If The Night Would Be A Spirit - Illustrations By David Álvarez

“I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night.”

– Sarah Williams

In a gentle mixture of Hayao Miyazaki with Lewis Carroll, the surreal drawings of David Álvarez take me to a place in my childhood where every single fantasy was possible and magic was as real as my hands and the floor I stepped on. Maybe like me, you can too dive deeply into his work - and in there, look face to face at the fine elegance of the ethereal.

“The sky grew darker, painted blue on blue, one stroke at a time, into deeper and deeper shades of night.”

– Haruki Murakami
