Hi guys, how've you been?
Here I am, trying to be more active when it comes to doing art.. anyway.

Wanted to let you know I've put up a facebook page for my works, so feel free to check it out.

Some people asked me to make some more videos of how I work, and the truth is there are a couple more I made some time ago, but they're not on dA because of the music on those :paranoid:

So, on the FB page I'll be posting them, and maybe some unfinished stuff and who knows what else.. I guess I'll se what happens.

See ya guys, take care! :aww:

ArtCova's facebook page: www.facebook.com/pages/ArtCova…

Hola gente, como van?
Yo acá ando, tratando de estar mas activo en lo que respecta al 'arte' :P

Quería hacerles saber que armé una página en féisbuc para mi laburo, así que pueden pegarse una vuelta y ver.

Un par de personas me pidieron que suba mas videos de cómo trabajo, y la verdad es que hay un par de videos más, viejitos ya, pero no están en dA por la música que les puse :paranoid:
Asi que en la pág. de FB los voy a ir posteando, capaz que algunos laburitos sin terminar y andá a saber qué otras cosas.. Veremos qué pasa.

Cuidensé, nos vemos :aww:


Ah, si alguien está en Rosario, el 28 de Mayo voy a tocar con la banda.

My very good friend angelitonegro was awesome enough to get a personal interview to the very well known band Ok Go.
This is not an easy task, as some may think, so please take a few minutes and check it out, it's worth it. ^^

Find it on angelitonegro's journal here: angelitonegro.deviantart.com/j…

Give me a path,
a short-cut, detour
a way of being sure
and able.

Give me a reason
a single, convincing ground
to not fall to the sound
of the title.

Two Years

Journal Entry: Mon Jan 18, 2010, 5:13 AM
Today it's been two years since I joined this place, and it was only a couple of days after I got into digital painting.
I've learned and grew up a lot as a painter in that time.*(see below the box)
I've met amazing artists, amazing people, and I'm really lucky that some of them have become really, and I mean really, good friends to me.

I got to say thanks, guys. For all the support and your words from time to time. Some of you, being there from the beginning.

I'll be uploading a new portrait soon, probably. Meanwhile, you can read this (again, maybe): artcova.deviantart.com/art/Tim… Did you know I write sometimes? hehe.

See you, people. Keep doing art.


*If you wanna know what I mean, check these: artcova.deviantart.com/art/Efe… / artcova.deviantart.com/art/Kei…

No Subject (iveness)

Journal Entry: Sat Jan 9, 2010, 10:17 PM

Deep in the cold
the answer is fading away.
Keep in mind, the realms of day.
The real, the lie,
the last light of day.

Freeze in a mold
The answer is melting away.
Keep in touch, an hour a day.
The fear, desire,
the last drop of rain.

As some of you should know, some of you won't, and some are reading this because of it, (new watchers, hi there :aww: ) some days ago I had another Daily Deviation, this time for 'Dreamscape'artcova.deviantart.com/art/Dre… so, thanks archanN for that feature, and angelitonegro for the suggestion. Besote, negri :)

I know I've been quite inactive for some time now, and I'm sorry about that.. Life issues.
But I'll be trying to catch up, and answer all those comments, eventually. =P

By the way, and now that I see you.. what kind of work would you like to see from me next?

See ya around, guys. Have fun.

Morning

Journal Entry: Mon Oct 5, 2009, 5:03 PM
When I woke up, the first thing I saw was the yellow paint dripping down to the floor from the Van Gogh reproduction hanging on the wall, and I thought you were gone.
I turned off the alarm clock trying to silence the morn that so cruelly stabbed the room, but the silence was more violent and disturbing than before. That stupid sensation of being about to vomit your soul out and not doing so.
Looking for the trace of your footsteps melting on the carpet, I sank in the gaps left between each twirl of your lingering perfume, knowing myself to be out and away from everything, just in time to go through the memory of jello and get lost, completely disappearing from my own memory.

