Please let's welcome a new member of our book crew! Mister Grasshopper! He's one of my favorite characters. Maybe because I have such happy memories of grasshoppers from my childhood in Cuba. I used to play in a huge grass area that was full of grasshoppers, some of...

Papercutting is a very demanding activity on your hands. When I started out I got hurt easily because the muscles involved in holding the knife while applying pressure were still undeveloped. After a few years though, I have noticed that a whole set of muscles have...

Fables de la Fontaine. Book in Progress (post 10)

The fable that I'm working on now is The Tortoise and the Hare. A very good fable with an important lesson behind. The moral of the story is that slow and steady wins the race. I can say that the "slower" I work, the more I get to accomplish. Slow to me means savoring...
