Before they grow up

This is a new collaboration I have started with “Antes que eles creçam” (“Before they grow up“), a wonderful Brazilian blog about children, families, women and all things creative and inspiring.

One of the founders, Cristina Leão, is a good friend of mine and one of the most talented writers I have ever met. This blog is in Portuguese though, so not everyone will be able to enjoy it, but do take my word for it: it’s great.

I will be illustrating a section of the blog called “Historinhas para sonhar” (“Tiny tales to make you dream” – something like that). Every week there will be a new story and one illustration. Here is the first one, published yesterday:

More to come next week.
