The legend of Loreley siren



So everyone asks me that my name it doesn't sound like is Spaniard at all, my parents wanted to give me a very different special name so special that they even changed the original Loreley to Lorelay.
Loreley is a rock in germany really! but is in a strong current river where there were many boat accidents, Also
Loreley is the name of one of the beautiful Rhine Maidens who lured navigators of this river to their dooms with their alluring singing, much as the ancient Greek Sirens did.

I was telling my friend Leo Matsuda the story and he suggested that I painted a illustration of it, so I did.
Thanks for the inspiration!

Bravo, me emociono cuando veo que aun hay gente que hace ilustraciones a color sin usar el oredenador; sobretodo si tiene el nivelazo que tu derrochas.

I had find waldo too. I`ll be back next post.
