The importance of trees | Alicia's giveaway



Here's my entry for Alicia Padrón's giveway. The theme is the importance of trees in celebration of the publication of her wonderful book, "The wish trees." I did a blog entry for Illustration Friday some time ago for "Twist" which showed a little girl playing on a swing. It gave me the idea for this illustration: a tree as a place of play and rest, and also a home.

Aqui está a minha contribuição para a competição de Alicia Padrón. O tema é a importancia das árvores, para comemorar a publicação de seu novo livro, "The wish trees." Fiz uma ilustração para Illustration Friday com o tema "Torcer" que mostrava uma menininha brincando num balanço. Foi o que me deu a idéia desta ilustração: a árvore como um lugar de brincadeira e descanso, e também como um lar.

  1. Monica es Hermoso, los colores, como usaste la acuarela, ese conejo travieso, la ardilla que abraza el arbol y el perro durmiendo bajo el abrigo del arbol, me encanta. Es una ilustracion muy sensible!
