Is this the Canson book we got at the Bcn symposium? I really love what you are doing with that toned paper, Miguel!

Excellent technique, powerful imagery. SO well done.

Miguel Herranz said...

Thank you!
Nina: it’s actually the Strathmore we received in Santo Domingo ;)

Excellent reportage sketching!

Miguel - the women were wrapping themselves up and laying out like that? Pretty intense protest. Intense drawing too.

Thank you, Veronica. I asked one of them about the symbol and she told me it represented the consequences for women of the return to clandestine abortion since there's no law that can put an end to abortion itself.

Powerful. The choice of your paper and color only enhances the whole story and your underlying drawing.

Veronica Lawlor said...

Wow Miguel, that's a powerful symbol.

I keep thinking "powerful" and now I see it's been said. The way you report it gives it such impact. Thank you.
