1. I am a social monster.
2. Some "art":
These two are for Nick magazine. The mag is cool. Working for kids thrills me. I feel free to do whatever I want to, and when it's about children, you can experiment more. Grownups are square. Working for Televisa, I don't know why, thrills me, too. After many, many years, I'm back in there. I used to illustrate for Tú, Eres, and Eres Niños, and working in a mag where cats like Johnny Ryan have published makes me feel fine.
3. I couldn't mention this before, but in this bi-month's Metapolitica (ish 58) you can read my piece on Norman Mailer. The article is called "Norman Mailer, un moralista demasiado franco".
well, they're basically the same, but there are some important differences between them. I won't tell the whole story on why and how this happened, but for the text for Metapolítica I was able to read El castillo en el bosque and some other books by Mailer, whereas for the one for Repli I just couldn't.
Anyway, I feel proud of this text, it's become one of my favs. Hope you can read it.
4. Well, it looks like I've finally found some space for posting. On holidays, we hung out like there was no tomorrow. We spent every other day in a bar, cantina or party. We met all kinds of people. It was funny to meet some resentful guys like I hadn't met for years. The kind I thought were extinct now. The moment she knew I write about/draw comics, a girl was trying to preach me with her absolutely outdated Mattelart/Dorfman kind of ideas. Pure bullshit. Old hippies. On the other hand, I came across some guys I hadn't seen for ages, such as Alfonso Morcillo and Mauricio Bares. It amazed me.
5. I feel like posting in English. If you want to comment, you can do it in Spanish. It's just that I feel comfortable in doing so.
6. Comadre: soy de lo pior.
