Corazón Salvaje

Corazón Salvaje mixes digital animation of my drawings with film/photo textures, and shadow play to explore the mysteries of the body, metaphysical truths and dichotomies. And all in only 5 minutes and 9 seconds! Some have labeled it "sublime". Others have seen it as a parable of the creative process. While another saw in it "an amazing confederacy of pirate organs, rogues, in collusion to end us!".
