Cover

cover_red

This is a mockup of the cover for the graphic novel. Who knows if it’ll end up being the published version, but I’ve had this idea for some time of featuring two arms, signifying Jorge’s loss but also a universal gesture of seeking help, rescue. It also functions as a P.O.V (point of view) as I naturally used my own arms as reference.

While observing my arms I felt so grateful for having them, these precious appendages we all use so much without realizing it. I admire Jorge tremendously for his ability to do as much as he does without them.

Drawing Havana

Here’s a study of a street scene in old Havana.

habana_vieja011

It’s loosely based on a photo I took years ago and shows two constants in Cuban street life; People hanging about without anything particular to do and magnificent old buildings in Art Deco and Baroque style crumbling slowly. The idle Cuban is not lazy, rather, there’s nothing for many of them to do. In order to avoid high double digit unemployment, most Cubans are employed just a couple of days a week as there’s not enough work to go around.
