Home Away From Home

Blog

Do you remember last summer when I was looking for a room to rent from Toronto for the Autumn? I do. It felt like a hard task since the real estate market is booming: everybody want’s to move to Toronto. But thanks to good luck angels I found a room before I it was time to move.

The home I found from Toronto was welcoming from the start, filled with good energy. My roommate became Canadian sister for me showing where to get the best deals on fresh fruits.

In these two drawings I tried to capture the spirit of my Toronto home. These are also home assignments for the Drawing for 3D animation class. The aim was to study light and reflections. I used different paper but same col-erase pencil in both of them. The first drawing is from the backyard. I always imagined two poets sitting on these chairs gossiping about the essence of life. And in the 2nd one you can see our home mascot: Tito and his eyes full of love.
