A las Buenas y a las Malas
"A las Buenas y a las Malas" (For the Good and for the Evil) is a collective book of contemporary and traditional fairy tales.
Being a book about magic and witchcraft the illustrations are made in a mix of techniques as if they were ingredients of a magic potion, trying to establish metaphors not by what the image represents but by the process through which it´s represented. Wooden objects are printed in woodcut, glass in monotype on glass, miners are drawn in chalk, demons textured using volcanic rock, monks painted on bible paper, etc.
The illustrations were selected in the Bologna Children´s Bookfair in 2008.
