That's my folio!

Now I have a page in a website called That's my folio. Since my website is really outdated I thought it was a good idea to have my portfolio somewhere else. I like the layout and the tools available. They also have a blog where you can post your news. Check out here!

Activity with the kids

This month I had the opportunity to create and apply an art activity with a group of children from 4 to 5 years old. That's what I did:

So, they had to complete the drawing, color, cut and then assemble the flower. As I expected they did a great job! Children have an unexpected and imaginative way of looking at things that adults can't anticipate. This activity will be a part of a bigger project I'm working on. I found out that it makes me really happy to be a part of the creative process and to work side by side with children as an illustrator and as an educator. It's one of those moments in your life when something clicks inside your head and life starts to make more sense, if you know what I mean...but anyway here's what they did:

 I love how they assembled the parts differently, mixing leaves and petals and using unexpected colors. I will post some more of this activities I'm working on.

This is something I did for Chirp Fun magazine (January issue). I like the one with the meditating monster...everybody needs some quiet time now and then...

2 illustrations I did for CEC Éditions. The first one shows a porcupine and what he loves to eat and the second one some kids playing with a ball.
