galo-galgo


Esta é uma das ilustrações do livro Histórias tais, animais e outras mais. O texto brinca com as palavras galgo, galo e galgar.

This is one of the illustrations of my newest books.
In Portuguese the word for greyhound is similar to a expression that means jump over and at the same time similar to the word “rooster”.
So this character is as dog dressed up as a rooster or is it a rooster dressed up as a dog?
Any way it jumped and got away…
collage, acrilic, black ink
