Special Annoucement

So this is it. 

Last thursday I sat for my last exam of Third Year of career. I have been preparing this for MONTHS! I was simply too nervous, waiting outside the classroom for the professors to debate. Finally it concluded in a happy ending:

Now I’m not a normal person anymore. I’m a Technician in Illustration! (I know that the name of the title sounds weird, but I don’t find another way to translate it)

I proudly present to you my first children’s book: I have a Cat

Esto es todo.

El jueves pasado me presenté al último examen del Tercer Año. Estuve preparándolo por MESES! Estaba muy nerviosa, esperando afuera del aula a que los profesores debatieran. Finalmente todo terminó en un final feliz:

Ya no soy una persona normal. Soy Técnica Ilustradora!

Orgullosamente presento mi primer libro para niños: Tengo una Gata

Painted completely with acrylics, 32 pages, full colour!

It took more that I thought, but I did it!

Pintado completamente en acrílico, 32 páginas, todo color!

Me llevó más tiempo del que pensé, pero lo logré!

The text inside is made by my own hand lettering! And it’s based on a little song for kids. Some words are untranslatable (because they doesn’t exist in my language either, their are made up for how they sound), but I’ll make my best for you:

I have a Cat.

Etic, peletic

Furry and bald

going so Happily!

El texto está hecho con hand lettering. El libro está basado en una canción infantil. Alguna palabras no tienen significado alguno, están diseñadas para que sean divertidas de pronunciar en voz alta. Y dice así:

Tengo una Gata

Ética, pelética

Pelada, peluda

Pelimpampluda!

And she had six kittens

Etic, peletic

Furry and Bald

Going so Happily!

Que tuvo seis gatitos

Éticos, peléticos

Pelados, peludos

Pelimpampludos!

If the cat wasn’t

Etic, peletic

Furry and Bald

Not going so Happily!

The kittens wouldn’t be

Etic, peletic

Furry and Bald

Not going so Happily!

Si la gata no hubiera sido

Ética, pelética

Pelada, peluda

Pelimpampluda!

Los seis gatitos no hubiesen sido

Éticos, peléticos

Pelados, peludos

Pelimpampludos!

This is the process, painted. With the early sketches and penciled pages, everything weights around two kilograms!

Este es el proceso, pintado. Con los primeros bocetos y los lápices, todo pesa cerca de dos kilos!
