New book

Next month will be the launch of “Pele de Dentro” (Translation: “The Skin Inside“), a lovely collection of poems by Brazilian author and journalist Júlia Gaspar. I was commissioned to illustrate the book cover. Take a look:

Book projects are the best! Last year I collaborated with two fantastic writers to create Tales of the Sunset, a beautiful illustrated book of short stories. It’s still one of my favourite projects to date and I think it always will be. There is something about holding a book that you helped create that fills your heart with pride and joy. Plus, I’m a huge book lover, which definitely adds to the general delight!

For “The Skin Inside“, I was also asked to illustrate a couple of the poems, which I think added a really nice touch to the pages. I promised not to post too many spoilers so I’ll hold on to them for a while, if that’s okay. I’ll post my favourites here as soon as the book hits the shelves in a few weeks. Yay! Exciting! :0)

Lots of love,
