THE CONCEITED LITTLE RAT

© 1986-2010 Armando Salas. Classic fairy tale cover from 1986. I painted TONS :-) of fairy tales in the 80's. Children could read the tale but cut and paste "pieces" also.--- I was searching on Internet for translation for LA RATITA PRESUMIDA (Spanish name) and just found this Youtube video. It's funny because I had that "movie projector", the same, when I was a child :-) OMG! Memories...! ----- Upper image: THE CONCEITED LITTLE RAT. Tempera on paper. Bottom image: Page and pieces to cut+paste. Pen, india ink and gouache.

Your creativity is beyond imagination! I loved these cut and paste pictures too! :) I bet many children would still leave their computer for such books.
