How did you make this work:
Sonde Croniche is a visual diary. It started during a disorienting and painful time. Lea is the protagonist’s name, an alter-ego that fights taboos, disabilities, pain, and more. Lea faces adversities like a contemporary warrior adorned by speaking tattoos that mutate accordingly to their emotions. They live in a surrealistic universe where fear and pain are transformed in weird and fun creatures.
