ANDRE DA LOBA, illustrator & toy maker
André da Loba, a clever Portuguese toymaker, illustrator of the whimsical, and defier of Newtonian physics, stands on the wall and lies on the floor in this image. This effect is a nod to the imaginative worlds that he builds. The effect may not be immediately visible, ergo we spilled a glass of water on the ‘wall.’ We shot this portrait directly above his studio, so I am fairly confident that we flooded his space during the course of this shoot. I asked André about his art:

What? My work?
My work will always be about you
and about me!…

about anarchists,
fortune-tellers,
fleeing kings
blasphemers and mutineers.

Poets and wall painters,
but not as much as it is about
tall dwarves,
black cats,
color visionaries
and survivors from shipwrecks.

People with odd limps,
dust in road humps,
Light-bulb changers,
professional vagabonds,
perfect stammers,
and spontaneous mutes.

It’s about strangeness.
It is about being secretly, secretly happy.
