We are in Madrid for the next issue: Edhv/Mdrd.
It’s going to take three days of painstaking labor to get the job done. But hey, somebody’s got to do it.
The Mdrd taskforce consisting of: Daan Melis, Kim Hemmes, Bart Haans, Jeroen braspenning, Sjoerd Koopmans, Lenneke Heeren, Raffaela Vandermühlen and Remco van de Craats, Went to Madrid to try and capture the city with pen and paper. The weather was nice but in the shadow it was freezing cold. After a few hours it was impossible to draw because our hands were to cold.
On Sunday evening we put all our drawings together. We planned to make a giant collage with them but there was something missing. Then, after some discussions and rethinking we came up with the plan to use a backlight and use the shine through effect of the paper to give it a misty dimension. It turned the drawings into a kind of animation of follow-up images.