Deep

Journal Entry: Sun Jul 19, 2009, 4:06 PM
I'll write something deep today.

I'll write something dark. The dense, claustrophobic and oppresive environment that holds hundreds of anguished treasures and memories long forgotten under the coarse spiderwebs set up by time.

I'll write something deep today.

I'll write about the asphixiating and relentless humidity that crushes, aberrant, the motionless dust that buries every grim corner of this vast solitude.
A deposit of stories condemned to a fate under lock and key.

I'll write something deep today, and it goes like this:

"Basement"

:P

Drops

Journal Entry: Sat Jun 20, 2009, 12:07 AM
Drops

A drop.
Adrift in the emptiness
A brief ripple in time, a sudden slip in the echo of a frozen voice.

Two drops.
Shattering the mirror in which I stand, just tearing apart the mild instances of a vanished smile.

Three drops.
A tree drops its frail desire, a tear caught by the sick wind that seeks the wings of a featherless, impervious soul.
Fed her least sour hours, a minute prelude to a broken second amidst in the silence, the slowest motion of a notion unknown.

Four drops.
A decimated memory.
Rain is pouring down.

As artcova approached the panel, the murmur of the crowd got dimmer. He placed the microphone and spoke.

-First of all... -he cleared his throat.- I want to say thanks for a new Daily Deviation, this time for "I'm So Cool"... I'd like to dedicate this... award? Can I call it like that...?- He looked around for a gesture of approval but there was none.
-Well... especially for my family, for the inconditional support along all these years, I... - he wiped the sweat in his forehead with the back of his hand and went on.- to the DeviantArt staff... to savagebinn obviously, for featuring it... umm, to the almost 600 watchers that follow my work, leaving comments and all... I dunno... to Energizer, for the batteries I used in my digital pen... I'm so thrilled... A big Thank You, really.

The crowd exploded with a warm applause and cheering and after some seconds, people began to stand up and prepared to leave. He closed his eyes for a bit and said:
- I also want to say in this special occasion... -everyone sat again and some looked at each other awkwardly.- being Earth's Day and all of that... FROGS. They need heir place too.

Someone in the back of the Hall clapped furiously and suddenly stopped.

-Frog has been a species constantly exploited by Man, and this image is a definitive proof that they deserve a break.

-What the fuck..? -
said someone in the third row of seats.- He's stoned, like that emoticon he made. - another person said.

-Through ages - he proceeded.- frogs have been tremendously mistreated, and not only thrown away from backyard's pools or their guts ripped off on dissection tables in expenses of a devaluated education! Also their IMAGE was punished in stupid cartoons and videogames where their only fate in the end was to be squashed by a bus or devoured by hordes of ferocious crocodiles!

artcova's speech was gaining intensity while several bots appeared on the stage.

-And what to say about 'La Rana René' known by you as Kermit, the Frog? The poor guy lived his entire life with a human hand stuck up his ass with the sole excuse of amusing the kids!! WAKE UP people! It is time to change History!

Four bots threw themselves over trying to bring down and get him out of that place.

-LEMMEGO! Dammit! I have rights...! I have lefts too! ALEX! Help me out here, mate!

alsebka was sitting in the crowd and quickly said:- I don't know that guy, seriously. He paints, I'm a photographer...

-Tachy-on and fourteenthstar are two of my watchers!!! -he screamed in isanity. It seemed like foam was coming out his mouth.
-I'll make a poll to prove this is abuse of authority, you HEAR!? Well... I don't have a sub, but... I'LL GET ONE!

As the bots reduced and pushed him to the ground, alsebka walked to them and took a photograph.
-Now, this is gonna get me a DD... -he said and ran off from there.

Finally artcova was taken away and people began to leave while commenting about the events.
bluem00n was one of the last to leave. She shook her head and said:

-He seemed to be such a cool guy...
:#1: :faint: :dance:

What a way of starting the day... :D

Thank you so much, savagebinn!
