Some literary illustrations - Unas ilustraciones literarias

8개월 전



I made these illustrations for World Book Day, as part of a tribute to the two literary giants, Shakespeare and Cervantes, who died on the same date, April 23, 1616 (although one died according to the Julian calendar and the other according to the Gregorian calendar). In each of them you can see some of the main characters of their works. From Cervantes, apart from the well-known Don Quixote, I also included characters from his short farces and Exemplary Tales, such as Rinconete and Cortadillo, the "illustrious" kitchen maid, and Cipión and Berganza, the two dogs protagonists of The Dialogue of the Dogs. The illustration dedicated to Shakespeare features McBeth, Romeo and Juliet, and Hamlet, among others.

Hice estas ilustraciones para el Día Internacional del Libro, como parte de un tributo a esos dos gigantes de la literatura, Shakespeare y Cervantes, que murieron en la misma fecha, el 23 de abril de 1616 (aunque uno según el calendario juliano y el otro según el gregoriano). En cada una de ellas se pueden ver algunos de los personaje principales de sus obras. De Cervantes, aparte del celebérrimo don Quijote, también puse personajes de sus entremeses y las Novelas ejemplares, como Rinconete y Cortadillo, la ilustre fregona, y Cipión y Berganza, los dos perros protagonistas de *El coloquio de los perros. En la ilustración dedicada a Shakespeare se pueden ver a McBeth, a Romeo y Julieta, y a Hamlet, entre otros.
