El Esqueleto de los Cuentos

"El Esqueleto de los Cuentos" is one of the workshops I took in CASA. It lasted 4 days from 4:00 PM to 8:00 PM. I learned a lot about what takes to start a story, we worked here a project of a simple book of 7 pages for little Children. A children books doesn't always has to have a morale, it can be meant for inspiration, entertaining, bringing a laugh  out of you or just sharing the simple things of life. We learned about styles, style doesn't has to be just drawing it can be anything that you want it to be and that you enjoy doing it. Here is a photo of the dummy book of my story, about a little kitten that runs in the morning and one day encounters a big, BIG dog. Enjoy:
