illustration for the short story "Transglottism" from the book "Zugzwang", by Eduard Màrquez. Translated from Catalan by Lawrence Venuti.
Transglottism was the first illustration I started working on for Asymptote, in november last year. The story takes place in a stuffy library auditorium, where a student and the simultaneous interpreter, in the middle of the boredom starts and amorous affair, through the air and the airphones. It's a resourceful and amusing story and on the site there's also another beautiful short story by Eduard Màrquez, which I recommend you all to read.
