Illustrations by Gabriel Pacheco
The work of the Mexican illustrator Gabriel Pacheco cannot be mistaken for anything else. The artist has developed an individual, memorable style. His works are often combined with quotations and excerpts of literary works. Combining text with his story illustrations seems to stem from his first published illustration which he created for the story written by his sister.
Pacheco has created a great portfolio, consisting of illustrations of children’s books, booklets of poetry and fantastic literature. His illustrations bring us to a foggy world of subtle colors, sometimes full of strange creatures. His work Is inspired by the art of Hieronymus Bosch and Marc Chagal:, but he has definitely made a style of his own.
