O Quebra-Cabeças, picturebook made by Helena Carvalho (text) and Mariana Rio (illustration), aims to trigger a profound reflection about shape, beauty, body and identity in the reader, trying to make him question about his perception of himself and others. In the making of the illustration, I've created an imaginary world. This geometric and based on Tangram game world is inhabited by fictional beings with diverse forms. The image sequence of the book aims to provide the reader with a mental game about these shapes and its possible fittings. This will lead the reader into a deeper thinking of the text’s main issues. O Quebra-Cabeças is a book about different bodies. It is an unfinished puzzle for readers to think about… What is perfection? What are beautiful bodies? Does geometry has anything to do with these matters?

O Quebra-Cabeças, picturebook made by Helena Carvalho (text) and Mariana Rio (illustration), aims to trigger a profound reflection about shape, beauty, body and identity in the reader, trying to make him question about his perception of himself and others.
In the making of the illustration, I've created an imaginary world. This geometric and based on Tangram game world is inhabited by fictional beings with diverse forms. The image sequence of the book aims to provide the reader with a mental game about these shapes and its possible fittings. This will lead the reader into a deeper thinking of the text’s main issues.
 
O Quebra-Cabeças is a book about different bodies. It is an unfinished puzzle for readers to think about…
What is perfection?
What are beautiful bodies?
Does geometry has anything to do with these matters?
