I was inspired by Icarus, who ventured to soar too close to the sun on feather and wax wings. If he was in love with the light, this may just as well be a narrative of forbidden love,” the author says of the illustrated storey of Icarus and the Sun.

Gabriel Picolo, a Brazilian artist, is the creator of this beautiful yet terrible storey about passion, fires, forbidden fruits, and loss. He is a conventional and digital illustrator who rose to attention in 2014 when his 365-day drawing-a-day project gained a big number of fans.

“Among other things, I derive inspiration for my sketches from Studio Ghibli, Disney, and video games,” the artist stated on Patreon. “I enjoy drawing something that both other people and myself can understand.”

Icarus and the Sun is an illustrated love storey based on the Daedalus and Icarus myth, which tells of a man who died after flying too close to the blazing sun with his feather and wax wings. Gabriel’s greatest love storey is beautiful, unique, and terrible all at the same time.
