Microplaceres

EDITORIAL ILLUSTRATION

"I'm sorry, really. I swear. But still, Your Honor... how hypnotic those bumps were. Yes, I know, I have already said it, but let me reiterate it. And I know it is no excuse, because there's no possible excuse. But those buttons were clearly a magnet for my weak and tired eyes, unable to resist them.” I was commisioned to illustrate a series of twenty erotic micro stories contained in a single book titled Microplaceres (Micropleasures) by author MC Latorre.

Lana Virgen

Story I — Lana Virgen

The whole story is a statement from an individual who pleads guilty to being unable to prevent his eyes from posing lasciviously on a woman's tight sweater. The illustration captures the moment when his furtive and excited gaze rests on the young woman.

La Botella

Story II — La Botella

The story is about the excitement that the sinuous forms of a glass bottle —employed in an innocent youth game— causes in the protagonist. The illustration shows her predilection for the mentioned object of desire, above the relationship with other people her age.

Art direction

The general art direction is based on the use of large masses of flat and saturated colors on which silhouettes of elements that have relevance in each story stand out. Each silhouette serves as a container for a small illustrated scene. This way, all the illustrations are easily identifiable as part of the same collection.

Story VI — Piel

This story is about the encounter between a masseuse and an unforeseen client for whom she ends up feeling a certain attraction. The illustration shows the tattooed back of the client, undressing, and the indecisive figure of the protagonist, wanting to touch it.

Rajita

Story IX — Rajita

The story is about two girls: Rachel and Rebel Jane, apparently interested in a punk-rock singer, Jane's former lover. In the middle of a concert, they engage in an unpleasant conversation that little by little ends in a very unexpected way.
