Rewriting History

It´s time to awaken the inspiration.

"The stories tell us that once there was a girl named Carmesina that managed to restore the colours of the world. It is also said that when that girl grew up a saddening melancholy overwhelmed her brushes and imagination. To recover the lost inspiration, she will have to return to the World of Forgotten Colours, accompanied by Black Cat, and rewrite history."

Inspiration Dormant. Forgotten Colours Revisited is a graphic novel that presents a journey into the realm of tales, where we will meet again with characters from Forgotten Colours and meet new ones; where we'll experience red passion, yellow joy, ochre laziness and dark fears... And so on until covering an entire palette of hues that will allow us to discover our true colours and recover the inspiration to create, to dream, in short, to live.

The Creative Minds

Getting to know authors

Although four names appear on the cover of the book, there's a lot of work behind by the whole Play Creatividad team: Francesc, Alex and Ivannis with the website and applications; Teo, with the layout and music; Carlos, bringing the images to life; and so the entire management team and coordination as Efrén, Montse, Carlos, Merxe, and collaborators, editors and translators.

Silvia González Guirado

Story writer by vocation and heart

Since she was small she was fond of imagining; and found, in writing, her vocation and means of expression. She studied Art History and Media Communications, has written Forgotten Colours and Inspiration Dormant, and is Play the cat's voice in the blog Historias de un gato (A Cat's Stories).

David Garcia Forés

The man who almost met Carmesina

As a child he already loved to draw and even though being surrounded by numbers, as an Economics student, he chose design and illustration as a profession. You can see this in Forgotten Colours, Inspiration Dormant and, soon, in a graphic adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe's stories.

Marta García Pérez

I will outline my own plan, which is to enjoy

In art class she discovered her love for pencils and colours. She studied Graphic Design and currently illustrates everything she can and more, with her "martuko" style. Besides participating in Forgotten Colours and Inspiration Dormant, she enjoys doing crochet in her her spare time.

Desiree Arancibia
