Ink drawing on white drawing paper

He is an escapologist like Harry Houdini was; he has a limited time to get out of the wooden cage in which his body is enclosed…
He could easily escape contorting his body and opening the locks, as it has done many times before but this time, everything is different…
“The escapologistt is in love” and does not know what to do to escape from this divine trap and so, no matter the time running on his sandglasses he pluck daisies: she loves me, she loves me not … .
Possibly is best cage anyone can ever visit in his lifetime…cage of love…


Tinta negra sobre papel blanco

Él es un escapista como lo fue Harry Houdini; el tiene un tiempo limitado para salir de la caja de madera en la que está encerrado su cuerpo…
Él podría salir fácilmente, contorsionando su cuerpo y abriendo los candados, como lo ha hecho ya muchas otras veces pero esta vez, todo es diferente… “El escapista está enamorado” y él no sabe qué hacer para salir de esta divina trampa y por eso, sin importarle el tiempo que pasa en su reloj de arena, deshoja los pétalos de una Margarita diciendo: me quiere,…no me quiere…
Posiblemente, esta es la mejor trampa de la vida: la trampa del amor…

I was born in Lima Peru, raised in Nicaragua since I was 3 years old then: In 1982, I move to Florida (USA).
My Birth date is August 24 of 19-something.
My Father: (Nicaraguan).
My Mother: (Peruvian).

I paint, because I am a poet who writes his poetries with strokes…
…I paint because I am the lover who crosses your soul with warm colors…

    OK, I’ll admit: I don’t have a clue about the explanation or the explanation of the explanation but it’s super creativity and as original as it gets. I just hope he either gets to “She loves me not” and dies quietly or to “She loves me” fast enough for it to matter! :-O

  • …ha,ha,ha
    I’ll admit: I don’t have a clue about your comment but, is originall creativy

    I love this ink drawing, very appealing and cleverly drawn. The hair details are great and i like how you’ve drawn his boney back… The whole image plays tricks on the eyes and how you’ve weaved the limbs is very clever. Well done mago :-)
