We are very happy to receive the last issue of Latterly Magazine (Winter 2017/18). The cover was illustrated by us and features the portrait of Berta Cáceres, a Honduran activist with an incredible life story, murdered at age 44.
The background of the illustration is rough and hard, as her life. The colour palette is based on plants and soil because the woman was an environmental activist. I chose to make the hair with succulents because of their resistance; are very strong plants, like Berta. Finally, I chose a reference photo where she was smiling because this enlightened woman led people from her community firmly, but always with good humour and sweetness. In most of the photos I had access to, she had this smile.
A very great honour to be able to do that work.
