A bit from Tita:
My favourite media are liquid watercolour, acrylic, and Chinese ink. And I absolutely love Japanese brushes.
I keep changing my mind about favourite authors and illustrators. But I think that Jean de Brunhoff, Maurice Sendak, William Steig, and Tomi Ungerer 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 all the lines of the Disney classics (most in Portuguese though).
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 with my husband and my cat Juca. But I consider myself a cat/dog/duck person.
When I was a child I liked to play "grown up". Now I'm a grown up who likes to play "child".
Me now and me at the age of 5.
