Tassilo der Mumienabrichter
Complete new art done for a novel.
From the cover and back cover, to illustrations for the internal pages and book's flaps.
Sketches and ink work done in order to give a "look and feel" of an old engraving illustration.
The main city on the story, Elon, is depicted here among drawings of a monkey and a dragon, key elements on this novel.
For the open presentation of the book, a series of posters and flyers were also done, adapting the art done for the book but into this media.
Cover and back cover of the book, worked in oils on canvas paper.
I´m very happy to present this final design and art done for this novel.
A wonderful book, that mixes from an imaginary and crazy baroque inspired city, where the main character, Tassilo, is a very young teenager totally absorbed in this high class society. He controls and works with "momified" apes, inside a very troubled and problematic story, where the looks and appareances are the most important aspects of his contradictory life.
I worked on the whole book, including the title, covers, character design, the city's architecture, the baroque ornaments and engraving-style drawings and chapter´s separators. All heavily inspired by this amazing and troubled world, but also referencing the Baroque and venetian styles, within a deep research on this wonderful time period.
What I'm working on, projects's process and much more?
