segredos de uma avo coruja

secrets of a grandma owl

Project Description

Create 4 B&W illustrations to open the chapters of a book. The book was about a woman who became a grandmother and turn herself into a grandma owl, because in Brazil an over protecting mother or grandmother is an owl.  

After a meeting, I was requested to create illustrations using paper, just like the cover of “Brincando de fazer poesia“, a book I illustrated for the same publisher.
