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!

Ps. I want once again to remind that every caption is an extract written by Paulo Coelho in his book! ;)
