Ricardo Lopez Ortiz- Horacio Quiroga

Here's a portrait of Horacio Quiroga, a fantastic latin american writer who excelled at portraying mental illness, hallucinatory states, death and the supernatural. His book of short stories "Stories of Love, Madness and Death" is incredibly dark and tragic. I highly recommend it


  1. Great expressive drawing! I'll have to check him out, I love Roberto Bolano's books and have been looking for some more Latin American writers to read.
