Well, this is the first book that I have illustrated and now it's been published; An Unwanted Journey (Creative Accompaniment in Paediatric Palliative Care) Authors: Rubén Bild / Iván Gómez. Plamienok Books. Plamienok is a NGO that works with children and teens that have terminal diseases and help them to go through all the process relieving physical and emotional pain. In the pictures I tried to show neither sadness nor happiness but calm, acceptance and hope.
This is an oil painting that I finished this week. It took me about 7 hours to have it done. I wanted to play with light and the environment, in the sense that there's a warm atmosphere that embrace everything and it's reflected by the water contaminating the whole canvas. The blue colour is the other important side of the balance, giving the image a more melancholic and sad feeling, which is something that I wanted to achieve for this theme; the solitude of this Gollum like character.
