Illustration F.21

Chair

This one was comissioned for an H.C. Andersen's exhibition one year ago.
Actually I hate this story(the brave Tin Soldier) but I took it as a challenge just because it is harder to illustrate something I don't like and was really curious about what would come out of my head.

In fact it was this chair...

Your image has a wonderful perspective - and again highly imaginative! I love the green eye shadow, bird holding hearts and mischievous cat!! Has a dream like quality - a pleasure to see :)

Hola Carla, me encantan tus ilustraciones porque son muy lúdicas y llenas de detalles, tienes un lenguaje muy personal y una técnica que le da a tus trabajos un carácter muy especial. Es un agrado siempre venir por ácá :)

You mastered the challenge! You give the story a vibrant, bright touch, infact, your illo completely outshines the story, because I remember it as a bit dull..

Olá, gosto muito do teu estilo de ilustração, muito plástico.
Boa atitude em relação ao desafio de ilustrar algo que não gostas muito, deve ter sido boa a sensação de prova superada :)
