The determined

The Determined is a comic based on a text by the poet Nazim Hikmet (translated by Peter Markaris). It is a poem titled 8-10-1945  written while the poet was in prison and was published in a collection titled "The poems of 9-10pm".

Similar with the other poems I have illustrated (Let us Describe, The Song of the Rider) I chose a course of meaning from the many that could arise from reading these texts. This was done without any intention of counterfeiting or limiting the range of
these poems. On the contrary, I would like these comic to be another reading proposal.

As for the illustration itself, my original intention was to digitize the sketches (and reverse the colors), as I did in the other two poems. However, because the result did not satisfy me, I finally kept it in only three pages, where it seemed to work.
