Hot vs. Cute: The HC Balance


, , , , , , , , , , ,


Drawings, illustrations, caricatures those things that I hang on my instagram and that I know I’m not the best at doing them, I guess it’s like I always say with my music “- It’s not what I do for music, it’s what music does for My guess is that it happens the same way with my drawings especially when I draw Girls, and if I already know what many should be thinking, that’s why I only try to draw celebrities or famous people in general, although recently I broke that rule, one single Once drawing an unknown is not wrong.

The HC Balance:

This is a post quite identified with the shape and superficial  in part, let’s talk about the balance HC or as you all can seen in the figure is a quantitative representation and in percentages of the Hot (sexy, sexually attractive) or the Cute (cute, adorable but like when you see a puppy of your favorite animal), the cute almost always comes from the face but can come from a set of traits, qualities or attitudes, of course the readings of that balance are subjective, Someone that I consider closer to the other Cute side can see more towards the Hot and so on. Well when I take the time to draw a girl it is because I think that her HC balance leans more to the cute side, that is, it is quite an experience to sit down to contemplate those images or to hold them mentally from my memories, I feel that rejoicing very similar to that peace that is in the now, to draw them is like an “excuse” to stop to contemplate them, that’s why the trip is more than the destiny; I do not understand how I feel something so sublime from something so superficial, surely there is the name of a disease, disorder or pathology for that type of behavior.

I made these sort of definitions of concepts that you already know in Europe and USA but in South America at least my generation I don’t know how to explain it but we don’t have a word for Cute I mean some people use the word “Linda” in spanish which is the closest equivalent or translation but some people just think that “linda” is somehow beneath Gorgeous and beautiful all in one scale

In my instagram you can see the failed attempts less distant from the starting point because although it is true that what I do are caricatures, there is a limit to everything especially in that network where talented people expose their work. As for the celebrities that I have tried to draw, I don’t feel very sure mentioning them, I would not like people judging as “- You really think this looks like Cara Delevingne?” And comments of that style, but I have improved with time, perhaps for the next I still dare to mention them, although there was a girl who reacted to a caricature I made of her, Camille is a blogger basically said that she liked the drawing, but she did not follow me back 😭

Real life girls:

I used to call non-celebrity mortals, and the truth it seems quite stupid I do not know why do I wrote it, from time to time I find in my environment a girl that I would like to draw, I do not know if I explained it well but there are attractive girls or women in different places but finding one with the indicated HC balance is not seen every day, in order, it is difficult to ask for authorization if you do not know it previously because if you open a first verbal contact expressing your need or your intention to draw it asking permission you will find some resistance already Who thinks that you are doing the court and maybe it could work but already to the second you are the one of the “pick up line” of the cartoonist . The thing is that in my university I didn’t want to make bigger the trail of eccentric acts that I already had being an autistic who stayed too long in that place, I already had a rule of not even trying to draw girls from there.

I Broke my own rule:

Maybe if you could see her in person you would understand why I broke it (my rule) the thing is that I was about to finish subjects (or however you call it when you finish all your classes) and I was very exposed to this girl, my last semester was a 3 subjects one all in a day and in 2 of them I have to see her. What could I say about her, I like the color of her eyes to super simplify her, her hair  her choices in clothes, from those vans she uses and her general style from head to toe, you do not know if she is following a new trend or is creating it.

The only time we crossed word was because she had to play Chess against me in a kind of tournament that the teacher improvised and I did not expect it,  while looking at her pieces on the board and my eyes stared by accident on her blouse for few seconds  (- not adjusted, no cleavage, no transparency, I was lost more in the colors of his clothes), I  was lost for a moment I do not know how many seconds they were, I reacted when I saw her covering her chest trying to close her sweater as if I were looking at her breasts, but damn it if they are minimal!, damn it, my reaction was to take my hand to my eyes 😳, my plan before that error was, not look her in the eye and win the game that in case you are asked I won it When I look into her eyes it was like when you look at an incandescent light and then you close your eyes you only see a glow of color in the dark or an effect more like radiation. The thing is that with all that added to my rule that I didn’t want to break, the conditions were not there to speak to her, maybe I had to cut with sticks and chips  For goods and all and talk to her  but it would have been more awkward  and she wouldn’t have believed me, I guess that drawing it is as a claim more to myself as saying “-you are fucking cute girl” I do not expect anything just wanted to say it “-you are fucking cute girl, sorry if I bothered you with my voluntary and involuntary visual contacts” but do not worry I will not tag her, I do not follow her in any social networks, in the end they are only superficial things that surely she has to listen to frequently.

Finally all women forgive me if you found the “Balance HC”a little offensive but I don’t think I invented it, I suppose I heard it somewhere and I don’t remember the source, the thing is that they are two forms of attraction, the factor Hot tends to perish faster in time or in our perceptions and the Cute factor can be eternal if you want or maybe not so much but if it prevails more in time and perceptions than its counterpart.

I could make a huge list of excuses trying to explain why I never talked to her before of after but that would be something like “- bla bla bla  Im a pussy”. At the beginning I wasn’t so interested on her it was like an infectious virus or something, but Anyway what do you think Was I a pussy or not? Let me know in the comments below.

This is the drawing that broke my own rule



Who the hell is gavilander?


