the boy v.s the tornado

Sketchbook drawing, doodle

I did this sketch a while back november/december 2009 for a workshop I was teaching at CECUT (centro cultural tijuana/tijuana cultural center). The project was to create a parable, methaphor or image that could in fact add to my favorite buddisht proverb"at the end all that matters, is how fully you lived, how fully you loved and how fully you learn to let go".

final drawing/sketch photoshop, wacom tablet

Most students where stump with the idea of comunicating this idea, they had a hard time grasping that you could crete a illustration that was not literal or see say in any sense and still comunicate the idea. After a passionate lecture of letting go of preconceived ideas, notions, reality and inject their concept with imagination...most succeded in creating a good image.

Final Drawing Sumi ink on watercolor paper

 Final Art photoshop, wacom tablet, scanned hand made textures.

So back to the present 2010, I was going through my sketchbook from that time and found this image of a boy v.s. a tornado trowing his paper airplane at it...I stopped and asked myself what does this mean? confronting impending doom, a problem, a disaster, a situation, a opportunity in a game of chance and confront it with a paper airplane wich could be anything depending on what is on the piece of paper that is being throwened at the tornado, a drawing, a wish, a desire, a sigil, a poem, a story, a experience of life...and then I get it, the experince of life, love manifested in a creative way turned into a vehicle to let go.
