Why did you make this work:
Beautiful and empty cities look like another world. These illustrations want to be a hymn to the joy of children, to the freedom and the power of imagination. Even though the world has come to a stop, children keep on dreaming and playing.

How was the illustration used:
These 5 illustrations are part of an upcoming big illustrated silent book made of 30 cities from all over the world.

How did you make this work:
To make these illustrations I tried to reproduce the traditional collage technique but in a digital way. Starting from a texture layer I cut and pasted each single details, in black or white or red, in order to create spectacular architectures and cityscapes.
