Colombia

  • COLOMBIA ILLUSTRATIONS

    These are illustrations I did about the cities I visited in Colombia: Bogota, Medellin, Santa Marta, Macarena, Villa de Leiva, and others. I wanted to describe these places in a mor personal way. Instead of high lightning the obvious, I rather show what is peculiar and singular form that place.  The illustrations were done to accompanied writings I did  about urban stories and myths of the country. Others, are part of a journal I wrote about the things that amazed me the most. I also did a map of the places I visited in a very particular way.  Finally, I took elements from all the illustrations I did and created a pattern with it.


  • THE MAP.
    The map of Colombia showing the places I visited. I used different materials such as thread, tape, different paper and of course graphite.

  • El Tucán. Story here
    En La Macarena hay un Tucán que se cree una gallina.
    Se lo robaron de una selva y lo mandaron a adornar una casa encerrado en una jaula.
    Un día sus dueños se aburrieron de cuidar tan delicado espécimen y a punto de sacrificarlo,
    una señora que tenía un gallinero llego para rescatarlo.

    Nunca mas será salvaje y ahora el avechucho pasa sus días imitando al vecino,
    buscando comida en el suelo y aprendiendo a cacarear.

    PATTERN
    I took elements from the illustrations and I did a pattern with them. I used the elements that attracted me the most and also the ones that play together harmonically.  This is the result.
