University project CENTRO


As part of the illustration class, we read the text of Eleven Children from Franz Kafka and were challenged to interpret it in our own visual way. I do not consider myself someone who knows how to draw, that's why this project is important for me, I realized that drawing is not only about knowing how to do but it is about composition in a blank page and knowing how to observe.

— Solution

I decided to use what more comfortable seemed to me, have always had a fascination with ink, usually in calligraphy but in this case I used it to draw I love the way it flows and by applying it with a  paint brush voila magic, plus I have always had a fascination with trees, but we can get into that later…
