Homeless


“Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me. Going to bed at night saying we’ve done something wonderful, that’s what matters to me.”
-Steve Jobs.

A visual impact from a constant and dedicated work.

“Homeless” was born from a story that I currently am writing. It represents, through a single character, the precariousness of society.

One year of work during my free time.

I did not intend to finish it as soon as possible, but to maintain a rhythm of constant dedication, ensuring that the work, when completed, would create as significant of an impact as the time I put into it.

A visual impact from a constant and dedicated work.

From my vision as an illustrator and creator, I believe that sensitivity in a work is obtained when the artist and his work share a common feeling.

Therefore, it should be noted that this work started on July 22, 2015 and ended, almost a year later, on June 23, 2016, accompanied me in very hard moments of my life where each stroke had a different feeling, either from sadness, anguish, joy, or anger.

A musical work, a painting, a drawing or other artistic productions are a good way to tell a life situation, a message, or simply a state of mind that cannot be expressed with words.

Sometimes when you innovate, you make mistakes. It is best to admit them quickly, and get on with improving your other innovations.

Jenna


“Don’t try to change the world. Find something that you love and do it everyday. Do that for the rest of your life and eventually the world will change.”
-Macklemore.

A lot of searching, practice, thought, and self-examination went into the creation of this character. Accompanied by my partner and friend in the construction of it, I used different faces and photographs of great artists so that I could eventually obtain the full significance of Jenna

It’s an experience based on the look, feeling, and transmission of a deep message through an illustrated work.

The creation of this character started from a story that I am in the process of writing which focuses on this girl, Jenna.

It took me months of searching and after several sketches and attempts I concluded finding this face.

The drawing process consisted of utilizing zones and concentrating on a point until the 50 cm x 70 cm space was filled.
