This year, I have decided to skip the Frankfurt Book Fair. I did attend last year and it was a great experience to be there, but it also taught me I am not a good fit to the German publishing market and that it would probably be better to stick with the Bologna Children's Book Fair and Montreuil Salon instead :-) What I did though was complete a few titles that will fight for the publisher's and editor's attention. Besides the Christmas Around the World book I did a few Activity Books. One of them is ABC Activity Book that I did for iSeek in cooperation with Illustopia Agency.
Long time no see! I know! Just when I thought it's going to be a slow summer (and I decided to sign up for an intensive French language course), I received so many project proposals I don't even know what my name is anymore. These illustrations come from come from very fun projects- two activity books for preschoolers. Thanks to my wonderful agent Ines Silva from illustopia, I have been able to work on several of these and hopefully there will be more in the future. Hope you like them!
Last week, I have received this colorful book in my mailbox - Abecedario Maluco, written by Luisa Ducla Soares, illustrated by me in cooperation with the wonderful Illustopia agency. I am really happy about it, took a few pictures with my phone this morning, hope you like them! The book was published by Porto Editora in Portugal this year.
