These are illustrations I did about the cities I stayed in Mexico: Merida and the D.F. I wanted to describe these places with some of the elements that caught my attention the most. Some of the illustrations were developed to accompanied text that I wrote using old urban stories from the cities, while in others I wrote a journal of some of the places that amazed e the most. I also did a map of the places I visited in a very particular way. I also did an illustration of a facade which is something that really inspired me. I have a Patreon with my wife and we are sending postcards from the places we visited. Finally, I took elements from all the illustrations I did and created a pattern with it.
I am doing a journal of my trip. I make stories from the events that impress me the most and I do an illustration of them. Here the ones I did of Mexico.
I am also doing an investigation from the places I visited in which I compiled Urban myths and stories created on that city. It is a very interesting project since I believe myths help greatly to shape the culture of a country.
I feel attracted to the facades of the places I go since I feel are characteristics that shape the aesthetic of the city. I took my favorite elements and I put them together to create a facade. This one is made inspired by Merida, the biggest city in the Yucatan Peninsula.
I took elements from the illustrations and I did a pattern with them. I used the elements that attracted me the most and also the ones that play together harmonically. This is the result.
