the disembodied beauty of a calder
latest updates: sculpture
I saw this statue at the Metro Police Park, just right behind one of their main headquarter in the Northwest area of the suburban Las Vegas. The whole park is dedicated to the fallen law enforcement who have served in Las Vegas since the late 1890s. The statue is pretty interesting, showing a metal sculpture of our typical American Mascot.. The Bald Eagle. The Eagle is holding a shield (or a police badge?) with an interesting wrap-around of the American Flag. Also, there is a three triangular torch pillars with rustic flames (Olympics anyone?).
Done in ballpoint pen, watercolour pencil, and waterbrush
My first entry on my moleskine for the international maoleskine exchange (group 50) has to do with the figures I’ve been drawing for some time. Ilha do Ferro is a community in the interior of my home state, here in Brazil. I love these pieces that represent ex-votos (“milagros” in Spanish) and I am always adding new symbols to them. They are women figures and are so beautiful. These little statues are carved on wood and their dresses do not have these patterns. I love drawing various patterns to them. I am a kind of fashion stylist to these “women”
This was made with watercolor pencil, indian ink and metalic golden pen.
Got outta work early yesterday and checked out the Murakami show at the BK museum. Was compelled to draw some of his sculptures which were pretty insane. The last one was about 20′ high and I think had some sort of mind control power.
