Gestation

Life on our Earth spins like a planet strong but vulnerable: her growing and rotting, her complexity and her caos. Our first decision was deepening in Her, and also in our nature. Cause even if we virtualize ourselves to death we can't scape the fact that we are just living things.

It was born with the intention of crafting a merging art mixing our specialities (poetry and illustration). It's poemdrawary or a drawemary.

Looking at the lichens, the roots fo the trees woking together with the rhizomes (fungi), the rifts and the waters… we allowed us every symbiotic cultural game because culture is human and natural. One proof is the natural symbiosis between music with poetry or mathematics.

Our rifts pretends to be a book that exposes the strenth and the fragility that the powers of nature hide. We choose to express it from our identity as natural individuals and communities.

Ultrasound

¿Is it possible to connect organically faith and science, the beach and the cosmos, culture and nature, the traces with the verses?

This book tries to explore the incredible ways that unite this seas. We discovered that, far from compiting, these knowledges try to cooperate with each other until they understand themselves.

Our Rifts is a collection of 28 drawems and poemaws connected, with nature as their centre and main character, across and essentially.

To sum it up, it pretends to be critic from the most natural sensitivity and the most cultural reasoning, from love and wisdom.

Style

It's not only a graphic book of poems. In contrast with other graphic books, our proyect, unites both arts, not isolating the poem in the left page and the ilustration in the right page. Our Rifts is a whole thing. This book's format is so authentic and ambitious that we almost haven't found any other example of a book like ours, in libraries and bookshops.

The drawems have from 2 to 4 pages. We used story-telling as the main technique to structure visually the order of the poems. The visual story let us build the graphic skeleton, the DNA that gave instructions to do this compositions.

In addition, we used enormous mind maps with words and forms, schematising in legends and elements: the natural ones (fire, earth, air and water) and the cultural ones (transformation, integrity, symbiosis y vulnerability).

They are also structured by seasons of the year.

Calendar

We want the books to be ready for the beginnings of March. If you don't live in Spain your package may come later (April-May). We wanted that you could enjoy the book as a spring present for you all.

Who are we?

We are masters of the uncertainty, expert surfers of this oceanic chaos. Life is impredictable and our ways mixed in this little boy. Just nature could be the protagonist. We both had similar ideas and hunger joined with desire of eating.

A philosophic illustrator and a biological poet. Coral R. Moya studied Graphic Design and she's the author of two illustrated albums (one tale and an artist's notebook). Alberto Becerro is a teacher, writer and poet in la Independiente. He's also the author of La Casa de Bouriquel (released in 2021) and he was part of books and poetry recitations in the radio. Our Rifts is our first daughter, and also our first real publication.
