Platero y yo Plate Lettering
I created the illustration for the Platero es… annual children illustration exhibition in Madrid in Conde Duque. Platero y yo is a master piece written by Spanish writer Juan Ramón Jiménez in 1914 about Platero, a donkey. Platero is the name of the donkey which is a referent toplata (silver), the coat color of the animal. I chose to make a play on words and reinforce the concept using a plate as a canvas.
