Entrega Especial was born of the need to make the most of the drawings sprouting throughout the studio, as we are generating material constantly.
The idea was to imagine that every week someone receives, at their front door or in their mailbox, a collectible postcard with a totally different drawing every time.
In this way, these drawings—our sprouts—would bloom, and we would have the perfect excuse to create all kinds of images, with any subject, technique, or size: total freedom.
And so we began uploading the postcards to the Entusiasta Gallery website. Although we wanted to start at the beginning of the year, the first week was impossible due to the attack on the offices of Charlie Hebdo. For this reason, it was not until January 12, 2015 that the first Entrega Especial was published: “Hatsman.”
As we progressed, we watched the project begin to take shape: design and illustration, word games, various languages, strange characters, and graphic experimentation all coexisted in harmony and invited us to look forward to the next delivery. (At least, that was the intention because the truth is that we never got much response from recipients, only from those closest to us.)
Some illustrations were made specially and others were reused or recontextualized. Still others form thematic series. All the special deliveries have their own stories to be completed by whomever contemplates them.
Finally, seeing all of our postcards together in a book seemed like the best way to share them. We hope you enjoy the collection.
