The Tale of the Magpie and the Spinning Top
Pencil on Vilaseca paper, 2021
17cm W x 23cm H
A drawing about Guillermo’s return to his village after a year abroad in France. The characters are of two French authors: Anne-Louis Girodet (the central character), and Simón Saint-Jean (by the inkwell, beneath the magpie). The magpies are regular visitors in his garden, and the play of the spinning top with the two authors is reminiscent of the way the birds play in his garden.
