genie espinosa : Hidden from sight

Exploration

Un-commissioned | Professional

Why did you make this work:
I felt the urge to explore and show what was happening inside me at that particular moment. It was a rough time, with lots of changes and this was a way to cope and tell people what was happening without telling them (because I have a hard time showing feelings). It was super therapeutic, and had this winning sensation of achievement.

How was the illustration used:
As it was just for exploration I shared these on instagram and later I had the chance to make an expo. So I made prints from these work and that's the only use i've been giving them. They worked as an inspiration for many projects that came after them, so these are a huge part of what I am today as a professional illustrator.

How did you make this work:
I usually sketch very fast and very rough in a notebook or the first piece of paper I can find, later I just have the pencil next to me as reference and work digitally with my cintiq and Photoshop. I find digital techniques very helpful as these take a bit of stress of the production process.
