indeed. We have been talking about mirror mode and fixing the order of the panels. Whenever I call him on something he gets really annoyed and personal. Some things cannot...
