THIS 
DAMN CAT

 

JUMPS IN THE MULTIVERSE

"Every action has a reaction, small, but real, that is why it is so difficult to “choose”. In X∞ (or, this damn cat), consequences exist. Here, the nameless character is every character: a pretentious writer, a gay porn actor, a movie director without income, a blind painter. It is through the fragmentation of stories/chapters that they connect within other and tells a life full of pain and failure, but a good life based on the main decision: choosing the girl that one day showed up with a cat". -Martín García

The world in perpetual mutation, the infinite possibilities and the jumps in the time continuity were the base for these illustrations on the first novel by Martín García. Digital illustration and 3D modeling.

WORD

 

THE WORD CREATES THE WORLD

"When we perceive the world with attention, in detail, we enter into communication with it. The word hides behind the world as a shadow and, when we read it, we can transform reality. The word is soundless among those who are never heard and loud among those who have power. The word creates the world, carrying life to all. The poet hears the echo of the voices that join the words and the things and his mission is to lay electric wires between them". -Arturo Grijalva

For the cover of the essays book by Arturo Grijalva, I created a series of 50 illustrations to construct a kind of graphic language, a grid composition that simulates a conversation and the possibilities of the mutating word.

THIS IS 
NOT A MUSTANG

 

A RACE WITHOUT SCAPE

"In This is not a mustang, the mystical experience is presented in every day: the weekend parties, the search for a graphic novel for a whole city, the filming of a pornographic film based on literary texts." Here the real and fantastic topics come together through the "awareness", that "realization" that is followed by a tear, of the break with normality, an estrangement for each character of these stories for San Juan de la Cruz, it is It is possible to unite with God through spiritual denial. For the girl who plays at being a witch, the line between play and reality is blurred. For children who throw themselves in search of a forgotten deity, it is unknown if they dream with demons or vice versa In this book, mortal consciousness is the sin of light in the eyes of the falling angel". -Francisco López Ibarra 

In this novel, the characters are chased by surreal situations, monstrous legs that try to crush them, the legs of an animal, the legs of a Mustang, the legs of the irremediable fate. The illustrations as a conclusive picture show us this animal on all its splendor.

NARCO CULTURE, GIRLS, AND POETRY 

"This title talks by itself, not as a recipe book but what is made of. It is the search of the author’s poetic voice among different forms. Using topics as pop music, the writer talks about consumerism as nostalgia, common life scenes throughout onomatopeias, narco-voice and romantic episodes about a dealer’s days, and finally concludes in gathering all these parts to discuss a poetic approach".-Arnulfo Valdéz

This illustration work is an attempt to force all the topics on the poet's book in a graphic juxtaposition, the perception of being aboard of a raw and violent acid trip, but warm as a homemade soup.
