Three friends stagger home after a night of drinking out on the town. Javier used overlapping diagonal lines and the light from the street lamp to give the piece a slight disorienting quality. Part of his long running series of people enjoying everyday activities, painted from his imagination without any visual references. He starts with a single sketch to determine the composition and then begins drawing, with most of the colors already mapped out in his head. "It is an important moment," Javier explains, "getting the colors right is crucial to achieve balance."

Measurements are for the full size paper 55.11" x 39.37", and the approximate painted area is 47.2" x 31.4". Under the painted area in the right corner in pencil is the title of the work in Spanish, "Borrachos en la calle del pueblo," the signature and the year in two digits (12). It is also signed on the back.
