  • La célula que explota
    Illustration for «Haremos historia», illustrated tribute to Caifanes
  • An illustrated interpretation of Mexican rock band Caifanes’ song «La célula que explota» from their 1992 album «El Silencio», perhaps one of my favourite Mexican rock songs of all time. The technique is traditional/digital. A detailed line drawing, pencil over vellum, plus digital colour. Work done for a collective tribute exhibition, curated by Monterrey studio Xplaye for their project Ilustrando Para.
    I am particularly fond of the colour palette achieved here, as well as the clean, modulated line work.
