this was my final project at IDEP in barcelona, done in 2010
it was selected for the Adobe Design Achievement Awards 2011 semifinals technique: matte painting, classical & vectorial illustration, photography and calligraphy
this is an adaptation of the book “lover of the great bear” by sergiusz piasecki, a heavily autobiographically inspired novel on contrabandists at the russian and polish frontier-zone. the project focusses on a very tense situation when the contrabandists hold up and rob another group which has been competing with them. the book is based on the experimental approach of interweaving text and images rather than separating them. the intention is to generate a different type of interaction between text, image and reader.
