Did you know that the main character in Planet of the Apes (1968) had a chimpanzee phobia? Or that Angelina Jolie wore a blood-stained t-shirt during her wedding? Or that the glamorous Marilyn Monroe had an extra toe? Following years of research, the colourful careers and personal lives of Hollywood’s biggest names are uncovered as illustrator María Herreros presents a revealing album full of anecdotes, rumours and secrets. Born out of a passion for cinema, Barcelona-based Herreros goes beyond the screen to explore the curious, intriguing and obscure lives of more than 20 high-profile actors and directors, with Marilyn Monroe, Alfred Hitchcock and Quentin Tarantino among them. Having previously been exhibited in Madrid, Berlin and Quebec, Herreros now brings her illustrations to Miscelanea, as well as a large-scale piece created exclusively for the exhibition. She has previously collaborated with brands such as Coca-Cola and Reebok, and if you’re really impressed by this young artist’s work, you can get your hands on the book edition.
