drawing room: you are now leaving

An illustration I made on the plane while I was flying back home yesterday.
I visited my home town (Mexicali, Baja California, México), stayed at my parents house, saw old friends and current friends and most importantly met up with a person I had not seen for over a year, maybe two... but we've always kept in touch.
We talk almost daily, we email, we chat... we've been best friends for more than 7 years and finally we saw each other's faces again.
I think we realized we might be more than friends.

That's why I found it difficult to leave.
This time, I wasn't sure I wanted to leave.

The quote on the illustration translates into:
"she doesn't want to leave... but she doesn't know how to stay either"

Starbucks Kahlo

"pies para qué los quiero si tengo alas para volar?"
"feet, what do I need them for when I have wings to fly?"
-Frida Kahlo

I did that at the airport in CanCún. I'm flying home for a week, 3 friends are getting married this weekend, can you imagine?
I'm at that point of my life when all my friends are getting married and I'm just getting... ________ fatter, uglier, older?.... feel in the blank with whatever you please.

Anyway.. I thought I'd draw my beloved Frida on my Starbucks cup this time.
Any suggestions for next?

VANS x Huichol capsule

"Possibly one of the coolest Vault collabs we’ve ever done: the Vans x Huichol Capsule. The Huichol tribe lives primarily in the mountainous Jalisco and Nayarit regions of Mexico, and are known for their immediately identifiable art, which blends yarnwork and intricately beaded objects. Vans partnered with Huichol artists to create a limited capsule of hand-beaded and embroidered Classic Slip-On LX and Sk8-Hi LX. Only 360 pairs were made, and they drop on September 20 at select boutique locations. Wear ‘em or hang ‘em on your wall—totally up to you."

drawing room: "eye" believed you

...they make seem like random doodles to you,
but to me.. they are true... 
...they come from my soul,
they speak from my heart,
they live on my mind.

all you need is tape!

I'm always looking for ways to improve my home and decorate it with things I can make myself and of course, with things that don't cost much. I have a lot of wall art, signs, patterns and mixed prints textiles, flowers, mobiles, tassels, jewelry displayed, dream catchers, recycled wine bottles and glass jars used as decorations and/or storage, etc... You can easily add a lot of things without spending a dollar, I know I have.

Anyway, since I got this place, there's a white wall that has been staring at me, begging to be damaged or painted or something, I just never got to it... Luckily for me, yesterday, while I was spending my daily amount of hours on Pinterest; I saw these wall frames and silhouettes made out of washi tape!... so easy! and looks awesome, doesn't it?

I knew I had some black washi tape around so I finally got to it and did something to my wall.
But first, check out the designs that inspired me to do so.

I had a hard time deciding what I wanted to do on my white canvas... a shape, but what?.. a word, but which?... I played with the idea of tracing a mermaid, the word "bitchin'", one of my favorite quotes "la tristesse durera toujours", a random geometric pattern..... until I realized that such wall is the first thing people look at when they walk into my apartment so I thought I'd make a Welcome sign à la ivette:
