Alejandra Pizarnik

February-October 2016 | Illustration/editorial Project

In 2016 I started this illustration project. A series of illustrations based on the argentine poet, Alejandra Pizarnik.

The process of making the illustrations was very exhaustive. I worked on it during nine months, two of them exclusivelly concentrated making the final illustrations in New York. I worked in 15 final illustrations and more than 30 skecthes.

All the process and final art are based in the poems and Alejandra herself. Her diaries, life and her unique and deep vision.
