Aquatints, experiments for a children's book

I've been working on a book project with writer Paulina Fariza for some time now. My first attempts of illustration don't really convince me so I'm trying now to create the backgrounds with aquatints.
This might be the way to go...

I just updated my web!

Just 10 days before the Children's Book Fair in Bologna, I managed to update my web... check it out, if you'd like a more complete impression of my work.

Now, my to-do list still seems endless. Instead of hiding easter eggs, I will be glueing my latest project together. Literally.

Welcome to my new world of etching!

I'm thrilled. Have I mentioned before that I moved into the printmaking studio of artist Roser Sales Noguera? Yes, I've turned into a student once again!
I absolutely love the delicate texture of etchings and aquatints and will certainly use this technique for an illustrated children's book I have in mind.
Here a some of my first experiments:

 PS: I can highly recommend classes with Roser, she's a brilliant teacher. Couldn't have been luckier. :-)
