A bit from Tita:
My favourite media are liquid watercolour, colour pencils, and Chinese/India ink. I absolutely love Japanese brushes.
I keep changing my mind about favourite children's writers and illustrators. But I think that Jean de Brunhoff, Maurice Sendak, William Steig will always be there.
My childhood was especially great because of my adventures shared with my younger brother.
I love Alien, Jurassic Park, and Monsters University. I also know the lines of most Disney classics (some of them in Portuguese).
When I travel I always buy a picture book from the place I am visiting.
My money usually goes to books, chocolate, and art supplies. Not always in that order.
I live in Glasgow with my husband and my cat Juca. I consider myself a cat/dog/dino person.
Still trying to connect with my inner adult.
