Rocinante

The Truth about Sancho Panza by Franz Kafka
Without making any boast of it Sancho Panza succeeded in the course of years, by feeding him a great number of romances of chivalry and adventure in the evening and night hours, in so diverting from himself his demon, whom he later called Don Quixote, that this demon thereupon set out, uninhibited, on the maddest exploits, which, however, for the lack of a preordained object, which should have been Sancho Panza himself, harmed nobody. A free man, Sancho Panza philosophically followed Don Quixote on his crusades, perhaps out of a sense of responsibility, and had of them a great and edifying entertainment to the end of his days.
(Translated by Willa and Edwin Muir)

Sancho Panza, que por lo demás nunca se jactó de ello, logró, con el correr de los años, mediante la composición de una cantidad de novelas de caballería y de bandoleros, en horas del atardecer y de la noche, apartar a tal punto de sí a su demonio, al que luego dio el nombre de don Quijote, que éste se lanzó irrefrenablemente a las más locas aventuras, las cuales empero, por falta de un objeto predeterminado, y que precisamente hubiese debido ser Sancho Panza, no hicieron daño a nadie. Sancho Panza, hombre libre, siguió impasible, quizás en razón de un cierto sentido de la responsabilidad, a don Quijote en sus andanzas, alcanzando con ello un grande y útil esparcimiento hasta su fin.

The 'lean and foolish knight', drawn to perfection along with SP and poor old, near-knackered Rosinante! Superb!

Increíble el caballo de Quijote.

Oscar, en un acto de imprudencia y vandalismo subí en mi blog la foto del perro, espero no haber metido la pata.

Conocí un viejo que leyó tanto el Quijote que se enloqueció y se creyó él.. tenía su aldonza y su sancho.. un par de borrachos que vivían cerca de un puente y que le robaban los puchos..

Creo que este es uno d elos dibujos mas lindo y mas dificil d edibujar que eh visto en mi vida grillo. las líneas estan como tiradas casi al azar y forman un perfecto y estupefacto quijote con su caballo y su sancho panza atras... este dibujo lo miraré un rato para grabarlo bien en mi memoria.
