VINYL COVER FOR YELLOW CAP
This job was for Yellow Cap, a ska band from Germany. They asked me to illustrate something with a truly brazilian vibe. So once again I appealed to brazilian legends. I made my own version of Vitória Régia, a ancient indigenous story about a girl who felt in love with the moon.
The village elders warned Naiá that when a girl was taken by the Moon, she no longer would be a human but a star in the sky. However, Naiá didn't care at all, once she was deeply in love with the Moon. That passion became a obsession at the moment Naiá didn't want to eat or drink anymore, she just want to admire the Moon.
Affected by Naiá's act, the Moon god decided to transform her in a different and unique kind of star: a star of the waters - Vitória Régia. For this reason the perfumed white flowers of this plant only open at night.
