Drawings by Argentinian Illustrator, Catriel Martinez

 In life, the external form does not  indicate the internal form. Appearances are almost always deceptive. But in art, appearance is all that exists. The internal and the external are one in the same. These characters are deformed by most standards, but they still have an uplifting quality. Their quirky little faces with lopsided eyeballs and large swirly noses are sweet, genuine reflections of what people really are: a complex marriage of  flaws and strengths that reflects a familiar sort of beauty.

The pink paper above contains my own doodles, many based on designs of his, others exact imitations.
