Project Info

Personal project / Editorial Illustration that was briefly based on the line “Your dream world is a very scary place to be trapped inside. Within you it’s the truth. You’re closer. Closer to the truth” from the song “Closer” by Anathema. A quick draft after three months of artistic hiatus back in 2007, trying some textures I gathered with my camera on the way. Ironically, turned out to be a very popular editorial illustration, with features in Mercury Magazine, Inside Art Zine, Exposé 11, S Artbook, Photo & Retouching Magazine…

  • This editorial illustration is still available for non-exclusive licenses in Editorial fields.
  • “Closer” is available is many fine art prints formats, such as photo, canvas, glicée, aluminium and acrylic. If interested, please visit Fine Art America and deviantArt.
  • The illustration is also available as T-Shirts, hoodies and more apparel on my Redbubble store and Cotógrahix (best option if you order from Spain).
