ABOUT ME ·')">
Welcome to my new blog!
I have decided to start a new one because I felt I needed a fresh start, so here I am! If you didn’t know I already had one blog, now it’s the time to pay it a visit to see what I have been doing from 2007 to august 2012.
I will be very glad if you decide to become part of this new journey, so, if you don’t want to miss any of my posts, you can subscribe via email or via RSS (you can find the links in the side bar)
So, let’s go!
ABOUT ME ·')">
Who is behind Gusosos’ Land?
My name is Raquel, and these are the things I like to do the most: drawing, crafts, taking pictures and sewing. It is hard for me to stick to just one of them, because I get bored easily, so I change from one project to another without even realizing it.
I am not the kind of illustrator that was born with a pencil in her hand, and that is drawing all day long. On the other hand, I am planning new projects and looking for new things to do all day long.
I must also say that I have not always been like this, I was the exact opposite actually… It was not so long ago that I was not as active as I am now, it is something that has grown on me little by little.
ABOUT ME ·')"> I have worked as a graphic designer for some years, so I just can not help to put a lot of attention to details, for example in my packagings, or in the design of my blog and my website, etc… It is not just that I can not help it, I really enjoy doing it!
Some years ago, in July 2007, I began to discover the world of blogs, so I decided to have one of my own. At that time I was starting to draw a little more because I did not have a lot of things to do at my work, so I started to secretly draw without being noticed.
When the time to give a name to my blog arrived, I knew that I wanted something a little strange, catchy, easy to find in search engines, but I could not find anything I liked.
At that moment I was starting to draw 2 characters called Boo and Gusoso. Boo was a little girl with curly hair and freckles and Gusoso was her best friend, a tiny beast half worm, half bear. (In spanish gusano+oso= Gusoso)
So I finally decided to use the name Gusosos because I thought it really matched what I was looking for, and I could always change it if I ended up not liking it.
And here I am, 5 years later, with the same name, but transformed to Gusosos’ Land, because since then I have had to make room for a lot of new characters and a lot of new ones that are still to come…
