THE WORLD THROUGH MY WINDOWS
The concept began while watching the different forms of life sharing the space when I was displaced due to Katrina. The curiosity of finding ways on how to interact with the wildlife, registering the experience on a viable format, ignited a chain reaction of decisions and a new chapter toward technology.
The book MEMENTO A POINT IN TIME highlights where and how everything came to be and how the experience provided a well of unforgettable memories. The lesson has been: nothing moves as an empty trajectory, as change brings continuing transformations affecting our path and, in a broader sense, they can make our world better or worse.
Colors and ideas play a major role in setting my life in motion while being keen by the irony of paradoxes, metaphors, and double standards. It doesn’t matter which voice or language we speak to communicate, but the tone and actions we add, matters. We hope our characters will bring a smile to your face while navigating through the pages.
We love dots and add lots of ellipses at the end of what we write. We know some are out of place. Feel free to complete our thoughts as you please. In the end, subjectivity will change the meaning of everything even when an effort is made to excel with clarity on grammatical skills.
eclectic body of work
We already mentioned that we are influenced by the moment in all important issues the world has been facing, our love for nature and the flaws of the human mammal. The characters have been inspired by the wildlife from my years in the woods or people we know.
However, as humor is genetic, is at the root of everything you see or read. My life included. Impossible to resist absurdities from products designed with a purpose in mind (?); demonstrative celebrations of dystopian ideologies; rituals of flushing your brain from reason down through the tubes of the intestines. From how “clean” has entered the mainstream from design to diet inside a world filled with chemicals and a great majority rolling in sewer.
How communication has turned into ridiculous icons and sentences with no intellectual meaning, written for buffoons. How LIKE has become “seal of approval” when who gives a shit to please strangers? There is not enough time to draw everything sketched because the material is limitless.
Opiniators with their own pages
Ines the rabbit was inspired by the life and personality of a fantastic woman, activist of her time, who befriend me and whose personality was fascinating. She used to fill up bus loads of people to go and protest to legislators sessions. At the time we became friends she was already 90 years old and with the same energy. An unforgetable friendship. All the rabbits follow the same root, as I happen to admire people who question and are corageous to seek truth.
All the created characters are related to people I knew and know, from my eclectic alter ego and, the wild life who shared our physical space during the years I lived in the woods. Chef Ragout Lapin and Paulette the chicken, are no doubt based on all of those people, pets and way of my own life. Everything created has deep roots into reality, but with our own creative "twist." We hope you enjoy them.
