By the time I lived in Barcelona illustrated literature for adults was something common.
I made this illustrations for “The bird”, a short tale by controversial Cuban author
Abreu himself suggested me to illustrate the story which seemed very interesting and challenging from the visual aspect viewpoint.
These images were never published but I enjoyed very much the process of creating them.
The story tells about a misanthropist writer who is tired of his human condition and decides to become a bird through a DNA modification.
This is a bitter dark tale with bizarre characters and some kind of punk gothic spirit.
Hope you enjoy the images!
Have a wonderful day!
