Shut up! & Interview at Artsprojekt

Digital Illustration.

Shut the fuck up by Mario Sánchez Nevado

Shut the fuck up

Haven’t you ever had that period of your life in which you just wished everybody to shut their mouths up, but you though that losing your modals was not the correct step to take? Yeah, more or less we all have felt that way at some point, and more than once. Sometimes it’s not caused because of something boring, but just from things you don’t want to hear, know or learn, but they keep on their endlessly blabbering. I’m kinda feeling that way from the nonsense-ness of the world nowadays, how it’s evolving, how everything is getting destroyed and how everybody is turning as inteligent as an unicellular lifeform… I would like all the words that could reach my ear were honest, interesting and desired ones. This image is dedicated to all of you who feel that way sometimes.
When I’m about of having that kind of situations, I remember this image and I laugh inside. I hope I’m not the only one who see the fun part (:

Note: The sentence in spanish could be translated as “Mount & bike”.
Maybe more paintings like this one will come. I’ve got a lot of sketches with this same character and, silly me that I didn’t notice it before, it’s something I should had developed before because it’s my most recurrent sketching character, but I never did anything serious about it. Some of the sketches are portraying direct-speaking concepts and are quite ironic, which I like. Let’s see what happens, I can’t wait to start painting the next one (:

In other news, I was interviewed in Artsprojekt. You can read the full interview clicking here (:
