The book won the Merit award at the 3x3 Annual Picture Book Show n.11.

I started my illustrations sketching digitally on pictures taken from my grandma's family album. The lullaby tells a dreamlike story about a child that doesn't want to go to sleep, so I decided to use pictures of my mother and father as kids.


Layer after layer the final illustrations took shape.


Here's a few pages from the book.
