The unpublished picturebook showcase 2022 selection
The Paraná Delta, in Argentina, is a unique place in the world where you find countless islands surrounded by rivers and streams. The rivers, the streams, the weather, the plants and the trees change the whole scene all the time.
In order to live here you have to follow the river rules.
How the idea for this book was born?
The isle is a book fully inspired in the place where I live.
The biggest challenge I had was finding a style that could fit everything I wanted to show, how the ordinary things of the city life still happen there but in a different and funny way. It was hard to decide which things about the delta I was going to show and which not, because there are many beautiful things!
From the beginning I knew the house was going to an element that repeats itself and does not change, it only observes. So I chose the seasons of the year, in order to show the constant changes around the house.
I worked on something very close to a «silent book», I wanted a story told almost entirely with images.
