🎬 '𝐈𝐍 𝐓𝐇𝐄 𝐇𝐄𝐈𝐆𝐇𝐓𝐒' 🗽

"Paciencia y... fe"
Este musical es algo nuevo y fresco para el género. Lo vi sin expectativas y me sorprendí muchísimo. La trama te llega al alma si eres latino y te ha tocado irte de tu país para buscar mejores oportunidades. Desde el primer momento te atrapa por la manera en cómo cuentan la historia. Anthony es el protagonista, este interpreta a Usnavi, un chico de República Dominicana que vive en el barrio y maneja una tienda. Su actuación fue muy buena y sus partes de canto son muy alegres. También tenemos a Melissa interpretando a Vanesa, el interés romántico de Usnavi. Ella es una chica que quiere ser diseñadora y salir del barrio. Una muy buena actuación, debo decir que su color de voz fue mi favorito de la película. Alguien que se robó mi corazón fue el personaje de Claudia, una dulce señora que aunque no aparece mucho en pantalla, se roba cada momento que protagoniza. Por otro lado, la edición de la película es una de las mejores que he visto. Así mismo, las coreografías y banda sonora son espectaculares. Mis escenas favoritas son la de la piscina y el edificio👌imposible no querer bailar con esas canciones. La fotografía fue muy linda. Y esas vistas panorámicas desde arriba mostraban la coreografía completa. El guión es demasiado bueno, cada personaje tiene diálogos importantes y te encariñas con todos. A su vez, no le dan tantas vueltas al asunto y van al grano, por lo tanto, es un guión directo y consiso. Además, cada personaje tiene sus propios conflictos internos. El filme también cuenta con escenas conmovedoras o con las que cualquier latino se identificaría. 'In The Heights' es un regalo a esta bella comunidad latina que día a día lucha por lograr sus sueños, algunos deben partir de su país para lograrlo. Esta película es un regalo para los latinos que tenemos un "sueñito".

Holy line-work Batman! This one took forever, but I think it’s worth it ✨ Someday I will see the inside of this beautiful theater - from what I understand it is even more stunning and ornate than the outside! For now I enjoy La Plaza de Las Americas for the weekly music and gatherings there.

Feeling so inspired from participating in the uptownphotowalk this past weekend led by turnthepicto! My walk began and ended at Word Up, an organization that exemplifies what it means to work with and for the community. If you’re in the area, come celebrate their 10 year anniversary this Friday!

Home, In The Heights... #cafe #hudsonheights #wahipizza #onesixtyboys #hoodenvironment ...#intheheightsartproject #goya #cohiba #cigaraficionado #cafebustelo #intheheights

¡No pare, sigue sigue! Just one more intheheightsmovie related post 😊.

This is a ...billboard we walked past in Bushwick, so technically not a #washingtonheightsvistas. But that is anthonyramosofficial hood, so there is some correlation to the heights, right? 😁
Just loved la esquinita and had to try illustrating it.
Spent way too much time painting the clouds and old school tagged some uptown talent that had some part in the movie.
In no way do I think I did the actors justice in my illustration: the purpose was to depict the corner. Todos son mucho más lindos en la realidad 😅

Swipe for details!

Done! The sight of a Mister Softee truck parked at Fort Tryon Park's Jacob K. Javits ...Playground hearkens back to pre-pandemic normalcy. I see this normal scene almost every day, but this one time I found the truck under a magically dim sky, with different light sources clashing in nearly imperceptible tones. One of the hardest parts for me was to decide on the colors (which I'll cover in another post one day). I'm happy with how it turned out and hope you enjoyed the clips along the way. Watercolor on 16"x20'' Arches cold press paper.

Finally finished. Every spring, we see this great Cherry Blossom tree just across the street come ...to life. Recently I stopped underneath and looked up and saw the American flag and the adjacent apartment building framed beautifully by the flowers.

I like to capture simple, fleeting scenes like this, where angles and curves and composition come together only within the radius of a few inches. Step just a bit in any direction, and it's gone.
Just a few days later, the tree was barren again. Watercolor on 17”x22” cold press paper. #cherryblossom #nyc #intheheights #washingtonheights #nycart #artistsoninstagram #watercolor #painting #urbansketchers #nycurbansketchers #art #manhattan #flag #subwaysketcher #intheheightsartproject

My sisters mrsconny & maritza_parra_crisostomo, can attest that out parents have been smokers, ...literally our entire lives. Even when they were told I was asthmatic, I remember them telling the doctor, at 8 years old, we will open a window 😂

Years later I would learn that this was their companion, a loyal friend, this cigarette has been my mothers “exhale” for as long as I can remember.

Funny enough none of my sisters and I are smokers but often have commented and almost envied, that inhale/exhale feeling. It’s as tho all vanishes once they finish that cigarette.

I couldn’t capture the exhale, since this was taken paparazzi style, but I’ve come to think that the inhale, that moment that you choose to let it all in, is what matters most.

Finished! This is a well-worn stretch of Broadway at 192nd Street in Washington Heights. It was its... usual bustling self when I walked by and was enthralled by the darker foreground against a bright background of diagonals beneath a clear blue sky. Watercolor on 21”x28” cold press paper.

Lots of tips and tricks, and in addition to just being a genius, she has a wonderful, clear, no-nonsense teaching style!!!!! Already feeling excited about it--thanks, Rosa!!

Today we went home to Dominican Republic .
I can wax poetically about this country and it’s ...people. I’ve traveled from #bani to #sosua and a bunch in between, yet never to #puntacana 😉. #fireescapism
I can’t wait to go home and visit my family and introduce myself to parts unknown.

Read. Listen. Repeat.
I’ve had the privilege of visiting Dominican Republic for almost every... year of my life. In fact, for the last 3-4 years I visit 3-4 times a year, going out of my way to learn more, visit more, & experience more of the culture.
The books I have (over 200 books, not counting kindle) are old, torn, highlighted and re-read. I still have so much to learn and so many people to learn from. If nothing else, regardless of how much you know, pick up another book!
Oh and buy local, these were purchased from wordupbooks & thelitbar
brujasofbrooklyn have a great link on resources about Dominican history.
dominicanabroad has an informative blog and tours
dominicanwriters & claudio.e.cabrera are phenomenal resources.
aimeemazara teaches thru art
mamichulasocialclub upliftnyc are organizations that brings the commmunitu together
These are just a couple of resources amongst many.
Thinking of making a resource list of Dominican American and Dominican resources. If one does exist, please let me know ⬇️. #fireescapism *
