Santiago100palabras

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.”
