I wrote this story thinking about how many parents dedicate themselves to their work just to give their sons or daughters things they wanted or needed as a child, but actually what children truly prefer is to be by their parent’s side.  Hanging out together, sharing moments, special or not. To illustrate this book, I did all the drawings on a white paper. After that, I put everything in Photoshop, where I made all the layouts for the scenes with different backgrounds. I had to do many drawings because daddy “Bife (Mr. Sirloin)” and mommy “Bisteca (Mrs. Lambchop)” didn’t stop buying stuff!
