Voces Sin Fronteras

/Posted by: Santiago

I was part of a team of mentors helping 16 Latinx youth tell their stories of immigration into the US using comics as their medium. Their experiences are collected in a book called Voces Sin Fronteras: Our Stories, Our Truth, published by Shout Mouse Press.

As part of the project, I created portraits of each of them for an autor profile accompanying their stories. These portraits were also used to create the cover of the book.

Choose Your Own Adventure

/Posted by: Santiago

Designed and Illustrated the covers for the Choose Your Own Adventure (CYOA) field trip books, for 826DC, in the style of the classic CYOA books. In these field trips, a class room will come and write together a story with different paths and endings, so the covers had to be generic enough to encompass many possible stories. They are printed and photocopied in house, hence they were created in black & white.
