The mental effort of more than 12 hours a day of working on the drawing and theorizing about it for a long period sometimes exhausts the senses, paradoxically stimulates them but at the same time weakens them. // El esfuerzo mental de más de 12 horas diarias de trabajo en el dibujo y teorizar sobre él por un largo periodo a veces agota los sentidos, paradójicamente los estimula pero al mismo tiempo los debilita.

A child draws or paints not expecting for a payment, his payment is already there, the result on the paper. A child doesn’t want to develope a technique in a perfect way, he is so authentic and free. Sometimes as adults we try to look perfect and show an awesome image of ourselves. In this book through these works I try not to look that “awesome” that’s why I present studies or just unfinished or sketchy drawings where you can find grids and not well erased areas. You will find finished works as well but what I want to say is not that I’m so modest, just that this is part of a process or maybe it is all that I can and even if my abilities only let me reach this level, at least I knew I enjoyed it much making them. Of course I’d love to draw or paint like old masters and modern masters and have an absolute control over the lines and color. At the core it is a search that touches a very intimate personal question: what is the sense of our existence.

I wonder if the art of drawing should be defined under some strict rules or not. This question could also be asked about Art. The point is that I draw because I’ve done it since childhood and I’ve always liked it. I draw not precisely thinking of creating art but because there is a special and uninterested joy in it, it is more similar to the way I know I should eat to feed my body, so I draw as a natural need. A need that doesn’t make of me an amazing artist but that pushes me up to imagine, to represent, to emulate, to think of how I could catch some of the beauty that appears in front of me, but not also the beauty, as a little child I didn’t think of big aesthetic concepts, I just wanted to draw what called my attention or what I considered amazing or just the world around. Even as an adult I can say that some of this still persists: the world of what we admire, love, enjoy, expect, dream, comes to our imagination and becomes the raw material for what later will be called artwork.
