These drawings were done as part of a series of mixed-media / etchings I did at Hunter College in NY city. They belong to a series titled Diario de Bordo. Many begin with a one-of a kind etching (I almost never do multiples or editions) and they get incorporated into a mixed-media collage/drawing, often with various layers of translucent paper. The pseudo-science illustrations are a direct consequence of having grown up with a micro-biologist in my house (my dad), and the narrative probably has something to do with the many fantastic stories from my mother, who studied comparative literature and did her thesis on Clarice Lispetor.
