1. Rules: In a text post, list ten books that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” or “great” works, just the ones that have touched you. Tag [ten] friends, including me, so I’ll see your list. Make sure you let your friends know you’ve tagged them.”

  2. #myart #madlib comic #Ekari #listen #potato #james #chow-chow

  3. Madlib games. I asked fellow artist Ekari for words and I used them in a sentence, as well as, make a comic. This was pretty fun, and hard haha.

    Ekari is a cool artist who experiments with different mediums and has a lot of good work. Check it: http://blog.ashleighekari.com/

  6. #myart #video #exaveyur #puro oldies #lili papi

  7. This one was for the release of my exaveyur’s sold out Puro Oldies beattape.(under the alias: "Lil Papi") Everything about it is chicano/oldies culture. All the samples are from lowrider music, spanish films, and gang culture.

    I asked him if I could do the first half of it on the youtube channel to get more folks in the know. He agreed, and let me do it the way I want.

    I mainly made sure it stayed close to only have footage done by/worked on by Latinx to keep it true, but with some more insight within the culture. I tried to broaden it more to show latinx as whole group of people capable of an extensive, political, and human experience.

    I also wanted to keep the visual in tuned with the lofi sound, so I went with a tv theme of bad reception(lofi) to flicking through channels.(changing tracks)  

    You can listen to it here:

    He’s a great artist who stopped doing music, but check out his stuff.

     
  8. #myart #video #Thallus #uglyabs

  9. This was for a line project in a class I had. We were to make lines but in a “non traditional” way. 

    I admit it gets a little long partway through, but I had fun doing it. 

    most of the material is stock footage except for some scenes.

    I also make videos with some friends on this youtube account. My videos are credited under “uglyabs”. (secrets out!)

    I’ll post two more of my favorites I did on the account.

     
  10. #myart #character models

  11. This was a go at some character models for a puzzle game my cousin wanted to make. He said he wanted “cute animals” altered by objects/items.

    He wasn’t clear about his vision, so I sent him these. They were fun to make. It didn’t fit the idea behind the game :( but he liked them and got me to do something else with his company.

     


  12. I decided to keep this strictly my artblog, so I’ll have a reblog-tumblr for other stuff from now on.

  13. #In the Mood for Love #Wong Kar-Wai #Maggie Cheung #Tony Leung #film poster #good film

  14. One day, I will draw all of Maggie Cheung and all the amazing outfits she wears in this film.

    I should do a film series of all the films I like so far as well.

    You can’t stop me.

  15. #full ten #quote


  16. I’ve never met a man who was stronger than me. Physically yes, of course, my arms are tiny little noodles, but emotionally and mentally? No. Women aren’t build stronger, but we are made stronger, forced stronger. Unfortunately through societies unnecessary hardships and oppression of women. We deal with violence, harassment, belittlement, and having our humanity stripped of us, and then we have to learn how to handle all of that and do it gracefully and learn how to protect our dignity and strengthen who are without the help of any outside forces since their all against us. Men can’t handle that. They just can’t. The world is build for them, when they don’t get their way, when the world isn’t what they assumed it should be, they dissolve, they break down, they don’t understand it and refuse to adapt. Like angry babies.

  17. #Mario Escobar #My Mother's Bags #Poetry #El Salvador


  18. My mother has two bags
    full of mysteries
    and like many Salvadoran women
    she is very protective of her bags

    As a child I was never capable of breaking
    the Morse code that came out of her bags
    one day
    while the past had stationed
    in her lips
    I was able to see what she had in her bags

    In her first bag
    she carries red steps
    the desire of a gentle touch
    scars of lonely nights
    permanent blisters
    the punch of a man
    unwanted sex
    unwanted charges
    broken windows
    locked doors
    trembling hopes

    In her second bag
    she carries schizophrenic thoughts
    war tears
    the silhouette of a tropical night
    forgotten dreams
    violent lovers
    painful farewells
    salon kisses
    dried flowers
    suicide attempts
    and the rhythm
    of a Quijote
    she calls son.

    Yes, my mother has two bags
    beneath her eyes
