April Calendar

Hello there!
It's that time of the month again!
March flew by so fast, some important things happened that will keep me busy all through april and hopefully things will turn out great.
If you read my March post you know that this months calendar was already almost finished. This is probably the reason I'm not late this month but who cares?

There's also a small change, the desktop version is bigger this month as some people were having a hard time resizing it. If it's too big for you, resizing it will probably do the trick.
If you find something you think could be better not be shy to say so.

I can fly - book review

Hello there,

this second book review comes because I loved this book so much that I wanted to tell the world about how awesome it is.

I Can Fly was written by Ruth Krauss and illustrated by Mary Blair and is part of the Little Golden Book Classics collection.

This book from 1951 and renewed in 1979 is a small rhyme about a little girl with a lot of imagination that plays with a different animal in each spread.

My favourite thing about this book as to be the illustrations. I didn't know Mary Blair's works before but found them so magical that a book with a selection of her from this collection is already on its way.

The book ends (I've seen that in other edition this comes in the begining but I actually prefer it in the end) with a lovely bordered sheet of music called "I can fly" in which the lyrics are the text of the book.

What better book to read in an afternoon in the sun?

If you want to buy it you can for only €4.23 for example in Book Depository.

See you soon.

March Calendar

Hello there!
This month's calendar is already available,  and just one day late! Maybe next month it'll be published on day 1.
This calendar was a difficult one, I started in with a carnival theme and then remembered it'd only last for 4 days and decided to give up on that idea. After that I started one inspired by easter but then realized easter is only in april this year. I ended up with this illustration vaguely inspired by spring.
The good thing is I already have next month's calendar started.
Also, this month I tried to step out of the comfort zone (which is one of the goals of this project) and the illustration was made on photoshop and with brushes I don't normally use.
Anyway here it is:
