The most important thing is to choose the right moment for things. When I take too long to do something, I always understand it as a mistake in choosing the moment and not a matter of creative "block". Saying you are not inspired is the same as saying that you started something without knowing what you wanted. Like waking up not knowing why and hoping for something interesting to happen before the day is over. that time has allowed my eyes to see. What really sees is the brain. At the right time I cut a large piece of paper, took my favorite old pencils out of the case, turned on the table light and touched the paper with the graphite tip for the first time this year feeling what I always feel before drawing. A mixture of extreme self-confidence with humility and respect for the blank sheet, also knowing that everything does not depend only on my will.
The first day only served to know how far I was from the monkey. The second day is always much more intense and with a much greater level of attention and focus on specific situations. The objective is to move forward, find the entrance and not the exit. The worst thing is trying to find the exit without knowing that you are not even inside. with the wrong head and the next day I went back to try to change it. 5 more hours just on the animal's head. 4 days and more than 40 hours of work later I knew I was "outside" because that piece of paper gave me back all the energy and life that I transferred to it while drawing.
This is a solitary and fulfilling moment. The absence of doubt is complete. In the end, it made sense for Macaco to have traits that, despite being serious at the same time, make the animal seem like a toy. Catching this animal cost me 4 days away from the 3 people who complete me.
