This week has been crazy. In between doing advertising and illustration, I have hardly had time to do anything else.
I am currently developing more Willow Magic fashion illustrations for Wardrobe Mistress, which is such a great project! I am also illustrating two children’s books and a book of short stories, which are amazing projects too and VERY demanding. I am so glad Friday is finally here! Though I know the next 2 days won’t be enough for me to do everything I want to do:
♥ I want to draw loads, but I also want to go out and enjoy the weather (preferably without the pollen allergies)
♥ I want to finish the books I am reading
Just a quick note on this last beauty: Le journal du petit poucet or “The diaries of Tom Thumb“ is a French children’s book. It is so adorable and funny, I’m completely obsessed. Every page is stunning to look at. The illustrations are by Rebecca Dautremer, who is one of my favourite artists (I’ve talked about her before here) and it was written by Philippe Lechermeier. Unfortunately it is not available in English yet (I have it in Portuguese) but it should be very soon.
I usually read about 4-5 books at the same time, which is very chaotic but it’s how I like it. From trashy novels (love them!) to classics (love them too!), it takes me ages to read them, but in my defense, I always finish every single one.

How about you? What do you want to do this weekend? :)
Lots of love from Lisbon
