Bare shoulders, sails in the wind, original illustration made in 2020, published in Ana by Daniel Maghen in 2022. Signed. Watercolor and pencil on paper
43.7 × 61 cm (17.2 × 24.02 in.)
Jade, Kim, a Moorish tattoo artist, a Nubian slave The real working bases of her characters that Ana Miralles has are mental sketches. From this catalog in her head, the artist poses and composes the boxes of her comics. She can also, on the occasion of an illustration, extract a heroine from her frame and make her exist by herself, without precise reference to an adventure. Here, Jade's hand caresses the swell of her hair. A piece of her tunic floats as if in a breeze. The black veil scratches and draws in the passage the points of her breasts. A long thigh, a round calf, buckle the evocation. No need for jewels, tattoos, or decor: all that is needed is a naked background, white as in a shooting studio, to capture this moment, purer than that of a photo on the spot.
