So.. as repetitive as this sounds, I made one more collage and the same topic came up: my addiction. Is hard to admit to myself that there is a need of using non-stop and that I lost control. So this is how it starts: blank cardboard, magazines, and random images that I keep in boxes. At the back of the desk, there’s a collage of … Continue reading Fumeta
This hobby started when covid first hit and lockdown was mandatory everywhere.I´m happy it continued, it makes me feel happy. I never considered myself a creative type of person. Maybe if lockdown hasn´t occurred, I would have never had the time to explore this type of activity. I was always too worried about wasting time. There is a process of asking myself a question, and … Continue reading Contes de la vera veritat
When I made this collage many things were happening in my life. On one side, my company was moving outside of the city and that meant a huge change for me when it comes to my daily transportation. On the other side, my brother moved to Spain, to my apartment in Barcelona. At work we needed a extra hand, so I got him a job … Continue reading I´m building a fucking building
I need stimulants all the time. If I´m very honest to myself, I take psychiatric medication in the morning, smoke cannabis every day, both CBD and THC, and drink lots of beverages with natural caffeine. For the last 10 years, I take 20 milligrams of Prozac in the morning. That was prescribed at the moment and it helps with other physical anxieties I have, but … Continue reading I am an addict?
The name of this post has 2 meanings: On one hand, it’s the collage I made as a birthday present for my good friend Gala, and on the other hand, she chose one of Dali art work named “The wines of Gala and of Gods”. So it felt appropriate to name it like this. As usual, it started in my living room table, where I … Continue reading Gala
There are different definitions of self-sabotage, but the one that impacted me the most was this one: “The act of destroying or damaging something deliberately so that it does not work correctly” That is how I feel about myself when it comes to relationships or getting involved emotionally with someone, I always fuck it up. There is something about my behavior that changes, and it … Continue reading Do you self-sabotage?
So it was my roommate’s birthday, and I wanted to try this for a while. To give a collage as a present, where the person chooses the images, and I represent something afterward. This is how it started. I have images already cut, kept in different boxes, so it is very easy to choose. A joint and Apolo are always part of the picture. . Continue reading Making a collage as a present for someone with images I recycle and they choose
I think about Chip often, and I ask myself if maybe I overreacted. The thing is that he made me feel upset. I needed something from someone who couldn´t give me more or didn´t want to. I´m always telling my friends to surround themselves with people who have a positive effect on their lives. Sometimes we need to listen to ourselves when we advise others. … Continue reading What if…?

We are still closed to the students and continue the online lessons until Feb 7th. However, it looks like a lockdown is coming, Covid cases in Spain continue to increase. … Continue reading The Ups and Downs of January 2021
If you check out this post https://lacatalove.com/2021/01/21/man-can-easily-give-me-a-fucking-headache/ , I was upset about this guy’s behavior, and I made the conscious decision to let him go. Instead of feeling sorry for myself, because one more time I got attracted to the wrong guy, I put all those emotions into a collage. Step 1: First I found a big piece of hard material that I have been … Continue reading Using your disappointment in a creative way
During weekends in Barcelona only essential stores are open. The lockdown is getting more strict here. There´s not much to do socially speaking anymore. I´ve been very active lately with my collages. This one was done in 1 day. I started on Friday night and finished it today, Saturday afternoon. Continue reading What to do when you are in lockdown again
Is very cold in Barcelona and we are in lockdown again. I used to feel guilty if I stayed in the whole weekend, but now I have the perfect excuse. This collage has been “on hold” for months, because from one collage, 2 more were created! First, I taped a piece of cardboard on the wall. This was recycle from the packaging from my protein … Continue reading Rainy freezing Saturday during a third lockdown