, , , , , , ,



Gavilander as a word comes from the mix of two nicknames –> gavilan + vander = gavilander, two towns one nick name per town so I wanted to mix or blend both in one word, I think that it sounds good, a bit longer I must say (11 letters) but it doesn’t feel like an 11 letters word at least not pronouncing it in Spanish, I wonder how would it sound in English or how would they pronounce it, they don’t call by that name (gavilander), they call me Vander, Van, Gavs or by my real name I don’t care and Im missing the point here.

Initially Gavilander it supposed to be the name of a band, I know its quite egocentric to call a rock band with the Nickname of one member but let face it is an awesome name, but I never get to the point where I or we were ready as band itself , However the band thing didn’t happen but I keep doing music on my own so I keep the name for myself as a musician an then for my others activities as freelancer.

The bird that you see in my logo is hack or a sparrow hack in Spanish “gavilan” that’s why you see it on the logo and in this case you see the UK flag on it but that just because Im starting to write in English I got another blog on blogger but this is better ranked on google I guess that google doesn’t want to benefit blogger because they own it and they don’t place it on the top of the search results, I can’t find another reason I mean it has less content, less text but is better ranked than my other blog.

I think about  just take the content of my other blog in Spanish and paste it in this one but then I have a terrible idea to make this blog in English to work out, train or increase my English level or my skills with this language, as you can see I have a lot of work to do, but I need to specially now that Im trying to start as a freelancer on fiverr and Im communicating with my clients in English. About the Blog sometimes is going to be translation of the post of my Spanish blog but the most of the time I want to bring exclusive content to my English audience.

About me as a person and the content of my future posts I’ll be following the line of the description of the blog itself “Young adult on the precipice of defeat, trying to survive in country which is going through an humanitarian crisis (Venezuela), dealing with anxiety, and some other ASD in the process” I’ll try to talk about the things that I like, my struggle while Im trying to survive in Venezuela or get away from there, a little bit of  self promotion (music, fiverr gigs, probably patreon) but just a little, and as the majority of blogs the things that I don’t like that much.

To get in in the context  of  the Venezuelan Crisis you can watch this awesome video from John Oliver.

And that’s it from me with my first blog post in English disastrous as I expected.

Camara digital con bateria de Telefono Celular


, , , , , ,


– Cámara Digital (que opere con baterías o pilas AA)
– Batería de 3.7 V (De 1 teléfono Celular viejo y en desuso)
– Cargador de 3.7 V 
– Cables (puedes cortar de algun cargador que ya no utilices no hay porque gastar dinero)
– Conectores para los cables (Opcional igual funciona con empalmes)
– Cautín y estaño
– Amor (porque nada funciona sín amor)


Comenzamos con la batería del celu viejo yo utilizo una de un motorola grueso de esos CDMA de 3.7 V , Toma la Batería y 2 cablecitos que vas a cortar como de 5 a 7 cm los vas a soldar con estaño a los polos positivo y negativo respectivamente. Esta bateria con la extensión adecuada te puede servir de “bloque de poder (power block)” para tu teléfono actual cuando no halla un toma-corriente cerca o se vaya la electricidad en tu casa u oficina. Puedes colocar conectores los machos en los extremos de los cables que soldaste a la batería y los hembras en los extremos que vas a soldar en los receptores de la cámara.

La Cámara:

Esto es más complicado, tienes que abrir tu camara y localizar las placas que reciben a las Pilas AA, y las placas no los contactos de la tapa ni los resortes pues esos resortes o laminas hacen de intermediario y contactan con la placas al cerrar la tapa con las pilas AA y al no haber estas no habrá presión ni contacto por lo que debes ir debajo de estas laminitas que hacen de resortes y soldar allí tus cables en los contactos positivo y negativo respectivamente. Si vas a utilizar conectores colocar los conectores hembra en los extremos que salen a la superficie los cuales vas a conectar a tu batería en secuencia inversa el Negativo con el positivo y el positivo con el negativo (o así funciona con mi cámara).
Para cargar la Batería que has habilitado solo usa un cargador y empalma (o usa conectores) a los extremos de la la Batería para recargar durante 2 hrs, recuerda no excederse pues en este sistema de carga no hay indicador de llenado y si te pasas fundes la batería o reduces su vida útil. 
Como ven la mía funciona con empalmes pues vivo en Venezuela 2017 y de vaina consigues comida, todo esto lo hice con cosas que tenia en mi casa, la cámara estaba en desuso pues no compraba baterías AA por los motivos antes mencionados además de que contaminan y se gasta rápidamente y las recargables de este tipo son muy costosas al menos para mi, que a pesar de mis habilidades diversas sigo desempleado. Ah claro y no estamos renunciando a las pilas AA pues es un sistema dual las pilas van a quedar algo apretadas pero funcionará seguro.

En cuanto al Power Brick/Block

Con la misma batería le agregas una extensión que tenga el plug según tu tipo de teléfono, de un cable viejo o no se si en tu país tal vez la encuentres en una tienda de electrónica, le adhieres a través de conectores esa extensión a los cables de tu batería o bien empalmando pero eso tiene sus inconvenientes además de que si lo haces con cables de distinto espesor probablemente no funcione. Por ultimo recuerda que si vas a usar un cable USB viejo de los que tienen 4 cablecitos adentro solo debes usar los 2 de energía el positivo y negativo y Obviar los 2 de datos, los podras identificar por su color, google te lo dice yo no lo recuerdo.       

Detesto las fotos frente a un espejo pero es el único modo de probar que una cámara funciona.
