Brave New World

pag1Cristina Daura’s work reminds me of early Top Shelf comics. Her use of color, especially her work in Rojo Putón and Colibri, show her masterful control power of a desaturated, flat palette. Her graphic style is remarkably flexible, always with a meticulous sense of design, and though her subject matter has moved away from more shocking imagery to more pure explorations of rhythm and hue, I always admire it highly. It’s quite beautiful and tends to be more lyrical than most Spanish comix.

Here is a four page story Ms. Daura did for London’s Noborow Press, on the theme of Brave New World. It is a good introduction to her work, which you should most definitely track down at Ms. Daura’s own website.
