Angela Pelaez Illustration

The beginning of everything

The late afternoon of 24 of July 1969 will always stay in my mind. The Apollo mission to the moon just ended and returned to the earth.
I witnessed the landing module crossing the clear and blue sky to his final destination,the Pacific Ocean.
A dream vision that still follows me. Maybe that explains why the moon is always present in my work.

The moon in all possible styles, a half moon, a full moon, red moon...
in color pencils and graphite
or inkt and computer.
In these two techniques finally I found my way to illustrate my stories.
