I Am Smoke

product image
$18.95

Smoke speaks in mesmerizing riddles: "I lack a mouth, but I can speak.... I lack hands, but I can push out unwanted guests.... I'm gentler than a feather, but I can cause harm.... This rhythmically powerful narration is complemented by illustrations in which swirling smoke was captured on art paper held over smoky candle flames, and the dancing smoke textures were then deepened and elaborated with watercolors and Photoshop finishes. With this unique method, Merce López "let the smoke decide how the idea I had in mind would dance with it, giving freedom to the images."

The resulting illustrations are astounding, and they resonate with the otherworldly text.
