Illustration: Gender-Based Violence

Illustration

This an editorial illustration I did a while ago for a Culturico article that deals with honor killings and gender-based violence. It is a hard and sensitive topic to discuss, so I wanted to reflect that without being too gratuitous.

Drunk Boy Illustration for a Hoodie

Illustration, Projects

A short time ago I received a request for an illustration to be printed on a black hoodie and now that I have pictures of the final product I would like to share them as my last project of the year.

Originally I was given a very rough notebook sketch of a boy drinking over a tram, from which I drafted my own version. The main limitation was to use only two colors besides black and white.

Illustration: True Self

Illustration

An illustration for an upcoming Culturico article about self-sacrifice and being your true self.

I’m going to paraphrase the main idea: human beings are a not static, but a myriad of ideas and concepts, sometimes contradictory or random. We perform to adjust to other people’s expectations, but if we were true to ourselves, we might become unrecognizable to others.

Inktober 2019 (Part 3)

Art, Illustration

And we’ve reached the end of Inktober. Overall, it has been a really fun and useful activity for me. Thinking of an image for each word prompt was a nice creative challenge in itself, and I got to practice my hand-drawn drawing skills, which were a bit rusty. I’m quite fond of how some of them turned out.

Here are the next ten Inktober drawings, only eleven more to go. I’ll continue posting them daily on my Instagram.

In case anyone’s wondering, I’ve been inking with a Zebra V-301 Fountain Pen, a Zebra Zensations Double-Sided Brush Pen, and a regular Sharpie marker. They might not be the most professional tools available but they’ve been working well enough for me.
