    Poster for Darfur, on behalf of Amnesty International
  • Vertigo gallery, in Mexico City, together with Amnesty International, organized the project «Libro por Darfur». More than 60 international illustrators and designers were invited to collaborate with original work for a one-of-a-kind book, to be signed by several thousand people, with the purpose of convincing the UN to make specific efforts for peace in this troubled part of Sudan, in Africa. This is my collaboration, made over one feverish night! Graphite and carbon over tracing paper, plus digital colour. Calligraphy, done in a very rough, straightforward fashion, was incorporated to the illustration, ink blobs and drops included. Probably one of the most expressive, gut-wrenching works I’ve made. Thanks to Clarisa Moura and Dr. Alderete for their invitation to collaborate.
