Taco stand part II. This time in Polanco in Mexico City.
We went a couple of times to Polanco to eat out. The best place we’ve been to by far was the japanese restaurant called Murakami. The food – sushi, sashimi and other delicacies, were amazing.
Lazy Sunday and I wish I had a taco stand around the corner to get some spicy comfort food.
This is one of the many stands that popped up each night in Malinalco with Tacos, tamales and other things I don´t know the names of, for all the hungry people out there.
No tacos for me tonight. I am off raiding the fridge instead.
1000 followers! Wouldn´t have expected this when I started drawing again less than a year ago. Thank you for your support and encouragement!
This little guy was watching me intensely while I was having lunch at La Casa de Valentina. It is a beautiful coffee-house with delicious food in the center of Malinalco. I can highly recommend it. One of the owners is an artist and the walls are covered with colourful wall art and drawings.
Rainy afternoon on market day in Malinalco. It was rather empty that day, as there was heavy downpour on an off. Even the dogs were looking for shelter under the tarpaulins that covered the market stalls.
One of the avocado sellers at the mercado in Malinalco. I seriously miss my daily avocado and hot guacamole. I miss food with taste in general. Vegetables in Iceland taste pretty much like nothing. Watery at best.
Anyone feels like doing more yoga?
Another one that I started for the Inktober prompt Stretch, but then felt like I had messed up the inking. So I left it until I was bored the other day and I finished it. I don´t think it is that terrible after all.
Now I´m thinking if I should add colourful yoga mats to the other drawings too? What do you think?
Yes, I just discovered the slide show feature.
I originally started drawing this one for the last prompt of Inktober titled slice.
But as the woman has finished eating almost all the cheese, I thought that the drawing did not fit the prompt that well any longer. Therefore, what you get are the leftovers.
I forgot to post the last of my Inktober drawings. After not having much of a social life in October, I went full force into it again since the beginning of November. So I have spent less time at home and more time out and about.
With the last prompt I decided to revisit the surreal landscape (and the man with the hat) of my first Inktober drawing. I know, the shading is all over the place. I was tired.
I really enjoyed the month though. I think I learned a lot in terms of sketching faster and also practiced “creative thinking”. Although in the end I struggled quite a bit, but I think that was more because I was juggling work and university on the side as well. I will try to keep on going with ink every once in a while and not just forget all about it again. I haven´t decided on a new project yet but I have plenty of ideas. So watch this space.
Part 2 of my series titled Cats are Assholes.
I was reminded of the phrase “Das Leben ist kein Ponyhof” (literal translation: Life is not a pony farm) the other day, and thought it is quite fitting here on the wall. It means “Life ain´t easy.”
I’m going for double trouble.
Apparently dog yoga is a thing? have you done it? Somehow I cannot see a dog enjoying it unless you have the right bribes.
I prefer regular yoga. But if I get a dog, I might try this.
Oktober is over and I am behind in posting the last couple of drawings. Because of work and studies I am also still missing the last two prompts. So I will just keep on going.
I realized how cruel this image is, after I googled dogs vs porcupines. So not pretty.
A Halloween inspired scribble. She is chopping watermelons, not heads or pumpkins.
Here is a muddy cake. I quite like them. The more chocolate the better, right?
They were both so drained from playing outside that they needed a break.
Although I am also drained of being sick, which I have been the last couple of days, so this is also my current state…
Self-portrait. I do not bake for a reason. Enjoy your cake. Nailed it.
