Blinding Beauty

Illustration for an article by Gustavo about classic fairytales and hurt children.
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.

Illustration for an article by Gustavo Martín Garzo about women and femininity. The part I liked the most was a funny paragraph in which the author thanks Eve for eating the apple,  thus freeing us all from eternal boredom in Paradise.

Too much love

Illustration for an article by Gustavo about the nymph Echo.
She felt in love with Narcissus but she wasn't able to talk to him because she had been cursed by Hera. She only could repeat Narcissus's words. As expected all this ended tragically. She died of sadness with her heart broken.
