Illustration for an article by Gustavo Martín Garzo about classic fairytales and hurt children. He writes about the kids in the Fairy tales that survive precisely because they're blind or deaf or they limp, as it happens in the Pied Piper of Hamelin.
This image is reminiscent of a self-portrait I did years ago. I'm kind of obsessive with the subjects of my drawings.
Technique has been madness in this one. Gouache, pencils, charcoal pencil, powder pastel.
I want to keep using gouache. It's been a medium I've never been quite fond of, but it's growing on me.
Grahite, charcoal gouache on grey BFK Rives + digital
