Mushishi, commission, 2021

This work is a commission that I wanted to share with everyone. It is an illustration based on the Mushishi series/manga.

They are a series of individual chapters that narrate the journey of Ginko, the protagonist, through an imaginary Japan of the Edo and Meiji periods.

The “Mushi” are a kind of supernatural insects that are the cause of many inexplicable situations, Ginko is in charge of analyzing them and solving the situations that are in their way. It is a series very connected with nature and the supernatural.

I also wanted to show the work process, the sketches and discarded versions.
