El Circo Lorza
an illustrated book about the world´s most heavy-weighted circus show.

EL CIRCO LORZA ( The Chubby Circus ) is a pantagruelic, titanic and superlative show featuring the world´s biggest variety artists.

I organised this book (half homage, half parody of the classic circus world) in double faced pages to introduce the different artists of the crew. The artwork remains vintage cross-lined inkpen illustrations. All the graphic elements (drawings, ornaments, calligraphy) are handmade.
The book is printed in brown-sepia ink.
