"One retouching a day" THE BOOK
First of all, I would like to welcome every one who has come around here interested in this book.
My name is Ibai Eizaguirre Sardón, Advertising Art Director and fidgety by nature It is my pleasure to present to all of you the results of a challenge that started with: What if...?
What if I start doing a retouching a day and I upload it to the net? Followed by, What if I get the inspiration from the photos themselves? Still not satisfied I told to myself , What if I do it for a whole year? To conclude with, What if I put them all together in a book? Not being too prone to negative answers, here we are with the positive one in 21x21cm size, 278 pages and hard cover.
The content consists of 365 pieces created from more than 700 pictures of 430 authors. A cluster of surrealist images made out of things like animal-human hybrids, flying cars, ghosts and the odd uncommon kitten, among other nutty ideas.
It's been a very rewarding exercise, that allowed me to escape the boundaries of my profession and exploit my creativity prejudices about the characters typology or the subject matter of the pieces. A work that is free as much in its creation as in its interpretation, that has let me know, through the reactions in social media, how human vision may vary watching the same image.
In conclusion a challenge that has been, literally, my day to day during an entire year, and now I would like to share with all of you.
Where will the donations go?
Self publishing is a tricky business, specially in the case of a limited edition and one wants to look after the details. Donations will be invested in the book edition, printmaking production, an ad hoc packaging and shipping costs. In short, make true the illusion of having my first book published
On the right side of this page you can see all available benefits for investors. Besides the book you can choose any piece in A3 format. To pick the one for you can check the whole project in my instagram profile: @monocefalus_
