This is Chejov, a Wolf Bear kind, son of a second idea I had during one of mine classes.
For those who don't know me. My name is Tassi, or you can call me "Tas". I am an Art Student from Brasil, and actually,
I'm on an interchange program, living in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and Im going to stay here for almost 6 months.
It have been pretty good, I like the sun, the spirit and the movement of the city, the art route they have. I love the large streets, the weather, the cordiality, the touch they have with their past. But in a little way, all of the time I got a way home to my own country, just looking by these streets and their people. I know Sao paulo, or even the city I'm from don't have this space, this same french architecture. I know that in my country the people don't have this same faces. But, while I put my eyes on then, I'm pretty sure I can't do it before putting my own eyes on then all. I mean, I put my childhood and growing memories in it.
Well, the fact is: After living here, by almost 3 months, studying the castellano language and doing some classes of cinema, I'm already getting the enthusiastic back before a long time of adaptation.
I started to produce again, and specially because I discovered it lasted me only a few ways to get in touch with my family and friends. I mean, I'm discovering how is it to be in another space and time of action from the people you love. I discovered how I am in a dependence with the words, letters, alphabetic signals, images between my people and I, and how I should start using the means I had in my own hands to solve this problem.
I started producing new drawings, new objects and Ive been also writing a lot.
And one of the things I stated to do was some animals, exactly plush animals. I decided to do then to help me while I'm living here.
And for those, who don't know my art and illustration work, It's really strange for me to don't think in animals while I'm doing something. This is a little illustration of what I'm saying:
So that, I decided
to start work on those animals images, maybe they could help with a problem I brought here to Buenos Aires. I'm without a computer since those days I was leaving Brasil, I was robbed there, and till nowadays I could not buy another computer.
The photos were taken by my friend "Flor", who is helping me out with the blog, photos and her friendship.
