BEYOND AWESOME




































So today I was featured in Estée's blog and I think that deserves a story: A couple weeks ago I wrote Estée a little mail telling her how much her videos make my mornings a little more brighter. You may not know, but a few months ago I moved to Berlin with Ed, my husband. We both are trying to pursue our dreams: I want to become a better illustrator, and Ed wants to become a better playwriter. So we jump into this huge space of dreams and fear, sold all our stuff and moved to Germany. Just us two, and our two fat cats: Hamburger and Cereal.

Let me tell ya, the thing it hasn't been easy: I still got a lot of troubles with the language, adjusting to a new country (with different paper work, traditions, schedules, medical insurance and a lot of other stuff) and the most important thing: being apart my friends and family.

So in a way, all this youtuber community, specially Estée's videos, have made me feel less lonely this past few months. I always felt that, when someone is doing something great and awesome, I have to write her/him: illustrators, musicians, bloggers, friends, youtubers, anyone. Cause, let me tell you, theres nothing more awesome than telling someone "you're amazing, keep doing what you're doing" or better: receive those kind of mails. So that's why I wrote Estée, because she's doing awesome things. I been follow her videos since two years now, and I always loved her personality and her honesty (don't we all?).

Anyway, she came up with this idea of feature me on her blog and I was shock! Huge honor to be there. Thank you very much for the huge support of all of you! You've been so kind and nice with your comments!




































I hope you keep visiting me here, I have a lot of nice things coming up!

Thanks again Estée, this is beyond awesome.

  3. Fran!!! Casi me da un paro cardíaco cuando vi esto. Essiebutton y tu son unas de mis personas favoritas de la vida. Las dos tienen cosas en común y es que son espontáneas y bknes sin esfuerzo. Ambas son talentosas en cosas completamente diferentes y sé que si siguen así con esa esencia lograrán mucho mucho más : )

    Un abrazo! : ) mucho ánimo y fuerza. Si te sientes solita allá tienes toda una comunidad que cada día crece y que se enamora de tu trabajo y de ti por supuesto.
