“For this Ilustrarte 14, we have crossed illustration for children with the playful and creative dimension of the act of playing, in a resolution that explores the formal characteristics of the renowned colorful toy blocks, timeless in its simplicity and potential for discovery.” says Cabrito and Diniz.

“It is noteworthy that the very first notion model has been literally assembled using a set of blocks purchased at a toy store.”


In all, 150 illustrations were shown in sets of foam blocks grouped, combined and recombined using a purely recreational logic, “extending the graphic game of the illustrations to a volumetric game that transforms space and defies our want to play.”
