I drew this one back in the Spring of 2011. I don't have a story behind this one, I don't even have a name for her. I just sat down on my table one afternoon and started drawing, finished it the same day.
Only five people have seen this drawing so far, and they all loved her.
Suggestions for her name are most welcome.
The name Roberta lingered in my mind while I was drawing this one, but then I finally decided to call her Trani because I was listening to 'Trani' (Kings of Leon) while I was breathing life into this beautiful girl.
I love this drawing very much and if you ask me 'why?', I really don't have an explanation for it. Maybe its her eyes, or maybe it's that depressing sense of loneliness that she is experiencing that attracts my attention.
Alas! If only she could hear me.
"I would love to see you smile. Someday."
The last time I travelled, I was on an eastbound flight and we flew really close to the Himalayas. Damn it! there's no point in talking about it because words are too small, too meaningless even to describe it. It was so 'majestic' even from that distance, I wonder what it would be like to stand at the foot and just gaze at it. Nepal is definitely going down on my next vacation plan. I've had a glimpse of the Himalayas and now I really want to see it 'upclose and personal'.
Time to get back in the air again.
My days are numbered.
I've been reading Charles Baudelaire's 'Les Fleurs du mal' every morning for the past couple of weeks. Call me profane, call me blasphemous but I actually enjoy reading 'banned' poetry. After all it's just poetry.
