La Reliquia
Here it's the cover (the coloured one) and some of the illustrations of a book published in Colombia this year. It was an interesting project as I was given the stories that a group of teenagers from a poor neighbourhood in Villavicencio (a city) had written (about relationships, dreams, sex, family, etc.) in a workshop. Their stories where incredible, some of them with a touch of sarcasm mixing reality and those fantasy worlds of a teenager. It was a huge responsibility, as this was their first (and sadly, probably their last) opportunity to be read by somebody from outside their immediate environment. I still don't know what the writers thought about the illustration...
