My New Vegan Coloring Book is Out!!




Ever since I was little, I've been looking for ways to help save the environment, save animals, the Earth. I thought there was little for us to do with all the pollution we were creating, and at some point I felt really hopeless. About 9 years ago, though, I became a vegetarian thanks to some friends in Germany who taught me that there were actually better choices we could do. Then, about a year ago I decided to become a vegan and do even more for the environment, for the animals and for myself. I healed myself in a way I never thought would be possible. Then I thought I wanted more people to know about this, but I have never been the type to become an outgoing activist. There had to be something that, as an artist, I could do, something that could attract people. So I came up with the idea for this book. It took many months to create it, thinking of ways to deliver messages through positive images, researching a lot about the topic, then sketching the ideas, polishing them, then inking them, and finally putting it all together. Now "A Vegan Coloring Book" it's finally out there, and I hope it will be enjoyed by many and inspire them to make kinder choices for our planet and the animals.

New ebook!: A Raphanae story

A new ebook for kids!!
I started working on this while I was studying illustration. Feels like ages ago. I was really passionate about this project, it connected me to my childhood and inspired me very much. I wanted to revive the magic feeling of fantasy stories and movies I loved so much as a little girl. I had left the project aside for a long time, while working on my more "grown-up stuff"...
But I decided it was about time to dust it off, edit the text, the images, and make it ready for ebook format. And here it is! =D Available for Pre-order at Amazon! :




And here are some of the first sketches I made looong ago for this project:


 They are not this scary anymore! XD

I'm reviving this one...

It's such a strange coincidence...
While I began to edit and improve my oldest story (Apocalypse), all these strange events started happening on Earth. I was specifically working on the cover when I found out there was to be a total solar eclipse, which we sadly missed because of our location.
Anyway, I'm still very inspired and putting more efforts on this story, that according to my sister and a friend, needs more details, so I am adding that, I hope.
Here's a glimpse of the cover WIP.
And stay tuned, it should be published soon! (If the world hasn't ended by then).

The Enchanted Forest


There's a place in another world that hides all sort of creatures and magic.
Though surrounded by humans who threaten their survival, the Enchanted Forest is still there, with all his strange races and mysteries, always strong and eternal in the stories that are and will be written.

Many battles have taken place in the borders of the Enchanted Forest and many other battles have also struck the Forest itself. Centaurs and Harpies have never been able to get along, bringing always war inside the forest and causing the greatest wounds it has had.

With time the forest will find the balance again and live in peace, for a while...

And even when the stories are not yet complete, here are some images that illustrate a few scenes of them...
