my friend and companera Dalia has turned another page in the calendar. i w’d always pretend to forget her b’day and claim i thought it was Bastille Day, July 14. in fact, she shares a b’day with one her idols, Ernesto Che Guevara who w’d have turned 89 this year. here he’s pictured with two of our favorites, Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir.
Dalia is shown taking the oath of office as President of SEIU Local 1000.
the last photo is of the Zapatistas having breakfast in Sanborn near Las Bellas Artes and the Alameda. She and i had breakfast there several times when we visited Mexico City way back when…though the scene pictured is much older. she was/is a great friend.
been drawing fairly consistently since trip to Houston in December 2016. inspired by calligraphy, aboriginal art, various patterns. trying to learn to draw faces. w’d especially like to feel comfortable with 3/4 views. using youtube videos for instruction. problem: don’t practice near enough. the blown out tire happened on Highway 41 from Ok City to St. Louis. didn’t lose control of car but tire kaput. this was my 2nd drawing. taught me that i ought to do 2nd, many versions of interesting subjects. make different choices when i do that. the drawing based on chinese year of the horse calligraphy & the nestuke demon inspired drawings most recent.
