Title of my Sketchbook :
Endavant indepenència ? !

Sketchbook abstract :
Endavant indepenència ? !

A 120-​page sketchbook filled with content on the topic “300 years of Barcelona | Catalonia”. This sketchbook deals with the human chains, demonstrations, and perhaps soon a democratic decision : the Catalans are apparently serious about their independence. But what speaks for or against a joint Spain ? The advantages and disadvantages will be explained by means of twenty illustrations with accompanying titles. They show the situation partly in an ironic and exaggerated way, but then again in a deadly serious way. My project is for Spaniards, Catalans and all other Europeans and non-​Europeans that are interested in their “conflict“. In the end, readers can ask themselves which side they are on or remain on the neutral line.
