This year I took a break traveling for a couple of months in Chile (tiring and amazing). I came back to some good news to have been invited to the Sharjah International Book Fair in the UAE.
My illustrations were selected as second place winners in the exhibition. There were some really fantastic illustrators in the exhibition, so while I am very grateful for the prize, I think arguably there were equally deserving illustrators to hold this spot. In any case, the visit, the fair, and connections were so nice. Particular thank you to Fereshteh Najafi, Sonja Danowski, Valentina Piacenza, Daniel Garson Cabral, Islam Zian-Alabdeen and many many others who made the trip so special.
