The Rich Boy.

These are the illustrations for F. Scott Fitzgerald's story The Rich Boy, published by Editorial Metropolisiana in Spain. They gave me complete freedom to choose the text on which I was going to work. After reading many stories from different periods and authors, I found a couple of Fitzgerald stories that could be complementary and also offered me the opportunity to develop some visual metaphors throughout the book. In the first one, The Rich Boy, I looked for the way to treat a set of illustrations as a narrative itself, so they could be read as a development with a presentation-knot-and-outcome of this visual idea. In these illustrations it is shown the story of the couple, from the beginning, when they are centered and united, and how gradually they spread over time and illustrations. The distance between the characters is shown also in the image until we get to the unfolded pages of the last illustration.
