Dream Island [fashion illustration/exhibition] – 02/2018

 

Last summer, after returning from Camiño/a, I was commissioned by Roberto Verino to make some illustrations for the spring/summer collection 2018 dedicated to Lanzarote and  probably its most famous artist César Manrique

I travelled to Lanzarote in late september and was enchanted by its rough beauty and Manrique´s spirit which is present all over the island in extraordinary arquitecture  which preserves the environment and emphasises the natural characteristics of the place.

I´m  especially grateful for the local Urban Sketchers group whose members received me with open arms and helped with the first orientation from a sketcher´s point of view besides joining me with their sketchbooks whenever possible.

All illustrations made on the island are currently exhibited at Roberto Verino/Ourense and some of them will be printed on garments from  the collection  Dream Island  available in stores in march 2018
