Written by Lídia Garcia – Degree in educational psychology and pedagogy at UAB. Illustrated by Xavier Mula – Freelance illustrator and graphic designer.
“Little Nigua” is a story that explores the potential of the differences between word and image, explaining two realitys who live in the same environment: the main character (Nigua=flea) and that of the rest of the family. While the image explains the reality of the family, the text is
narrated by the flea, teaching us the place she believe occupies in the family core. This combination allows us to have two different views, two realities at the same time.
The character of flea is sensed throughout the whole story but it is not until the end of the story when the reader discovers that really is a flea. The surprise factor allows for reading, the reader can unleash your imagination and reread the story once the main character discovered.

“VOICES” – SOLO EXHIBITION BY XAVIER MULA
10 faces intersect at the same moment and place.
10 silent stories, naked.
10 moods you look.
Combining hand techniques such as tooling and digital is intended to convey the energy of different moods.The endless possibilities offered by the textures and colors that help the image becomes a “voice” that goes directly to the viewers.
“Voices” is as the perfect example of how, through the illustration, we can make possible a dialogue without words.
