SOAR



“Soar” and “The best of 2007” are this week’s themes for “Illustration Friday” and “Inspire me Thursday” respectively. For me, the best of the 2007 was getting into illustration and blogging; challenging my creativity while meeting a lot of great people! So, here is my dear Zappy, my first character, between soaring bubbles and balloons…enthusiastic about this new year; he just wants to keep evolving, learning, and sharing his adventures with you all!

New Year's Giveaway! - Sorteo de Año Nuevo!
I’m giving away the 2 original hand-drawn illustrations as bookmarks, 2.5x7 inch. To participate in this “new year’s giveaway” you just leave a comment on this post and the 2 winners will be announced by the end of the 1st week of 2008. – Happy New Year - Para participar en el sorteo de estas ilustraciones en forma de marca libros, dibujo a mano 2.5x7 pulgadas, solo tienes que dejar un comentario en esta entrada, los 2 ganadores serán anunciados a finales de la primera semana del 2008. – Feliz Año -
