In 2018 I had the chance to participate in a charity project, a little book published in Spain, titled “Lo raro” (The odd thing”), promoted by the Council of Robregordo (Madrid). The funds from this book would be destined to the research on rare diseases. Apart from the cover, it includes two more of my illustrations, one for an amazing short story by José Mercurio and the second for a poem by Gloria Fuertes, one of the most beloved Spanish authors during my childhood. It was a honour for me having the opportunity to do these works.
I used mixed media on all ilustrations: for the cover, I used soft pastels and charcoal over acrylic paint; for “El hombre del sombrero” (The man in the hat), I used colour pencils, charcoal and acrylic paint. And for “El pastor de gatos” (The cats shepherd) I used colour pencils and watercolours.
