A kitten has arrived

April 2022

This work has been created by the artist in collaboration with his 3 years old daughter, who wrote the story. Yago has designed her drawing and writing on his PC.
The story is the following:

“A kitten has arrived”

Once upon a time, there was an elephant named Hanako.

Hanako went to a park, stumbling on the way.
A crow flew away, stealing a bento.

The sun fought for the bento.
The crow got angry.
Then, Miki-chan and Maki-chan
Cut the crow into pieces.

The sky turned into a monster and fell.
Then, the rain started.
Then, a poop baby was born.
He cried: “wah-wah”.

The rain baby cried: “Where is my mama?”
The rain girls held each other's hands.

The cherry kicked the ball and ate bugs.
Someone walked over a pool: splish-splash.

The moon wore glasses,
And raised her chin.
The moon went to school.

The bug dropped the cherry.
Then he carried his house away.
I stepped on an egg yolk.
A Wiggly Worm got angry.
