Another pencil piece. Done with an HB mechanical pencil because I was actually lying on the bed trying to get some sleep, which of course never came, the good thing its that you dont end buried in pencil shavings, I guess? I was thinking of the King in Yellow in this piece, but I decided against referencing the play on the last minute, because he´s got a skull for a face and the “pallid mask” deserves more love. Maybe I just channelled Ghost Rider after his birthday in Burguer King? Did I ever mention I once envisioned the sigil of astral cockblock during meditation? But that´ s a story for a more civilized time…

Mi querido Junji Ito, ni te imaginas, ni te imaginas… POR CIERTO! Alguien de Asunción tiene el libro ” Psicología y alquimia” de Carl Jung? Necesito prestarlo o alquilarlo por unos dias. Si, ya se que puedo pedirlo por Amazon y que puedo bajarme el PDF, pero odio leer en el kindle. Gracias por adelantado!

"Revelation I" - Pencil on paper. I used to draw these when I had insomnia, I never thought I could use pencil to do elaborate pieces with subtle  marks, until I saw a Ron Lemen DVD and thought "Well, that doesn´t look that hard". I was mistaken, of course…

Gouache study done between jobs. The red dots are there because it was either leaving the blank space or putting some random quote, risking the picture to become some sort of poster motivator. I was thinking something along the lines of “Goaucheating the peasants, Gouacheating the countryside…”, what do you think? Or perhaps something from Elric, I been in an Elric vibe lately.

“…and to this hour the image of Carmilla return to mind with ambiguous alterations—sometimes the playful, languid, beautiful girl; sometimes the writhing fiend I saw in the ruined church; and often from a reverie I have started, fancying I heard the light step of Carmilla at the drawing room door.”
