At This Time of the Year

I'm excited to present "At This Time of the Year".
"At This Time of the Year is a story about generosity and thankfulness, a story about those who help create magical moments of Christmas giving; we owe them the Christmas magic!" - Maria Tzoutzopoulou
I worked for the writer Maria Tzoutzopoulou on this project several months ago. Since I became a freelancer, she was the first person trusting me to illustrate a book and was the starting point for me to became an independent illustrator. I thank her immensely for that!
It was a big pleasure for me to illustrate this story. Finally having the opportunity to sit and work with my beloved watercolors, trying to convey the Christmas spirit, love and friendship which this book is all about.
This is a really nice Christmas story with 12 color illustrations done with lotta love - a really sweet Christmas gift for a child in your family.
Thank you Maria, and thank you everyone! Enjoy Christmas time!

Feliz 33º Aniversário Ana Beleza

Esta é uma encomenda do Carlos Dos Santos Almeida para o aniversário da sua encantadora namorada Ana Beleza Ferraz. Foi especial para mim pois o Carlos é alguém que me acompanha e acredita em mim á muitos anos, pelo que lhe estou muito grata. Outro motivo é a Ana ser uma modelo tão encantadora - Parece uma virgem Renascentista misturada com uma menina de Balthus. Já a tinha pintado à 10 anos atrás e irei voltar a pinta-la certamente, é um verdadeiro deleite. Muito obrigada aos dois! 
This is an order from Carlos Dos Santos for his girlfriend Ana Beleza Ferraz aniversary. Its was special for me because Carlos has been following and believing in me for many years and I am so thankful to him for that. The other thing is that Ana is an amazing model. She is a mix between a Renaissance virgin and a Balthus Lolita in my eyes. I painted her 10 years ago, I painted her now and I hope to paint her again soon, it's a true delight. Thank you both so much!

I did a serie of drawings inspired by the song "One" interpreted by Johnny Cash. I was thinking of it in relation to the way humans treat other living beings. I wanted it to appeal to peace, love, respect and kindness towards nature.
"You said love is a temple
Love the higher law
Love is a temple
Love the higher law
You ask me to enter
But then you make me crawl
I can't be holding on
To what you've got
When all you've got is hurt" - said Earth to Humanity.
