Happy New Year.! Here’s a drawing I did yesterday (last year!) of Che scratching on the glass door to try and get out. Che and Tesla are favorite drawing topics of mine. They are part of my new book, Magical Years: Memories & Sketches, a collection of 43 of my sketches in pen and ink and reed. The book is a limited edition of 100 hardbound copies, signed and numbered. It is available from Amazon for $45 : https://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/0971945896 .
For a limited time it is available for $30 from PALH (email firstname.lastname@example.org or PM me).
To those in the Philippines, please note that the book can be available there in late Janaury, but please pre-order by contacting email@example.com; the book can be mailed to you via LBC in the Philippines.
Praise for Magical Years: Memories & Sketches
“ ‘Magic’ is the key word in the art of Cecilia Manguerra Brainard. Every drawing transports you to a different world and a different time, and you cannot ever come back unchanged.” ~ Tony Perez, Playwright, Novelist, & Painter
“Drawings are often ignored as being mere steps to painting, but with Cecilia Brainard you take them on their own — as visual notes, windows to memory and history.” ~ Ambeth R. Ocampo, Historian
(PALH 2020), 37 pages, book size is 8 X 8, hardbound
