Cristóbal Joannon and Maritza Pérez
Fabulous, 10 Aesop's Fables
Witty animals, foolish animals, animals that think, silly animals that end at the bottom of a river. That's how they are, that's how we are too. A lot to learn from them to understand our world and to understand how our strange little heads work.

A few years ago she resumed drawing, her favorite childhood custom, and did not stop anymore. Since then she has studied illustration workshops in Chile, Spain and Portugal.
