My friend Christina (@iprigipessa , blog here ) who is a very talented blogger, mother and inspirational creature in general, one day impulsively she wrote a magnificent text about a Mother’s thinking while preparing her child for the first day at school (while the child keeps responding to all the mother doubts and fears…in a humorous way).
When I read it, I was really touched and awakens my emotions (since I have a child in that age too…) and decided that I wanted to illustrate it – no matter what.
Here are some of my illustrations (but only 3 of them since it is my recent work and still under the creation process…)
take a look- and tell me what emotion evokes to you…
An Elephant – Astronaut
“Out in the desert and in the wilderness , lived an Elephant and a Banana tree..
They were close friends.
One day the Elephant had a strange dream…
He dreamt of flying in the Universe and around were shining stars
He was wearing his astronaut uniform but it happened to be really small…
-” What is going on here, where am I ?”.. the elephant asked himself…”
(to be continued…)
Some pics of the making progress…
