Rodrigo Tavares is a Brazilian lawyer and writer. He has published books such as Noite Escura (“Dark Night”) and Andarilhos (“Wanderers”), as well as eBooks such as A Tropeada (“The Cattle Troop”) and Contos Sangrentos (Bloody Tales).
Tavares’s tales of terror use the culture of his region, but escape from the traditional, play with the fantastic genre in a modern way. Likewise, I tried to make the illustrations in an aesthetic out of the ordinary for this style of stories. For Bloody Tales, I did a series of illustrations with geometric characters, filled with solid colors, noise textures and halftones.
