Yoss Sanchez
A Walk Around Town

Un-commissioned | New Talent

Why did you make this work:
This is a wordless sequence in a concertina format that push me to think differently about composition and narrative.

How was the illustration used:
This concertina book was one of my graduation projects for my MA course in children's book illustration.

How did you make this work:
A limited colour palette was used to focus the attention in the characters' shapes and their actions throughout the sequence. Printed at home following a process of "digital screen print", first printing in full colour the yellow and orange and then printing in gray scale the black and grays.
