Illustrator Honor for The Cazuela That The FarmMaiden Stirred. His work is stunning. It’s saturated with color and detail, and his illustrations infuse each character with personality (one of my favorite examples is the donkey (burro) wearing stylish boots). Rafael uses acrylic paints on wood that he hand-cuts and sands. When painted, the wood grain emerges, adding texture to each scene.
After receiving the Pura Belpré Illustrator Honor, Rafael, along with the other 2012 ALA medal recipients, created a short video for the ALA’s YouTube channel. Rafael “illustrated” his gratitude. It’s a great video.
