Planeta Tangerina

Planeta Tangerina was elected as Best Children’s Publishers of 2013 for Europe at Bologna Children’s Book Fair. I’m an absolute fan of Planeta Tangerina so I’ll show you my favorite 3 books from them (just nottest now that they’re all from the same illustrator — Bernardo Carvalho).

High Tide by Bernardo de Carvalho

D for Dad by Isabel Martins and Bernardo de Carvalho

A Day on the Beach by Bernardo Carvalho

Have you read any book of Planeta Tangerina?

Do you have any book from any other winner publisher? I’m curious to meet them too!

Selfless Portaits I

Selfless Portraits is a very nice project where people around the world draw a facebook profile photo of some stranger. After you enter, you’ll need to choose the profile photo you wish to see drawn and a random photo of someone around the globe will be delivered to you. Then you’ll have 48 hours to draw it and only afterwards your drawn picture will be sent to you.

I already did mine of Tim Prezzano from NY as you can see.merged-Tim-Prezzano-1363861443Now I’m anxiously waiting for mine 🙂

I was expecting Spring tomorrow, but it seems like it starts today! Wasn’t it always at 21th of March? Oh well, it is my favorite season anyway, no prejudice of starting earlier 🙂

Hello Europe!


Hello Europe! is a project made by three friends. What’s their ideia? They’ll be going around Europe for 100 days in an RV, stopping in several cities and in each one they’ll go looking for street artists and choosing the 3 best artists by facebook votation.

By their words:
“Sometimes the best artists hide and find where least expected. A less visible art in front of everyone with so much meaning.
Sometimes the streets are flooded with art, music, color. With charismatic faces and talent which makes us stop and observe. Forgetting the rush, the stress and the bills to pay. We awaken our senses to receive the emotions they are offering us without knowing for sure they will receive something in return.”

If you want to support their project, go to Indiegogo where they have a campaign for raising funds. If wish to know more about Hello Europe! project visit their facebook page.

I’ll be posting news here as well!
