Doloroso nacimiento by popeyewong Doloroso nacimiento by popeyewong
(English at bottom)
Ya llegó Septiembre, y con eso, llegó también la nueva imagen del Día del Grito, de verdad una tradición en mi portafolio. Como es parte también de esa tradición, la musa que ha inspirado esta nueva obra es mi bellísima amiga, Lisa Del Toro. De verdad muchas gracias, Lisa, por esa inspiración que has traído a mi trabajo durante tantos años. Brindo por esta tradición que espero dure mucho tiempo más.

Este año, el pin-up del Día de Independencia además de reflejar el estilo actual con el que estoy pintando, también refleja mis sentimientos hacia la situación actual de México. No necesito especificar a qué situación me refiero, son tantos los flancos siendo atacados, que no tiene caso ahondar en un problema específico. No está en mis posibilidades el cambiar el rumbo ni el destino de México, pero si hay algo que puedo hacer, es expresar mis sentimientos por medio de la pintura.

"Me dueles México, me dueles bastante... porque eres parte de mí, así como lo soy yo de ti. Siempre lo he sido y siempre lo seré."

De nuevo, gracias a todos por su apoyo. Mi trabajo, mi arte, no tendría la misma capacidad de crecimiento sin esa ayuda. Estaré muy pronto de vuelta, con una nueva pintura, con un tema más alegre, demostrando que siempre hay esperanza, y con eso vendrá un nuevo día. Hasta la próxima.

September is here, and along with it, the new image celebrating Mexican Independence Day, a traditional part of my portfolio. Also, as part of that tradition, the muse that inspired this year's work is my beautiful friend, Lisa Del Toro. Thank you so much, Lisa, for all the inspiration you've brought to my work during the past several years. Cheers for this tradition, a tradition I hope will last for many many more years.

This year, the Mexican Independence Day's pin-up reflects not only my current painting style, but also my feelings regarding Mexico's current situation. I don't need to specify to which situation I'm talking about, there are so many fronts being under attack at this moment, that it would be pointless to get into detail about a specific problem. I don't have the capabilities of changing Mexico's path nor its destiny, but if there's something I can do, is to express my feelings through my art.

"I hurt for you Mexico, I do hurt a lot... because you are part of me, same as I am part of you. I have always been and I will always be."

Again, many thanks to all of you for your support towards my work. My art wouldn't have the same growth potential without your help. I'll be back pretty soon, with a new painting, featuring a lighter mood, showing that there is always hope, and therefore a new day will come. See you next time.
~Pops.
