A book about my grandmother's life writted and illustrated by me.


I have always dreamt of writting a book about my grandmother's life. She raised me, she was my mom and my dad so... she's a big figure in my life. So, i kinda need it to tell her story. She was a pour kid from a little village in Venezuela, abused by her stepfather, married when she was just 14 years old... then her husband commited suicide and she had to raise six kids on her own. She's my hero and the evidence that even when everything is dreadful you can still find a way to happiness.

Explain how and why you created this work. Was it for a specific brief, etc.?

This is my college level thesis.

What were you trying to express?

I was trying to tell the story of a person that its everything to me but it's invisible to the world. I wanted to celebrate her life and show it to everyone.

Is it 100% your original work?
