Moleskine: La Loba by erebus-odora Moleskine: La Loba by erebus-odora
As I've already told you, nowadays I live kinda... permanently hugging my Moleskine sketchbooks (so you can actually see the slight disturbance in the centre of the image: it's a drawing in a A5 sketchbook, two pages used). So this one was drawn at one of my evenings at my job. I started this, as my picture of Ragnarök (you know, that wolf-eating-the-moon stuff), but then decided against it.

My wolf isn't some mighty Fenrir. She's la loba, a she-wolf, who is just a bit supernatural and really, really curious. She won't eat the moon. She just... observes, like a kid, born yesterday.

This one is weird again, I know. But mind this: I have too much work to do and too little time to sleep. My constant nightmares are weirder. And I do need to release some demons out of my own thoughts.

Good point is that my demons are mostly kind, though...

Have you already read the book of Clarissa Pinkola Estés " Women who run with wolves "? Your Loba reminds me there a lot..This symbol could make a beautiful tattoo ;)

I find your drawings from your Moleskine sketchbook very inspiring. I really like the textures again. I find that your illustrations could be in a children book.

What you are saying about la loba observing a kid just born makes me think about the song "Hijo de la Luna" (there is a spain [link] and french version of this song) singing by Mecano. I think it is because of the baby, the moon and the night atmosphere. The song is talking about a gipsy woman who looks for the big love and who asks the moon to offer him to her. The moon says to the woman that when she will have met this love, and when she will have her first child, she will have to give him to her. Later, she will find a husband who she loves. They will have a child with grey eyes and white skin, so the father will think that his wife has betrayed him with another man. Consequently, considering dishonored, he will kill her with a knife and abandones the child at the top of a hill. To finish, it is the moon which keeps and protects the child. It is a love and sad story.

La Loba - я встречала это имя у Эстес в "Бегущей с волками". Там шикарная легенда рассказана и интерпретирована)))

Ыыы... спасибо))
Кроме шуток - у меня такой завал что дома, что на работе, что я на твою смс до сих пор не сподобилась ответить. Потому и рисуется что-то такое, глазозаворачивающее, что СЛИШКОМ много всего навалилось.

Завал - это фигово, да. Как я тебя понимаю... Радует, что как правило это заканчивается ;) так что давай, разгребайся и пошли гулять ))
