Black and white Illustration using ink and paint on old books. I draw directly on the books with black ink and use the paint to erase any possible mistakes I make. I started with drawings of characters and nudes, and now I´m using the books as flipbooks doing animations.
Explain how and why you created this work. Was it for a specific brief, etc.?
I had a lot of old books and I didn´t want to throw them away, so I started to draw on top of them. At first, it was very difficult because I thought of them as something sacred that cannot be damage, but with time, I learned how to lose my fear. This has help me a lot in arts because now I know I can break some rules in order to be creative. I´ve done 2 flipbooks so far: Mr. Fish https://vimeo.com/167663366 and Pelota Feliz https://vimeo.com/107421042
What were you trying to express?
I wanted to play, to be creative with my drawings
Is it 100% your original work?
