Fables de la Fontaine. Book in Progress (post 29)


Here we have all my sweet friends from the book gathered together :)

The Hare and the tortoise look different from what you saw before because I did some changes in that illustration. I will talk about that tomorrow because it's something very interesting that I would like to share.

Animals copy

I love my new animal friends  so much! They're very real in my head, like people that I have known for a long time. The process of preparation and anticipation of these little buddies reminds me of when I had Natalie and Diego. I don't feel like I designed these characters, it's more like I gave birth to them.

Entering the children's world as an illustrator has been such a pleasure and fun adventure to me. Those little animals taught me so much! Now let's continue the fun with a little survey. I would love to know which one is your favorite animal from the list of 16:

To vote please see the box on the botton of this post. After you pick the animal just click on the blue arrow that says submit. I will share the results on Friday :)

Update: The survey reached the 100 votes which is the limit that Zoomerang.com let's you have under a free account. I will announce the results on Friday! You will be surprised to know which animal is the most popular! :)

I'm having a hard time choosing a single one because I love them all equally. But I feel something very special about the little ant. She's so quiet and modest. Just look her sweet eyes. She's making a huge effort carrying a giant weight on her back but she does it with such grace, she makes it look as if it is not that hard. I found myself the other day carefully watching a tiny ant on my desk, it was fascinating. Seeing such a tiny little thing, alive, moving around. Nature is wonderful.

Have a great day and see you tomorrow!
