Cuentos de los Hermanos Grimm

Brothers Grimm Fairy Tales (Cuentos de los Hermanos Grimm) Project, is a personal work in the area of book illustration and editorial design. These stories are well known around the world from their TV and cinema adaptations; and of course from the different translations
and book editions. The idea was to create a series of books including some of the most famous stories from the brothers Grimm. For this project I made a selection of four tales: Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, Snowhite and The Frog Prince, I built the layout for the books and made an illustration for each of the stories. A cover illustration for each book was made and some extra drawings for internal pages. For the project I designed one of the books from the series. 

Every illustration was created entirely in graphite pencils with some retouches in Photoshop. The images were created in a vertical format measuring 35cm x 50cm each. The Brothers Grimm Fairy Tales Project was published in the online magazine Furiamag for the Inspiración Furiamag edition # 208. I have also participated with the project on the 2012 version of the Young Illustrators Award contest from Berlin in the Illustrative Biennale of Illustration.
