As you might know already, I just had illustrated and released the book “Poesías de Extremadura para niños”. A very special project for me that touched my heart since the very beginning. It was a long process, full of hard work and hours, not just illustrating, but also compiling the poems and taking care of the layout till the extreme. No editors, no agents, just the writer -Natividad- and me (and the printer company making a speechless job).
Illustrating poetry seems to me more complicated than illustrating prose, but illustrating for children was a good fun!
This September we finally saw how the book was born. The “gestation” was more than nine months, almost a year I would say. But it is worth the effort. It looks just as we imagined and wanted and I think it radiates love :). Not saying this because it is my “kid” but… it is freaking beautiful and tender :P
