Valladolid

Last week I went to this illustration workshop organized by Ilustrarte in Valladolid. I joined the workshop given by Emilio Urberuaga. The other one was by Svjetlan Junakovic. Great professionals and great persons, always ready to share ideas, knowledge and experiences with us.
Thank so much to Rafa Vivas and Nati Rodriguez for the awsome organisation and their kindness and care.
The best of all was to share 15 hours non stop, 5 days, with other colleagues from all over Spain. I hope we can see each other again!
To see more pictures, here.
For more information about incoming workshops organised by Ilustrarte here.

P.S. As you can see, I have started writing the blog in spanish as well as english. Some of my colleagues have some problems with english and even when I don't write very much I will do it in spanish too.
And this is a good time to explain that I'm a spanish illustrator, my father is spanish, I speak spanish and I dream in spanish (most of the time).
And I'm german too, because I was born in Germany, my mother is german, I have family in Germany and I spent sometime there. Please, don't let yourself get confused by my name, Natascha!



La semana pasada asistí a uno de los talleres que organiza Ilustrarte. Este era en Valladolid y estaban impartidos por Emilio Urberuaga y Svjetlan Junakovic. Ambos grandes profesionales y personas siempre dispuestas a compartir sus ideas, sabiduría y experiencia con nosotros. La organización fué estupenda ya que tuvimos actividades paralelas muy interesantes: visita a la ciudad, teatro, cine,... (Muchas gracias Rafa Vivas y Nati Rodríguez por vuestra amabilidad y cariño).
Lo mejor ha sido compartir 15 horas seguidas con compañeros ilustradores de toda España. Espero que volvamos a reencontrarnos.
Para ver más fotos del taller: aqui.
Para más información de los próximos talleres que organiza Ilustrarte: aqui.

P.D. Como veis he empezado a escribir en español también, ya que a alguno de vosotros os resulta menos complicado y aunque no escribo mucho, a partir de hoy también en español.
Y aprovecho la ocasión para explicar que soy una ilustradora española, que hablo español y que sueño en ese idioma.
Además soy alemana porque nací en Alemania, mi madre es alemana, tengo familia en Alemania y he pasado determinado tiempo allí.
Así que no os dejéis confundir por mi nombre, Natascha!

And there is my handsome merman!

You can preorder now the new book by Posie gets cozy.

I was invited by Nicole to participate in the project e-coloriage with other talented french illustrators. All the subjects are about safeguarding our planet.


It will be a book for colouring, but in the meantime you can print the illustrations and give them to your kids, so they can colour them.
You can join the Fan-club and post the images on Flickr to share the results.

Have fun!

Books




Two great books to share with you:
"La visite de la petite mort" by Kitty Crowther and " Au pays des tatous affamées"(The land of the hungry armadillos) by Lawrence David and Frédérique Bertrand.
The first one is a story about the little lady of death and loneliness.
The other one is about a brother and sister, selfishness and love.
I highly recommend yoy both of them.
