Winter Expedition book

Zimowa Wyprawa, or Winter Expedition in english, was one of the four books I illustrated for Zielona Sowa and written by Urszula Pitura. Again a little set with the book alone plus one of the inside of the book.

It has similar characteristics to the last one I posted some days ago, but with a red fox (and friends) as a protagonist ;)

By the way, you know these nuts come from the walnut tree, right?. Well, my last name, Nogales, is the plural of how we name/translate that tree here in Spain (nogal in the singular and nogales when it's more than one tree). So I couldn't help drawing this particular kind of nuts, it made smile :)

Again, it can be bought if you are from Poland through Zielona Sowa web.

Here is a photo of a detail of the back of the book:

With this book, let me wish you a happy new year! At least here in my country, these holidays will last till January 6th, though I hope you can enjoy the last days of these days. My best wishes for you for the start of this new year!

Winter is here, so is Holidays time! Hope you enjoy them!

I wanted to do something a bit more overloaded for this year (actually I contained myself, believe me), and I must say it was really fun... Who would live there? Would you like to live in that kind of house :)?

These days I'm busy drawing and taking care of things for these celebrations. Busy for sure, but with energy.

Again, I hope you enjoy these days (which in the case of my country will last till 6th January)! I will try to post something more this week, at least showing one of the books I illustrated this year.

Have fun and be happy!

Snowflakes book

Here is one of the four children books I illustrated for Polish publishing house Zielona Sowa and written by Urszula Pitura. Finally, some photos of it taken by me (Ssadly without good enough photography equipment and not a good place to take photos. Hello natural light, indoor escene, and at-hand atrezzo :D)!

Winter is almost here, and so is Holiday time! All these books have winter related stories.

Concretely, this one ("Snowflakes" would be its title in English) is about a little bunny discovery duing winter :). It has ten pages in total and full color. Hard cardboard, its size is 19x19 cm. On the next photo you can have an idea with my hand pictured. In this case, it's the first two pages you can find when you open the book, plus the original illustration below.

I'm really happy how it turned out! They, all the four of them, are my little joy, and one of the best things that happened to me me this year 2015.

Again, it can be bought of you are from Poland through Zielona Sowa web.

I plan on doing a new post with every book during this winter ("still life" photo plus a photo from inside), so three to go, please keep an eye if you are curious! Hope you have a nice day and enjoy this almost here winter!
