cute animals: baby elephant

Hi friends,

I’ve been absent from this blog since I was in Argentina. I went for my brother’s wedding and stayed for a few more days to visit some friends and family. It was fun but I came back totally exhausted!¬†Now, I’m glad to be back at home and returning to my routine.

Today I want to share one illustration I made for a friend of mine who lives in Brooklyn, NY.

This baby elephant, who is now part of my cute animals collection, will be adding its cuteness to a baby girl nursery.

9 years of blogging… Wow!

I started my first blog in November 14th, 2005.

A lot has changed since then. First of all, the language. From Spanish to English.

I’m no longer using Blogspot (then¬†Blogger) neither Tumblr, I’m now using WordPress.

I’m not only a blogger now because I also, and mostly, use my blog platform to share my illustrations.

I’m not living in Buenos Aires anymore, neither I’m single nor a student. I moved to Brooklyn, NY; San Francisco, CA and now I’m in San Bruno, CA. I became a Psychologist and a Project Manager Specialist; I’m¬†married and¬†-the most significant part of my life- I’m a mom now.

Being a blogger got me together with some new people who even became friends. That was good.

Even my nickname has changed. As many others, I couldn’t resist to look at my past posts¬†so I, once, deleted my entire blog.

Anyhow, I managed to keep the records of that first blog. So here it goes, that post from November 14th, 2005, an ode to Buenos Aires (in spanish, sorry!).

Comienzo este blog con una dedicatoria a la ciudad en la que armé mi lugar -al menos hasta ahora- Buenos Aires.

Desde que recuerdo mi entrada a la adolescencia, siempre supe que una parte de mi vida trascurriría en esta ciudad, algo de eso que llaman destino, eso que te está esperando o tan solo una elección.

Y Buenos Aires tiene “ese no se qu√©…”Buenos Aires es invierno, es mi ventana, la √ļltima y la m√°s linda, con un balc√≥n con sol, un caf√© en la mano y alg√ļn tema nacional y algo de ese sentimiento de por un ratito sentirse ser parte de algo, en este caso de un pa√≠s llamado Argentina.

Buenos Aires es mi casa; es una copa de malbec y un cigarrillo… un tango y esa sensaci√≥n imposible de expresar en palabras, aquella que tenemos quienes vivimos solos en alg√ļn momento de nuestra vida.Buenos Aires fue fr√≠o, fue lluvia y calor abrasador de cemento y subte, fue conocerme. Tanto as√≠ que disfruto tanto lo que m√°s voy a extra√Īar de ella… ese oto√Īo que me seca la piel y la primavera que me da alergia, pero que florece en las caras de la gente cansada, gente que trabaja, en todas partes y con trabajos ins√≥litos.

¬ŅQu√© me llevo? Mi cuerpo, mi alma, mi subjetividad forjada en estos siete a√Īos de esta ciudad, por siete a√Īos m√≠a.

Me llevo el amor de mis amigos, mis experiencias en este lugar y tu aroma:: aire de invierno, de nostalgia y humedad.
