Fausto






In April this year, Ediciones de la Flor, from Buenos Aires, published Estanislao del Campo's "Fausto", illustrated by me. I am very happy with the results. Written in the 1860's, it is the funny story of a gaucho who thinks he saw the devil in person when in reality what he saw was Gounoud's opera while visiting the big city.

Hi Oscar, for some reason a comment I had left previously disappeared. Well, it's a real pleasure to see your work on your blog. I've always been a big fan of your art. You're an inspiration to a lot of animators. Looking forward to seeing more.

Grillo's Fausto is something to marvel at. His devil is fantastic, wicked, and crazy as a mad dog but at the same time a bit thick --Grillo does not think the evil one is a bright one! This insight is one of many. Eduardo Stilman's prologue is learned and perceptive and the edition speaks volumes of Ediciones de la Flor's quality as publishers. The book is a must! I've got my copy at Amazon.

Grande, Maestro! Las recibí por mail, las tengo guardadas en una carpeta y, sin embargo, al verlas me producen el mismo entusiasmo de la primera vez.

Un abrazo,

Tute
