Fernando Pessoa

 An illustration of the poet Fernando Pessoa and his heteronyms that I made for my father. Fernando Pessoa is the largest figure, on bottom-right; then on bottom left is Ricardo Reis, on top left Alberto Caeiro and on top right Álvaro de Campos. To explain each one of them would take me an entire book and a lot would be left to say. I encourage you to check his bio and find out more about "one of the most significant literary figures of the 20th century".

The finished piece

The first stages: line work and gray tones
