Manual of the Warrior of Light – Epilogue

After more than two years, my project is finished, and I illustrated the whole book! I’m excited, and now I’ll try to contact Paulo Coelho and see if he likes it :)

Thanks for following, liking and supporting! :) It’s been quite a journey!

Mother and Daughter

Hey everybody!

I’m going to share with you one of my last works on commission – just to rest the eyes after so much “Warrior of Light” ;)

A great mother, friend of mine, asked me to paint a mother and a daughter that reminded her and her little girl.  I want to thank her for giving me the opportunity of painting such an amazing subject!

This time I also tried with some videos of the work in progress, you can take a look on my Instagram page! Enjoy!

The Manual of the Warrior of Light – First part

This is one of my hardest, most loved, most sweated works: I decided, something like two years ago, to illustrate Paulo Coelho’s book “The Manual of the Warrior of Light”. And I’m not done yet, a lot of work is still to be done.

I have a strange relationship with this book: when I bought it, it was not the right moment of my life for it to be red. Then, after years, I realized how many messages of strength, positivity, perseverance and faith are hidden inside of it, and it became my “lucky book”, a book to open when my faith in the Universe begins lacking, and even if, of course, it doesn’t contain any answer, it’s a good friend, with all of its flaws, imperfections, and diamonds. Thanks, Paulo Coelho.

With these illustrations, I had periods of pure productivity and long moments of total stuck. After years, nights up, struggling and a lot of good time, now I think it’s time for the sea to receive this message in the bottle of mine, and it’s time for me to start letting it go, until, hopefully, one day, someone will enjoy looking at it.

Periodically I will update here all the illustrations, but check out my Instagram page, too. Enjoy!
