who came to visit me this time?

Sometimes I like to draw directly with the brush just to see who comes by to say "Hi!"

Illustration Friday #10

Hum...made it to number 10!


This one was made for a magazine's article with the topic "When children lie".
Three months ago. I came up with this.
Though in fact it is really not broken it may suit this topic.

Little boy is saying: "I didn't do it."

All the corners of my world

I was born inside a tree.

I am the little girl- who- found- out- she- was- a- wolf.

I am the red wolf with the wings of love.

Blue is the colour of my soul, yellow is the colour of my heart.


“Why do we have wings?”

Wanted to know the little girl who- found- out- she- was- a- wolf?

“If one flies really high there will be someone to go along?"

“I don’t know.” said the Cat…

But I stretched my wings and flew just the same.

And now I know

all the corners of my world.

To better understand illo "cold"

To better understand my illustration Friday “Cold” which was done last year for an article exactly with the same topic, I have to say that when I was young and caught a cold my mother always made me suck these tablets called VALDA which, at first, were all sweet and tasty and then when the sugar coat was over it had the most awful taste...maybe they still have.
