Matrioshka!

Hace unos meses un amigo artista de Macedonia me mostro un trabajo que hizo para la universidad donde estudia y el titulo del trabajo era matrioshka. Le pregunto ¿Que es Matrioshka? Me contesta que son unas munhecas de madera de origen ruso. Hice un google search y cuando las vi pues dije -"ahhh las que se meten unas dentro de otras" [todo en english porque el no sabe mucho espanhol.. aya pasan las novelas mexicanas en espanhol y le ponen subtitulos en su idioma haha... go figure...] y recorde unos barrilitos que tenia de plastico que eran asi mismo cuando era pequenha.

Hoy otra muchacha artista de Romania [su nombre en la pagina es juststupid] que dibuja y tiene unos personajes bien unicos hizo un dibujo y utlizo tambien las matrioshkas como base. Lo unico que hizo lo de see, hear, talk no evil theme con personas en las ilustraciones pero el mismo estilo de las matrioshkas.

Ahora hoy despues de eso me puse a dibujar a ver si me salian las tales matrioshkas y pues hice algo ahi con mis skull pero ehh no se como que se me fue la mano en los detalles haha me fui en un viaje y me volvi loca parece. Anyways... aqui esta la info y mi matrioshka [que fracaso haha].
