Lolita

Lolita

'Lolita' by Vladimir Nabokov is famous and controversial novel, about aging Humbert Humbert's obsessive passion for the nymphet Dolores Haze - Lolita. It is a love story with unhappy ending.
I chose this novel for my first project of BA Illustration this year, where I wanted to show my emotions fro illustrations, which are colorful and watery, as a story is unsettled and loss of control.
