An illustration about the deficiencies of an educational system which does not meet the needs and natural talents of children.

illustration of ”No one is the fatherland, not even the rider Who,high at the dawn of an empty square
Rules his steed made of bronze through time”...
Illustration on argentine poet Jorge Luis Borges. Forever condemned both animal and human to witness in front of the government house. But in this case, the horse decides to leave the scene and the rider falls. Dignity disappears. An ankle caught in the stirrup shows up the fatal fate: the hero will be raptured and disfigured by the force of the beast.
illustration of The falling of the poet through hell, gave us the imagery of an afterlife landscape. An uncanny topography full of fated human beings and evil demons. They make sure to apply the punishment to the poor people. Crowds in sadness and pain. The illustration depicts such deadly sins as: pride, greed, lust, envy, gluttony, wrath and sloth or laziness. The Miserable Ones, victims, angry people. A ruthless thief. Fury, violence, lies. The soul's journey towards God according to Catholic Church.
illustration of The Fukushima problem, where the natural disaster triggers a much greater problem. I came up with the absurd idea of a totally flooded Tokyo city, took by giant Koi fish (replacing the traditional Japanese godzila myth, the terrible irradiated monster who destroys everything). The revenge of nature. But in this case a somewhat cynical revenge: in Japan these domesticated fish are the symbol of luck and an icon for the East. But they may also mean genetic mutation and human caprice.
