This drawing has as meaning or represents the freedom that many times we believe to have the people or human beings in this world; Many times we believe we have freedom but in reality we are slaves of our bad habits, our bad vices that destroy us and our busy lives that prevent us from dedicating time to ourselves and the people we love, therefore, the butterflies and all this drawing in general is in black and white, since the butterflies are flying freely but in a world or a context without color, without sense and in the middle of a self-deception so they do not have color as we humans who believe we are free when in reality we are governed by our bad life without realizing it. In short, I made this drawing to show an apparent freedom, a freedom that is not a true freedom and that deceives us, a freedom without color, a freedom and a life in black and white represented by means of butterflies that, like us, have a very short life, a few hours or a few days, a fleeting life that leaves us when we least imagine it.
This drawing is one of my greatest achievements since it is the first pencil drawing I have made of that size, the first drawing I have made as detailed as possible. It took me 3 and a half months to make this drawing, dedicating 4 to 6 hours every day. It is important to me because it is a drawing in which I put a lot of work and time to finish it and that is why it is of great value.
