Inspiration Day: Xul Solar

Weather: cold, windy and rainy.

This week the weather was just perfect, just the way I like it... with all nature dancing in the cold wind and inspiration coming down on me with every raindrop :) But I my throat aches!
Anyways, it was a good week, I went with my Drawing class IV (from Uni) to the Natural Science Museum (here in La Plata, Buenos Aires) and it was really awesome. I've always loved going to the museum, and drawing and taking pictures there was something I was longing to do for a while. Bees, beatles, butterflies, birds... I love drawing fauna, it's like, don't know, just fun to do it and it kind of teaches me a lot about figures and body structure.
It was a good week also because I finally decided what to do (regarding my life and likes and etc); so, next year I'm gonna start an other new career: "Political Science and International relations" which will let me develop the social side of me I was always eager to express (not sure if that is the right word!). And, that I want to take Fashion designing more seriously and make a living out of it by designing Prêt à Porter and a casual brand with t-shirts, shirts and hoodies alone (more like Ready to wear).

Hum... the inspiration for this "Inspiration Day" is an argentinian artist named Xul Solar which is not a recent discovery but I am digging in his work (homework for Uni) and I really love his vanguardist way of painting. He worked mainly with worlds and creatures he invented himself, flags related to argentine nationalism and some other cool stuff.
I leave you the link to his Museum (for he was one of our greatest artist back in the early 20th century) if you wanna know more about him.

My latest acquisitions... aren't they cute?? ♥
-the moon stone ring (made by an artisan friend) and some hair clips-

So, this is everything for now.
It's rainging heavily outside and thunders and lightnings are all shaking the sky... I love it!
Have a great weekend!

Today I've learn: pizza and chatting 'til 7 am with friends is so bloody good!
Kisses and raindrops.
