Drawings and caricatures of the writer Nanni Balestrini. In the gallery below they are included a realistic portrait of the writer, some fast drafts and two versions -ideas for caricatures. This is the first time I worked completely digitally (sketch and color) and I feel that I didn't take advantage of the full capabilities of the medium. 

The background in the second version comes from a page of my comic "We want everything" which is based on the book with the same title by N. Balestrini.

Drawings and caricatures of the writer F. G. Lorca. In the gallery below they are included a realistic portrait of the writer, some fast drafts and two versions -ideas for caricatures.

The first version-idea is based on a print by F. Goya that belongs to the series "The disasters of war". Apart from the initial sketch I created an image similar to the Goya's print and another colored version. 

The second version-idea is based on the poem "Rider's song" or to be more precise on my illustrated version of the poem that was included in my comic collection Windy Nights published in greek in 2018 by Kapsimi publication company.

Both ideas have to do with the way Lorca was murdered by fascists during the spanish civil war.
