Illustration made for the local contest “Santiago en 100 palabras” (Santiago in 100 words), that consisted of making an illustration of one of the previous years winning stories. It wasn’t a winner but it was fun to make!
The story to illustrate was the following:
“Por poco” by Pedro Vallete:
“A woman looked at me through a shop windows in a mall. And well, in her eyes I saw myself with 3 kids, a dog in the yard, the fear of lossing the job, the infinite loans, and some endless sunday afternoon lazy days in her parent’s house. I felt the weight of the same mornings, the same afternoons, the same nights, the same reproaches. Quickly, I looked away, rushed my steps and got out to the street. I had survived one of those fatal seconds in which the city tends to seal the destiny of men.”
